Vogue: The Power Facialist Behind The Luminous Skin At Victoria Beckham’s AW20 Show

"Proving that prep and excellent products have more to do with a luminous glow than make-up itself does"

If there is one beauty look that Victoria Beckham fully subscribes to for her fashion shows, it’s beautiful, fresh skin and barely-there make-up. It was no different for her autumn/winter 2020 show on Sunday, where the models’ skin was, as the designer put it “healthy and hydrated with a really beautiful, natural glow. Nothing overly complicated, just beautiful skin.”

[She] gave all of the [models] a facial before they had their make-up done, using the VB serum and Rejuvenating Priming Moisturizer on top.”

The serum is designed to optimise the skin’s barrier function, using those tried and trusted actives hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and vitamin E, as well as Bader’s unique Trigger Factor Complex, said to support the skin cell renewal process. “I used the new Power Serum to calm, hydrate and boost radiance, followed by the Priming Moisturizer,” says Grant. “It’s perfect pre-make-up.” Judging by the complexions of the models at Beckham’s show on Sunday, whose skin was luminous, it works.
