HOW TO GET CATE BLANCHETT’S RED CARPET GLOW
The Oscar winner and SK-II ambassador shares her beauty secrets for the big night
When you’re a constant fixture on the Hollywood red carpet, like SK-II global brand ambassador Cate Blanchett, your skin always needs to be ready for its close-up.
The Academy Award-winning actress - who was also nominated for the Best Actress Oscar this year for her role in Carol - opens up to SK-II about her pre-event skincare rituals and red carpet beauty routine, providing tips that you can apply to create your own paparazzi-ready look.
TIP #1: INVEST IN YOUR SKIN DESTINY
Cate admits that she owes her crystal clear skin to SK-II’s signature Facial Treatment Essence, which she’s loyally used for more than a decade.
“For many years, I have spoken about the profound effect that this ‘miracle water’ has had on my skin," Cate said. "Having used SK-II Facial Treatment Essence for 15 years, I can confidently say it has not only transformed my complexion, but quite possibly changed the destiny of my skin as well.”
TIP #2: PAMPER YOUR SKIN
When there's an important event coming up, Cate takes extra care to ensure her skin stays well-hydrated and healthy by using Facial Treatment Oil. The soothing facial oil, subtley scented with lavender, gives intense moisturization to the skin, ensuring it's baby-smooth and supple on the big night. “It is one of the most hydrating products I’ve ever used," said Cate. "Just a few drops keep my skin dewy and hydrated.”
Cate's makeup artist, Jeanine Lobell, also shared this useful tip for achieving the actress's red carpet look: "When it was time to apply foundation, I mixed in a few drops of the new Facial Treatment Oil which instantly hydrated Cate's skin, creating a dewy glow," Jeanine said. "Having a good base for makeup application is the key to a beautiful final makeup look."
TIP #3: REVEAL YOUR INNER GLOW
To achieve a natural “glow from within” radiance, Cate uses GenOptics Aura Essence, a whitening serum that instantly penetrates the skin to brighten up dull skin. "The SK-II GenOptics Aura Essence leaves my skin feeling moisturized and gives it great luminosity,” said Cate.
TIP #4: STAY HYDRATED
To refresh her skin and makeup look while on-the-go, Cate slips the Mid-Day Miracle Essence into her clutch. Filled with Pitera™-packed essence, the handy spray bottle gives her skin an instant boost of nourishing hydration throughout the day, whether she's on the red carpet or at an Oscars after-party.
"I applied the Mid-Day Miracle Essence over the makeup to keep it looking dewy and glowing," said Jeanine. "It's my absolute must-have because it prevents makeup from caking. It's the perfect final step for the red carpet.”
