Instagrammers Capture the Château de Versailles
Want to see more real-time photos and videos of Versailles? Be sure to visit the Château de Versailles location page.
Just southwest of Paris, France, lies the Château de Versailles—one of the world’s most famous palaces. Versailles is known not just for its lavish decor and architecture, but also as a historic symbol for the country. The court of Versailles was the center of political power in France starting when Louis XIV moved there from Paris in 1682. In October 1789, the royal family was forced to leave Versailles when a mob of mostly female revolutionaries stormed the palace and essentially evicted Louis XVI and his queen, Marie-Antoinette.
The Château now serves as a museum and one of France’s biggest tourist attractions, with more than three million people visiting the grounds each year. Today, Versailles had a special visit from the Tour de France (@letourdefrance), which began its final day at the palace en route to the finish line tonight along the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris.

"Beauty Q&A: 26 March 2013 (Liquid Liners, highlighters, brushes, my camera, and peeling skin!)"
What is a good, fairly cheap highlighter? Liquid, cream or powder I dont mind. I just want to find something that will give a nice glow to my cheekbones but isnt too expensive. Is the benefit highbeam good? I was looking for something slightly cheaper.. thanks
There is always MAC’s Strobe cream! I find you get so little product with highbeam, though it’s a very good product, and for women of color, you need something a little less silvery for highlights.
The other cheap trick is to find a loose powder shadow in a soft peachy-pink or champagne shade and just add that to a lotion to make your own! As long as you don’t choose a shadow that is glitter or sparkly, it should look great.
do you have a youtube channel?
No, I’m afraid not! But I’ll definitely do it if time and situation allows in future!
