The French government has responded to the article saying, "we called in a contractor as a matter of urgency. Spending on makeup would be 'significantly reduced' in future."

Le Point also reported the amount spent by Macron's predecessors on makeups during the same three months period.

His immediate predecessor,François Hollande, spent €30,000 per quarter on makeup, including the salary of a makeup artist.

Mr Hollande also paid his hairdresser a gross salary of €9,895 a month.

Nicolas Sarkozy spent slightly less on his makeup than Macron €8,000 a month.
