Rami Malek has a low-key grooming regime when he’s not attending star-studded events or awards ceremonies.
Marissa Machado, the celebrity groomer who makes sure Rami’s skin is always looking tip-top, has spilled the beans on how the Oscar winner looks after his skin when he’s not working.
“His off duty routine is very minimal. It’s as simple as applying a light wax to his damp hair and (using) a daily moisturiser and eye cream I’ve provided him with,” she told British GQ.
Rami recently enlisted Marissa’s help to prep him for the recent Oscars, where he bagged the Academy Award for Best Actor, for his role as Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody. And to ensure the 37-year-old was red carpet ready for the occasion, Marissa decided handsome with an added edge was the order of the day.
“When I saw Rami’s tux, I knew that we needed to keep him looking like the handsome leading man he is, but with a slight edge,” she smiled. “We gave him a traditional side part in his hair but with a flair of a cool edge. To touch up parts of his face to even out his skin tone, I used the EX1 Delete Fluide Concealer in shade 5.0. It’s great because it provides a full-coverage finish, is super for blending and is great for giving a more even tone. I then continued to perfect Rami’s complexion with the EX1 Inviswear Compact Powder in 4.0, a powder that features EX1’s signature yellow-gold pigments, which is perfect for Rami’s olive skin tone.”
She also used Kosas Tinted Face Oil and Kosas Sport Lip Fuel on the actor.
