High-End Makeup to Splurge On

Makeup artist Gucci Westman brings her experience working with industry heavyweights like Lancôme and Hollywood A-listers (including Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, and Cameron Diaz) to her clean cosmetics collection, Westman Atelier. “This is a brand that’s doing luxury well, but in a very attainable way,” says celebrity makeup artist, Jenny Patinkin. She loves how Westman Atelier’s simple, structural packaging hits on today’s minimalist trends, while the formulations are made with responsibly sourced ingredients that are both clean and easy to use. A lifelong vegetarian herself, Westman believes that “clean” and “luxury” don’t have to be a contradiction. In fact, while the line is free of potentially irritating ingredients, it is also professional-grade, meaning that products are created to be high-quality, efficient, long-lasting, and beneficial to the skin (including sensitive and reactive skin types). If you’re looking for new staples to add to your makeup bag, try the ever-popular Baby Cheeks Blush Stick or the Beauty Butter Powder Bronzer, both of which are guaranteed to give you a beautiful flush of color while also boosting hydration and promoting healthier-looking skin.
