Alphonse from the ill-named blog La Défreshie (because when you see her author, you say to yourself that we would all like to be withered like this) is a bit the girl that we want to hate but we can’t : beautiful without fireworks, bubbly, funny, witty, and lovable. Perfect ?
On her blog, she tells anecdotes that make you smile or think, she offers simple and effective makeup tutorials and shows some outfits in which we can all recognize each other. We are very happy to have been able to collaborate with her for our Skin Ideal shoot . Alphonse embodies the beauty advice: choose your side . We’ve all heard it before: it’s either the eyes or the mouth. This is even more true when you are over 20 and overuse of makeup is counterproductive.
We chose to highlight Alphonse’s pretty blue-gray eyes by highlighting them with the Sfumato S24 pencil and the Sfumato S20 eye shadow . You will find on the e-shop the complete details of her makeup and can offer it to yourself by taking advantage of an advantageous offer : 3 products purchased, the third offered, free delivery and the urban pouch offered to store your UNE products. .
Now discover all of Alphonse’s good beauty tips through this mini interview:
1. At 37, do you feel twice as much… compared to when you were younger?
I feel twice as defined. In fact, I like the imprint that time has left on me. Or rather, what have I done with all these experiences – good or bad. We are building a little more every day, and I’m curious to know where I will be when I turn 74.
2. In your opinion, after your thirties, what becomes essential in makeup?
Without hesitation, a beautiful complexion, unified and luminous!
3. What is the best beauty advice you have received from one of the women around you?
My mom always encouraged me to take care of my skin. It is therefore thanks to her that I hydrate her every day, since the age of 17. Otherwise, around the same time, a friend told me that she was well aware that she was not perfect, but in order to feel beautiful, she focused on the parts of her face that she liked. It was the secret of his confidence that I admired so much. I can’t always do it, but I know she was right.
4. How do you wear makeup on a daily basis?
In general, I apply a product to unify the complexion: tinted cream or foundation, as long as the coverage is light. And a little blush for the healthy glow. I don’t necessarily use mascara; however, I always curl my eyelashes to open my eyes. Otherwise, if my skin is fine, I don’t wear anything. The downside is that I look like I’m 85 years old.
5. Do you have a beauty secret to share with us?
Hydration! I recently discovered hyaluronic acid. Since I put it systematically before applying my day cream, I see a real difference! Ah and drink plenty of water, too. For a clearer complexion and a refined skin texture, I have been using a product based on glycolic acid for some time. The results are there, I’m completely crazy about it. Obviously, all skins are different. You have to know how to listen to your needs, and above all, not to attack them.
6. What do you particularly like about the Skin Ideal?
The feeling of comfort it provides all day. The skin is soft, hydrated, and luminous until the evening. It is a light product as I like them, which does not mark and which unifies without being noticed.
7. What is your favorite UNE product to complement your makeup with Skin Ideal?
The Blush Grand air : very natural and easy to work with.
8. What is the worst makeup faux pas you can do after 30?
Since I live in England, I had to revise my criteria somewhat! English women are not afraid of anything and, basically, they are quite right. In the end, we don’t care about the misstep. The most important thing is to feel good and have fun. And then the advantage of makeup is that it comes off!
