French President Emmanuel Macron has spent €26,000 (£23,900) on makeup and beauty costs in his first three months in power.
Mr Macron’s office confirmed a report on his beauty spending published by French news magazine Le Point, but said it was looking into a cheaper alternative.
The report said costs included the pay for a freelance makeup artist for television appearances and trips abroad.
But it is not the first time the hair and makeup bill for a French head of state has raised eyebrows.
In 2016, it was reported that Macron’s predecessor Francois Hollande had a hairdresser on contract for €10,000 a month.
The figure was later confirmed by a government spokesman, who said: "Everyone has their hair done, don’t they?"
It prompted the hashtag #CoiffeurGate to trend on Twitter – coiffeur being the French word for hairdresser.
Mr Macron, 39, became France’s youngest ever president in May after beating far-right candidate Marine Le Pen in the country’s election.
With youth on his side, the reason behind his expensive makeup habit remains unclear.
Maybe he’s born with it – but is he worth it?
