Yesterday my friend Michele came by the Studio to say hello, and it gave Alex and I a sudden burst of inspiration.
Well ok, you’re right. It’s not very difficult to be inspired by Michele. That face !

Anyway, so. Fully inspired, we trapped her in the bathroom to try a look we’ve been talking about forever and had a million pictures of on our mood boards.

Black eyes. But like, really black, and accentuated by a nude face and pale lips.

Alex wanted to give it a try (Alex is our beauty fanatic, remember her nails?) and even if we were pretty sure it was could end up in disaster (“Sure you don’t want me to do it, Al?”), (not that I would have done it better, but, you know…), she did a great job in a couple minutes, so hopefully it’s not a super difficult look to achieve for days when you feel you don’t have a personality.

Because I mean, with eyes like that, it gives you attitude in a second, a charm. A lot of personality.

I also feel it’s a very French thing to do, but maybe I am biased ?

And since we didn’t have a name for the look, we called it The French.

I love it ! What do you think ?

PS : Below, a couple of pictures from our moodboards.
PPS : Alex used L’Oréal Extra Intense Liquid Pencil Eyeliner in Black and L’Oréal Infallible Gel Lacquer Liner in Blackest Black.
