“I always loved music. When I was a kid I would go to rock concerts in Paris, in the same neighborhood that I live in now. And when I moved to New York to model, all my friends were musicians, and then I started helping bands tour. And then I wanted to help them get deals, because it’s hard to get a deal if it’s not super commercial. So I came back to Paris and I met my man, and we made the label, then we fell in love. We did the label first. [Laughs] So that’s just how it all happened. I used to have my own production label, but I stopped last year. Now, I just produce for represented artists independently. We discuss the sound, the image, everything.
My approach to beauty is pretty easy; I tend to look very natural. You’ll notice for French women that it’s bad if you have too much makeup or too much surgery. If everything is too much, it doesn’t work. I’ve actually been trying to understand why, culture-wise, women can’t show off. It’s a bit sad in a way because it’s fun when people go eccentric.
I put on a lot of mascara every day. That’s the only thing I do really: mascara. I like it packed on thick; it makes you forget the under-eye bags. For skin, I have a tendency to buy everything that tells me I’m going to look younger, but it never works. Actually, I love the Shu Uemura mask for the face. It’s great for when you really feel like shit. You put it on your face and it’s a bit like coming out of a spa afterward—you glow. The one I use is black, and there are also red ones. It’s one per pack and I buy a ten pack. It’s amazing.
Chanel Sublimage La Crème Texture Suprême is my daily cream. It’s the first time I found something that’s really amazing. It changed my skin, because I’m so dry and this is so nourishing. It’s all about nourishing, anyway. It’s incredible, I mean really. It’s not just because it’s Chanel, it’s really incredible.
It’s already such a big step to take care of my skin that I don’t really take care of my hair. People will give me stuff, but I don’t have time to put a mask on. For some people it’s a treat, but for me I haven’t gone to that step yet. I only use shampoo—if I use conditioner, my hair will get flat.
I like the bangs; it’s nice. First of all, I think I kind of have a big face, so it kind of balances it all…and it hides my lines. Where girls do Botox, I put a fringe instead! [Laughs]”blog comments powered by Disqus
