The Plumping Serum and Creaseless Concealer Used Backstage at the Oscars

From the place we sit, Oscars night time is all about glitz, glam and seamless transitions. But for Bruce Grayson, celeb make-up artist and head of make-up for this 12 months’s Academy Awards, the night is a little more hectic.

An extended night time of quick-changes and make-up touch-ups is simply one other day at the workplace for Grayson, who shared with us his tips of the commerce and trusted products used backstage to maintain our favourite celebrities trying radiant.

Must-Have Makeup 

“Concealers, blush and eyeliner are the three products that I gravitate to on Oscars night,” says Grayson, noting that “under-eye repair” is one in all the most frequent touch-ups he does backstage. For this, he likes to make use of a creamy under-eye concealer like Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Fit Concealer. “It’s lightweight and provides flawless coverage that melts into the skin.” If a touch-up requires a long-wear concealer, he opts for Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Concealer. “It provides hydration, a radiant finish, and it comes in so many shades it makes the transition from under-eyes to face foundation effortless.”

To add a fast flush of coloration backstage, Grayson loves to make use of a sweep of blush. “A tried-and-true blush I use on Oscars night is Chanel Joues Contraste blush. The colors are fabulous, layer nicely and provide a boost of color. I also love MAC Mineralized Blush, it adds soft color and radiance to skin.” 

Grayson says he fixes a variety of eyeliner backstage, too, and he normally makes use of a gel eyeliner—his favourite is Stila’s Smudge Pot—”so it may be blurred or pale earlier than it dries down so it doesn’t look too harsh.”

Skin-Care Secrets

Grayson says his number-one skin-care tip is solely utilizing merchandise that work rapidly to cleanse and hydrate. “I love cream cleansers and my favorite is QMS Deep Cleanse. It’s super gentle, and quickly removes makeup and pollutants.”

The make-up artist can be all about serums on Oscars night time, as they “work fast to smooth skin in preparation for makeup.” His favourite: “I use Boscia Vitamin B12 Hydration Booster Serum and I like to gently press into my skin with my hands to stimulate blood flow,” he says. 

Get Glowing

“As far as makeup, the best behind-the-scenes trick starts with blotting tissues to control as much or as little glow on skin,” says Grayson. “Start with the inner cheeks, as they tend to get shiny first, don’t forget the chin, and blot the forehead last. Be sure to take off enough shine to make skin look radiant and not oily.”
