How Gucci Westman achieved everyone’s beauty dreams

In today’s episode of MECCA Talks, Kate chats to renowned celebrity makeup artist and founder of Westman Atelier, Gucci Westman. 


Prior to creating Westman Atelier, the pioneering brand behind luxurious, skin-forward makeup that improves your complexion as it enhances, Gucci had Hollywood in awe of her ability to create fast and flawless ‘no-makeup’ makeup looks. This led to fruitful collaborations with the likes of Spike Jonze, Bruce Weber, Grace Coddington and Steven Meisel, and ongoing relationships with Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Martha Stewart and more famous faces.


From her ashram upbringing – to getting Madonna on her side – and, more recently, formulating the skin-improving complexion drops we can’t get enough of, this episode is a lesson in beauty history not to be missed. Hit play!
