What does 'universally flattering' makeup mean?

Makeup artist Violette is the quintessential French girl, but these days her jam-packed schedule reads more like ambitious New Yorker than laissez-faire Pa

, a limited edition collection of face, cheek and eye palettes as well as four matte lipsticks, all in neutral shades “that flatter all skin tones.” But what does universally flattering mean? We asked her that, along with why Instagram brows bother her, what she misses most about Paris, and why she wants to write a book about pregnancy.

What’s involved in the creation of universally flattering shades versus shades designed for a certain skin tone?

you considered a particular shade in the palette one of the best products you’ve ever created. What are you most proud of in this collection?

“I think Instagram eyebrows look like stamps or tattoos—I struggle with it because it looks fake, it doesn’t look like you. The other one is false eyelashes. All these girls are starting to wear them all the time, and it’s getting out of control. I really want to inspire people to go back to the celebration of their natural beauty. That doesn’t mean avoiding colour; I wear glitter when I go for brunch. It’s just [avoiding] makeup that will change your features, like false lashes and very strong eyebrows. To me, it’s just trying a bit too hard, and almost like transforming yourself into a cartoon. I love when women are in tune with themselves, grounded and confident that they are born perfect. Everybody is born perfect.”
