Constaaaaance! My favorite frenchie model. She’s stunning, so cool, and smart that we did a career interview with her – do you remember?

This week, Estée Lauder is launching their new website, and I will be a regular contributor with articles on products of my choice on The Estée Edit. I’m very happy about this project – not only am I going to learn the ins and outs of a super cult brand, but I’ll also be working with the very best – Constance, Liu Wen, Joan Smalls, Carolyn Murphy… Not a bad line up, right?

I had to start with Constance, and I had to start with lipstick.

I decided to talk about Pure Color Envy. The technology in this lipstick is unbelievable – I got to see a half-hour demo with the head of make-up (dream job alert!!!) at Estée Lauder who showed me why it’s revolutionary… But I’m afraid I can’t explain it to you : I totally forgot everything. But it’s okay – the thing is, what counts is how good it makes you look.

Lipstick is something special to me. When I started this blog, that was kind of the signature of all my illustrations, and kind of my personal signature too – I wore it all the time. Then little by little, I sort of left red lipstick behind to focus on eyes – and then when I cut my hair, red made a big come back.
I love wearing it, especially during the day, casually, as an accessory to brighten up my pretty minimalist style – it’s a simple way to give confidence and femininity… Which is why I decided to shoot Constance in a very natural, not too dressed up or made up way.

I’ve always wanted to shoot more beauty, because I think there is a way to make it more intimate and approachable. That’s why I’m excited about this project, and that’s why I wanted to tell you about it! Kisses!
