Makeup Artist Sir John Turned His Clients Into Real-Life Oscar Statues Tonight

Updated 04/20/19

Attention: Sir John, makeup artist to the stars (including, ahem, the likes of Mary J. Blige and Beyoncé), just gave us the golden ticket for dazzling Oscar-worthy skin—literally. And while we've always known celebrities go to some great lengths for the sake of ultra-glowy skin (especially around award season), we're not sure we've ever seen the yellow-hued likes of Sir John's latest Instagram post. However, considering countless actors will be going home with gilded statuettes this evening, you could say the shade is fitting, no?

So what exactly is the mysterious elixir? According to Sir John, it's Sol de Janeiro's soon-to-be-launched Brazilian Bod Buff ($25). And yes, the results are just as delectable as they sound.

Launching in just nine short days on March 13 on Sephora.com and in stores March 30, Sir John attributes the body-buffing mask for creating the quintessential canvas for red carpet–ready skin, sharing with his Instagram followers, "I just went through a ton of this product on my girls. It's a mask and scrub that makes your skin into the perfect glowing canvas. It's my secret to giving them that Oscar-worthy skin."

Following the highly lauded likes of such brand favorites as the Brazilian Bum Bum Cream ($25) and the Brazilian Touch Hand Cream ($15), Sol de Janeiro's newest addition does so much more than turn your skin a very Instagrammable shade of goldenrod. In fact, it's basically a luxe, spa-worthy experience in a travel-ready tube. Intrigued yet?

Featuring skin-renewing ingredients like crushed Brazilian quartz, Amazonian clay, and mouthwatering fragrances inspired by salted caramel and pistachio, the brand-new formula not only transports you (mentally, at least) to the beach in two seconds flat, but it also reinvigorates skin with an innovative dual function that's one part mask, one part scrub. If you're looking to extract impurities like whiteheads and blemishes, opt for the calming and nourishing mask, or if you're looking to exfoliate, try it as a dynamic scrub.

Post-application, skin (if we're taking Sir John's word for it) is left soft, smooth, and shimmering.
