Lise Mailman talended, creative, sophisticated and passionate entrepreneur is giving away a little bit of her everyday life and tips in all simplicity.
Who are you? What’s your background?
I am Lise Mailman, I am a multifunction artist. After my bachelor I took off to San Diego, California, where I learnt English for one year . When I came back to France, I studied communication in Bordeaux then I moved back to my homeland, Les Landes. I went from small job to small to job and I finally found my way, I started graphic design and artictic direction. After 5 years as a AD in the surf industry, I quit everything and created Ruban Collectif with 2 friends, a collective of artists dedicated to weddings. Then came along Bippity Mag, a graphic magazine with a quirky spirit about wedding organization and, the newborn, Burovelvet, our creative communication agency for professionals.
Where are you from? Why did you decide to leave there?
I come from Les Landes, in south of France and I live in Seignosse. I often go to Newport Beach, California, my hunsband’s hometown. We choosed to live here for the quality of life, it is so nice living here…and also, I wouldn’t see myself living elsewhere. The atmosphere is simple and friendly, no frills, everything I love ! We also live near cities like Bordeaux or Biarritz, Spain is near by, the beach is 200m away from my place and we can drive to the mountains in 2h ! What else can you ask for ?
Tell us about your routine and your favorite spots.
I take my son to school then I go to the office. We have set up a co working space in Seignosse with photographers, graphic designers, florists…. It’s very interesting and motivating to be surrounded by such creative people !
Come lunch time and with no hesitation, I go to my friend’s restaurant, Bidonvilla for its famous spring rolls and salmon terriakki !
What is your daily beauty routine? What are your essentials?
My daily routine is simple, a good face wash in the shower every morning and a good hydration. Same thing every night and when I wake up I can feel the difference. My skin feels soft and rested .
In the morning I always use the Daily Mircofoliant by Dermalogca and the Dynamic skin Recovery SPF50.
In the evening I take my make up off and I wash my skin with Rosa Centifolia ™ No.1 Purity Cleansing Balm fromREN Skincare and I apply a rich hydrating cream that makes my skin so soft in the morning : Super Rich repair de Dermalogica (again ! I know !)
During the week I use Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask de REN Skincare.
Do you have a family beauty or cultural secret?
Before a manucure I clean my nails with lemon and then I put a mix of brown sugar and honey on my hands, a natural and soft exfoliator. Guaranted to impress !
How do you relax?
A day at Caudalie in Bordeaux ( well, I don’t go very often but I love it there !). Between care and gastronomy, it’s a real pleasure…. Life in a bathing robe !!
Closer from us, there is San Sebastian … shopping, tapas and vino tinto !
