“You can cut all the flowers, but you cannot keep spring from coming.”–Pablo Neruda
Much like Takashi Murakami’s paintings, Spring brings in color and joy. A season of light and growth, both figuratively and literally. For Spring, model Stella Duval brings life to artpop with colors, dimension, and the sparkle of crystals. We caught up with Stella as makeup artist Shaina Ehrlich preps her skin for this beauty editorial. “I started Stella’s skin prep by cleaning her skin with Bioderma Sensibio H20, I then used the Koh Gen Do Oriental Plants Hakkoh Lotion 60 and sprayed the Koh Gen Do Spa Water Herbal Mist,” Shaina explained. “Stella’s skin was already very hydrated and radiant so I preferred to use a water lotion for an easy base application.” We ask Stella about her skin care and how she maintains a glowing complexion. “I actually have super acne prone skin and have been having breakouts so I’m on a strict routine right now.” Stella tells us her current daytime regimen consists of La Roche Posay Hydrating Face Cleanser, SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic, La Roche Posay Double Repair Face Moisturizer, and EltaMD SPF 45. For evening she uses a Tretinoin which is a Vitamin A used for acne and scarring repair (it is also known to regenerate the skin’s collagen for a youthful appearance). “I also do a laser Genesis treatment once a month. It’s hard work and takes time to find the treatment that works individually for you.” Discover Spring beauty trends photographed by Kate Powers.
