Prep and Prime Like A Pro! Makeup Artist Approved Skincare ✓

Ask any makeup artist and they will tell you that the key to a flawless application is making sure your skin is properly prepped. It’s important to incorporate skincare products into your ritual that smooth, calm and hydrate your skin for a balanced complexion and a blank canvas for makeup. Prepping your skin with the right formulas help your makeup to go on smooth, melt into your skin and look more natural (and last all day!).

A LIGHT-WEIGHT, ULTRA-ABSORBENT MOISTURIZER

If your skin is dehydrated and dry, your foundation will never sit properly on your skin. A crucial part of skin prep before foundation is a light-weight moisturizer that delivers deep hydration, but also fully absorbs leaving zero greasy residue. Our HYDRATING PETAL CREAM does just that. Pure Hyaluronic Acid and Hibiscus Peptides deliver daily moisture that leaves your skin balanced before applying makeup.

Celebrity makeup artist KINDRA MANN counts on this moisturizer [Hydrating Petal Cream] often to prep skin before applying makeup for her clients. “The intelligent ingredients in this moisturizer make it a standout face lotion that I will use again and again and again,” she says.

A PORE SMOOTHING, PRIMING SPF

Our innovative sunscreen, LUXURY SUN RITUAL, has become a cult-favorite among makeup artists for not only protecting the skin with SPF 30, but also beautifully blurring pores and priming your skin for foundation. Read what just a few of these talented artists had to say about Luxury Sun Ritual SPF 30 and it’s pore smoothing, priming benefits

“I have never seen anything like it! This formula works beautifully as a pore smoothing primer that offers a blurring, soft-focus effect on makeup with SPF protection as well.” - ALLAN AVENDAÑO, Celebrity Makeup Artist

“It is an essential part of my kit — whether creating a look for the red carpet or a photoshoot, its an SPF that checks all the boxes. It’s clean, mineral, reef-safe, sheer and invisible. It’s like a second skin. It feels so amazing.” — RENÉE LOIZ, Celebrity Makeup Artist

“I love this SPF because not only does it protect you from harmful sun exposure it’s also great for blurring pores which makes it an ideal 2-in-1 makeup primer.” — KENDAL FEDAIL, Celebrity Makeup Artist

PRO-TIP FOR A GLOWING COMPLEXION

One of our favorite makeup artist tips for glowing skin comes from HEBA THORISDOITTR, head makeup artist for the wildly popular film Don’t Worry Darling. Heba mixed a few drops of our LUXURY BEAUTY SERUM into the foundation for actress Florence Pugh to give her a glowing complexion in the film. The perfect pro-tip for giving your skin a glowing boost when applying your foundation and infusing extra nourishing skincare into your makeup look.

DON’T FORGET YOUR LIPS

Have you ever gone to apply your favorite lipstick and your lips are dry, preventing smooth and evenly distributed color? Not ideal. Keeping your lips smooth and hydrated is the key to preparing them for other lip products.

Our Luxury Lip Oils double as both a lip-drenching dose of hydration and a subtle wash of color to either wear on their own or to moisturize your lips before applying lipstick. Makeup artist REBECCA HICKEY reached for our Luxury Lip Oils on set of The White Lotus Season 2, to give the actors luminous, hydrated lips worthy of a Sicilian vacation.

Celebrity makeup artist LISA AHARON loves our Luxury Lip Oils for “keeping lips hydrated to create the illusion of volume that can be lost with age.” She adds that they can also “help to smooth lips and fill fine lines.” 

Incorporating just a few powerful, effective formulas into your skincare ritual can prep and treat your skin for your most flawless, long-lasting makeup application yet. Taking the time to prep your skin makes all the difference.

Winter Skin Solutions with SAINT JANE (Say Goodbye to Dry Skin)

Winter Skincare Favorites to combat Dry, Dull Complexions All Season Long

When the temperature drops, we bundle up with thick jackets, boots and scarves to keep cozy, forgetting that the skin on our face stays exposed to the harsh elements every day. It’s so important to give your skin extra TLC during the cold winter months because it stays constantly exposed to cold, dry air and unforgiving elements. In most places the temperature and the humidity both drop which is the least favorable conditions for balanced, healthy skin to thrive. Nearly all skin types struggle during the winter in some way, calling for a new skin ritual action plan. So what to do? Give your skin nourishing, moisture-drenching products that bring your skin back to life…all winter long, from head to toe.

Hydration Hydration Hydration

The most common effect of winter temperatures on our skin is loss of moisture. In order to bring your skin back to a balanced state of hydration, using a daily moisturizer from head to toe is essential. 

  • For the face: Our Hydrating Petal Cream is infused with Pure Hyaluronic Acid which powerfully draws in and seals moisture into your skin, for a long-lasting moisture boost. Apply 2-3 pumps every morning after cleansing and serums.
  • For the body: Our Hydrabloom Body Silk is the ideal daily body moisturizer for dry skin. Also formulated with Hyaluronic Acid + our Sea Flower Complex, our light-weight body silk intensely hydrates, absorbs instantly and beautifully combats dry winter skin.

Smooth and Boost Brightness

Your skin can also become dull and flakey during the winter months meaning you need to incorporate products that have active ingredients to slough away dead skin, regenerate cell-turnover and prep your skin to receive moisture.

  • For the face: Our The C-Drops have 20% Vitamin C and citrus actives that work to visibly smooth and renew the surface of your skin, giving you a boost of brightness and a smooth canvas for all your hydrating products to layer over.
  • For the body: Luxury Body Serum is packed with citrus like Pink Grapefruit and Blood Orange that work to smooth dead skin for a boost of radiance and nourishment.

Don’t Forget Your Eyes!

Your under-eyes are the most delicate part of your face and often the first area to show signs of aging and distress. Our Bright Repair Eye Cream is ultra-hydrating with Green Tea and Grapeseed, but also brightening with 10% Vitamin C for total nourishment. Apply a liberal amount under your eyes every evening after cleansing and serums.

Retinol in Winter? Yes!

Incorporating treatments into your winter skincare ritual is also important to keep your skin ecosystem in regular balance…exfoliate, nourish, hydrate REPEAT.

Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair

 

Especially in the winter months, incorporating a gentle Retinol treatment 1-2 times per week will help exfoliate dead skin cells and boost cell-turnover. Our Sacred Sleep Overnight Repair is the ideal Retinol treatment for winter, because in addition to the 0.5% Retinol in the formula is Violet Flower and Lavender which are both extremely calming florals. These active ingredients are infused into an ultra-rich, hydrating night cream that keeps your skin moisturized and plump while you sleep. Apply 1-2x per week as a last step in your evening skincare ritual.

For those evenings where you aren’t using Sacred Sleep, our best-selling Luxury Beauty Serum can be applied as a last step for an ultra-rich drench of hydration and skin-calming nutrients. We blend active florals like Rose, Helichrysum and Sunflower to deeply nourish and hydrate your winter skin.
