To fete the ar­rival of Kiehl’s skin­care at Sephora Canada, ELLE Canada and Kiehl’s global con­sult­ing makeup artist Nina Park hosted an event at Toronto’s Bloor Street lo­ca­tion where Park shared the skin­care se­crets she uses to get her celebrity clients red-car­pet ready. Missed out? Here are the big­gest take­aways.

1. SKIN­CARE IS THE KEY TO FLAW­LESS MAKEUP AP­PLI­CA­TION.

“I al­ways start with skin­care— it’s the most im­por­tant step,” says Park. “It makes makeup much eas­ier to ap­ply.” She ded­i­cates the first 10 to 15 min­utes with ev­ery client to cleans­ing their skin, ap­ply­ing a mask—she loves the Cal­en­dula & Aloe Sooth­ing Hy­dra­tion Masque—and do­ing a fa­cial mas­sage.

2. USE TONER LIKE YOU WOULD USE POW­DER TO MATTIFY SKIN.

Af­ter the hydrating mask, Park uses fa­cial cot­ton pads to cre­ate a DIY sheet mask. She pulls apart the cot­ton into thin lay­ers, sat­u­rates them with Cal­en­dula Herbal-Ex­tract Al­co­hol-Free Toner and ap­plies them strate­gi­cally to the oily ar­eas of the face. “It’s great for the T-zone,” says Park. “It tones the skin but doesn’t leave too much

3. USE MOIS­TUR­IZER TO HIGH­LIGHT.

One of Park’s favourite prod­ucts is Glow For­mula Skin Hy­dra­tor. She uses her fingers to ap­ply it down the nose, above the brows and on ei­ther side of the chin. “For women with oilier skin, this works as a mois­tur­izer on its own,” she says. For those who need more mois­ture, Park ap­plies a dime-size amount of Ul­tra Fa­cial Cream to the face and then goes over it with a fa­cial-mas­sage tool to help it ab­sorb be­fore ap­ply­ing foun­da­tion. mois­ture be­hind, so there’s no flash­back in pho­tos.”
