BABES

“I’m a ballerina, I will be a ballerina all my life, even when I stop. I was dancing at the Paris Opera Ballet since I was nine years old. I also danced for five years at La Scala in Milan. Because of my friend Chelsea, I also started a new passion, DJing; she really gave me her love of music. I am starting as a resident DJ at the Costes. I really love the Costes and they have been amazing, I trained with their amazing DJs Tom Costino and Simon Rezlem who are incredible. I do my ballet training in the morning and then I work on my music in the afternoon and at night I go and learn from the guys.

I wake up in the morning and have my green tea which I think is good for my skin. Then I start putting my Avène, it’s like a fresh water. Then I clean myself and use my cream of Avène. I was not using Avène before but it was recommended and I like the smell.

I am a big big fan of perfumes, my best are: Annick Goutal, Jo Malone, Diptyque and Creed. I have all the different kinds but I never use commercial ones. I always try to look for something very special, perfumes avec des fleurs. I just found a new one that I like with white flowers. I change them a lot because I like to go back and smell them. It’s like a film, it reminds you of everything, the person, how, where-it’s funny. I love that.

I like the Laura Mercier concealer because it comes in a box with two colors. Since my skin is a little bit dry I use another one that is more creamy from the pharmacy, La Roche Posay. I use a bit of black on my eyes, but very natural. I’m not so much about mascara, just on stage. I use the Burberry one they offered me. I try to be very natural, never looking like I have too much on.

Sometimes during the day I wear lipstick but at night I always wear lipstick. I use CHANEL, which I love and I really like the smell of their lipsticks. I’m using also MAC, which stays on all night long because it’s makeup for shows — that’s what I use on stage.

I use Bioderma to take off my makeup at night and then Avène spray again. I use some special stuff from the dermatologist, but I don’t even know what is it, but it burns [laughs]. I also use a cream which is pretty crazy, it’s for when your skin is being bad. It’s not really working right now, because I’ve been drinking a lot of wine [laughs].  Then I go to bed and hope that when I wake up something’s going to happen.”
