Natural hair, long lashes, effortless fashion-we’re all in love with the modern French woman. Refined yet comfortable, the French woman is ready to take on the day in style, from grabbing a coffee and croissant to hitting the town and exploring all the coolest spots. Here are our top tips for incorporating the French Woman’s “je ne sais quoi” into your everyday look.
Focus on one feature
When it comes to makeup, be a makeup minimalist. French women love to accent one facet of their complexion, such as the eyes with some colorful eye shadow. They’re also comfortable in their own skin- bare skin with a hint of mascara and lip color showcases your self-confidence.

Keep your perfume subtle
Fragrance is one of the most important aspects of a French woman- but make sure to not overdo it. Perfume should be discreet, and we recommend spraying it around the neck and on the wrists. French women are also extremely faithful to one fragrance. Once you find one you like, stick with it!

Paris. In the times we’re living in, it’s crucial to avoid touching your face and wash your hands whenever you can. It’s the easiest way to avoid pesky acne and keep yourself healthy.

Spend time away from your hairbrush
We understand that different climates may cause your hair to act up. Rather than try to tame your mane, let your hair do its thing! After your next shower, try to go a day without touching your hairbrush. Who knows, you may wake up with those quintessentially-French natural waves.
