LANCÔME HELPS BRIDE-TO-BE CHAR­LOTTE HWANG ACHIEVE A RA­DI­ANT COM­PLEX­ION FOR HER UP­COM­ING WED­DING

Hong Kong Tatler - - Lancôme -

EV­ERY BRIDE DREAMS OF LOOK­ING RA­DI­ANT ON HER BIG DAY, BUT FEW KNOW THE PROD­UCTS AND TECH­NIQUES RE­QUIRED TO CRE­ATE THAT ALL- IM­POR­TANT GLOW. BUT AS STYLISTA CHAR­LOTTE HWANG RE­CENTLY DIS­COV­ERED, ALL YOU NEED IS QUAL­ITY MAKEUP AND A FEW TRICKS OF THE TRADE. THE FUNDRAIS­ING DIREC­TOR FOR CHAR­ITY FOODLINK FOUN­DA­TION AND OWNER OF FASH­ION BOU­TIQUE THE9THMUSE IS PRE­PAR­ING TO GET MAR­RIED THIS JUNE AND RE­CENTLY SAT DOWN WITH LANCÔME AND RENOWNED MAKEUP ARTIST GARY CHUNG FOR SOME TIPS ON HOW TO ACHIEVE A GOLDEN, DEWY COM­PLEX­ION FOR HER WED­DING DAY.

“GOOD SKIN­CARE IS ABOUT KNOW­ING WHAT YOUR SKIN NEEDS

AND RE­SPOND­ING TO IT. ASK­ING PEO­PLE IN THE IN­DUS­TRY RE­ALLY HELPS,” SAYS CHAR­LOTTE. “I WANT MY SKIN TO BE RA­DI­ANT AND ABLE TO WORK WITH MY MAKEUP ON THAT DAY.”

ONE OF THE MANY TIPS THAT GARY PASSED TO CHAR­LOTTE WAS TO USE A QUAL­ITY FA­CIAL OIL LIKE LANCÔME’S AB­SOLUE PRE­CIOUS OIL. A BLEND OF ROSE ES­SEN­TIAL OIL AND SEVEN BOTAN­I­CAL OILS, IT IS DE­SIGNED TO RE­PLEN­ISH, PAM­PER AND TRANS­FORM SKIN, MAK­ING IT SOFT AND LU­MI­NOUS. GARY ALSO REC­OM­MENDS MIX­ING A DROP OF OIL INTO CON­CEALER AND AP­PLY­ING IT AROUND THE EYES TO LESSEN THE AP­PEAR­ANCE OF WRIN­KLES, ES­PE­CIALLY AS THE BRIDE WILL BE CON­STANTLY SMIL­ING FOR PHO­TO­GRAPHS THAT DAY.

“FA­CIAL OILS ARE VERY

VER­SA­TILE. YOU CAN USE IT ALL OVER AS SKIN­CARE OR YOU CAN MIX IT WITH THE FOUN­DA­TION FOR A DEWY LOOK,” SAYS GARY.

GARY ALSO AD­VISES THE USE OF A SERUM- IN­FUSED FOUN­DA­TION SUCH AS LANCÔME’S AB­SOLUE SUB­LIME RE­JU­VE­NAT­ING ESSENCE FOUN­DA­TION, AS HE OF­TEN COMES ACROSS BRIDES WITH TIRED SKIN ON THEIR WED­DING DAY, THE RE­SULT OF THE IN­EVITABLE LACK OF SLEEP IN THE DAYS LEAD­ING UP TO THE EVENT. THE FOUN­DA­TION ALSO CON­TAINS SPECKS OF GOLDEN UN­DER­TONES THAT— WHEN AP­PLIED WITH A “KABUKI BRUSH”— CAN EN­HANCE ASIAN SKIN TONES TO ACHIEVE A GOLDEN, GLOW­ING COM­PLEX­ION. THE EF­FECT IS ES­PE­CIALLY PROM­I­NENT WHEN PAIRED WITH THE AB­SOLUE FOND DE TEINT PRESSED POW­DER.

“MY SKIN IS A LIT­TLE ON THE DRY SIDE SO IT IS VERY IM­POR­TANT THAT I NOUR­ISH AND HY­DRATE IT, I FEEL THAT THE SERUM- IN­FUSED AB­SOLUE SUB­LIME RE­JU­VE­NAT­ING ESSENCE FOUN­DA­TION WILL WORK RE­ALLY WELL WITH MY SKIN AND HELP RE­STORE ITS LU­MI­NOS­ITY. I’VE NEVER EX­PER­I­MENTED WITH FA­CIAL OILS BE­FORE SO IT WAS IN­TER­EST­ING TO LEARN ABOUT SO MANY OIL AP­PLI­CA­TION TECH­NIQUES. IN PAR­TIC­U­LAR, I WOULD LIKE TO TRY OUT HIS TRICK OF MIX­ING IT WITH THE CON­CEALER AP­PLIED AROUND MY EYES.

“I’M GLAD I HAVE LANCÔME TO RELY ON SO MY SKIN WILL LOOK BRIGHT AND LU­MI­NOUS ON MY WED­DING DAY.”
