“Makeup has the ability to immediately put you in a festive mood and uplift the party, just as fragrance. Both tell a story and transmit how you want to show up in the world.
I am honored to have the opportunity to work with Kilian Hennessy and the KILIAN PARIS family to share my vision of makeup. I can’t wait to create the most luxurious products to pair with the brand’s amazing perfumes and bring to life the most stunning looks to party all night long.”
