Congratulations to make-up artist Violette, who is bringing her French girl cool—and much, much more—to Estée Lauder as its new global beauty director.
Known for her unique approach to beauty, from an early age Violette studied art before going into fashion, costume design and then make-up artistry which she sees as way of dressing the face.
Violette’s empowering mantra is to “use make-up to celebrate who you are instead of changing what you look like”–something everyone can apply.
Her incredible artistic skill combined with refusal to conform to trends has garnered her a cult following on YouTube. She will now also host how-to videos for Estée Lauder, but we don’t expect a contouring tutorial any time soon.
Speaking to WWD, Violette said “the one thing that I don’t relate to is contouring, for sure. For me it goes against my philosophy of being who you are.”
Some of her recent popular how-to’s include ‘The French Kissed Look’, ‘Light Coverage Foundation Technique’ and ‘My Bardot Look’, shared below.
We think she’s the perfect person to inspire a new conversation in make-up. Bring it on.
