The Oscars Best Beauty Looks

The days (and weeks) leading up to the Academy Awards are always a whirlwind around here. This year, Dr. Lancer treated and prepped 70 clients who were attending the Oscars, pre-parties and after-parties. Here are a few of our favorite beauty looks from Hollywood’s biggest night:

Barely-there, natural makeup, teamed with beautiful skin was the definite winner in the beauty category at last night’s Academy Awards. Reese Witherspoon, Rosamund Pike and Marion Cotillard all chose a simple, pink lip paired with bold brows and a fresh, dewy glow for their walk down the red carpet. Our other favorite of the night Chrissy Teigen rocked a dark lip that popped against her flawless complexion. Nothing highlights a woman’s natural beauty more than skipping heavy makeup and letting her skin shine through.

But the ladies weren’t all we were obsessed with last night. The guys looked pretty gorgeous themselves. Our picks for Best Supporting Skin? Channing Tatum’s scruffy-meets-smooth look, Common’s polished perfection and Steve Carrell’s lovable – and handsome – mug.

How Stars Prep for the Oscars

Lancer - Oscar Prep edit

You already know many of the ways stars prep for awards season – with the Venus Legacy, stem cell facials, cleanses and months-long exercise regimes – but for the biggest red carpet of the year, it’s time to pull out the (really) big guns. Here are three cutting-edge treatments, two of which are exclusive to Lancer Dermatology, that harness the skin’s ability to self-repair. Nothing looks better on the red carpet than a natural glow, which is why we love these three non-invasive, filler-free treatments that will make anyone ready for the glow of the spotlight – whether it’s the Oscars or a real-life red carpet.

PicoWay
PicoWay is an innovative dual wavelength laser that fires one thousand times faster than the fastest laser currently available to the medical community. The ultra-fast picosecond bursts of energy transmitted to the tissue enable the laser to break up pigment more effectively and trigger the body’s own self-repair mechanisms. Dr. Lancer is the first dermatologist in the United States to have this laser in practice. His decision to use this technology is bolstered by the fact that the laser’s ability to trigger self-healing in the skin aligns perfectly with his anti-aging philosophy of stimulating healing self-repair.

Venus Viva
Venus Viva is a NanoFractional Radio Frequency machine that is designed to reduce pore size, correct textural irregularities, soften and diminish wrinkles, and tighten skin laxity, all with minimal downtime and discomfort. The machine uses consistent selectional dermal heating to achieve optimal, immediate and long term results. Dr. Lancer is the first dermatologist in the US to have this machine in his practice.

The Vampire Facial 
Technically known as PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Microneedling, the “Vampire Facial” involves taking a patient’s blood, putting it in a centrifuge so that the plasma separates from the red blood cells, and then using a microneedling pen to aerate the skin, while applying the plasma topically. The needling stimulates the fibroblasts in the skin to speed up production of collagen, elastin and growth factor, giving skin an amazing glow. This treatment also corrects fine lines, pigmentation, and topical scars. It is ideal to have in adjunct to regular use of The Method because it employs the same science, the skin’s ability to self-repair.

5 Minutes With… Celebrity Makeup Artist Kathy Jeung

LSC-5MinutesWithKathyJeung-1

We have some real luminaries pass through the halls of Lancer Dermatology, and when fashion and celebrity makeup artist Kathy Jeung stops by, it always brightens our day. Kathy has worked with Rita Ora, Rashida Jones, Dita Von Teese, Nichole Sherzinger, Padma Lakshmi and Natasha Bedingfield, not to mention just about every fashion mag out there. The result: an endless knowledge of beauty and skincare, what works…and what doesn’t. Here’s what we learned from her in just 5 minutes:

Lancer Skincare: What difference does good skin care make in your line of work?

Kathy Jeung: For me, proper skin preparation with good skincare is the most important step to a getting a great makeup look. Skin is really the canvas onto which makeup is applied, so how makeup lies on the skin, looks on the face, and its staying power is directly related to products used on the skin beforehand.

LS: Are there certain skin issues that you find common among clients that need covering up?

KJ: Dark circles and puffiness are a common issue. I’ll use Lancer Eye Contour Lifting Cream to reduce swelling and brighten under the eye, allowing me to minimize the amount of cover-up I’ll use to disguise the problem. I really believe that using skincare tailored to skin type or problem is key to help the issue before makeup, rather than using more makeup to cover it up.

Another common problem I encounter year round are dry, dehydrated lips. Same as with skincare, if the lips aren’t prepared for lip products, makeup will work against you and magnify the problem. I like to use a 2-step method of applying a lip ointment followed by a lip balm or salve. If the lips are starting to peel, use a lip scrub and then apply ointment or salve.

LS: Do you have a favorite product in the Lancer Skincare range?

KJ: I love Lancer Fade Serum Intense Brightening Complex

LS: What’s your ultimate glowing skin tip?

KJ: To refresh makeup and give the skin a healthy glow, moisten a BeautyBlender sponge with mineral or spring water spray and dab all over your face. For even more dewiness, rub a small drop of moisturizer between your palms and lightly press into skin along temples, tops of cheekbones and sides of face

LS: What is the most unexpected piece of advice has Dr. Lancer given you?

KJ: I have to thank Dr. Lancer for a key piece of advice he gave me quite a few years ago: apply skin products in thin layers. That completely changed the efficacy of the products I used and maximized their benefits, as opposed to my thinking that piling on more of something was better!
