MOMENT OF REFLECTION

MOMENT OF REFLECTION

I created this look for the woman whose skin reflects exquisite care.

LIFESTYLE INSPIRATION

I was inspired by Korean beauty and its famed fixation on pristine complexions known as the “glass skin” effect.



SKINCARE

To achieve ultra-hydrated skin, I utilized the Korean “7 skin” method to saturate the skin with hydration. After a double-cleanse and exfoliation with Natura Bissé Diamond Glyco Extreme Peel to give skin ultimate smoothness, I gently pressed 7 thin layers of La Mer The Treatment Lotion into the skin from the center of the face outward. I wanted to be sure the skin had absorbed its maximum amount of water before applying La Mer The Revitalizing Hydrating Serum and trapping the hydration with the moisture-rich Natura Bisse Diamond Extreme Cream. Prior to makeup, I applied a generous layer of Verso Lip Serum, as it plumps the lips with hyaluronic acid and refines texture with Verso’s proprietary modern retinol, retinyl retinoate.



COLOR PALETTE

I approached this look with strong attention to detail and the goal to create skin that appears to be one continuous glowing surface. Since not all areas of the face require equal attention, I adjusted coverage throughout the complexion to maintain a weightless result. This look required a non-conventional approach to defining face architecture, as most products commonly used for highlight and contour leave behind visible boundaries of color or texture. I delicately tapped on facial treatment oil to accentuate, and a sheer application of translucent powder to de-emphasize. Tightlining the lash line achieves maximum impact with minimum product and weight, and I opted for an espresso brown liner for a softer look paired with a light sweep of black mascara. For groomed, handsome brows I applied a thickening fiber-rich brow gel with an upward sweeping motion. Some of my favorite products that can create the look are TOM FORD Traceless Stick Foundation, TOM FORD High Definition Eye Liner, TOM FORD Fiber Brow Gel, and La Mer The Renewal Oil.
