Sacré bleu! It has just been revealed that French President Emmanuel Macron has already spent the equivalent of almost $31,000 (€26,000) on makeup during his first 3 months in office!
I don’t think I could spend $30K on makeup in my entire lifetime! What the heck is he doing, creating an entirely different face?!
The UK Telegraph reports:
In potentially damaging news for the 39-year old centrist leader, whose popularity is waning, Le Point reported that his personal makeup artist – referred to only as Natacha M – put in two bills, one for €10,000 and another for €16,000.
The Elysee Palace defended the high fee saying: “We called in a contracter as a matter of urgency”. The same makeup artist also applied foundation to Mr Macron during his presidential campaign. Aides said that spending on makeup would be “significantly reduced”.
LOL! My favorite part is that they said the makeup application was “a matter of urgency!”
Apparently, spending a fortune on makeup is quite common for French presidents. Former President François Hollande’s makeup costs came in at $35,600 per quarter and Nicolas Sarkozy totaled $28,500 per quarter.
Reminds me of an American pretty boy, he of the $1,250 haircut, who also happened to marry an older woman – former vice presidential candidate John Edwards.
All of this is way more than a man should ever spend on hair and makeup!
