I don’t know about you, but the first thing that comes to my mind when someone mentions French women is definitely their flawless skin and timeless chic. Even though it may seem so, neither of these is effortless – each one requires work and care. If you are intrigued by their beauty and style, too, stay with me. Here are some of their secrets that can be very useful for every modern woman, no matter French or not. Enjoy!

   1.     Stick to a Skincare Routine that Works

French girls know it all – their mothers introduce them to a skincare regimen from an early age. A gentle scrub, cleanser, toner, moisturizer and eye cream, and voila – flawless look is there!  Establishing basic skincare steps by your early twenties is essential, as well as not switching brands too often. Remember that high-quality products are a must-have if you want to achieve impeccable French beauty.

     2.     Have Two Lipsticks Only

Don’t be compulsive when buying lipsticks – you definitely don’t need all the shades out there. Be wise shopper and choose only two of them. The first one should be a statement red, the one that will emphasize the whiteness of your teeth. As for the second one, pick a nude. Both of these work perfectly with either glamorous or casual outfits. Check out what Chanel has to offer – their timeless lipsticks are indeed a true inspiration.

   3.     The Effort Is Always Worth It!

French women have never heard of bad-hair days or feeling-fat days. Wanna know why? Well, these outfits often make you look even worse – no matter how fat you feel, wearing a huge caftan or poncho won’t help you. These will make you look 5 times bigger. Slip in your favorite jeans instead and combine them with a neutral shirt and a cute little cardigan. Heels are, of course, inevitable. You will definitely look fabulous!

    4.     Pamper Your Face and Body

French women know that pampering starts with the face, and what is better than the good old vitamin C cream? Such a treat stimulates production of collagen, thus making your skin much firmer and younger-looking. Needless to mention, face care should always be extended down to your décolletage. Besides that, bodycare regimen is also crucial to these ladies, especially lotions that fight cellulite and circulation-boosting mitts. After all, summer is almost here, and we all know that summer bodies are made in the winter.  

 5.     Eat Like the French

The truth is that French women can hardly get overweight – however, they don’t get super-skinny either. It’s all about the balance. The key to perfect figure is certainly an appropriate amount of everything, even fats. Fromage, smoked salmon, full-fat yoghurt and many other ingredients keep their skin beautiful and youthful.  Besides that, red wine is among the most famous antioxidants in the world 

– so feel free to have at least one glass of it once a week. If not for anything else, then for the sake of your beauty!

Parisienne style is definitely timeless, yet extremely contemporary. What is most fabulous about French women is the fact that they are always trendy, without trying to follow trends. They have perfected their personal style to the tiniest detail, which makes them irreplaceable in both fashion and beauty industries. So, what do you think about the whole “a la Parisienne” craze?

  11. Beautiful tips, thx for sharing.

  12. Lovely post.

  13. These are great tips. I think people tend to overbuy lipsticks and makeup in general so I think having a rule of having only a few shades is great. I agree that a balanced diet is very important, but I think living a little and enjoying life is also very important.

  14. These are quite inspiring. I always admire French women and their beauty, and now I know it all comes with the effort and work. I'm not sure if I could do #2 though, having 2 lipsticks is hard, I don't think I could control myself hehe
