Catherine Deneuve was interviewed recently for The Top Shelf, a fabulous beauty segment on Into The Gloss.
Deneuve spoke candidly about her beauty regime,
“Image is always something that I’ve been aware of. Even before I was acting, as a young girl with sisters and a father who always took photos, we were aware of our physical appearance—makeup came later. We were raised in the country and always very careful of the sun. My mother told us it wasn’t very good for skin and so I protected my face very much. I’m quite pleased, too, because after so many years, my skin is still in a good shape. My mother, too…she’s 105. She’s incredible. She was an actress too, but on stage. I’m sure that training helped her learn how to take care of her skin.
I still work quite a lot and I find I really need some air, especially on weekends, so it’s nice to go back to the country and be close to the water. Obviously I dress differently when I’m working or in public, but my makeup is pretty much the same even in the country. Maybe I don’t wear a red lip, but I’ll still do my eyebrows and wear something on my lips. And always perfume. It’s something that’s really a part of me.”
Her thoughts on fragrance resonated; I think this was my favourite idea of hers,
“When I start a film, I like to have a special fragrance to wear for it. So, I’m starting a film tomorrow and I’m going to wear Frederic Malle’s Eau de Magnolia—I like it because with every perfume, he works with a different person to do something special. After the film, I keep the perfume, and when I wear it I remember the experience.”
