Calvi on the Rocks 2013 - Hot sun, happy people, blue sea. July 25, 2013 : Make Up For Ever Calvi

For the first year, MAKE UP FOR EVER was the official sponsor of Calvi Festival in Corsica. Our photographer Alexander was there and tells us how it was.

I suddenly felt something moving under my foot. A small crab scared me and made me fell over backwards into the water... With my camera!

July 25, 2013 : Make Up For Ever Calvi

For the first year, MAKE UP FOR EVER was the official sponsor of Calvi Festival in Corsica. Our photographer Alexander was there and tells us how it was.

I suddenly felt something moving under my foot. A small crab scared me and made me fell over backwards into the water... With my camera!

Add a mix of music, a subtle dose of creative makeup, and shake all the ingredients. You just got get the recipe of this unique cocktail from Corsica called: Calvi on the Rocks.

I tasted it, and literally plunged into it!

The small town of Calvi was the place to be early July. Music lovers, hipsters, fashionistas, celebrities, artists, all mixed up on the beach to the sound of the DJs facing the sea.
Our makeup artists made hundreds of festival goers looks and then feel more into the party, and I was there to take some pictures of our team and what the Festival was like.

I think the best pictures I made in Calvi on the Rocks will remain unseen, locked in one of my two cameras!

As I was stepping back to get a wider view of the scene - In Casa beach with our makeup stations surrounded by people partying and dancing - I suddenly felt something moving under my foot.  A small crab scared me and made me fell over backwards into the water... With my camera!
I was soaked to skin.

Once dry, the 36-exposure film inside my vintage camera got stuck by the salt of the water. I lost all my pictures!

Luckily, I took more precaution with the second camera and brought a lot of pictures to show how MAKE UP FOR EVER rocks in Calvi!
