To highlight the launch, La Prairie has selected three leading makeup artists from three world regions – North America, Europe and Asia – to act as La Prairie Complexion Artist Ambassadors. They will work closely with La Prairie to develop application techniques exclusive to Skin Caviar Essence-in-Foundation and give masterclasses on Complexion Artistry.
While a perfect complexion is the incarnation of timeless beauty, the portrait of beauty is only as perfect as its canvas — there can be no perfect complexion without perfect skin. The newly selected La Prairie Complexion Artists will communicate on the importance of skincare and develop bespoke makeup application rituals that begin with perfect skin and end with the perfect complexion.
“We are very excited about this unique collaboration that we feel conveys our belief that complexion perfection is an art,” said Greg Prodromides, chief marketing officer of La Prairie Group. “In fusing caviar science with colour artistry, La Prairie continues to break the codes of luxury skincare. And with their varied expertise and regional specialties, these talented Complexion Artists are the ideal spokespeople to communicate the idea that perfect skin leads to a perfect complexion,” he added.
