Youtube And Instagram Beauty Icon Violette Is The New Creative Director For Guerlain
The Parisian makeup artist is set to take the 190-year old French beauty House to new heights!
Her 415,000 Instagram followers stay inspired with every post—either of her impeccable Parisian style, skincare and makeup how-tos, stunning color inspo, and endless beauty product recos and reviews. She's a makeup artist, and has had 17 years of experience in the beauty industry in New York and Paris. She once was the International Makeup Designer for Dior, and Global Beauty Director for Estée Lauder. Today, armed with years of experience and her own namesake brand Violette_FR, she enters into a new beauty adventure, as the Guerlain Creative Director of Makeup.
If you've obsessively followed her online on Youtube (her channel has a whopping 302,000 subscribers) and Instagram, this wouldn't be news to you. But for those who are meeting Violette for the very first time, you're in for a treat. Violette is the real deal, and she's the beauty best friend you've been dying to have!
The charming Parisian joins French cosmetics brand Guerlain to usher their makeup line into a new era. "As a little girl, [Guerlain] Météorites with its little pastel-coloured pearls for the complexion had a real aesthetic impact on me. I’d stare at the box fascinated, I couldn’t wait to become a woman... I pictured myself at my dressing table putting on lipstick, perfume and dipping a brush into these incredible Météorites. Today, I’ve been invited to write the next chapter in Guerlain’s history as Director of Makeup. That’s the magic of beauty", she shares.
The partnership seems like one made in makeup heaven—as the iconic House with such a rich heritage joins forces with a contemporary icon of modern beauty. "With her creativity, daring, Parisian chic, eye for high standards and genuine sense of commitment, Violette seemed destined to join a house synonymous with French beauty and constant innovation, still emphasizing modernity despite being over 190 years old."
