"Wait a minute, what are you doing right now?" is a refrain commonly heard on the set of Makeup & Friends, where Gucci's "spot-checking" concealer technique is her secret weapon for perfecting hyper-pigmentation or redness without blanketing the skin in foundation. Developed through years on set with actresses like Cameron Diaz, Demi Moore, and Jennifer Aniston, it's a quick scan of the face from top to bottom, then a zeroing in on any areas that need help with Vital Skin and her foundation brush—most commonly around the nose, center of the chin, between the brows, and at both corners of the eyes. (For small red spots and blemishes, a tiny detail brush can do wonders, stay tuned for our tutorial on that coming next month!) Layered over a sheer all-over veil of foundation or used in problem areas only on bare skin, it's an everyday clean beauty game-changer. Bonus: Active plant-based soothing ingredients help calm redness related to irritation and dryness on a cellular level, so skin gets better over time.
