Alicia Keys. Michael B. Jordan. Tracee Ellis Ross. Regé-Jean Web page. What do all these individuals have in frequent? In addition to having flawless pores and skin, they’re all purchasers of make-up artist and groomer Tasha Reiko Brown.
Identified for her skin-forward method to make-up, Brown has mastered the artwork of luminous, clear, and hydrated pores and skin—a signature type she likes to name “satin pores and skin.” The key? Numerous product layering however with an sudden twist.
“Certainly one of my largest tips to satin pores and skin is reversing the order of merchandise,” she tells Glamour. “I’ll lay down your moisturizer first, after which put the serum on prime of it. Usually once you layer, you placed on a serum and you then lock it in with moisturizer. However if you happen to do moisturizer first, adopted by serum, you’ll at all times have this layer of hydration that is floating on prime of the pores and skin. So once I put basis on and you then powder it strategically, you at all times have this glow that breaks via. All of my purchasers are likely to have the identical satin pores and skin texture as a result of I exploit the identical approach on everybody.”
One other magnificence scorching take? Brown sends her purchasers down the pink carpet with no spritz of setting spray. “I do not use a setting spray,” she says. “It is the minimalist in me, however I do know the make-up will maintain with out me including any additional layers on the pores and skin. Plus, setting spray dulls the pores and skin an excessive amount of generally.”
Minimalism is one thing Brown additionally extends to her personal skincare routine. Recent off working with Jordan for his Creed III promotional tour and, most just lately, the Oscars, Brown is continually on the go. “I’ve gone from Mexico to Paris to London, from London to Utah for a day, after which to New York,” she says. “I will not reduce corners with my routine, however I haven’t got an excessively sophisticated routine to start with. If I add too many issues, a variety of occasions it might probably tip over into studying greasy. That is one of many the explanation why I am a minimalist. Pores and skin must be clear and strategically moisturized.”
Forward, Tasha Reiko Brown shares her favourite skincare merchandise for Glamour‘s Drop the Routine.
I exploit the La Mousse Cleanser by Chanel. I like a cleanser. I journey loads, so I am unable to journey with one thing that is too liquidy. It is a cream cleanser, so I can put it on and let it sit for some time to dissolve the make-up. Then I therapeutic massage, therapeutic massage, therapeutic massage, earlier than I wash it off. I like the creaminess of it and the power to let it dissolve.
I am going actually pure and simply use rose water. It smells nice, and it has been confirmed to work. It is a staple that is been round for therefore lengthy. It is traditionally confirmed to be improbable.
Serums are key to my look as a result of I float it over the moisturizer. I just like the Chanel Hydra Magnificence Micro Serum. In case you instructed me I can solely use two merchandise to prep my face for the remainder of my life, it might be the Hydra Magnificence Serum and the Chanel Le Baume. These two collectively give me satin pores and skin each single time. I exploit the merchandise to focus on issues. Each product would not must hit each concern. So I like a serum that is moisturizing and tightening with a ravishing glow.
The Chanel Sublimage Le Baume as a result of I exploit straight Retin-A from the dermatologist, which is somewhat bit drying. Loads of occasions I am utilizing it in all probability a tad greater than I ought to as a result of generally my days get combined up and my schedule’s hectic. I am unable to fairly pin down when it is the final time I used it, so I will use it reasonably than not use it. When your pores and skin is dry like that, I at all times inform purchasers to show the moisturizer bottle the other way up. If it begins to seep whereas upside, it is in all probability too skinny for any individual who is absolutely, actually dry. I like this moisturizer as a result of it is a balm that stays the place you place it, so I can actually press it into the pores and skin. It doubles as eye cream too.
My face masks
I just like the Jillian Dempsey eye masks. The tray could be very handy as a result of they’re a number of use. So generally I will use it and stick it again within the tray; it is so emollient that, particularly if I am doing one thing within the morning after which within the night, I will decide it proper again up and I will sit it on my eyes for my night routine as nicely.
