Jesse O'BrienEvery pristine makeup look starts with beautifully prepped skin. But imagine reapplying makeup and removing it, up to three times in one day, and then repeating that, every day for a week. Skin sensitivity may not be an issue at the beginning of fashion week but for many, it certainly will be by the end!

La Roche-Posay perfectly timed its launch of Rosaliac AR Intense, a new skin solution to calm and soothe irritated skin and redness, and previewed it at Mercedes Benz Australian Fashion Week yesterday for the Christopher Esber show.

Nadine Monley, skin care director for La Roche-Posay explains her method to a flawless makeup base:


Step One: La Roche-Posay Eye Makeup Remover

Models coming from other shows had on a face full of makeup. The first step was to remove the makeup from the eye gently, using La Roche-Posay’s renowned Eye Makeup Remover. I soaked some eye pads in this beautiful product and gently placed it on the eye. After a few seconds, I removed the eye pad and most of the makeup was gone from round the eyes.  The gentle formula is ideal for people who wear contact lens, have sensitive skin/eyes who are travelling – the individual ampules are ideal!


Step Two: La Roche-Posay Toleriane Dermo Cleanser

Anyone seeking a gentle cleanse needs to try this one. I started with the Dermo Cleanser and gently massaged it into the model’s skin. I left it to absorb for a few minutes. It’s so light and soothing that it  leaves the skin feeling fresh and revitalized. I believe that beautiful skin comes from-and deserves- the purest formulas. La Roche-Posay does all this and more! The beautiful and light consistency and soothing properties cleanse and nourish the skin, you can even leave it on.


Step Three: La Roche-Posay Thermal Water

My secret weapon. I sprayed a light mist of Thermal Springwater (or you can try our Creme Hydreane Legere Creme Hydratante which is just as fabulous) on the model’s face and décolletage to complete the cleansing regime. I sprayed it twice on the model’s skin and left it to absorb for a minute or so. I wanted the skin looking fresh by replenishing and putting moisture into the skin from Thermal water that has antioxidant and balancing properties from a high concentration of selenium. Skin loves selenium.


Step Four: La Roche-Posay Rosaliac Intense

Ok, this was my other secret weapon! The Rosaliac Intense formula features an efficient anti-redness action. It reduces redness, soothes and hydrates irritated skin and therefore perfect for model’s whose skin is overstimulated and aggravated from having make up applied and removed frequently. I gently applied small amounts of this moisturiser to finish off.
