The Grammys’ Bare-Faced Beauties
Sam Smith may have swept the Grammy Awards last night, but barely-there makeup and glowing skin swept the red carpet. Beyonce, Chrissy Teigen, Ciara, Rihanna, Gwen Stefani and Charlie XCX all rocked natural looks featuring nude lips, subtly rosy cheeks and simple eye makeup framed by bold brows.
The key to making this look work is, of course, flawless skin. In a recent article in the Wall Street Journal, beauty insiders discussed this movement toward the I-woke-up-like-this look. “A lot of women now are taking care of their skin so they don’t have to rely on makeup,” Daniel Martin, a celebrity makeup artist for Dior, told the Wall Street Journal. “For them, it’s a reallocation of time and money. They are spending more on an evening skin-care regimen and facials, and less on a morning makeup routine.
Emily Weiss, of the popular beauty blog Into the Gloss, agrees: “Having great skin allows you to ‘just wake up like this’. The better your skin, the less makeup you have to wear.”
So where do you begin to get red carpet-worthy glowing skin? Start from the inside out with a regimen of morning green juices and diet of lean protein and veggies (skip the carbs, sugar and salt). Add in light, daily exercise to get your blood circulating. Combine with daily use of The Method plus nightly use of our Lift Serum Intense and Intensive Night Treatment to amp up moisture for a fresh, dewy look.
