Entranced by Cameron Diaz’s glowing summer make-up in the new Vogue July 2010 issue, VOGUE.COM spoke to the make-up artist behind the look, Revlon global creative director Gucci Westman, to find out what it was like working with the Hollywood actress and get Westman’s expert advice on achieving “ageless” beauty.
How was it working with Cameron, have you worked together before?
I’ve been working with her for 15 years. From Being John Malkovich to the Oscars, Golden Globes and covers of Vogue, W, TV shows etcetera…lots. She’s a dear friend; we know each other very well.
Talk us through the creative process – did you go to the shoot with a clear vision in mind?
I didn’t know what we were doing until we got to the location, saw the clothes, chatted with Kate [Phelan], and then it all came together. You have to see the clothes really to know what to do.
