French style, French kiss, French perfume, French chic: we consider the image of a Parisian a model of sophistication, elegance, romance and sophistication. How do they do it? Write down the secrets of French women.
1. They take care of the skin
First of all, they don't tan or wear bronzers. Dark skin adds at least five years to you: Parisian women learn this rule with their mother's milk. Of course, it cannot do without exceptions, but out of 10 Parisians, 9 have natural, even slightly pale skin. At the same time, very well-groomed! According to statistics, the most popular procedures in Parisian beauty salons are peeling, cleansing and moisturizing. The second three are facial massage, anti-aging treatments and regenerating nourishing masks.
2. They don't overuse makeup
Macara, a bit of blush and a neutral lipstick is all the French woman wears in her daily life. Foundation and powder, shadows, eyeliners, and even more so arrows and bright lipstick are considered attributes of evening or festive makeup (for example, wedding), coming “in full dress” to the office or meeting with friends is strange, inappropriate and is considered a sign bad tone. Something to think about!
3. They don't like contouring
No matter how many ways to sculpt the face, leading makeup artists, French women ignore these tips. Because it's unnatural! The most sophisticated apply highlighter on the cheekbones and in the hollow of the upper lip. Everyone!
4. They do not matte the skin
He althy skin is a little shiny. It's normal, it's natural and it's beautiful. Powder once an hour to look like a floured doll? Just not French. She values her beauty too much.
5. They know a lot about negligence
A true Frenchwoman will never allow anyone to say or think: "She tried very hard" when looking at her. The shade of blush will never match the color of nail polish, the handbag will never match the color of shoes, the hairstyle will never be perfect, and the jacket or dress will never match the figure. A scarf carelessly thrown around the neck, strands that have come out of the bun, a flying cardigan over office trousers - and this is always charming. Here it is, the French secret to great looks.
6. They always wear red lipstick
Any look turns into a festive one if you make up your lips red. Ripped jeans, a t-shirt with a funny print, a mix of jewelry around the neck or a floor-length dress, Greek sandals and a wide-brimmed hat - no matter what your style is. Add red lipstick and you're a queen, say Parisians.
7. They go to expensive hairdressers
The secret of real French women: “You can buy the coolest piece for 5 euros and no one will guess its cost if it fits well and fits into your style. But cheap haircuts and cheap coloring are always visible. Is always!" And don't style your hair, a good haircut lies on its own. Keep them he althy and shiny.
8. They don't like hair accessories
Hairpins, ribbons, decorative elastic bands, "crabs", headbands and other decorations reduce the cost of the look, say Parisians. All these devices have a task: to fix the tail or bun, to collect the hair in a knot or to lift the bangs, you should not refuse them, but the more inconspicuous they are, the better.
9. They always wear perfume
And each has at least a dozen fragrances: for the mood, for the situation, for special occasions, for every day, bought in a fit of madness and as a memory of a vacation. French women wear perfume as dresses or shoes, and leaving the house without adding the scent of the day to their appearance is like leaving the house naked.
10. They fanatically protect themselves from the sun
Despite the fact that Paris is not a city of southern latitudes, moisturizing face creams with an SPF of 50+ are considered the most popular skin care products there. At the same time, on sunny days, the matter will not end with one cream: the Frenchwoman will put on a long-sleeved cotton blouse, a hat with huge brim, and the most zealous guardians of he alth and youthful skin will also take a special umbrella that protects against ultraviolet radiation. It's hard for us northerners to come to terms with this, but let's already face the fact that the sun ages, ages, ages the skin!
