VI­O­LETTE’S Se­cret Weapons

THE PARISIAN MAKEUP PRO CHAN­NELS HER CRE­ATIV­ITY INTO SO­CIAL- ME­DIA TU­TO­RI­ALS

“I’M VERY ANTI-TREND,” Vi­o­lette says. “I don’t like be­ing told what to do.” She di­rected that re­bel­lious spirit into her own Youtube chan­nel, ig­nor­ing in­dus­try pros who warned her the mass move could be a lit­tle cheesy. But in just over a year, Vi­o­lette has racked up more than 160,000 sub­scribers. From paint­ing glit­ter cat eyes to pulling off blue lip­stick, the bolder the trend, the cooler she makes it look on In­sta­gram. And as Estée Lauder’s global beauty di­rec­tor, she has a hand in cre­at­ing new prod­ucts. “I’ve al­ways worked with pig­ments, mix­ing to make dif­fer­ent tex­tures.” Her motto: “Base your makeup on your mood each day.”

“I love lay­er­ing to achieve di­men­sion. While liq­uid lip­stick is still wet, I add a very thin coat of pig­ment with a brush. Then I pat glit­ter onto the cen­ter of lips.” For a splash of color, dip a tooth­brush into liq­uid pig­ment or glit­ter, then flick...

Vi­o­lette’s DIY high­lighter recipe: “Mix this shim­mer pow­der with balm for a soft veil over the eyes.”

“I don’t re­ally use foun­da­tion. In­stead, I put on this balm; it has a bit of shim­mer and blurs im­per­fec­tions. And I use con­cealer only where it’s needed.”
