My secret to beautiful eyebrows
I’m heading back to NYC tonight, but before leaving Paris, I wanted to share with you my beauty recipe for an impecable glare.As a lot of you requested, let’s start off by focusing on the eyebrows I’ll have to keep this short or this is soon going to turn into a beauty blog!
I like dark and thick eyebrows. In my opinion it really frames your eyes and gives them a determined intensity.
There are several different ways you can accentuate/ shape your eyebrows, either with a crayon, or with a special brow mascara (a simple technique I use on the regs. Click here to reread my post about it) or even with a light semi-permanent tattoo. I have to insist on the importance of it being light, as the end results needs to look natural. You absolutely need to avoid the rigid black lines of certain tattoos. For 3 years now, I’ve been using this technique spot by spot to fill the gaps between the hairs. But now let me introduce you to Isabelle, the eyebrow magician! Its her that draws out the shape of my eyebrows and that gives me my little tattoo touchup twice a year for an impeccable line. Needless to say I trust her completely and I’ve always been happy with the result. So I’m introducing her to you without any hesitation. Isabelle is a professional, delicate and precise, and will in the blink of an eye determine the right shape adapted to your face And if, like me, you don’t really like wearing make-up, I’d recommend on top of a wax (and tattoo if need be) to do an eyelash tint for a black coal effect without mascara!
Ouuuuuuuu Isa’s pretty boots (brand: Alaia). As the french proverb goes : “jolie jusqu’au bout des ongles (de pieds!)” (pretty to the tip of the nails (and feet))” !
No, it doesn’t hurt (says a real chicken: me !)
So there you have it! Don’t hesitate to contact Isabelle on my behalf. Here’s her email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Bisous, and see you tomorrow in New York City !

I hope you all had a good start to the week.
I’m currently undertaking a project and I’ve been meaning to tell you guys about it. I know I should probably wait for it to be finished before the big reveal, but I’m really too excited and impatient! Last Friday I was lucky enough to take part in the creation of mini videos with the Clarins team. They’re beauty tutorials where I go over the basics to keep a healthy and beautiful skin, as well as the solid bases for natural and lasting make-up. A video will be posted every 6 months on the Clarins blog: The Beauty Flash Blog. I’ll obviously let you know the minute the first one is online
Furthermore, still on the topic of beauty, I’m writing this post to you a little late at night as I was running around between meetings all day. Around 5pm, as I was on my way home to write to you, I caught my reflection in the window of the subway- and it wasn’t pretty! So I succumbed to the temptation of a perm + eye lash tint to brighten up my complexion and spirits! Here’s the result (sorry for the poor quality of the picture but I had just come out of the shower!)
