Tom Pecheux’s Best Buds
One might imagine that once you reach the level that Tom Pecheux has in the cosmetic and runway worlds, you could fill your kit with everything and anything—from the most luxe face cream to Q-tips spun from silk. However, he prefers the cotton swabs by Muji. “These are the best things in the world, and every woman should have them,” the face painter gushed about the makeup blunder-erasing buds. And for once, we all can—two hundred of the thin version retail for $3.50, while the standard kind go for $2.25. “They are very firm and very cheap—in terms of price,” he added. And one more little known fact: Pecheux can name nearly every Muji store location from Paris to New York.
