This month, our monthly columnist, LA-based celebrity makeup artist Kerry Malouf talks about springing forward at a photo shoot with one of her favorite shutterbugs.

Malouf said, “One of my favorite photographers that I love working with is Marc Babtiste. Not only is he a photographer, but also a director, so he knows what he wants. I love his style and he has a great eye.”

For the shoot Malouf worked with Babtiste on,”the makeup direction for this shoot was to keep it light, fresh and clean,” Malouf said, since it’s spring. “Perfect, flawless skin, with just a hint of color on her cheeks and light smoldering eyes and a soft, pale rose color on her lips, giving her a slightly flirty effect.”

Malouf selected a makeup line called W3LL PEOPLE, which is pronounced “well people.” She stumbled upon this line by complete accident and it was “love, immediately,” she said. “This line is on my the top of my list and a line you must be open to trying!” Why? Simple, because it’s very earth-friendly! April 20 is Earth Day, so we’re paying tribute to a line that supports that philosophy and perspective.

“It’s an evolutionary concept in organic makeup developed by a cosmetic dermatologist, makeup guru and tree hugger,” Malouf revealed. “This dynamic trio is on a mission to create the ultimate in toxin-free, eco-beauty. Their preservative-free, color-rich cosmetic line combines the power of the W3LL PEOPLE. It’s advanced performance, luxurious bio-available ingredients and sustainability.”

Malouf loves the entire line, but there’s three new products that really stand out for her: Narcissist Foundation + Concealer Stick, Universalist Multi-Use Color Stick and Nudist Lip Shine. Malouf will show us how you can achieve the look with the Spring Prescription below!

The W3LL PEOPLE Spring Prescription for this cover makeup look and story is as follows:

“Clean up your skin by using the Narcissist Foundation and Concealer stick. Then add a hint of color on your check by blending Universalist Color Stick in 1, a soft, pale-cool rose cheek color. On your lips, layer a poppy lip with a sheer, yet pronounced, dose of Cherry Red and Nudist Lip Shine.”

Brush up on the line by visiting them at the following online destinations:


“Jurlique Fruit Enzyme Exfoliator is amazing!!!! It gives your skin an instant glow. It’s a highly effective fruit-based facial treatment that exfoliates skin with natural enzymes and indigenous Australian extracts of Desert Lime, Quandong and Wattle, creating a visibly smoother and revitalized complexion.”
