This year’s Met Gala theme of the evening was Manus x Machina, celebrating fashion in the age of technology. The A-listers stunned in their spectacular looks and we know that the celebrities behind the scenes preparation for the event requires a lot of help from their glam-team. Here are some backstage beauty secrets that are some of the most trusted “tricks” of the trade backstage.
1. The Model Glow
Having beautiful, flawless skin is the key to looking like a glowing goddess 24/7. With high definition cameras flashing at you every step you take, it is no wonder that celebrities are pressured to look good all the time.
In order for make-up to apply flawlessly, you need to start with a smooth base. Deep deep clean by The Sloane Clinic has got you covered, to make you look like you’re walking the carpet everyday of your life.
The ultimate in deep-cleansing, Deep Deep Clean combines microdermabrasion with a fruit acid wash, 5-10 minutes of ultrasonic deep pore purging, and a targeted facial wrap to keep breakouts at bay. You can choose from whitening wraps, to oil control wraps to hyaluronic acid wraps depending on skin type. This facial is recommended twice yearly, or more often for ‘problem’ skin types.
2. Best kept contouring secret: Cheek Sculpt
Evidence shows that our perception of physical beauty is hard wired into our being and based on how closely the features of one’s face reflect phi in their proportions. The Golden Ratio is derived from phi. Faces who confirm to this golden ratio are rated more attractive than faces that do not, as shown in the example below.
However, over-contouring is really so yesterday. Taking cues from the catwalk, the “less” approach is definitely more. For that natural contoured look, Cheek Sculpt is a specialised technique that uses highly structural hyaluronic acid fillers to augment and define the natural prominence of your cheeks, giving you the appearance of higher cheekbones.
It gives your face the similar effect of contouring, albeit without the cosmetic aid. The aim of Cheek Sculpt is not to chase lines or volumise the face. Rather it is to bring out the natural beauty and optimal proportions of each face.
Putting vitamin on your face is as important as consuming it. Vitamin Therapy at The Sloane Clinic starts with a careful cleansing and exfoliation of the skin, followed by the application of vitamins onto prepped skin. This is finished with deep infusion and a skin enhancing mask to allow maximum penetration of the vitamins into skin. This Vitamin Therapy will definitely put back the glow into your skin!
