What inspires me?
Legendary women, traveling, and going to galleries and museums.
Three things I would take with me to a deserted island?
My love, my Rouge CoCo Shine and bubbles!
Top looks for Fall 2012?
The gothic red chic lip, but to make this successful it must be mat!
Playing on the eyes with blue colour: for the audacious one otherwise black on the entire eyelid is an evidence this fall.
My secret: always having a great manicure and perfect skin!
If I wasn’t a makeup artist, I would be?
Difficult question because my contribution is a privilege but for sure something linking with creation and stars.
