Prestidge Beauté Active Organics small-batch skincare. Where Alchemy + Reiki intersects





“PRESTIDGE beauté Active Organics are lovingly made in my Brooklyn lab employing Reiki & other healing modalities. They are carefully crafted by hand with the finest ingredients, inspired by the desire to create a line of organic skin care products that yield the kind of stunning results that I have eagerly sought but have yet to encounter anywhere in my decades as a beauty expert.”



PbAO is the realization of Jane Fonda’s longtime makeup artist, Shawnelle Prestidge. An accomplished celebrity makeup artist, former beauty editor and esthetician. having worked for decades with global brands and beauty giants, became captivated by the idea of creating a clean, concise curated line, offering maximal benefits with a minimal footprint-ageless and genderless. An organic skincare line tailored for everyone under one roof, sun and sky.

At age 40, as the economy was tanking, Shawnelle naturally shelved that IdeA to welcome her beautiful, healthy daughter into an uncertain worlD. over a spell, she endured multiple uprooting moves, and WEATHERED her husband’s near fatal/life-altering accident-when she found herself with him in the kitchen, making a Cannabis salve, to help quell his nerve pain. this was the tipping point that gave way to her first product.  Shawnelle, now inching ever closer to 50, decided it was finally time to try her hand at creating a "miracle" serum and ultimately-the curated line of LUXURIOuS, omnI-beneficial, Energy-activated, skincare. This lineup of extraordinary Cruelty-free products quickly came to bEAR the name PRESTIDGE beauté Active Organics.

Ageless Skin Serum is bottled exclusively in Miron (Violet) Glass,

Ageless Skin Serum is bottled exclusively in Miron (Violet) Glass,



The beautiful opaque blue colored bottles by Miron-are referred to as ‘violet’ glass. It was first developed as containers for a line of energetic medicines in Cypress. The glass was chosen because violet light shows the highest vibration frequency (720 – 770 billion Hertz) of all colors, corresponding exactly to the vibration frequency of our central nervous system.

Miron glass has outstanding proof of being able to preserve substances contained within for long periods of time. Normal tap water, for instance, has been kept fresh in a violet glass jar for over 3 years without the need for any additives to preserve it. Highly perishable substances such as a tomatoes have been tested to remain fresh after 7 months in a Miron Glass Jar, as well as chives maintaining freshness after 2 months. I know-mind-blowing!

Sunlight (the full spectrum of visible light rays) enables all plants to grow. If they continue to be exposed to the sun after reaching maturity, the effect of the light changes and accelerates the molecular decaying process.

Miron glass was developed by the Swiss scientist Yves Kraushaar following 14 years of research. The secret of this special glass is based on the fact that the molecular structure of any substance is permanently activated and energized by “violet life radiation.” This also explains the violet glass’s high natural preservation capacity.




During the impressionable years, makeup artist Shawnelle Prestidge abandoned her affair with sketch pad and pencils for "mom's 'electric blue'  jumbo eye crayon" and the planes of the face, which sparked her obsession that continues to burn. 

Celebrated for her eyebrow arching prowess, and trend forecasting for product development at Benefit Cosmetics, Shawnelle furthered her skill set in training, and conducting makeup seminars for beauty behemoth MAC Cosmetics.

Shawnelle is widely recognized both behind the scenes and backstage, for her keen and creative eye, steady and spry hand, as well as her charming and disarming demeanor, all of which garnered her the position of Blackbook magazine's Beauty Editor, early on in her career.

She has appeared as the "Makeup Expert" on TLC's celebrated makeover show "Cover Shot",  as well as for Sephora, HSN, QVC & Mary Kay in videos, commercials & live broadcasts, etc...  Shawnelle created a 'HOW-TO' series called The REAL Makeup Show-for Youtube, as an answer to the great many lacking in  'how-to' instruction.

She has painted the faces the likes of: 
International icons Jane Fonda, Sharon Stone, Katie Holmes and Pamela Anderson to R and B's wunderkind John Legend and Alice Smith, Hip Hop's hipster Kelis to 80's pioneer Siouxsie Sioux of Siouxsie and the Banchees, Academy Award nominee Samantha Morton to Tony award winning Anika Noni Rose, starlets Kerry Washington, Molly Simms, Elizabeth Banks, Zoë Saldana and Solange Knowles to rock-n-roll royalties Jane's Addiction, undergound god's Sonic Youth to songbird Regina Spektor, heartthrobs Joaquin Phoenix, Ethan Hawke and Dylan McDermot to naughty but nice (to her) supermodels Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell and the list goes on.

Her work has graced the pages of such fashion magazine notables as W, Vogue, V, Harpers Bazaar, Marie Claire, Italian Flair, Elle and Elle girl, Jane, Details and T (The New York Times-Style Mag) just to name a few. 

Miss Prestidge has enjoyed a diverse client roster, from a bevy of beauty clients such as L'Oreal, Lancôme, Sephora, Dior, Redkin, Clairol, Avon, Nivea, Olay & Mary Kay to popular and luxury goods companies like Nike, BCBG, Bergdorf Goodman, Saks 5th Ave, Anthropologie, Victoria's Secret, Bloomingdales, Target, Vanity Fair Lingerie, Warner, Olga, Tommy Hilfiger, Banana Republic, Gap, Bebe, Amazon and Anne Taylor as well as tech and financial giants, Apple Macintosh, HP, IBM, B of A, Amex, Microsoft, Charles Schwab and so on.
