Get The Look: Gucci Westman & KHAITE at NYFW

Get The Look: Gucci Westman & KHAITE at NYFW

We were backstage at Khaite for their Spring/Summer 2020 runway show. This season, the designers were all about putting a modern spin on the more glamorous, royal look. This show was all about creating a fresh, natural aesthetic and a dewy canvas for the models skin. 

Lucky for us, this glowy and natural look is always our favorite kind of look! Backstage, Tata created the perfect base for make-up artist Gucci Westman & her team, giving the models perfectly plumped and youthful skin. 

Best yet, this natural look is so easy to achieve. Follow these simple steps to get the runway look at home. 

Step 1: Prep & Hydrate 

First, apply Hydrating Floral Essence to the skin. Next, apply a thin layer of Hydrating Floral Mask as a moisturizer for a long lasting, fresh out of the shower effect. 

Really, the trick is all about blending it in and making it seem as if it’s your skin - Gucci Westman

As Vogue Magazine said, the above-the-neck accessories weren’t the only shining moment, though: Models’ complexions were coated in a layer of Tata Harper’s Hydrating Floral Mask, which was left on.

Step 2: Plump & Volumize

Next, apply the Elixir Vitae and Elixir Vitae Eye Serum from the NEW Supernaturals 2.0 Collection. Engineered with 72 high-performance ingredients, this hyper-potent formula was used to smooth, plump, volumize and prep models’ skin, giving a look of youthful glow.

Step 3: Illuminate

Apply Illuminating Moisturizer into skin to instantly hydrate and brighten with real diamond dust.

Step 4: Full-Body Sheen

Follow with Revitalizing Body Oil to hydrate the skin, toe-to-top. This creates a dewy canvas leaving skin with a rawness and all-over sheen. 

Step 5: The Gucci Westman Makeup Look

To create the ‘lit-from-within’ effect, apply Westman Atelier Lit Up Highlighter Stick on top of cheekbones and the inner corners of the eyes, with Vital Skin Foundation Stick where needed. 

Next, gently contour cheeks and nose with the Face Trace Contour Stick, to add a soft and slight definition to the face.

Depending on skin shade (Petal for lighter shades and Dou Dou for darker), apply Baby Cheeks Blush Stick to the bridge of the nose and under the cheek, for that natural ‘ran-up-the-stairs’ flush. 

Eyebrows are left as natural as possible, only filled in slightly with an angled brow brush, as for lashes - leave natural. 

To complete the look, add a few faux freckles with a brow pencil and apply Lit Up Highlighter Stick to the tops of lips, with Baby Cheeks in Dou Dou pressed all over using fingers. 

Step 6: Finish & Set

To finish, spray Hydrating Floral Essence to set makeup. This is fashion week’s most popular product to both prep skin, as well as spray on top of makeup to hydrate and set.
