The $11 Serum Behind Reese Witherspoon’s Glow


The Emmy Awards may have been a little different this year, but despite the event being held virtually, our favourite celebrities still pulled out all the glamour stops.

From Tracee Ellis Ross rocking a bright berry lip, to Zendaya’s next-level highlight and Jen Aniston’s bronzed goddess look, the ‘red carpet’ fulfilled all the Hollywood beauty inspo we’d been craving since March.

Reese Witherspoon, beautiful as always, enhanced her blue eyes with a terracotta smokey eye, paired with a classic red lip and side-swept hairstyle. And while her makeup was all Pat McGrath Labs products (expertly painted by makeup artist, Kelsey Deenihan), the skin care prep consisted of a more affordable line-up.

Arguably the most important step to achieving a radiant skin finish, Kelsey readied Reese’s complexion with a wise choice of five products from The Inkey List. The most notable being the Q10 Serum, which is only $11 at Sephora and as Kesley says, “full of antioxidants”.

She also used the brand’s hyaluronic acid, peptide moisturiser, caffeine eye cream and polyglutamic acid serum, the last of which played the part of a primer, “to lock in moisture”.

  1. Have seen The Inkey List in Sephora, but haven’t purchased anything from them. I think I might’ve tried something of theirs from a Sephora event last year, but can’t remember what I thought of it, if anything. (Actually, maybe on second thoughts, I didn’t like the product I got?)
