Behind The Scene Beauty: Inside Tips From An All-Natural Makeup Artist

Katey Denno is the adorable makeup artist behind a bevy of Hollywood beauties who rely upon her to achieve non-toxic, cover-ready gorgeousness. With a diverse array of Hollywood clients, from Gweneth Paltrow to Amanda Seyfried, Katey knows how to deliver knock-out beauty with an all-natural glow. Below Katey shares the keys to creating this look with one of our favorite faces: the one and only, Christy Turlington. Here’s Katey…

This look comes from a recent, gorgeous C Magazine shoot. Christy was actually one of the first “celebrity” faces I ever worked on years ago. Early on in my makeup career, I assisted her long-time makeup artist, Pati Dubroff and when Pati found herself triple-booked for a red carpet event, I got the call to stop, drop and roll on over to Christy’s house – I was beyond thrilled. She is one of the most beautiful and iconic faces of our time and even after that first event together she was as gracious as you would imagine, delivering orchids to my home days later with a personal thanks.

Since that first red carpet emergency, I’ve had the pleasure of making Christy up on many occasions. Although that face is one in a million, anyone can try this look, with the help of the following all-natural beauty basics!

  • Get Christy's Cover-Worthy Look:

  • Eyes:
     I blended three shades by Kjaer Weis: Cloud Nine served as the base, and I buffed it into the lid from lash line, nearly to the brow bone, and into the inner corner. I blended Earthy Calm into the crease, and under the buttom lashes and Onyx - a slightly shimmering slate, along the lash line.
    A minimum of 5 coats of Nvey Eco mascara in black gives her amazingly full lashes.
  • Face:
    Christy's skin was prepped with May Lindstrom Skin The Youth Dew facial serum and then I massaged Roots Rose Radish Blue Chamomile Face Cream into the parts that needed a little more moisture.
    I perfected her skin with Vapour Organic foundation sticks and swirled Desired Glow -a deep tan cream blush - from Kjaer Weis onto her cheekbones, and blended it down.
  • Lips:
    A mixture of Bite Beauty Luminous Creme Lipsticks in Zivoli and Zin.
