Gucci Westman: Revlon Global Artistic Director

October 25th, 2011

Gucci Westman was named Revlon’s Global Artistic Director in 2008 and is one of the most revered makeup artist in Hollywood. Her list of celeb clients is extensive and her friendship with Hollywood A-listers like Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore is well documented.

I’m proud to call her my client and she has recently mentioned me in a few magazines including in the October InStyle, where she calls me her skin care expert.

I also decided to include a link to the Five Minute Face, a makeup video by Gucci for girls on the go. And you will also find many more links therein from the doyenne on makeup tips and tricks.

Top Style and Beauty Secrets By Gucci

What is the ultimate beauty advice? Exfoliate every day to make your skin soft, smooth, and squeaky clean. I use Eminence Organics body scrubs.

[And] Go easy on foundation. Wearing too much can age you.

What’s your favorite fall trend? Layering. Adding a fitted sweater or cropped blazer can make what’s already in your closet seem new.

Who’s your style icon? The stylist Camilla Nickerson – she can do no wrong.

Your fantasy purchase? An Andalusian horse. I used to ride, and once you’re a horsey girl, you’re always a horsey girl.

What’s your secret cheapie? Anything from J. Crew Crewcuts.

Pair of jeans? Rag & Bone, the trouser cut, in the Hickory wash, or the skinny cut [Westman’s husband, David Neville, is the line’s co-designer].

Expert? The facialist Joanna Vargas in New York.

Gucci’s makeup style is feminine and never overdone. And her models’ skin always look dewy and fresh. The ways she creates her signature look is described in this interview in Elle Magazine. Please check it out.

Applying makeup is always easiest on perfect skin. You never need too much and you’ll only need it to accentuate and never to hide.

And as always I look forward to seeing you at the salon where we can help you achieve the skin you always wanted.
