At Eminence Organics, we love connecting with makeup artists who are as passionate about natural, organic and Biodynamic® skin care as we are. These behind-the-scenes stars include sought-after makeup artists like Evelyne Noraz, Pati Dubroff and the incredibly talented Dotti.
Into The Gloss says of this renowned makeup artist: “If there’s a woman who can make you look like the best version of yourself while simultaneously making you look like you’ve never even heard of makeup, it’s Dotti.” It comes as no surprise that her online portfolio features such stunning stars as Alicia Keys, Emma Watson and Priyanka Chopra (to name a few).
We’re thrilled that this hugely accomplished makeup artist is a fan of Eminence Organic Skin Care - and were lucky enough to ask New York-based Dotti about her creative process, beauty tips and favorite Eminence Organics products.
Here’s what she had to say:
Can you describe yourself in one sentence?
One sentence! YSL smoking suit-wearing hippie.
How did you get started as a celebrity makeup artist?
I really cannot remember - it was just a natural journey in my career and reputation that attracted the women I worked and work with.
It begins the day before with prepping my bags and looking through references from the client. It’s the workout before the workout. I pack my own food - food is my “inside treatment” to my skin. I usually do a pilates class or a bike ride up to Harlem and back through the park. Then, work - and that is a very organic process. Who knows where the day will take me, as you need to be prepared for changes, and changes I make myself along the way. I always finish my day with a headstand and a thank you to myself.
What celebrity clients do you use Eminence Organics on, and what products work well for them?
I cannot share all my secrets - you shall have to wait for more to come!
What are your personal favorite Eminence Organics products?
- Lip Trio Kit
- Coconut Firming Body Lotion
- Firm Skin Acai Exfoliating Peel
- Calm Skin Chamomile Exfoliating Peel
- Bright Skin Masque
- Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Masque
- Strawberry Rhubarb Masque
- Eight Greens Whip Moisturizer
- Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum
- Facial Recovery Oil
- Rosehip Triple C+E Firming Oil
Well, the fact that it is organic and that it can be used every day by non-professionals who happen to be as passionate about what they are putting on their skin as I am. Also, professionals who treat skin with holistic awareness. Plus, I get to indulge my clients and be a skin nerd.
Can you give us your best beauty tip?
Begin your day with loving yourself from the inside out and your skin and energy will show to all. Take the time to give yourself a treatment two times a week - you will see a different texture and glow in a short turnaround.
Even if you're not prepping celebrity clients for the red carpet, we all love to experience the luxury of natural, organic and Biodynamic® skin care.
