Get The Look: Stella McCartney at PFW

Get The Look: Stella McCartney at PFW

The two Queens of Green teamed up to celebrate the world of sustainable luxury at Paris Fashion Week. Tata Harper was backstage with Stella McCartney to prep and prime her models for her spring/summer 2019 collection. This show was all about bringing together strength and softness for a bold, feminine, yet laid-back look. 

As two uncompromising women, Tata has long been a fan of Stella McCartney. 

Stella and I share a passion for never compromising when it comes to sustainable luxury - I'm so excited to collab on her show as we continue to push boundaries of industry standards for fashion and beauty. - Tata 

The Stella McCartney makeup look this season was an understated fresh faced look with natural skin and a dewy (but matte) finish. Backstage, Tata created the perfect base for Pat McGrath & her team, giving the models perfectly hydrated, natural and refreshed skin.

Best yet, our runway ready look is so easy to achieve from home. Follow these steps for getting that just right dewy-yet-matte face. 

STEP 1: CLEANSE 

We always start with a double cleanse for a clean slate. First, apply our Nourishing Oil Cleanser on dry skin to dissolve makeup and remove daily impurities. This was especially important for models coming from other shows, to remove any existing makeup. 

Next, we followed this with our Glow Getter hack, which consists of applying the Regenerating Cleanser, layering the Resurfacing Mask on top for five minutes and massaging in to skin for a flash facial.

STEP 2: HYDRATE

Next, apply a thick layer of Crème Riche, to act as a mask and let this absorb into skin for one minute. After fully absorbed, flood the skin with eight sprays of the Hydrating Floral Essence — let this sink in and wipe off any excess so that the skin stays plump and dewy, but still matte.

And don't forget your eyes for a fresh, dewy look! Apply our Restorative Eye Crème aruond the entire eye area to instantly hydrate and reduce the appearance of dark shadows.

STEP 3: FINISH 

We love a natural, understated and minimal makeup look. Our goal was to create a glowing, radiant base where makeup can be something fun to play with on top. To finish, we used our Be True Lip Treatment to condition and nourish - the active ingredients penetrate the lips instantly, meaning makeup can follow on an even, smooth base.
