I'm at makeup artist Veronique Marot home getting a lecon. What you wear for a camera shoot like Carla Coulson's is not what you'd wear everyday.
When Veronique was 1st at my apartment doing the make-over I got this picture of her looking like a Toulouse-Lautrec...very 'flou'
'Flou' is exactly Veronique's favorite look - very soft, diffuse, blurred, au natural...
At the cafe Veronique demonstrated how to put on eyeliner or was it curling your lashes using only Shu Uemura's lash curler?
I decided I needed a lesson. I brought all my stuff to see what she thought of it.
Veronique liked my Bobbie Brown blush!
Did I say Veronique is French, lived in LA and is back living in Paris. She's done runways shows, print, everything so she knows all the tricks of the makeup trade and is happy to share them.
One of her tricks is Maybelline Great Lash in the pink and green container. Who knew the stuff we loved as teenagers was still good?
Veronique frowned on my eyebrow tweezers. Uh oh. And I must curl my eyelashes before applying the Maybelline. Double uh oh.
Thank you for showing me Bioderma - great for removing makeup and only 4 euros!
We needed it since Vero tested out three different makeup bases on my skin (two of them mine) before she was happy with Armani #5 (not mine). She uses her hands to apply makeup as well as to test it out (bye-bye my fancy makeup brush). We did everything by the window and mirror for natural light. So many times you get made-over in a department store under florescent lights and then walk outside and wonder, 'What have I done?'
Like every artist Veronique uses a paintbox. But she smushes lipsticks into hers .
A British fashion photographer saw her drawing on set. He told her to become a makeup artist et voila!
Veronique's 'book' is loaded with gorge samples.
|You can come to Veronique's place|
Or Veronique can come to you for a makeup lesson using your stuff and hers. Great fun indeed.
