Gucci Westman is the go-to makeup artist for celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Anne Hathaway and has been global artistic director of Lancôme and Revlon. She has a magic touch that enhances natural beauty in a way that always feels fresh and glowy—never heavy-handed. Recently, she’s translated her less-is-more philosophy into a line of her own, Westman Atelier. The mostly plant-based line, which is exclusively available at Barneys on preorder (the collection delivers in July), embraces the conscious-beauty movement of transparency with a focus on clean ingredients.
In episode eight of The Barneys Podcast, Westman sits down with Barneys’ Jason Ascher to chat about how she went from growing up on an ashram in Switzerland to becoming CEO of her own beauty brand. She recalls her first big photo shoots and the aha moments that fueled her career. She also breaks down her own beauty routine, which she has down to an impressive 10 minutes.
This is the last episode of season one of The Barneys Podcast! Stay tuned for season two, launching this fall!
