How to Get Glowing Skin like Alicia Vikander

Alicia Vikander is the new star to watch; since her award winning role in ‘The Danish Girl’, she’s appeared in the recently released Bourne movie and will star alongside her beau in ‘The Light Between Oceans’. With so many movies in the pipeline, the star has been seen at premiers around the world showing off her signature flawless skin.

Here, celebrity make up artist and ELEMIS expert, Kelly Cornwell, shares her top skincare secrets to achieve a radiant, red-carpet ready look, just like Alicia’s.

#1 – Good Skin is Key
“Good skin is essential to any make up look, and it’s always worth spending a little extra time perfecting your skin before makeup application.”

Insider Tip: If you do have dry patches, make sure to exfoliate beforehand to prevent your base from clinging to these areas (try Papaya Enzyme Peel). Follow with moisturiser; Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is a favorite among my celebrity clientele, it sits really well under make up and creates a dewiness.

#2 – Gel Masks
“I never apply makeup on a client without first using the Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks. They are so lightweight and ideal for my kit, and because of their cooling and de-puffing properties they are perfect for early morning shoots too.”

#3 – Get the Glow
“Prepping skin for the red carpet is all about adding moisture and illuminating. I start with Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm (a favourite of Suki Waterhouse) to remove all traces of makeup and impurities. I then finish with an illuminating primer like Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm which is light reflective without being sparkly.”

Insider Tip: The BIOTEC Radiance Renew facial at The House of ELEMIS is a must for dull complexions and to help restore moisture and vitality to the skin.

#4 – Don’t forget your neck
“It’s important not to neglect this area, especially if you’re wearing something low-cut. Products with a lighter texture are great to use on the neck, like the Pro-Collagen Neck & Décolleté Balm which firms, soothes and hydrates. Apply product with upward strokes, going against gravity to lift the area. ”

Insider Tip: Take the product up to the chin and along the jawline using the palm of the hand or back of the hands to prevent dragging this delicate area.
