how to look french this summer
French woman have long been revered as style icons. We strive to achieve their chic, messy and unapologetic natural beauty. They set the style (and clear skin) standards for women throughout the world and their effortless look has continually remained timeless.
A French look starts with smooth, clear skin. An au naturel face is the Parisian woman’s holy grail and summer is the perfect time to execute this look. The Regenerating Cleanser works as a gentle exfoliant to polish and prep skin for the intake of vital nutrients in the coming steps. Before washing off the Regenerating Cleanser, layer on the Resurfacing Mask for a quick 5 min, no downtime, Glow Getter facial. After 5 minutes, rinse off the products and you’ll have an instant glow!
Hydration is key in achieving this look and necessary for healthy and glowing radiance. Spray Hydrating Floral Essence all over your face and neck in order to drench skin. While skin is still wet, layer on the Rejuvenating Serum and massage into skin. If you have a jade roller, use that to push the product even deeper. Don’t forget to drink tons of water throughout the day as well! This will really keep your skin plump and hydrated from the inside, out.
To lock in moisture, finish off with the Rebuilding Moisturizer and Illuminating Eye Creme. The Rebuilding Moisturizer will give you a matte finish, while the Illuminating Eye Creme will hide dark circles. It will brighten up the eye area and give a slight highlight to your cheekbones. You can also add the Very Highlighting luminizer to the top of your cheekbones, brow bone, inside corner of the eye and cupid’s bow, for added dimension. The final step is a flushed cheek and a classic Parisian red lip. Our Lip and Cheek Tint in Very Naughty will provide a ruby red pout that French girls swear by, while a more pink shade such as Very Charming, will add just enough of a natural flush to the cheeks.
When tying the total look together, keep hair natural, preferably air-dried for more of a ‘bed head’ feel. Everything should look effortless and chic. Keep outfit simple and streamlined - all black, or a flowly summer dress paired with sandals. Top everything off with a few spritz of perfume, some cool sunnies, and voilà - an easy French girl routine.
