Beauty Fix: The reason you should use oils on your face, how to perfect a ponytail and other celebrity-inspired hair and makeup tips!
Do I need a makeup artist to get the glowing skin I keep seeing on celebs at Cannes?
Actually, no. You can totally get rich-looking skin without having a makeup artist. My friends seeking skin care advice often gasp when I admit that my skin care secret is using—and not avoiding—oil. For years we believed that oil equals acne, and oil-free equals clarity, but that’s simply not true. Even though oil isn’t the fundamental difference between your skin and say, Diane Kruger‘s, the benefits of applying a facial oil seem endless: they moisturize deeply below the dermis, protect from environmental damage from within and clarify cells to even out your skin tone. Above all else, they deliver that super-dewy glow that celebrities have—and we want. Different oils serve different purposes. Bobbi Brown Extra Face Oil ($62, sephora.com), for instance, is comprised of jojoba, almond, olive and sesame oil to soothe dryness and will give your complexion a boost of radiance, while Jason Purifiying Tea Tree 100% Organic Oil ($15, jason-natural.com), is a singular, topical oil with antiseptic qualities to defend against blackheads and breakouts. Use one in the morning or evening in replacement of your moisturizer and within a month you should notice a serious difference in your complexion.
