Recently, while backstage at Suno during New York Fashion Week, makeup artist Alice Lane was employing not one, but two face sprays—La Roche-Posay’s Eau Thermale and Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir—while working on models Xiao Wen Ju and Cora Emmanuel. “Is that in case you run out of one?” I asked. But no, Lane explained, the two mists do very different things.
Lane uses La Roche-Posay Eau Thermale (the ingredients list of which is simply mineral-rich spring water) instead of a traditional face cream, especially on balmier fall days. “If I put on my regular moisturizer and then a base of foundation on top of that, it’s just so greasy,” she explained. “I use this spray instead and let it soak into the skin.”
Next, she applies her makeup, layering on foundation, blush, and even powder on top, before setting it with a spritz of Caudalie Beauty Elixir. “It has a bit of oil in it, so it makes any powdery residue disappear and leaves you glowing,” she says of the rose-, grape-, peppermint-, and rosemary-infused mist. On Lane’s advice, I’ll be stocking up and spraying generously.
