In case you've missed the news or happen to live in an area that isn't particularly frigid this time of year, it's been cold in New York. Like the kind of cold where you bundle up in 18 layers of clothing and contemplate wearing a sleeping bag in public (hey, it's New York Fashion Week—what better time to start a new trend). But because the temperature has been so offensively chilly, the models have needed a bit of extra TLC before their makeup is applied to take care of dryness, flakiness, and redness. That's why Dr. Jart+ partnered with Opening Ceremony to "restore the models' natural glow" and prep the skin for the "radiant makeup look" the designers were aiming for. Keep scrolling to find out how they did it!
With the help of celebrity makeup artist Nina Park, the models' excess makeup and impurities were removed using Dr. Jart+ Dermaclear Micro Water ($32). Because the product is formulated with active hydrogen water, the water densely removes debris in a flash, and the added minerals like calcium, phosphorus, potassium, and silicic acid tone and brighten the skin.
Next, to compensate for the frigid temps and subsequently dehydrated complexions, Park applied the Water Replenishment Cotton Sheet Mask ($8) and left it on for five minutes. The mask claims to have excellent adhesion, a must for those of us who hate sheet masks that slip.
Finally, the Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer (launching May 2016) was applied to the skin for instant brightening and a dewy finish—a perfect pre-makeup application step for an overall glowy look.
And there you have it! Not too difficult, right? What's your usual pre-makeup routine? Please tell us below!
