Stevi Christine is a celebrity makeup artist to the stars! Stevi Christine can boast a list of celebrity clients that includes Glee star Lea Michele, 90210 actress Jessica Lowndes and American actress Crystal Reed. So what is her secret to making some of our favourite celebrities' makeup look so flawless on the red carpet? The answer is skin prep!
How you prepare your skin before applying makeup can greatly affect how well your makeup looks, how long your makeup wears for and how it feels on the skin. If you are experiencing dry skin for example, your makeup base is more likely to appear flakey and textured in those areas.
One of the products Stevi Christine absolutely swears by to prep her celebrity clients skin before applying make up is Skinceuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier. Christine was quoted saying…
“For clients with dry or dehydrated skin, I love Skinceuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier. I always use it on clients who have been travelling a lot. It instantly hydrates and perks up skin”.
What is Skinceuticals H.A. Intensifier?
This unique formula delivers concentrated levels of hyaluronic acid, proxylane and botanical extracts of licorice root and purple rice to the skin. This unique combination delivers intense surface hydration, drawing in moisture from the outside environment into the skin. This helps to prep your skin for makeup by improving smoothness, firmness and facial plumpness.
What are the benefits of Skinceuticals H.A. Intensifier?
The Skinceuticals Hyaluronic Acid Intensifier can provide your skin with more than just one benefit, making this a staple in your skincare cabinet along with other Skinceuticals celeb clients. One of the main benefits of this serum is it provides your skin with amplified levels of hyaluronic acid, increasing your natural levels by 30%. This acts like a sponge, drawing in moisture from the outside environment and boosting hydration levels of your skin. This long lasting hydration in turn plumps up your skin and visibly improves skin's texture. This is one of the reasons it makes such an amazing skin prep product and is used in so many celebrities skincare routines.
The benefits don’t stop there, as well as hydration and skin plumpness, Skinceuticals H.A. Intensifier also reduces the look of crow’s feet (fine lines around the eyes), nasolabial folds (laugh lines or parenthesis around the mouth) and marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth down to the chin). This makes your skin appear smoother, firmer and more youthful. The reduction of these allows for makeup to sit better on the skin without collecting in fine lines. Did we also mention this product is paraben, dye-free AND suitable for all skin types? This flexibility means it can be used on a wide range of celebrity clients. No wonder Stevi Christine keeps it close to hand!
How to use Skinceuticals H.A. Intensifier?
The beauty of this product is it is easy to use and will fit seamlessly into your everyday skincare routine. Using the dropper tool, apply 4-6 drops to the palm of your hand and dab onto your chin, cheeks, forehead and neck. Repeat this once or twice a day, blending the product into your skin.
