1. We will meet at a café (please think to bring money for a cup of coffee/tea) to discuss your current beauty routine, what you would like to improve and your budget. I will teach you how to build a skincare routine and how to pick colors that compliment your complexion. 2. Once we have set the intent for the shopping trip (you won't necessarily need to buy anything), we will first head out to a small boutique offering a nice selection of higher-end skincare. 3. We will then visit the world's first modern department store, appreciate the architecture and do some shopping! 4. Then, we will visit the motherland of beauty shopping - Sephora. 5. Then, we will visit the cheapest pharmacy in Paris dedicated to skincare and stock up on the essentials for your routine. 6. Lastly, I will show you a great boutique to pick up a unique (and not expensive) fragrance made in the south of France! I will give you an information sheet with all the basic knowledge needed to navigate the beauty world and personalized recommendations. Walking from location to location will take maximum 40 minutes of our time, maximum 10 minutes at the time. You are encouraged to use this time to ask me any questions.
I am a beauty enthusiast with a PhD in materials science. I have been learning about cosmetics ingredients and how to build a skincare routine since 2013. I am passionate about the world of beauty and realize that it can be a very confusing world to navigate. My goal is to give you a fun shopping experience within your budget and to distinguish over-claimed marketing from scientific knowledge of what a product can do.
