THE SK-II SKIN DESTINY STUDY, SKIN CARE DECODED
Loyal users of Facial Treatment Essence put their skin to the ultimate test
Backstage at the Rag & Bone Fall/Winter 2016 RTW Collection in New York, Makeup Artist Gucci Westman prepped models’ skin with luxury skincare brand SK-II prior to makeup application.
“The inspiration for the beauty look was the individual, strong personalities of these real, cool girls,” said Gucci Westman. “We wanted to enhance their own beauty without cloning them, so it was very important to achieve their best skin possible, and a perfect complexion, using my favorite SK-II skincare products.”
To ensure each model had a luminous skin tone and glowing complexion, Gucci applied the iconic SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, followed by the NEW R.N.A. Power Essence and R.N.A. Power Cream.
SK-II FACIAL TREATMENT ESSENCETo prep the models’ skin prior to makeup application, SK-II Facial Treatment Essence was patted and gently massaged into the skin. The Essence is the brand’s signature product and coveted by women around the world. With over 90% Pitera, the pure and lightweight miracle water gently exfoliates while instantly refreshing and moisturizing skin for an overall glowing complexion.
NEW SK-II R.N.A. (RADICAL NEW AGE) POWER ESSENCENext, the new SK-II R.N.A. Power Essence was applied to help minimize pores and plump the skin. The firming Serum provides supple, beautiful skin, even after several days of back-to-back shows.

Once each model had hydrated, healthy skin, Gucci applied natural-looking makeup to accentuate their individual features and personality.
“SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is my must-have, go-to skincare product backstage because it instantly refreshes and hydrates the skin, and helps to create the best possible canvas for makeup application,” stated Gucci.
