Is that glow from the Oscars? March 1, 2011

There were several men on the red carpet that had either a tanned look or an o-glow (oscar-glow).  One recognized star, Colin Firth was noticeable to my trained eye.  I found out he was prepped by Kyoku for Men.

Here’s what Georgie Eisdell’s used on Mr. Firth’s skin: “When I’m grooming someone for the red carpet, I never have a lot of time, so my main goals are to plump, hydrate and increase blood circulation in the skin to allow a natural glow shine through. Massaging products into the skin really thoroughly and using a pressing motion for application are both great ways to increase blood circulation and let color to rise to the surface. To prep Colin for the Oscars, I started with Kyoku for Men Razor Repair Balm, which contains witch hazel and aloe vera, to combat post-shave redness and calm his skin; it’s a great anti-inflammatory product, and I always keep it in my kit for emergencies! Then, facialist Natalie Eleni applied the Kyoku for Men Eye Fuel to Colin’s Eyes using lymphatic drainage movements (using your ring finger, gently pat around the orbital bone in an outward motion towards the ear), which are great for re-energizing and de-puffing tired eyes. Next, I applied the Oil Control Lotion down the T zone to absorb any excess oil and prevent Colin from looking greasy. It was very important to lightly matify his skin in specific areas to ensure that he stayed shine-free all night long. I then used Kyoku for Men Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 to refresh his skin and keep it looking healthy and rested.”
