By Sewe Ishola,
French President Emmanuel Macron has come under fire for spending a small fortune on makeup.
After his office confirmed a report that he spent €26,000 euros (11028200.17 Naira) on makeup during his first three months in power, harsh criticisms followed on social media.
The report in Le Point news magazine said the cost includes the pay of a freelance makeup artist following Macron during television appearances and trips abroad.
Macron’s office confirmed the amount on Friday. The report comes at a bad time for Macron, with polls showing his popularity plunging in recent weeks following the announcement of budget cuts and divisive labor reform.
Le Point said Macron’s makeup expenses were lower than those of predecessor Francois Hollande, who paid a full-time employee about €10,000 euros monthly.
