The launch of French makeup artist Violette’s namesake collection sent waves through the global beauty world. Her approach to beauty is clever, creative and yet effortless. VIOLETTE_FR is an edit of beauty staples to transition your daytime look to evening glam. Skincare infused formulations, bold, playful colour and understated packaging.
Get to know the edit
I love a good face mist but this takes misting to a new level. It’s packed with skin-loving ingredients like Birch Sap, Glacier Water and Olive Leaf Extract. A hydrating, soothing and balancing milky mist – spray and press onto the skin. It’s your toner, serum and liquid moisturising primer in one!
Think Glossier’s Haloscope but more subtle and designed to suit all skin tones. It’s a creamy balm that glides onto the skin, blends in seamlessly and stars one of my favourite skin ingredients squalane! If you’re in the market for a new cream highlight you can’t go wrong with this one.
Violette encourages us to push our colour comfort zones and play with bright shades and different textures. Yeux Paints offer intensely pigmented liquid eyeshadow + liners in 3 natural matte shades and 3 subtle shimmery bright shades. Tout Doux is a beautiful nude brown you can sweep over the lids to spice up a bronzed, glowy look and Bleu de Minuit is the blue winged liner you’ll want to try.
The French staple – a red lip. Violette’s Petal Bouche is a rich, velvety matte formulated into the ultimate red for every skin tone. It’s no wonder it’s been years in the making! A smooth, statement lip to take any look to the next level in seconds.
I love the concept of including a fragrance into this edit. The layer of scent that we choose to wear on our skin can really complete our final look or mood for the day. Violette gets this and has delivered on a musky, warm, earthy and sensual roll on blend you’re going to want to wear daily. It’s sexy, it’s inviting, it’s sophisticated and will neatly fit into your handbag.
