Glow with Gucci Westman

Gucci Westman with Reese Witherspoon

Gucci Westman, the founder of Westman Atelier, creates an amazing clean-makeup line that literally glows upon application. She’s a renowned editorial makeup artist with devoted clients, such as Reese Witherspoon, Julianne Moore, and Gwyneth Paltrow, among many other strong women in the limelight, and for good reason—she’s an expert on maintaining luminous, healthy skin and is an avid hands-on researcher in the development of her beauty line. Westman Atelier has just launched Vital Skincare Complexion Drops, its first liquid foundation that gives breathable coverage and radiance while improving the quality of bare skin. It is loaded with skincare actives at efficacy levels and a nourishing formula that instantly hydrates, evens tone, and soothes the skin, using tsubaki oil, ginseng extract, and pomegranate extract.

Westman Atelier Vital Skincare Complexion Drops offered in 20 shades, $68, available at Welwythn (The Shops at Prairie Village).

Gucci also has a considered pre-makeup regime, and here are some of her favorite products that aid in prepping the face for clear and healthy skin. She encourages taking time to layer products, always applying with upward strokes, and she espouses nourishing ingredients that aid in calming rosacea and favors CBD moisturizers for a relaxed effect.

1. Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant, $48, from Bijin Salon & Spa  in the Shops at Prairie Village.

2. Repéchage Red Out Cleanser, $48, from MassageLuxe Spa in Park Place.
