Perfectly Radiant with Julie Bowen @ the SAG Awards

JulieBowenSAG2013-211x300Julie Bowen’s Makeup Artist, Heather Currie, shares her secrets for perfect awards show skin!

Celebrity Makeup Artist Heather Currie created a show stopping red carpet look for actress Julie Bowen at the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards (SAGs), which took place Sunday January 27th. Here, Currie shares her top tips and best-kept secrets for awards show- worthy skin using products by Lancer Skincare.

Q. Julie Bowen always ‘glows’ on the red carpet, but it can’t all be good genes. What skin advice do you give her and other celebrity clients leading up to a major red carpet event/awards show such as the SAG’s? Do you give them any sort of “rescue kit/hero products” to use at home?

A. In preparation for awards season, it’s important to properly exfoliate, cleanse and moisturize the skin daily at home. I recommend Lancer Skincare’s 3-step Method (Polish, Cleanse and Nourish), which ensures smooth and hydrated skin for the big day. One or two days before the actual event, I also like to use a protein-based moisturizer, Overnight Rescue Relief, a rich evening crème that plumps skin and gives a youthful glow. As a makeup artist it makes my job easier when my clients use a combination of moisturizing and nourishing products on their skin, because the make up enhances their natural skin health and beauty and does not need to be layered on thickly. 

Lancer Skincare’s 3-step Method (Polish, Cleanse and Nourish) was actually featured on Oprah, see the video Here!

Q. What is the worst skin disaster you’ve been faced with in getting a client ready for a red carpet event?

A. Celebrities are just like everyone else – the night before a big event, nerves and anxiety can prevent a good night’s sleep. It’s always important to use a good eye crème that will moisturize and tighten the delicate skin around the eyes and eliminate dark circles. I love Eye Bright Illuminator because it camouflages and brightens under eye skin, and also makes any wrinkles/folds look filled in and plumped up. It’s great for important events when my clients need to look their best!Eye Bright Illuminatorx

Q. What do you consider to be the single most important skincare and/or prep product to create a smooth canvas and ensure long-lasting makeup (prevent caking and layering in wrinkles/folds)?
A. Exfoliation is key! Not only to rejuvenate the skin, but also create a soft and even base for makeup to adhere to. Like a smooth canvas, this also helps makeup stay on longer without looking ‘muddy’ or flaky.

Q. What is your favorite Lancer Skincare product for personal use, and why?
A. It’s really difficult for me to choose just one Lancer Skincare product because there are several I can’t live without! As a makeup artist I know that the best accompaniment for beautiful makeup is beautiful skin, and that means exfoliating and moisturizing daily along with using an anti-aging product. My picks are Polish, Nourish and Tri Defense CO-q10 Serum.

Q. How will Julie Bowen’s fashion and/or hair choices for the SAG Awards dictate the makeup you select?

A. When getting Julie ready for an awards show, the dress will dictate “the look”. I will want to use colors, shading and contouring that complements what she is wearing (i.e. soft, dramatic). Once I see the dress, I also work in conjunction with the hair stylist to make the whole look comes together. Julie has such beautiful features, skin and bone structure; there isn’t much I can do to make her look bad, even if I tried!

A Fresh-Face Glow with Amy Poehler…the SAGs

Makeup Artist to the stars Robert Moulton shares his skin care secret weapons to achieve a radiant and long-lasting red carpet look! Celebrity Makeup Artist Robert Moulton has worked with some of Hollywood’s leading ladies, creating stunning red carpet looks for Elizabeth Banks, Leighton Meester, Olivia Munn, Kristen Wiig and Jamie Lynn-Sigler (to name a few). For the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards (SAGs), which took place on Sunday January 27th, Moulton prepped, primed and glammed up actress Amy Poehler to create a healthy and fresh-faced glow for her walk down the red carpet. Here, he shares his top skin care tips for lasting makeup using products by Lancer Skincare.

Q. Hollywood’s A-listers always ‘glow’ on the red carpet, but it can’t all be good genes. What skin regimen do you advise your clients do beforehand to get their skin in shape leading up to a major awards show? Do you give them any sort of “rescue kit/hero products” to use at home?

A. I suggest products that help with de-puffing, smoothing and hydrating the eye area to create a ‘bright-eyed’ appearance. Before any red carpet event I always recommend Kerstin Florian Correcting Eye Rescue – the soothing eye pads visibly plump for a more luminous, well-rested and youthful look. Right before stepping onto the red carpet I also give my clients a concealer to keep in their bags for touch-ups, so makeup stays blended and malleable.

Q. What is the basic (or most common) skin issue your clients face during red carpet season? And what products do you use to address this?

A. My clients always want to maintain that ‘fresh’ feeling of just having their makeup done, and the best way to achieve this is to ensure their skin is properly hydrated. I lightly spritz Kerstin Florian Rehydrating Neroli Water all over the face before applying make up and throughout the evening to set the look and keep it red carpet bullet proof!

Q. What additional skin care and/or prep products do you recommend to create a smooth canvas and ensure long-lasting makeup (prevent caking and layering in wrinkles/folds)?

Eye Bright Illuminatorx
A. The eye area for me is the most important part of the face, and this includes not only prepping the under eye area but also the lids and brow bone. I love Lancer Skincare Eye Bright Illuminator, which not only hydrates, but also brightens. After using this, I notice how smooth eye color lays on the lids and prevents shadow color from creasing.

Q. A big trend right now is the ‘dewy’, glowing look. What is the best way to achieve this without making skin appear oily/shiny?

A. The best way to give skin that perfect glow is to mix your liquid foundation with a nourishing serum. I like to add a few drops of Kerstin Florian Hyaluronic Serum, which attracts water to the skin to maintain softness and suppleness.

Q. What are your favorite Lancer Skincare and Kerstin Florian products to use on your own skin, and why?

MultiVitaminCremeA. As a celebrity makeup artist, I often travel back and forth from the east and west coasts and am always under various lighting both indoors and out, so it’s important to keep my skin moisturized. Lancer Skincare Eye Bright Illuminator keeps my eyes hydrated and awake, while Kerstin Florian Correcting Multi-Vitamin Day Crème with SPF 30 hydrates the rest of my face with vitamins and the added benefit of SPF. I like to think of these two products as my security blankets!
