Oscar Beauty – Helen Mirren’s Look by Kanebo
Helen Mirren’s striking radiance was perfected by a combination of makeup products from Kanebo as applied by makeup artist Elaine Offers of Exclusive Artists Management who states, “The transluscent powder feels unbelieveable……and the lipstick is gorgeous as well! I’ve always felt that the best beauty products come from Japan…love them!”
Mirren wore the popular Kanebo’s Concealer Brush in Light #1 and Medium #2 ($30 SRP) and Kanebo’s Translucent Powder ($55 SRP). The Concealer Brush is unique in a number of ways. Its is a revolutionary brush-on foundation tool designed to flawlessly cover fine lines, under-eye circles, blemishes and discoloration while treating and improving the texture and condition of skin.
Kanebo Concealer is enriched with Kanzo Extract, a traditional medicinal herb taken from the root of the licorice plant and used to gently soothe blemishes and help prevent irritation. A second key component is that of Reflecting Beads, an ingredient exclusive to Kanebo, which causes light to diffuse on the skin’s surface, thus minimizing the appearance of facial imperfections. Silk Extract — to prevent moisture loss and allow for a smooth application — and Phyto Squalane, which quickly penetrates to enhance moisture retention and prevent stretching of delicate skin are also principal ingredients.
Kanebo’s Translucent Powder provides a water proof translucent loose powder base and allows the skin to reach its silky and perfect finish. As seen on Mirren who was in her makeup for six hours before she presented the award, this heavenly finish absorbs excess sebum and prolongs the flawless finish. The moisturizing ingredients provide a rich, smooth sensation that is visible on the skin. This colorless and weightless product is perfect for any skin color or type. It can be used for simple touch ups over a bare face or can be the outer layer for a more formal look.
Kanebo is available at select Barney’s stores across the country and at www.barneys.com.
