2016 has been a fascinating, crazy, exhausting year full of surprises. But there’s one thing I’ll never forget: this is the year I became an ambassador for Laura Mercier.
Beauty is such fragile territory for women, don’t you think? One day we feel beautiful, the next day we hate ourselves – it’s both profound and superficial. So when, one day, a brand as incredible as Laura Mercier asks you to become their ambassador, it feels surreal.
Wow, me, seriously?
It’s a real childhood dream of mine that’s come true…
At the same time, it makes sense. My story with the brand started a long time ago – and that’s how this relationship came about. Because Laura Mercier talks about keeping it natural, having that glow, and honestly most of all, makes killer makeup that I recommend to my friends all the time. I’ve been using their foundations and powders forever. After that, I met Laura several times, and I loved how even though this woman is in charge of an empire, she’s so real, so cool.
We are also connected through our origins, by France. A more subtle, discreet approach to beauty. French women love makeup but they would never want anyone to be able to see it!
Today I’m delighted to show you this video, shot with real friends, real French women, where we try to answer the question: What is beauty, from a French perspective?
