It’s not just Kim Kardashian’s Marilyn Monroe dress at the Met Gala that created a buzz this week – her face did too.

We often hear how a flawless red carpet beauty look is down to good old hydration but now we have the details on why Kim’s skin looked so lush – she used luxury skincare range Augustinus Bader before applying her makeup.

We even know exactly what was applied to her skin (and how) as her longtime makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic revealed on Instagram the four Augustinus Bader products he used in her skincare prep to perfect Kim’s Met Gala glow.

First, he cleansed her face using Augustinus Bader’s The Cream Cleansing Gel. Next, using a cotton pad, he applied The Essence all over.

“Once that was absorbed, I applied The Cream all over [her] skin,” he wrote.

Since launching in 2018, Augustinus Bader has gained something of a cult status – at least among celebs – with famous fans on both sides of the pond.

Founded by biomedical scientist, Professor Augustinus Bader, the brand is informed by his work in regenerative stem cell medicine, including treating burns victims, leadin him to develop a range of active creams and serums.

Bader found that rapid regeneration of skin cells along with exfoliation improves the appearance and softness of ageing skin, and helps peel away dark spots and blemishes. Over time, it also improves acne and reduces wrinkles.

Friends co-stars Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston, Britpack’s Alexa Chung and Emma Corrin, pop royalty (Lizzo) and even actual royalty (Meghan Markle) have all used them – not to mention Hollywood types like Charlize Theron, Salma Hakek and Leonardo Dicaprio (yes, men can look after their skin, too).

The brand has more than 70 industry awards and accolades and was voted top of WWD’s Greatest Skincare Of All Time list. Victoria Beckham loves it so much she launched her own skincare line in partnership with Augustine Bader.

And even with a higher price tag, beauty editors agree the contents of these iconic blue bottles live up to the hype.

Being A Good Mum Doesn’t Mean Being A Martyr

It's time to dismantle the narrative that motherhood is all about self-sacrifice. Every year on Mother’s Day, I see people post old family photos on social media with captions praising mums for all the ways they prioritised their kids’ needs at the expense of their own. “You dropped whatever you were doing to help us.” “You never bought anything for yourself so we could have whatever we wanted.” “You made it to every […]
