Prep­ping the face is the first step to­ward own­ing the “per­fect skin” trend, says Melissa Gib­son, makeup artist for M.A.C, who did the makeup at shows like Kenzo, Chloé and Rick Owens, where the de­signer re­quested a pared-down look with­out “pal­ing out” the skin. “If you have five min­utes to mas­sage mois­tur­izer or es­sen­tial oil into the mod­els’ skin, it does give a bit of life back to their faces,” says Gib­son. Back­stage at Chloé, makeup artist Lu­cia Pieroni em­ployed fa­cial mas­sage to “wake up skin and give it a nat­u­ral glow.” Oth­ers, like Diane Ken­dal, Gucci West­man and Tom Pecheux—the lat­ter well known for his flash-fa­cial rou­tine and lym­phatic-mas­sage tech­nique—were seen spend­ing time press­ing skin­care prod­ucts into mod­els’ skin long be­fore they un­screwed foun­da­tion bot­tles.
