French President Emmanuel Macron's office says it won't spend as much on makeup after spending about $31,000 in a few months.
Maybe he's born with it. Maybe it's over $30,000 of taxpayer money.
French President Emmanuel Macron has been in office for three months, and Le Point magazine reports his personal makeup artist has charged the government around $31,000 during that time.
Macron's office says his makeup costs will be reduced in coming quarters. The pricey figure came as a "matter of urgency," which seems a bit insulting to Macron's complexion.
Recent French presidents haven't skimped on their beauty regimens — Nicolas Sarkozy's makeup cost more than $28,000 per quarter, and François Hollande's cost over $35,000 every three months.
