YSL Beauté UK’s Makeup Ambassador Isamaya Ffrench revealed the results of a culinary project she has been working on at a dinner held in East London’s Bistrotheque loft-restaurant last week.

WWD reported that the culinary cosmetics project, named Ffrench Pharmaceuticals, was concocted by the 25-year-old Chelsea College of Art graduate and make-up artist, in partnership with the restaurant’s owners Pablo Flack and David Waddington.

Ffrench’s passion for the culinary world is thought to have inspired the project; she trained as a chef five years ago. Ffrench is reported by WWD to have said: “I’ve always loved cooking, and when I started speaking to Bistrotheque we came up with the idea of culinary cosmetics and also packaging everything to look like pharmaceuticals, because people are so obsessed with taking medicine and supplements or having Botox these days.”
