Here are a few photos I took over the weekend.

Make-Up Atelier Paris: Professional Makeup Divine

In 1986 Hélène Quillé introduced to the professional makeup world Make-Up Atelier Paris:  her collection of face, eye and lip colors, as well as incredible brushes in natural and synthetic fibers.  Since that time the brand has been revered by makeup artists, and recently I’ve been hearing more and more about this great company via myriad gurus, notably Wayne Goss.

Luckily, Makeup Atelier was easy enough for me to find here in Paris, and I visited the boutique one afternoon last week.  The quality is amazing, and trust me, I’ve tried it all.  Anouk, a beautiful and patient makeup artist walked me around the collection, and taught me a few tricks of the trade as well (application is key….and practice makes perfect!).   I had a wonderful time and of course treated myself to many goodies.  I am delighted with everything I purchased and I’m hooked! 

If you live in Paris this is a must-do destination; but you can also order online.   All information will be noted below my photos.  
Please subscribe, share and comment!  Love, Myra
