Best known for her chic box clutches resembling classic tomes (Lou Doillon, Annabel Dexter-Jones and Chloe Sevigny are fans), Parisian accessories and clothing designer Olympia Le-Tan has that "je ne sais quoi" quality we fancy. She’s smart, chic, and effortlessly cool. Now, she’s teamed with Lancôme to create a special collector’s edition case for their In Love range. Each minaudiere comes with her favorite shades of the brand’s lipstick and nail polish.
We especially love the peaches-and-cream beauty’s personal aesthetic—which can be described as a light-hearted take on pin-up Hollywood glamour: Vargas curves, Bettie Page red lips and Lana Turner waves—which is why we asked her for the scoop.
OLT’s Glowy-Skin Formula: "I wash my face in the morning with Nuxe Rève de Miel soap, then I put on some Dr Hauschka Light Rose Cream and that’s really it. At night, I clean my face with some Bioderma Créaline H20 on cotton wool and, if my skin feels dry, I put on some moisturizer before going to bed too. I am quite lazy with this kind of stuff so I do as little as possible. My favorite skincare brand is Dr. Hauschka. I love the smells and it feels super natural and fresh."
OLT’s Makeup: "I only use lipstick—Lancôme Rouge in Love (shade 159) or MAC Ruby Woo—and occasionally a bit of black mascara, Hypnôse by Lancôme. My lashes are very short and Hypnôse makes them look much longer. I never wear any foundation. I don’t like having anything on my skin and my cheeks tend to blush quite naturally so I hardly ever use blush."
