“After 40 hours on the plane this week it feels oh so nice to be back in NYC for a day with my twin flames @samvissermakeup @jennifer_yepez bringing Belinda alive this morn. Boom,” she captioned an Instagram snap.
You might note that Bella looks dewy, fresh and not at all like she’d caught a red-eye flight. What gives? Introducing, the ice cube: Bella’s hack for taking a tired, puffy complexion from meh to amazing.
"Bella had just come from a long week of being on flights, so we wanted to give her an instant refresh before another shoot," her makeup artist Sam Visser told Vogue. "Prepping the face with an ice facial instantly wakes up and brightens the skin, while the cooling effect reduces inflammation and swelling."
Basically, he rubbed the ice cube along Bella’s jawline, moving under her eyes and upward towards the high part of her cheekbones. The idea is that the chill from the ice helps to boost circulation, as well as de-puff any inflammation under the skin.
"An ice facial is important in the prep stages of makeup because it allows me to use less coverage on the skin, which is already awake and glowing," Visser added. Simples!
