The beauty prescription of Violette, global beauty director of Estée Lauder

Every month, a specialist shares her best products and beauty tips with you. A new appointment inaugurated by Violette, a make-up artist based in New York.

The stunning product

Matte liquid lipstick. I was obsessed with the velvetiness of rose petals, which I tried to reproduce by mixing pure pigment and xator, but it was less comfortable.

The perfect blush

No matter the brand, the key is in the texture. It must be chosen in cream, and in a shade of pink pulling towards peach. To put on the cheeks, and possibly at the end of the nose.

The illuminating bulb

I always have an Advanced Night Repair ampoule in my bag. I divert it from its function, melted with the finger on the cheekbones, the arch of the nose or the cupid's bow. Its balm texture acts as an illuminator.

The ideal vacation blush

A metallic brown pencil. Color along and between the lashes by pulling the eyelid, then blend with your finger.

The infallible color test for lips

You have to take a selfie in natural light with a bluish red, then another with an orange-red, then compare. It's much more telling than facing a mirror.

The best eyeshadow in the supermarket

The super-filling black mascara.

Volume Million Lashes from L'Oréal Paris, €13.80

The unstoppable light-catcher

Spangles, very neat and worn in a singular way, mostly in the evening:in the heart of the mouth; in gold eyeliner, flush with the cupid's bow and at the inner corner of the eye; or in nude metallic eyeshadow with a line of tone-on-tone glitter along the lashes.

The cosmetic elite in pharmacies

Roséliane by Uriage, an anti-redness cream that saves. And the water spray that I apply after removing makeup then rinsing my skin.

Roséliane Anti-Redness Cream by Uriage, €13.10 for 40 ml, and Thermal Water Spray by Uriage, €2.98 for 50 ml

Video of the day:

The ultimate asset for beautiful skin

A matte pink balm for lips and cheekbones, which becomes transparent and glowing like morning dew.

Soft Glow Touch of Light La Rosée Estée Lauder x Violette Collection, €33 in Spring.
