How To

Get The Look: Violette Creates The ‘MECCA Eye’

January 1 | 2 minute watch

With her luminous bare skin, flushed cheeks, tousled bangs and that unmistakable twinkle in the eye, Violette is a picture of beauty, the French way: effortless and impossibly chic.

Her namesake brand, VIOLETTE_FR, embraces her enviable aesthetic while bringing joie de vivre back to beauty with playful colour and clever formats that love to be applied on the go.

Watch on as Violette works her magic with soft, pink, tender tones swept effortlessly across eyes, lips and cheeks in this exclusive 'MECCA Eye’ tutorial, created to celebrate the launch of VIOLETTE_FR at MECCA. From spritz-on skin prep granting supernatural glow, to the perfect just-bitten lip applied in a few swipes, emulating ‘French-girl beauty’ can now be achieved with little effort – and in just two minutes!

Step 1: Start with VIOLETTE_FR Boum-Boum Milk, spritzed twice into the hands then applied across the face. Violette takes any leftover product through the lengths of her hair. Follow with C’est La Cream to lock everything in.

Step 2: Next, Violette skips foundation in favour of NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. Keep it light-handed, applying only where required to ensure skin shines through.

Step 3: A slight interlude to refresh your bangs with a few taps of the Frange Puff – a clever dry shampoo brush.

Step 4: For a natural-looking flush, take the Bisou Blush in 'Louise' across cheekbones and blend out towards the hairline with the brush (hidden at the other end).

Step 5: Paint a dot of Yeux Paint Matte in ‘Tendre de Corail’ in the middle of each eyelid, then pat to diffuse the pigment across the entire eye. Do this quickly – the formula dries fast!

Step 6: Apply Yeux Paint Twinkling in ‘Rose d’Aurore’ to the inner corners and trace gently along the lower waterline. Then, apply several liberal coats your favourite mascara!

Step 7: On the lips, Bisou Balm in ‘Amour Fou’ for an easy, authentic finish.

Step 8: Back to the cheeks, add a kiss of Bisou Blush in ‘Ines’ to the apples and blend with fingertips. Achieve a ‘glass skin’ effect by tapping in Baume Shine onto the highpoints of your cheeks and your Cupid’s bow. Blend with fingertips.
