When Shawnelle Prestidge met Jane Fonda working on a L’Oréal commercial in the mid-aughts, their bond was immediate. “I remember how regal yet approachable she was,” recalled Prestidge. “She had given me a handful of compliments, and asked for my phone number and if I’d be interested in doing her makeup for a film that she had in the works.” While the film never came to fruition, that day marked the start of their decade-long relationship. Fonda was also the inspiration behind Prestidge’s decision to launch her namesake, much buzzed about five-product line Prestidge Beauté Active Organics, two years ago. Her gold-ticket item is her Ageless Skin Serum, which boasts 15 high-vibrating, nutrient-rich essential oils, and active botanicals.
Prestidge Beauté's Ageless Skin Serum is kind of a do-all serum. It's one of the pricier options on this list, but it's a powerful little product. Not only does it smell great, it also helps clear up blemishes and moisturizes and calms the skin. Once rubbed in, this serum works well under makeup -- it doesn't leave skin looking greasy or shiny, and products go on so smoothly over top. If you're into supporting American-made products, you'll also like that Prestidge products are made in Brooklyn, New York, and are by Jane Fonda's makeup artist, no less. Prestidge Beauté Ageless Skin Serum, $125
Makeup artist Shawnelle Prestidge has been the secret weapon behind many of Jane Fonda’s makeup looks for several years. Considering how flawless Fonda looks every time she hits the red carpet, we had to pick Prestidge's brain on her makeup musts—both for the 81 year old actress and those with more mature skin types in general.

“THE SERUM TO TOP ALL SERUMS!
TRULY, THIS AMAZING OIL HAS NOW REPLACED MY EYE CREAM, ALL MY OTHER SERUMS AND TREATMENTS, AND MY DAYTIME MOISTURIZER.
I’M IN MY MID SIXTIES AND I JUST SAW A PHOTO OF MYSELF THAT CONFIRMED WHAT I THOUGHT... AFTER USING THE SERUM, THE TONIC, AND SALVE FOR ABOUT 5 WEEKS MY SKIN REALLY DOES LOOK DIFFERENT ....YOUNGER PLUMPER AND BRIGHTER. I HAVE SPENT SO MUCH MONEY AND EFFORT TRYING TO FIND SKINCARE THAT REALLY WORKS AND VERY FEW PRODUCTS LIVE UP TO THE HYPE. THIS OIL IS DIFFERENT! THERE IS SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT IT, THERE REALLY IS.
I JUST STARTED MY SECOND BOTTLE AND FEEL I HAVE FINALLY FOUND A PRODUCT I LOVE. I USE THE SALVE AND THE TONIC, TOO ....ANY CHANCE THE TONIC COULD ALSO COME IN AN A LARGER SIZE?”
— ALISON R. | A HAPPY CUSTOMER
“I AM REALLY LOVING THE AGELESS SKIN SERUM...IT’S SO LIGHT WEIGHT YET COMPLETELY LUXURIOUS FEELING AND I AM SO INCREDIBLY IMPRESSED BY THE “LIFT” IT GIVES! I’VE NEVER SEEN ANOTHER OIL DO THAT AND THE FIRST TIME I USED IT ON MY NECK I WAS ABSOLUTELY FLOORED BY HOW MUCH IT LIFTED AND HELPED SOFTEN MY NECKLACE LINES!!!”
“SHAWNELLE INTRODUCED ME TO HER FABULOUS AGELESS SKIN SERUM AND IT WAS BEYOND WHAT I EVEN KNEW WAS POSSIBLE IN ANY PRODUCT-LET ALONE AN ORGANIC ONE. INSTANTLY MY SKIN WAS HYDRATED, MY DREADED UNDER EYES BAGS WERE SMOOTHED, MY FINE LINES HAD SOFTENED, AND OVERALL MY WHOLE FACE WAS LIFTED AND THE TEXTURE WAS GREATLY IMPROVED. NOW THAT IT IS SUMMER-SINCE USING THIS AMAZING PRODUCT-I NO LONGER NEED FOUNDATION…JUST A TOUCH OF CONCEALER AND POWDER AND MY SKIN IS RADIANT. IF YOU WANT TO SEE DRAMATIC RESULTS IMMEDIATELY-TRY THIS PURE, SUPERIOR, PRODUCT THAT IS MADE WITH LOVE!”
“I BOUGHT SOME OF SHAWNELLE’S PRODUCT (AGELESS SKIN SERUM) AT A BROOKLYN SHOPPING DAY (BKLYN SHOPS) AND AM COMPLETELY OBSESSED WITH IT. IT WORKS. IT SMELLS AMAZING, FEELS SO GOOD, AND IT REALLY DOES TAKE DOWN PUFFINESS AND SOMEHOW SMOOTH THE SKIN SO WELL THAT IT REDUCE THE APPEARANCE OF SOME OF MY LINES. I CAN’T ACTUALLY BELIEVE HOW GREAT IT IS – USUALLY SKIN STUFF JUST FEELS NICE, BUT THIS ONE IS NEXT LEVEL.”
“I HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH ACNE LATELY ALL OVER MY CHIN AND FOREHEAD, BUT AS SOON AS I WAS INTRODUCED TO AGELESS SKIN SERUM, MY SKIN IMMEDIATELY FELT SOOTHED AND HYDRATED, AND MY ACNE BEGAN HEAL WITHIN DAYS. THIS BEHIND THE SCENES PICTURE WAS TAKEN A COUPLE WEEKS AFTER I STARTED USING IT-I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT IT”
Prestidge Beauté Ageless Skin Serum. "People are all over Vintner's Daughter right now, but this is better and less expensive......the woman behind the brand is an industry titan, including being Jane Fonda’s make-up artist for over a decade."JASPRE GUEST | BEAUTY + WELLNESS GODDESS
"Shawnelle gave me a tester of the Ageless Skin Serum to try and I would have used it just because it smelled so fantastic. But within a day or two I already noticed the fine smile lines around my mouth and the scowl lines between my eyes practically disappear. The skin under and around my eyes started to plump up within a week. I can't wait to see how my skin will look after a month or two. It just keeps getting better."
