Through the Prism of an Artist
Ciao! Today I would like to talk about a new skincare brand that I recently discovered and I am deeply infatuated with.
This luxurious skincare range combines natural ingredients and scientific research, providing the best of both for genuine tangible results.
The products are comprised of active ingredients and antioxidants such as coenzyme CoQ10, vitamin E, vitamin C and alpha-lipoic acid. These components provide a comprehensive benefit of protecting the skin from aesthetic damages by free radicals. Advanced light diffusors strengthen and firm, producing a brightening effect. The texture is improved, while expression lines are smoothed.
What I particularly like about these products is that even though they’re packed with potent anti-ageing ingredients, they have an incredibly lightweight texture which melts into the skin leaving it hydrated and refreshed instantly. This also makes it perfect for skin preparation before makeup.
I truly love using these products on my models and clients, the makeup glides on smoothly and the whole complexion appears even and healthy with a minimum amount of foundation.
It is my speciality to treat clients to a mini facial which gives a better experience to the whole makeover service.
Usually it starts with soaking some cotton pads with the toner, and placing them onto the forehead, cheek area and chin for a few minutes, making sure the skin is toned and relaxed for the next steps.
I then follow with an eye cream, applying it in small circular motions around the orbital bone going from the outer corners to the inner corner and back around. This helps not only to relieve tension but also diminish any congestion or puffiness. The whole eye area appears instantly brighter. The product also absorbs so well that it won’t compromise the appearance of concealer.
The last step of a skin preparation before the makeup is applying the Daily Firming Hydrator. I prefer to work it into the skin with a firm but gentle massage that allows the skin to absorb the product and stimulate the blood flow.
Afterwards I don’t even need to apply primers, the foundation glides on like a dream, leaving the skin with a gorgeous, healthy glow.
I have to admit, Lucia Magnani Skincare range has proven to be every makeup artist’s dream. You can see immediate effects of the products which is necessary for smooth makeup application. These products have officially obtained a permanent position in my makeup kit. Thank you Lucia Magnani for these wonderful products!
