Three words: French. Girl. Beauty.

French women are famous for their elegant nonchalance, and how this translates into their beauty regimes is even more enchanting. It’s appeal is all in adopting a less is more approach – that’s what gives off the “je ne sais quoi” cool-girl attitude. A classic french girl beauty look is composed of a smudged smokey eye, matte red lips, glowing, fresh skin with just a hint of blush.

Mecca lets us in on how to create the perfect Parisienne-inspired beauty look using cult-fave products:

  1. “Create an ‘I woke up like this’ base with the NARS X Charlotte Gainsbourg Hydrating Glow Tint.”
  2. “Conceal any redness or under-eye circles with the Chantecaille Le Camouflage Stylo.”
  3. “Add a touch of au naturel highlight by dabbing a small amount of Rodin Lip Balm to the centre of the eyelids and cheekbones for a subtle, glossy finish that excudes effortless cool.”
  4. “For the evening, nail the Parisienne canvas by flaunting a smudged smokey eye and bold red lip. Line the top and bottom lashline with the By Terry Kohl Terrybly in Brown Stellar, and pair with the matte NARS Velvet Matte Pencil in Cruella to strike a balance between undone and seriously chic.”
