Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett truly looks lit-from-within. Here's how she gets her skin looking radiant before a big event

We've seen Cate Blanchett in real life and we can attest... the woman practically glows. So beautiful and radiant is her creamy complexion that it simply emanates light. Decked out in a blush pink Givenchy gown at the 2016 Golden Globes, Blanchett's soft, complementary makeup tones brought out her gorgeous skin. A longtime user of SK-II skincare and an ambassador for over a decade, she shares her skincare steps before a big night.

Blanchett confesses, "As with any important event, I am slightly more indulgent with my skincare routine in the lead-up." She starts with the brand's Facial Treatment Essence and follows with the new Facial Treatment Oil for intense hydration — a must-have if you want makeup to glide on smoothly. Says Blanchett, "I adore the new SK-II Facial Treatment Oil. It's non-greasy and you get this incredible hydration and the subtle lavender fragrance is divine."

Her routine then continues with the LXP Ultimate Perfecting Eye Cream to reduce any dark circles and discolourations followed by an application of the luxurious LXP Ultimate Perfecting Cream to refine the skin's texture and plump it up. After this routine, her makeup artist is ready to go. But really who needs heavy face paint to cover things up when your skin looks this good.
