At last night’s 95th Annual Academy Awards, Salma Hayek gave a masterclass in glamor on the red carpet — even if the carpet was champagne. Hayek’s shimmering Gucci gown was a hit before the ceremony even began, punctuated with free-flowing waves and a dewy, ethereal glow. One of star’s newest products for radiant skin? The internet viral makeup by Mario SurrealSkin Foundation.
Hayek’s effortless makeup look for the 2023 Oscars was created by Mario Dedivanovic, the famed makeup artist and Make-up by Mario founder himself. For a glowing, hydrated base, Dedivanovic first prepped her face with La Mer’s Moisturizing Soft Cream and Hydrating Infused Emulsion alongside other skincare products. Next, he applied vibrant SurrealSkin Foundation in shade 17N over his brand’s SoftSculpt Transforming Skin Enhancer in Medium to even out the star’s complexion. And to emphasize Hayek’s flawless facial makeup, the artist added SoftSculpt Bronzer in Medium to her cheek contours, along with Soft Pop Powder Blush in Creamy Peach and Soft Pop Blush Stick in Soft Coral for a subtle pop of color.
In the few months since its launch, the popular foundation has become a must-have among beauty lovers thanks to its wide range of colors and lightweight, flexible formula that looks almost skin-like. It’s also ultra moisturizing and long-lasting thanks to its formulation of vegan squalene and grapeseed oil, which lasts up to 12 hours.
“Some super-hydrating products just glide onto the face, but this one sticks to the skin,” Dedivanovic previously said BAZAAR.com. “The foundation is the perfect base to apply sculpting and highlighting products without looking greasy.”
Even if you’re not on the red carpet, the versatile foundation is easy to blend with moisturizer for a barely-there skin tone, or layer under concealer and other makeup staples for all-over glam – you might forget that you are even wearing makeup after applying it. Accordingly BAZAAR Associate Beauty Editor Katie Intner says what makes SurrealSkin so universally appealing is “how easily it blends into skin and is perfectly buildable.”
