French girl beauty is all about keeping your face makeup light with soft finish products and your lips bright with crisp, bold colors, and since changing up your daily makeup routine is something we encourage you to try often, we have a challenge for you. Instead of reaching for your usual foundation, mascara and eyeliner products, try swapping out your go-tos with these five french-girl items. Who knows — you might just want to embrace the tres-chic beat for good.
Instead of applying a heavy foundation on the daily, try swapping out your current formula with a tinted moisturizer like Skin Feels Good. This foundation is much lighter, has less coverage, and will allow your natural radiance to shine through.
French girls don’t usually sport eyeliner, but when they do, they make it bold. Try switching out your usual gel or pencil with a bright, shimmery shade like Daring Bronze from YSL. This liquid liner will enhance the brightness of your eyes and leave behind the softest sparkle.
Mascara is one product that French girls love an abundance of, so you’ll want to swap your current wand for one that will give you long, lifted lashes like Lash Blowout. We recommend applying only one to two coats of this to keep your lashes looking natural but totally elongated.
A softer blush sans the contour (or bronzer or highlighter, for that matter) is the ultimate French-girl finish to any face routine. Opt for a creamy powder formula like Sweet Cheeks to give a subtle, yet natural flush of color.
Of course, you can’t complete a Frenchgirl inspired routine without a crisp, bold lip color like Wet Vermillion. This water-based stain is extremely lightweight on the lips but gives you a totally breathtaking, very Parisian finish.
