This fall, we’re inspired by French women and their fuss-free approach to beauty. Their secret? It’s all about balance and simplicity.
Rouge in Paris
Parisian women are all about the classic red lip. Be it a crimson red or a cardinal red, red lipstick is applied like a fashion accessory, and usually no other makeup is worn with it. That is the French way. That’s not all – the hair has to be messy, and the skin has to look absolutely perfect. For a flawless complexion, apply a mattifying primer onto the centre of your face to create a smooth base for your foundation. Take time to conceal any spots and blemishes and set it all in place with a translucent powder. For the ultimate red pout, line your lips with a lip liner before topping it off with a strong coat of creamy red lipstick. If you really can’t go without a flush of colour on the cheeks, simply double up your lipstick as a blusher.
