Odacité Kind of Girl: Katey Denno, Celebrity Makeup Artist, Green Living and Beauty Expert

As a prominent NYC celebrity makeup artist and green living and beauty expert, Katey Denno is well-known for being on forefront of the clean beauty movement for nearly a decade. She works with A-listers such as Felicity Jones, Cara Delevingne, Cobie Smulders and more - and yes she can make a green beauty look last through an entire movie premier ;-).

What we admire most about Katey aside from her impeccable expertise and talent, is her big heart. Before she became a makeup artist, she spent almost ten years as a social worker. She was a big advocate of teaching clients the importance of knowing what they put on and into their body and even now, she finds time to consult those who want to "green over" their lifestyle. This naturally translated into her current career, where she only uses clean products to get her clients red-carpet ready. Katey is constantly testing new products and reporting her 100% honest findings on her blog The Beauty Of It Is.

We hope you enjoy getting to know this beautiful warm hearted woman, what she keeps in her fridge at all times, and which Odacité products she swears by....

I do best with gentle exercise, so a walk around my hilly neighborhood or a gentle yoga class is my favorite.

My TCM practitioner put me on herbs to warm me up. He’s always told me that I’m too cold (which I know is true), and wow, is it ever working!

The last book I read and podcast I listened to was…

I listen to ‘How I Built This'.

Last book: Sue Monk Kidd’s ‘The Invention of Wings’.

Ever evolving and very vague.
