Make Up For Ever is feeling the spring fever, and it’s in the shape of gingham packaging and sweet pastel and bright colors. The Tres Vichy Collection is inspired by the iconic dress of Brigitte Bardot worn on her wedding with the beloved French actor Jacques Charrier. The actress sported a ‘Vichy’ dress, which — naturally– rocked the inspirational boat of Danny Sanz.
