[Ed. – To be fair, that seems to be in line with what Francois Hollande spent per quarter on hair and makeup combined. Of course, Hollande wasn’t affecting to be a Roman god. Exit point: I actually bet Marine LePen would not be spending that much.]
French President Emmanuel Macron spent €26,000 on makeup in his first three months as leader of the country, Le Point magazine reported Thursday.
According to the report, Macron’s personal makeup artist put in two claims for payment, one for €10,000 and another for €16,000, for doing his makeup during his travels and ahead of press conferences.
The Elysée Palace said in response: “We called in a contractor as a matter of urgency.”
Aides said that spending on makeup would be “significantly reduced” in future, Le Point reported, adding that the amount spent is less than under Macron’s predecessors.
