Get Reese Witherspoon's Red Carpet Glow

Whether she’s on the red carpet or just running errands, Reese Witherspoon’s hydrated, radiant makeup always looks flawless. Our Global Brand Ambassador’s secret: her easy, three-step makeup prep routine featuring three of our award-winning bestsellers. 

Reese’s hydrating, nourishing skin prep routine is the key to creating a smooth, hydrated canvas for dewy, lit-from-within makeup whether you’re walking the red carpet, or just running errands. 


Step 1: Squalane + Marine Algae Eye Cream

After cleansing with our Squalane + Amino Aloe Gentle Cleanser and using our Squalane + Vitamin C Dark Spot Serum, Reese starts prepping her skin for makeup with our multi-award-winning eye cream to instantly lift and deeply hydrate. 

“I never skimp on eye cream! This one lifts, firms and helps address fine lines,” says Reese. “I just pat it all around the eye in a c-shape,” 

This bestseller visibly smooths fine lines crepiness, creating the perfect canvas for makeup and ensuring that delicate undereye skin stays hydrated and nourished all day long.

Step 2: Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Moisturizer

Our instant bestseller uses the innovative combination of dermatologist-approved vitamin c and fermented lemon peel instantly delivers a powerful boost of brightness while visibly improving skin elasticity and firmness. Our sugarcane-derived squalane mimics the body’s natural moisture while driving proven-effective ingredients deeper, making them work harder.

Reese likes to apply our Vitamin C Rose Moisturizer with a brush for a tactile self-care moment that helps drive the product in deeper for radiant, hydrated skin.

“I love it all: the texture, the beautiful pink hue, the way it makes my skin feel smooth, supple and hydrated but NEVER greasy,” says Reese.

Our instant bestseller features a luxe, velvet-cream texture that creates beautiful radiance when applied underneath foundation. You can also mix a pea-sized amount into your favorite makeup base for lighter coverage with a silky finish.

Step 3: Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil

As the final step before makeup, Reese creates her famous glow by going in with our Squalane + Vitamin C Rose Oil.

“I like to warm up a few drops between my palms, then pat it into my skin,” says Reese. “Now my skin is beautifully hydrated and ready for the makeup that I wear every day.”

Our non-greasy facial oil instantly brightens using our uniquely oil-soluble vitamin c while locking in moisture to keep skin supple and hydrated all day long. Use it underneath your makeup like Reese, mix a few drops into your foundation for a dewy finish, or tap a drop into each cheekbone for a natural-looking highlight.

As a lifestyle writer and journalist, I’m excited to bring my passion for storytelling to Biossance as an Engagement Content Writer. Two things you should know about me: I have a deep love of the ocean (especially sharks) and I’m obsessed with clean beauty. My bathroom cabinet is literally overflowing with my many-layered sustainable skincare routine. This combo is what led me to buy my first bottle of Vitamin C Rose Oil. I was so impressed by the way it improved my skin that I wanted to shout this brand from the rooftops. Three years later, and here I am doing just that. I’m excited to be on this journey of clean beauty innovation with Biossance, and to share it with you here on the blog.
