Ever since he became France’s youngest modern president in May French President Emmanuel Macron, his office has spent 26,000 euros, or $31,000, for a makeup artist to be at the ready for his public appearances.

The Élysée Palace, the French president’s office, confirmed on Friday a report the day before in the magazine Le Point that said two bills, one for €10,000 and another for €16,000, had been sent to the palace for services provided by a makeup artist for Mr. Macron according to Newyork Times report.

Officials told Francetvinfo that the charges were for “external services that took place in the recent months and that were suited to the moment’s urgency.”

Those moments, according to the president’s office, included “press conferences and visits abroad,” which apparently required a beautician to travel with Mr. Macron to promptly apply powder, toner and other cosmetics.

The Palace insisted that future makeup bills would be significantly reduced. “The sum covers various services including press conferences and foreign trips where the person concerned has to travel with him,” an unidentified Palace official told journalists, according to The Guardian.
