We caught up with Violette_FR to find out exactly what she swears by when it comes to achieving that effortless Parisian glamour look. Here are her five key products and tips:
1) The first step? Hydration is key! Whether it’s our Clarisonic Mia 2 or a simple face lotion, make sure you’re moisturizing your skin every day. Especially during winter months when dry skin will be the norm!
Facial moisturizer: “I love this Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream because it doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy.”
2) Makeup – I always apply a light layer of concealer under my eyes to get rid of dark circles before I head out in the morning (Violette_FR uses Kevyn Aucoin’s The Concealer). I also use Tarte Cosmetics Shape Tape Contour Concealer to spot conceal any blemishes or redness around my nose and chin. When applying blush or bronzer (Violette_FR loves Jouer Cosmetics Tinted Moisturizer), apply them before you powder so they go on super sheer and natural-looking; don’t forget a swipe of highlighter above your cheekbones for extra glow!
Under-eye concealer: “The best one I’ve ever found is from Kevyn Aucoin—it blends perfectly!” Contouring: “My favourite product for contouring at the moment is Tarte’s Shape Tape Contour Concealer.” Blush/Bronzer/Highlighter: Apply these before powdering so they go on super sheer and natural looking”
3) Eyes – Last but not least comes eyeshadow! I love using something matte, like MAC Matte Eyeshadow in Teddy; after applying some along my eyelid, I blend it into an even layer using an eye blender brush (I like Sigma Beauty E40 Eye Shader Brush). For lashes, a deep black mascara will do wonders (Violette_FR uses Lancome Grandiose Mascara in Noir Black)—if you want something more dramatic try Lancome Grandiose Extase Mascara in Noir Black too—for extra length!
And don’t forget brows—a clear eyebrow gel will keep them tame all day long!” MAC Matte Eyeshadows Teddy Duo :”It has just enough shimmering taupe shades for everyday wear.” Sigma Beauty E40 Eye Shader Brush :”It makes blending easy so lines are less noticeable.” Lancome Grandiose Mascara Noir Black :”It gets every lash easily without clumping.” Lancome Grandiose Extase Mascara Noir Black :”It gives me major length!”
