Models, designers and photographers will create a media frenzy for New York Fashion Week Sept. 7-13. But just because you may not be walking the runways or gawking at celebs from the sidewalks of the Big Apple, you can still get your skin camera-ready.
Whether you're Snapchatting a night out with friends or upping your selfie game, get camera-perfect skin with these tips:
Handle the eye area with care
Dark circles are extra-noticeable on camera, so be sure to treat your eye area with care before heading out for a night on the town. You can use the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Hydra-Gel Eye Masks to soothe and hydrate the fragile skin around your eyes while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The ELEMIS Absolute Eye Serum is also a great tool to have in your photo-ready collection. It decongests and decreases puffiness, helping to reduce unsightly shadows on camera, while also toning the skin for a bright-eyed look.
Even out your complexion
Soothe irritation and give your skin a gorgeous glow on camera with the ELEMIS Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm. It works instantly to brighten and tighten skin for a luminous complexion that exudes vitality and looks beautiful in photos. Keep the travel-size in your bag so you can be camera-ready in a flash!
Target dark spots
Go a step further to prep your skin for photos with a product that zeroes in on dark spots. The ELEMIS White Brightening Dark Spot Corrector features a highly concentrated formula and precision-brush applicator to visibly reduce the appearance of dark marks or age spots.
Don't forget the decolletage
Unless you're wearing a turtleneck, your neck and upper chest area will also show in photos, so make sure it's all looking fine with the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Neck and Decollete Balm. It firms these delicate areas to counter crepiness, and improve the appearance of skin elasticity and smoothness.
Apply the right coverage
Once you've prepped your skin with smoothing and rejuvenating products, apply a light layer of foundation - too much will appear cakey and unnatural in photos. Since the flash from a camera can wash your complexion out, add a bit of natural-looking color with blush or bronzer. Then, brush a light dusting of highlighter across your cheekbones and forehead and down of the bridge of your nose gives you a subtle dewy glow. Now you're good to go - say cheese!
