FRANCESCA VUILLEMIN

 
 
BABES

“I was born in Strasbourg, France but moved to Australia when I was twelve. I’ve since lived all over the world and have made New York my home. My mother was an opera singer and my father was a violinist at the Strasbourg Philharmonic. I would watch my parents perform and be fascinated by seeing my mother in her elaborate costumes. I ended up meeting a couture designer who suggested I meet with an agency and the rest is history; that’s how my journey started as a model. I love doing jobs where I can completely transform. I did a Redken campaign that came out this year where I look very otherworldly.

When I wake from my slumber I drink a big glass of water and eat a green apple. Then I wash my face with Amore Pacific Treatment Cleansing Foam and splash some cold water on my face. I use a cotton disc to dry and remove any remaining residue. The last step in my skin care routine is to apply Guinot Age Logic Cellulaire.

In terms of makeup, I use OCC (Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics) Tinted Moisturizer in shade Y2. OCC is my favorite cosmetics brand, I was lucky to get booked for their F/W campaign, which will be in Sephora mid-September. I also love their concealer; I add a touch around any spots or dark circles. I have big big cheeks, so for blush I like to apply a loose color– either Datura, an iridescent pink or Flicker which, is more peachy.

For my lips, I use OCC Clear Lip Tar, it’s a great lip treatment with peppermint and hemp seed oil. And since it’s summer, I also like to wear super bold shades like OCC’s Lip Tar in Vintage and Queen.

The ultimate luxury spa I have visited would have to be the Dolder Grand Spa. It’s in the outer area of Zurich, Switzerland, it is amazing!”
