Celebrity Makeup Artist Patrick Ta Shares His Pro Tips on Summer Skin Care (Hint: It’s All About La Mer)

When you think of the crème de la crème of skin care, La Mer is a logical go-to. Its healing Miracle Broth, crafted from sea kelp and packed with vitamins and minerals, is the stuff of legends, perfectly formulated to repair and rejuvenate sun-damaged skin. So it should come as no surprise that La Mer’s lead makeup artist and global ambassador, Patrick Ta (who happens to work the famous faces of Gigi Hadid, Jessica Alba and the whole Kardashian crew), has a serious sun-care regimen worth exploring.

We interviewed Patrick to get the rundown on his must-have La Mer products for summer and tips on how best to apply them. Turns out, we’ve been applying sunscreen and makeup in the wrong order for years. Consider us corrected.

We spent some time chatting (we really could have gone on all day) with Johnson about everything from rebooting your beauty regimen for the best possible outcomes to the science behind making the trademarked Miracle Broth, which goes into all La Mer products, so incredible and effective.
