Watch Models go make-up and photoshop free for our cover

Go behind the scenes on the cover shoot for this week’s issue of Stylist magazine – where, to present this year’s Stylist Skincare Awards winners to you, we vowed to do something else that no other British magazine has ever done – produce a cover shoot featuring a model wearing nothing but the skincare products you voted for as the absolute top of their game.

The models you see on the cover were photographed without a slick of make-up. Not even the tiniest dab of concealer, eyebrow pencil or mascara. Nothing. In fact, we banished make-up from the studio altogether. Not only that, the images have not been affected by the retouching wand in any way at all.

Why? Because that’s how much we believe in the power of these skincare greats. They contain more scientifically advanced technology than a Russian space station and thanks to rich, luxurious textures and deeply nourishing ingredients, they help skin to look as healthy as it feels.

Watch the behind the scenes video below, and let us know what you think of the cover by tweeting us @Stylistmagazine with #justbeautifulskin

Although they look calm and relaxed in the video, at first the models were nervous on the shoot - but as the day wore on, they soon came round to the idea:

“At first I only saw my dark eye circles in the shots,” said Claudia “but I got used it. Usually, I have so much make-up on that I can’t even see my own face behind it, so it made a really nice change.”

Fellow model Rihanna agreed, “This shoot will send out such a great message. Most people just cover us in make-up and airbrush us to death; it doesn’t present an accurate, or healthy, version of reality. I’m proud to be a part of a shoot like this in Stylist.
