The Empress of (Irresistible) Clean Makeup

The Beauty Closet

May 19 2021 • 1 hr 5 mins

On red carpets and photo shoots, makeup artist Gucci Westman’s thing—what she’s famous for—is glowy, natural-looking skin and a can’t-put-your-finger-on-it air of glamour. She delivers the same look with her runaway-bestselling makeup line, which raised the bar on both luxury and cool in the clean beauty space. The story of how she got there starts with a big break at Vogue, then runway shows for major fashion houses, like Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg, as well as movies, like Being John Malkovich and French Exit. After waking up to clean beauty and the fact that clean makeup lacked both chicness and efficacy, she created Westman Atelier. On this week’s episode of The Beauty Closet, Westman gives Jean and Megan some incredible makeup tips, along with unforgettable stories about growing up with hippie parents and landing smack-dab in the middle of the fashion world. (For more, see The Beauty Closet hub.)
