“He couldn’t find a rich but weightless moisturizer to serve as a base for creating his signature glowy looks,” Ms. Tsai said. The thick Instagram makeup of the last few years had begun to feel stale. “We’re ready to hit the refresh button and live in our own skin,” she said.
For quick results, Soo-Young Kim, an aesthetician at Sofie Pavitt Studio in Lower Manhattan, favors vitamin C. She treats her clients to an AHA peel and a hydrating jelly mask with a vitamin serum to top it off ($210). “The combination really tightens, brightens and gives a moisturizing glow to the skin,” she said.
You can easily invest in vitamin C skin care for home use. Just look for smaller bottles of the stuff, Ms. Kim advised. “Vitamin C, as powerful and amazing as it is, is an unstable ingredient, which means shorter shelf life,” she said. She likes Cosrx Triple C Lightning Liquid ($27), which comes in chic little black bottles to keep the light out.
The Makeup Way
If you’re happy with your skin care the way it is, a dewy finish is another way to go. Seek out foundations that have an emollient finish, like the Westman Atelier Vital Skin Foundation Stick ($68). It contains squalane, coconut oil and camellia seed for a subdued glow.
There are also new highlighters that rely more on a translucent sheen than on the shimmer finishes of the past. The Chanel Baume Essentiel in Transparent ($45) comes in an easy-to-tote stick with no shimmer. Tyron Machhausen, a makeup artist who works with Chanel, relies on it for a dewy, sculpted look without color or contour.
“It’s all about placement,” he said. “I use it on the high points of the face: the top of the cheekbones, right below the brows on the highest point of the brow bone, the center of the top eyelid, the bridge of the nose — never go all the way to the tip of the nose — the cupid’s bow and a hint right on the highest point of the chin.”
