Not only do French girls look effortlessly fabulous but they never look overdone. You don’t see French girls walking around in full Instagram makeup, or Kardashian makeup the way you do in the states – they would find that incredibly gauche. Instead they look casually gorgeous. Nothing too perfect, they don’t look like they are trying too hard.
Here is the 411 on how to channel your inner French girl. (This post contains affiliate links)
Don’t bother with concealer. A little reality under the eyes is refreshing.
No heavy foundation. French girls like to see and feel skin instead of thick, caked on foundation. Find a light formula like Makeup Forever’s Water Blend Face and Body Foundation or a BB cream to subtly even out your skin.

Subtle Brows. I have yet to see a single set of Instagram eyebrows on a French girl! Use a good pencil like Charlotte Tilbury’s Brow Lift
and gently create a soft brow. Another alternative is to use a colored brow gel.
Work your lashes. Lashes are enhanced but not caked on. Get a great mascara like Clarins Supra Volume Mascara from Bloomingdales.com, and build out a good thick fringe of lashes.
Add a little liner and you are good to go.

A red lip. Maybe it’s a little clichéd but why not rock a bold red lip? I probably see more French girls sporting soft, glistening yet barely there glosses than big red lips, but why not own the town in Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips in Carina’s Love?

A striped T. I’ve never met a stripe I didn’t love. Your inner French girl is craving the ultimate Parisienne-chic striped tee, and you can find it at Kule.com where the t-shirts are fashionably cut, the fabrics are beautiful, the stripes are perfect, and the look is quintessentially french!

Throw and Go Hair.

French girls look so perfect by not being perfect! Hair that is slightly mussed, that looks a little thrown together is perfectly Parisienne. The cut is always perfection, the color is subtle but gorgeous – no platinum blondes or trashy Barbie blondes.
Think Clemence Poesy instead of Pamela Anderson.
