She’s a successful human rights lawyer, an avid humanitarian and happens to be the wife of one of Hollywood’s leading men, George Clooney. She’s also the mother of twins Alexander and Ella and has recently been spotted hanging out with ex-US presidential couple, Michelle and Barack Obama. Oh, to be the brilliant and beautiful Amal Clooney!
Because while it’s astonishing how much this 41-year-old barrister has achieved in her life, we’re also sat wondering how it is she manages to maintain that flawless complexion and natural grace while she’s out conquering the world. According to Amal’s trusted make-up artist Charlotte Tillbury (who works with other celebrities like Penelope Cruz and Natalie Portman), this is what the talented A-lister does to add that extra glow to her skin…
This is probably the most important step in the process to achieving glowing skin. For Amal, it’s all about ultra-hydration and being able to soothe and plump the skin in one go. She uses her make-up artist’s personal range of products, but we recommend moisturiser to smooth and and plump, Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Silky Cream SPF 15, R640 for 50ml.
The proper primer
If you’re planning on wearing foundation, you absolutely cannot skip this step. Primer acts almost like a filler, smoothing over small creases and pores so that when you apply foundation, the make-up goes on evenly. Amal uses Charlotte Tillbury’s Wonderglow primer to give her skin and instant look and create a fresh, dewy effect. For a similar result, try a primer for a fresh and dewy finish, like Bobbi Brown Enriched Vitamin Face Base, R895 for 50ml.
Set the foundation
This is what gives your skin that final flawless look. Amal prefers to use a lightweight sheer foundation that offers good coverage while also hydrating and illuminating her skin. It’s also SPF 15, something we strongly recommend. If you can’t get your hands on Charlotte Tillbury’s range, try Lancôme Skin Feels Good Healthy Glow Hydrating Skin Tint SPF 23, R495 for 32ml.
We’ll keep you updated with all the celeb-related beauty advice and until then, trust that we’re in awe of Amal Clooney every time she steps out – on the red carpet or not.
