GET JING LUSI’S “LIT FROM WITHIN” GLOW!

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018
Actress Jing Lusi looked radiant on the Hollywood red carpet for the global premiere of Crazy Rich Asians.  Makeup artist, Michael Ashton, highlighted Lusi’s smooth and glowing skin, which was “lit from within.”  He first prepped her skin using the DERMAFLASH 2.0 LUXE, which “gently exfoliates the skin and reveals natural radiance.”  Then he massaged a combination of Sisley Black Rose Precious Face Oil followed by Embryolisse Lait‑Crème Concentré to hydrate and plump the skin. “By spending a little extra time on really preparing the skin before foundation it makes creating a flawless cashmere finish skin that much easier,” he shares.  Ashton next applied Marc Jacobs Beauty Shameless Foundation and Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage to even out Lusi’s complexion before highlighting her many assets with Tom Ford Illuminating Highlight Pen and Charlotte Tilbury The Retoucher .
To moderate any unintended shine, Ashton used Marc Jacobs Beauty Finish-Line Perfecting Coconut Setting Powder and then added a final glow with the brand’s Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter.  Ashton created Lusi’s dramatic brow with Tom Ford Brow Sculptor and M.A.C Brow Set, before defining her eyes with Marc Jacobs Beauty O! Mega Eyeshadow in Daddi-O and The Big O! and Fineliner in Au (Spice).  After applying several coats of Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara, Ashton added a few of Ardell’s individual Short Lashes.  To complete the look, he lined Lusi’s lips with M.A.C Lip Liner in Subculture and applied Marc Jacobs Beauty New Nudes Lipstick in Moody Margot.  To see all of Ashton’s products, please read more …
