Gal Gadot’s Skincare Secrets

Currently expecting her third child, Gadot epitomises that lit-from-within glow. Gadot is charismatic, funny, naturally beautiful and exudes an effortless power.

Her Golden Globe’s beauty look was inspired by her natural glow.

“Gal (wore) a beautiful short white dress by Givenchy, with a cape. So as a team we decided to go for a bold, chic, Hollywood look with a fresh dewy, glowing skin,” make-up artist Sabrina Bedrani shared with us.

Using Kat Burki skincare products and make-up from Dior, Sabrina has detailed exactly how she created Gal’s flawless finish.

“I first prepped Gal’s skin with Kat Burki Super Nutrient Elixir, followed by PH+ Enzyme Essence and finally the Vitamin C Intensive Face Cream,” she explained.

“I then evened out her skin with Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation in 3W and Forever Skin Correct (Concealer) 3W where needed. For her eyes, I started with 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette in Poncho and Diorshow 24H Stylo in Matte black all along her lashes. I finished the eyes with Pump and Volume Mascara in Black. For the lips, I first lined and filled her lips with Lip Contour 884 Celeste and applied Rouge Dior in 884 in Celeste as well.”

The CurrentBody Skin LED Light Therapy Mask was also utilised ahead of the ceremony by Sabrina and Gal, as well as Kaley Cuoco and her make-up artist Jamie Greenberg, and make-up maestro Dana Hamel and her A-list client Renee Zellweger.

The mask is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in just four weeks. Red and near infra-red LED lights combine to provide the perfect dose of light therapy to the skin for both instant and long-term results. Use a hyaluronic acid serum or hydrogel sheet mask underneath for an added glow-giving boost.

On Instagram, Jamie enthused: “(It) makes your skin look brighter, better, smoother and turns your skin over so it looks fresher and younger. (With) one treatment you’re going to look glowier and if you keep using it you’re going to see your skin looking better and better.”

Pat McGrath Labs makeup line launches with new two-level Sephora store

Top makeup artist Pat McGrath’s luxe cosmetics line will soon become more easily accessible with the arrival of Sephora’s second New Zealand store.

Following the launch of the Queen Street, Auckland beauty emporium two years ago, Sephora has announced it will open its second store, a two-story boutique within Sylvia Park shopping mall in Auckland on Thursday March 18. 

Along with expanded ‘experiential spaces’ to test and try new products, the store will host a counter from brand Pat McGrath Labs, the first time the legendary British makeup artist’s full collection will be available in a New Zealand bricks and mortar store.

A favorite of makeup aficionados and known for its luxe, high-performance formulations and skin bases catering to a wide range of skin tones, the collection has been honed during McGrath’s work on the world’s top fashion collections and the celebrity faces she regularly works with.

McGrath has become hugely respected for her three decades of work, predominantly in the fashion industry, bringing her  theatrical, experimental and inclusive approach to makeup artistry worldwide for iconic fashion brands including Christian Dior, Givenchy, Versace, Prada and Louis Vuitton and plenty more. 

In 2019 she was included in Time’s 100 most influential people list and at the beginning of this year was the first make-up artist ever to be made a British Dame.

The highlights of her range include the silky, incredibly pigmented, often duo-chome metallic eye-shadows and high-impact, velvet-finish matte lipsticks. 

Other brands within the store that did not have a presence in the Queen St store include Giorgio Armani, Burberry Beauty, Goldfield & Banks and Bon Parfumer. Makeup favourites like Fenty Beauty, Huda Beauty, Tarte Cosmetics, Nudestix, and more will also be available.

A Sephora representative says the new store will offer skincare consultations at dedicated skincare bars on both floors, nestled amongst skincare brands like Ultra Violette, Fresh Beauty, Ole Henriksen. In addition, the new store also comes packed with makeup mirrors and ‘beauty studios’ to allow for easier product trials.
