This fall, we’re inspired by French women and their fuss-free approach to beauty. Their secret? It’s all about balance and simplicity.
Down to Earth
French women appreciate a good messy smokey eye, and usually opt for just one colour with a creamy texture. They tend to steer away from sparkly pigments and application that just seems “too perfect”. To keep things minimal, simply apply a cream-based bronze or brown eyeshadow as a wash of colour all over your eyelids and blend it out onto your crease with a fluffy blending brush. With the little bit of product that’s left on the brush, smudge it all along your lower lashline for some added depth. Run your lashes through with two coats of mascara – don’t worry about clumping, the idea is to keep it looking grungy and lived-in. Keep the rest of your makeup fresh and simple with beige tones and creamy textures.
