The Simple Backstage Secret To A Perfect Glow

Want skin that looks like this? Oui please!

Created for fall’s Isabel Marant show, make up artist Lisa Butler told VOGUE how she achieved this incredible, seemingly hyper-real skin finish (and it’s easy)…

The Isabel Marant girl ‘doesn’t really like make up’ said Lisa, who created this beautiful, ‘lit from within skin’ by swirling a brush over three shades of {BECCA}’s {Shimmering Skin Perfector} – ‘Opal’, ‘Rose Gold’ and ‘Topaz’ – and applying the mix to cheeks, bridge of the nose and cupid’s bow.

The warm blend of pale gold to soft bronze shades is perfect for ‘glossing up’ all girls’ complexions. Try it now, paired with an ‘oomphed-up’, flattened brow (much more ‘rive gauche’ than a high arch), and a hint of cheekbone-defining contour.

You’ll look instantly like you were born within sight of ‘la seine’. Just add Isabel to complete your ‘FG’ (French girl) aesthetic.
