Drainage, bare lips and a healthy glow… Carla Bruni-Sarkozy’s beauty secrets revealed by her make-up artist

Mayia Alleaume has been inventing Carla Bruni-Sarkozy for several years now. She reveals the underside of this beauty collaboration.

Mayia Alleaume founded the Sentara Holistic brand in 2007. But he, who combines the roles of voice therapist and lithotherapist, has also been inventing Carla Bruni for many years. Maya Alyomi wasn’t necessarily cut out for makeup, but she had the chance to meet Topolino, who was considered the makeup freak at the time (he worked with Björk and in particular the Red Hot Chili Peppers). Becoming her assistant, she enters the world of fashion, which fascinates her. He travels a lot and goes to work in the United States.

“Sunny and Generous”

In 2016, upon her return to France, she was offered the make-up of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy for a video when the latter released an album of covers. “I dressed her a long time ago for the Chanel show, but it wasn’t the same terms. We have to go quickly, we really don’t have time to talk. There I had a discovery. she is such a sunny and generous woman, someone both very grounded and very funny. Little by little I saw that he trusted me. And so their collaboration began.

It is a real pleasure for a makeup artist to change the shape, colors and textures according to the events.

But what is the makeup mark of a member of the very closed clan of supermodels? “His big blue eyes! You can play with all colors: khaki, plum, brown, silver… Go with smoky eyes or natural beauty, use warm or cool tones; everything suits him.” Mayia Alleaume also explains that the blue of her iris changes with the tone of the eyeshadow. “It’s a real pleasure for a make-up artist to change the shape, colors and textures according to the events (premiere, fashion show, video…)”. Brows, on the other hand, are out of the question, just Anastasia Beverly Hills Fine Tip Natural Pencil and Clear Fixing Gel (Benefit). Just like a simple touch of black mascara to accentuate her big lashes.

For lips, the singer likes nude, “which for her is ultimately sexier than a red or brown mouth. That’s not his style.” So the make-up artist often works on a beautiful mouth, lined with a matte texture or a nude or rosewood color (especially from Charlotte Tilbury’s Pillow Talk range) to emphasize her lips. “But Carla also likes to use a simple moisturizer during the day or Clarins lip oil.” Furthermore, the creator of Sentara Holistic specifies: Nicolas Sarkozy’s wife wears very little makeup every day. It just relies on good hydration or a good looking flash effect. “It must be said that she has naturally beautiful skin. It only takes a few touches on the top of the cheekbones to emphasize her facial structure.”

And to enhance her complexion, she slathers on balms like Sisley or Dior on both her lips and cheeks. Among Mayia’s must-haves, a highlighter that’s not too shiny and, above all, not shiny. “I also use Sisley’s Phyto-Touche Gel Irisé, a touch of Nars blush or the classic Guerlain Terracotta,” always aiming to wake up the complexion without going overboard. Among Carla Bruni-Sarkozy’s references are also liquids and foundations from the brand Westman Atelier, but also from Armani “when more coverage is needed”.

Mask massage

And when it comes to the makeup artist’s little extra that makes the difference, the answer is simple. a good massage beforehand for a real draining effect. “It is a real ritual. I start by massaging and moisturizing my face. With gestures that come from the inside out and up to the neck. Among Maia’s favorites for applying this gesture is Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream. “Carla is also a big fan of Tata Harper’s pretty neutral creams and face oil.” And when the expert has time, she also uses gua sha and rose quartz to really stimulate the skin and give the skin elasticity. “These tools, like mushrooms, will really make a difference in the eye area. It should not be forgotten that it is the appearance that makes you look tired. And often hydration is in question. therefore it is necessary to restore this area by massaging the acupuncture points. So we get less colored dark circles, refreshed skin and a younger look. Makeup artists also use patches for their moisturizing effect. Some of her favorites are Talika, Patchology or even Klorane… “I like the hydrogel side because I think it hydrates more than paper. I also occasionally pick them up with CBD.”

This exuding massage has another advantage. “With makeup, I also had the ability to blend in with other people’s energy. And that means a lot to me. That’s why I always start with a massage to help the person decompress. And with personalities, my goal is to help them get rid of the heaviness, the stress, to put them back together. Upstream is very important to achieve a more vibrant beauty.’
