“After studying economics I realized that numbers were not for me. I’m more of a cream, lipstick and perfume kind of person (laughs). So I started out in the industry working at ELLE France. I got an internship for thee months in the beauty department and when that ended I started working wit them on freelance projects. And now of course I work there full time as a Beauty Editor. I really enjoy my work. We have an amazing team and spending hours opening bags of new cosmetics is always very exciting.
I cycle through products really fast clean out my bathroom often. I’ve been using less cosmetics than last years and I m very careful with the ingredients that I do use. I try to use at least eight percent organic products and now that I am pregnant I am even more careful.
In the morning I do a sprtiz of Eau Florale de Lavande from Melvita. I am still looking for the perfect organic cream, but at the moment I’m using one by Ren. I’m not a huge fan of the texture though. I also like the Rose Otto Face Oil by Estelle & Thild, but I mostly use that in the summer time.
After I moisturize I apply my makeup, which is so minimal. I use a little bit of Decleor BB crème, Terracotta de Guerlain and a “soupçon” of Blushing Fabric from Armani. I love Dior mascara, especially the last one, Overcurl the effect is perfect!
On special nights out I’ve learned a great trick from makeup artist Violette. She taught me how to do a very light smoky eye. I use Clarins black Kohl or a liner from Kajaja. I bought it in Morocco four years ago and I never found it again.
In the evening I clean my skin with water and soap or gel, cleanser. Currently I’m using Erborian BB Cleanser followed by a sprtiz of my Eau Florale. Then I put on a huge amount of night cream. I love really oily creams or even hard oils. I have very sensitive and really dry skin so I love to go to bed with something heavy on my face, which can cause my boyfriend look at me with curiously! Depending on my mood, I’m alternate between Huile 27, Rose Otto from Estelle and Thild or Egyptian Magic.”
