Reese Witherspoon 2022 SAG Awards

Last night, the stars stepped out for the 2022 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards to celebrate the best and brightest talent in film and prime time television. Of course, equally as exciting as the awards themselves were the stunning red carpet moments, which not only create fodder for post-event chatter but also spark plenty of spring beauty inspiration for the season ahead. As per usual, a common thread among celebrity beauty looks was flawless, radiant skin.

While long-revered skin care brands were present behind the scenes, there were a fair amount of newcomers as well, like science-backed Noble Panacea, which was used by makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic on Salma Hayek. Though the research behind the brand began nearly 15 years ago, Noble Panacea officially launched in 2019 with a range of luxury skin care that aims to empower women to embrace their authentic selves. Dedivanovic used a selection of products on Hayek that helped create a firm, sculpted base for her sultry glam look.

Facial tools were also an important player in celebrity skin prep at the 2022 SAG Awards, including SolaWave’s cult-favorite red light therapy wand and buzzy new launches from FaceGym.

Ahead, get the low down on the skin care behind a slew of celebrity beauty looks at this year’s SAG Awards, and you’ll be on your way to achieving your very own red carpet glow.

As per usual, Reese Witherspoon looked like Hollywood royalty when she hit the SAG Awards red carpet. In a press release, her makeup artist Kelsey Deenihan shared the secret to the glow-giving skin care routine she gave the star before applying a full face of bareMinerals makeup.

“Prepping the skin is essential for a glowing complexion,” Deenihan says. “First, I applied the Biossance Squalane + Omega Repair Cream to Reese’s entire face. Under the eyes, I lightly pressed the Biossance Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream. Then, to amplify the benefits of the skin care, I used the SolaWave Advanced Skin Care Wand with Red Light Therapy. The microcurrents and warmth from the wand deepen the absorption of the moisturizer. The vibrating facial massage increases circulation, reduces puffiness, and along with the red light therapy, boosts the skin’s natural radiance. These four technologies help create the perfect glowing canvas.”

Yellowstone star Kelsey Asbille looked absolutely radiant at last night’s events, thanks in part to celebrity makeup artist Carolina Gonzalez. “For tonight's SAG Awards, skin prep was key,” Gonzalez said in a press release. “Before doing Kelsey Asbille’s makeup, I used the CurrentBody Cryo Roller to get her circulation going, wake up her skin, and depuff.”

The stainless steel hand-held device is a new offering from CurrentBody. It works to reduce puffiness and water retention by delivering sub-zero temperatures to the skin, shocking skin cells into sending blood and nutrients to the area. The brand recommends first applying your favorite serum or moisturizer, then using the device by starting at the middle of your face and rolling outwards.

Salma Hayek’s sultry makeup look was courtesy of the soft glam master himself, Mario Dedivanovic. To give the actor the perfect base, the makeup artist used science-based skin care brand Noble Panacea’s Absolute Collection. “The Absolute Collection helps to create a firm, yet supple canvas on the skin that makes makeup application feel effortless,” he said in a press release.

To prep underneath Hayek’s eyes, Dedivanovic used The Absolute Restoring Eye Cream. Then, he applied The Absolute Intense Renewal Serum all over her face using a fan brush, “so that I get as much coverage as possible.” The final step was The Absolute Replenishing Moisturizer, which Dedivanovic says provides the perfect canvas for makeup application due to its ability “to lift and firm skin, contouring the face while hydrating to leave skin smooth, supple, and plump.”

Not only did makeup artist Kristofer Buckle create Jessica Chastain’s red carpet smoky eye using all Charlotte Tilbury makeup, but he also prepped her skin using the brand as well — including an exciting new product. First, Buckle applied the just-launched Collagen Superfusion Oil, which contains collagen and plant extracts for plump, glowing skin. He also used two Charlotte Tilbury skin staples; the Magic Serum Crystal Elixir and the Magic Cream.

Facial tools have become a staple among celebrity skin care routines, so it’s no surprise that some of the trendiest gadgets from FaceGym were used on megastars Naomi Watts, Sandra Oh, and Dame Helen Mirren in preparation for the SAG Awards.

On Watts, makeup artist Mary Wiles used celebrity-loved FaceGym Pro Pure Lift Face EMS device. “The electrical muscle stimulation activates the facial muscles and instantly firms and tightens the skin's surface - I'm always impressed by the lift it gives,” Wiles said in a press release. Wiles also used the Medi Lift Eye (which is only available for use in FaceGym Cryo Medi Lift studio workouts), the Multi Sculpt High-Performance Contouring Tool, and the new Weighted Ball Deep Tension Release Tool.

Makeup artist Jo Strettell used these same tools on Dame Helen Mirren. “It’s all about creating a flawless canvas for makeup and skin care to sit on,” she said in a press release. “FaceGym’s high-performance tools helped me to achieve that with minimal effort.”

On SAG nominee Sandra Oh, makeup artist Mai Quynh used FaceGym’s collection of skin care tools along with the award-winning Hydro-Bound Hyaluronic Acid + Niacinamide serum as well as the brand’s two new products, the Liftwear Vitamin C gel-cream moisturizer, and Active Blast Vegan Collagen Skin Booster.
