Gucci Westman is one of the world’s top makeup artists. Westman was born in California, and raised in Sweden. After studying languages, upon graduation, Westman spent a year abroad in Switzerland. There she was hired as an au pair to a successful fashion journalist, who welcomed Gucci into her world of luxe beauty products and took her to the shows in Paris, where she ultimately enrolled in makeup school, igniting her career.
From iconic covers for Vogue, W Magazine, Harper’s Bazaar and Vanity Fair working with photographers such as Annie Leibovitz and Mario Testino, to creating looks backstage with Proenza Schouler, Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang, Westman’s signature look of dewy, radiant and healthy skin has been coveted by the industry’s top insiders for years. Westman has also acted as International Artistic Director of Lancome (2003) and Global Artistic Director at Revlon (2008).
Calling on her career as inspiration and passion for product development, Westman launched her own collection, Westman Atelier, in 2018, creating a new standard of luxury in clean and consciously-crafted beauty. Gucci Westman lives with her three children and husband, David Neville, in New York’s Upper West Side.
