Makeup Artist Gucci Westman Shares Top Beauty Tips
In beauty circles, Gucci Westman is a household name. One of the world’s top makeup artists, Gucci is behind some of our favorite red carpet, magazine and runway beauty looks. She has made up celebrity clients like Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Aniston, crafted looks for fashion staples like Vanity Fair and Vogue and worked backstage for renowned designers like Vera Wang and Stella McCartney.
We’re thrilled that Eminence Organics is an essential in this celebrated makeup artist’s kit. Here are a few of Gucci Westman’s tried-and-true beauty tips for flawless skin.
Travel can do a number on your skin. To keep yours looking hydrated and healthy, packing a few skin care essentials is a must. Gucci tells Harper’s Bazaar and Tory Daily that her travel must haves include these Eminence Organics favorites:
This gentle cream cleanser is infused with rich coconut milk and coconut oil to hydrate your skin, leaving it with a soft and dewy finish. Created to comfort dryness, it is the perfect pick for your next beach vacation. Apply after sun exposure to give dry skin the soothing moisture it craves.
Eminence Organics Clear Skin Probiotic Masque
This award-winning face mask is an essential for airplane travel. Stale, recirculated air can wreak havoc on your skin, causing it to unexpectedly break out. Clear Skin Probiotic Masque contains cucumber, yogurt and tea tree oil to exfoliate, refine skin and improve the look of problem areas.
Eminence Organics Coconut Sugar Scrub
Put your best legs forward with an exfoliating and hydrating sugar scrub. Gucci swears by Coconut Sugar Scrub which is formulated with virgin coconut oil and raw sugar cane granules to buff skin to perfection.
No-Fuss Skin Care Routine
Gucci’s advice for a natural beauty look: “Keep it simple...Because who has the time to do 85 things these days?” She tells Shape Magazine that the first step to flawless makeup is a great canvas - and that starts with beautiful skin. She keeps her own complexion glowing with these Eminence Organics favorites:
Eminence Organics Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant
To buff and smooth her skin, Gucci tells Violet Grey that she reaches for Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant: “I do that on my face, chest, neck and hands because it’s so granular and it removes any pollution from living in New York City.” This powder exfoliant utilizes rice powder, salicylic acid from strawberries and lactic acid to absorb oil and remove dead skin cells. The result: A perfectly polished complexion.
Grazia Daily reveals another Gucci-approved skin care product: Citrus & Kale Potent C+E Serum. This fast-absorbing serum is infused with Vitamin C sourced from lemon and grapefruit, Vitamin E from avocado and a healthy helping of leafy greens to deliver optimal antioxidant benefits.
Eminence Organics Moisturizers
The one item Gucci can’t do without is a good moisturizer. She tells The Globe & Mail: “I love the Eminence line; I’m big into organic products.” At London Fashion Week, she was quick to recommend Eminence to the fashionistas at Grazia Daily. Their skin care pick: The “delightful” and “divine” Jasmine Tangerine Age-Defying Night Cream.
The Flash Facial
When it comes to runway beauty, Gucci Westman swears by the flash facial. This quick pick-me-up features a cocktail of skin care products for an immediate megawatt glow. ELLE and Marie Claire caught up with Gucci backstage at New York Fashion Week to see her - and a few Eminence favorites - in action.
Eminence Organics Neroli Age Corrective Hydrating Mist
Gucci tells Marie Claire that “organic skin products make the skin look really fresh.” To prep Rag & Bone models for the runway, Gucci starts with Coconut Milk Cleanser, followed by a spritz of Neroli Age Corrective Hydrating Mist. This rejuvenating facial mist includes a Natural Retinol Alternative, Swiss green apple stem cells, neroli oil and coconut water to tighten, plump and hydrate skin.
Eminence Organics Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream
The next step in Gucci’s flash facial is to “give the skin a dewy glow” with Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream. This luscious moisturizer features a blend of antioxidant-rich arctic plants and berries, as well as a Peptide Illuminating Complex of hibiscus seed botanical peptides to deliver a beautifully smooth and luminous complexion.
