Leave it to Sam Smith to just roll out a skin-care trend we didn’t know we needed. Coined the “I don’t care” vibe, Smith’s groomer and hair stylist, Sienree Du, just shared all the very luxe skin-care details behind the singer’s look for tonight’s Grammys.
“We wanted to go for an ‘I don’t care’ punk rock vibe for hair for Sam’s performance,” Du said in regards to the inspiration behind the glam. “Sam was dressed in custom Valentino and we wanted to keep the hair disheveled to create contrast since all the pieces were so perfect. For skin, we kept it simple and focused on plumping and hydrating the skin for makeup prep!”
Relying on the luxe Element Eight line, Du prepped Smith’s skin with the brands’ O2 Peptide Firm Perfect Cream ($250), which describes itself as a “multiconcern daily” moisturizer.
“It’s one of my favorite skin prep products because it helps calm redness, helps smooth any fine lines, and just gives the skin an overall firmness which is great before any makeup application,” Du says.
“Once the O2 Peptide has soaked in, I followed up with the O2 Hyaluronic Acid Hydrate Correct Cream ($250), which helps intensely hydrate the skin. It also has Vitamin B5 which is a great anti-inflammatory and helps create flawless skin and correct any redness.”
