Celebrity Makeup Artists' Secret Weapon Revealed!

Whether it’s on the sets of TV shows, movies, Broadway productions, photo shoots or fashion shows, makeup artists everywhere – and the celebrities who trust them – know that the perfect makeup application starts with beautiful skin. And just in time for awards season, we’ve gathered the inside scoop on how your readers can achieve that red-carpet look every day.

· Celebrity makeup artist Beate Petruccelli used Dermalogica’s Shave products, including Close Shave Oil and Post-Shave Balm, to care for Matt Damon and Jeff Bridges’ skin in the Oscar buzz Western adventure, ‘True Grit.’ Bridges also “loves” Active Moist and Special Cleansing Gel. “I also used Solar Defense Booster as a base on our exterior days,” said Petruccelli. She also told us, “As you know, we use a wide variation of products every day... but I must say when it comes to basic skin care Dermalogica is still everyone’s favorite.”

o Post-Shave Balm cools skin after shaving and helps prevent ingrown hairs. This product is also a fave of the vampires and werewolves on the set of ‘Twilight’!

o Active Moist is oil free, leaving skin hydrated but not shiny. Working outside for the day, like the ‘True Grit’ cast? Add a drop of Solar Defense Booster SPF30 to your daily moisturizer for instant sun protection!

· UltraCalming Cleanser is a must-have on the set of the newest X-Men movie, ‘X-Men: First Class.’ Makeup artist Clarice Gill calls the products “amazing!”

o This creamy cleanser is ideal for calming skin after a long day of makeup application and environmental assaults. Since this unique cleanser doesn’t require water, it is a convenient go-to choice for Hollywood makeup artists.

· ‘No Strings Attached’ makeup department head Tracey Levy said “everyone loved using [Dermalogica] on the movie.” Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF30 and Antioxidant HydraMist were among the Dermalogica products on the set of this film, starring Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman.

o Antioxidant HydraMist gives skin an instantly youthful appearance with its flash-firming properties. And no need to worry about spritzing on top of your already-made-up face – it leaves skin hydrated and dewy without destroying makeup! Stash a travel size of this mist in your clutch and you’ll stay refreshed all night long, whether you’re walking the red carpet or going out with friends.

· The cast of ABC’s ‘Modern Family’ has been using Dermalogica all season. Favorite products include Active Moist, Intensive Moisture Balance and Antioxidant HydraMist. Makeup artist Stephanie Massie even gives the actors Daily Resurfacer to use at home! Check out Stephanie’s guest blog on

o The exfoliating Daily Resurfacer pads smooth skin’s surface creating a bright and even canvas for makeup application. Massie loves the “ease of using this product.”

  1. Dermalogica is definitely an investment, but it pays off very well! It was sold at my cosmetology school, and ALL the estheticians were in love with it. Good stuff!
