Like everything else French women do, their makeup looks are effortlessly cool; simple yet chic. It’s a look that gives off a “I woke up like this” vibe which is a look everyone would love to perfect. First step, use less makeup and instead focus on emphasizing your natural features. To do this, you must start by having a healthy skin care routine to get that French girl glow.
Patrick de Fontbrune, a celebrity makeup artist in LA, says that “French women understand a glowing healthy skin is essential to their beauty regimen. With makeup, the goal is to achieve their best possible self, rather than transforming themselves into a make-believe version of themselves.”
He recommends the following:
Caudalie Beauty Elixir: a hydrating mist to use under moisturizer
Sisley Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream: to moisturize, lightweight and revitalizing
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse: essential oil perfect for skin and hair
Blush is a French woman’s favorite throughout every season. While powdered blushes work too, French women prefer a cream blush because it is more natural looking. Here are some of our favorites:
The Kitten Eye
This fall we are moving away from a more bold cat eye and transitioning to a more minimal look: the kitten eye. If you are getting ready for a night out or just want to add a little spice to your minimal makeup routine, this is the look for you.
French women often use a lash conditioner as lashes are a crucial part of their makeup routine. Add a little mascara and you’ve got yourself some lush lashes!
Bold with the Lips
A classic French girl look; bold lips. This pop of color will accentuate any simple makeup look. Take a look at our favorite lipsticks:
