A new make-up brand doesn’t happen every day, and yet, here’s ONE… Yep, that’s its name: One. And she has so many fairies hunched over her crib that if her products don’t sell, I eat my press card!
Delphine aka Deedee, as the name of her excellent blog that she has masterfully maintained since 2005, is a pretty Parisian full of energy , editorial manager of Cosmopolitain.fr and recently author of the book 5 seasons in Paris which compiles all its good Parisian addresses: restaurants, tearooms, bars, but also unexpected shopping routes, places to be pampered, unique walks, etc.
Brilliant, talented and hedonistic, Delphine is a girl who inspires us . For our Skin Ideal shoot , she embodies the beauty advice “the best is the enemy of the good”. Because yes, if you want to look younger, you have to lighten the makeup to unify without thickness.
For the foundation, we always opt for the shade closest to its natural skin tone (and to find it, we do the test by putting the product on the jaw and we check in daylight if the shade is the right one. or not). Too bright, she fades. Too dark, it ages.
Delphine lent herself with zeal to the beauty interview game. Here are some of his tips for just being you:
1. At 34, do you feel twice as much… compared to when you were younger?
Sure of myself. In fact, I realize that I didn’t like my late teens and twenties. At that age, we look for each other a lot, we grope, we are not sure of anything. I don’t necessarily have more certainties, but I know how to listen to my intuitions. And I think I can more easily unwind the thread of my life.
2. In your opinion, after your thirties, what becomes essential in makeup?
A beautiful lipstick with a strong color: it wakes up the complexion and we assume it more than 20 years.
3. What is the best beauty advice you have received from one of the women around you?
Stop accumulating: creams, make-up … My mother tells me that in “her time”, she only had a good soap and a good moisturizer, and that she never needed to spread herself. at will with fifteen different products! I retain a certain simplicity, and a loyalty in the products I use.
4. How do you wear makeup on a daily basis?
Always the same: a BB cream to unify the complexion, a cloud of loose powder to mattify, a large line of brown eyeliner. Sometimes I add a touch of fiery red. That’s all.
5. Do you have a beauty secret to share with us?
To make a lipstick stick, I apply a little moisturizing lip balm. Then, I apply a little loose powder with my fingertips, I apply the lipstick: it holds up really well!
6. What do you particularly like about the Skin Ideal?
The fact that it does not mask the skin: it unifies and perfects the complexion but lets it breathe.
7. What is your favorite UNE product to complement your makeup with Skin Ideal?
I like the range of reds in semi-tones : the colors are natural and I like this idea of the treatment that complements the makeup.
8. What is the worst makeup faux pas you can do after 30?
As long as you feel beautiful, there is, in my opinion, no faux pas when it comes to makeup. Well, for sure, loading the complexion, the eyes, the mouth with a thousand different colors, that’s never a very good idea…!

And if you missed the interview with Violette from the blog Sois Belle et Parle as well as that with Cécile from the blog The Beauty and the Geek, catch-up sessions here and there .
By a vote of 290 to 135, the House of Representatives passed a $.62-cent-per-pack federal tax increase on cigarettes. This new tax will increase health care for an estimated four million children in the United States and with unemployment climbing higher each day; this is a much-needed bill. However, what the Obama administration has apparently failed to recognize is an inclusion in the current stimulus package, which provides $75 million for smoking cessation activities.
It is unclear to me what the activities for smoking cessation involve, but I can almost bet it has to do with getting people to quit smoking. So why tax something if you are trying to get it to go away? This makes no sense and I can understand why most republicans voted against it, even if it was for a different reason.
Do our elected officials even know or care what they are voting on and signing? I heard on the Senate Debates that the stimulus package also includes money for heated pools in Hawaii. I have been to Hawaii and they do not need heated pools.
Another point I heard was if new jobs are created to build or repair bridges and roads, what happens when the jobs are done? What if the economy is not yet strong enough to support people when they once more become unemployed? Will our government try to pass another bailout bill?
Building and repairing roads and bridges is a good thing, but that will only employee people in the construction field or those employed making the materials, tools, and machinery needed for the actual construction. What about other professions that are unemployed? Some might argue that they can be trained, and they would be right. However, not fast enough to help the unemployment rate go down before we need another bailout.
The $400 million for STD screening and prevention was removed from the package, but the money was left in to use elsewhere. How does that help?
If people would take the time to listen to these debates, they would realize just how much the American taxpayers are being duped into paying for ridiculous things. The stimulus package is over 600 pages long and over $900 billion and still growing.
Ideas might sound great, but if they are acted upon hastily and not thoroughly thought out by all those involved, they can prove to cause more harm than good. By the way, I am not a smoker.
