To kick off our new Best in Beauty how-to series, we tapped the Parisienne makeup artist Violette. Violette first garnered our attention working side-by-side with the Barneys creative team on our editorial shoots, and it was the recent launch of her own YouTube channel that added to her collective accolades as a leading creative force in the industry.

Violette’s background in painting at the École du Louvre and study of fashion and costume design contribute to her standout point of view and her beauty tutorials arise from her personal and very Parisian beauty aesthetic. They’re smart, refreshing, and easy to follow with her playful approach to the modern woman’s beauty routine.

Watch along as Violette demonstrates how to achieve a flawless face for New Year’s Eve parties and get the look by shopping her edit below.
