Embrace your inner Parisian and pull off that beautiful look, with these rather effortless tips.
1. Let Your Hair Breathe
Fight every bone in your body to grab those irons, blow dryers and even that urge to brush your hair. When going for that French look, you want to go for that unrefined, lived in look.
Allow your hair to dry naturally through the air, without the use of a towel or blow dryers. Also, make sure not to wash your hair every day either. That will help your hair maintain more of its essential oils, giving it that healthy shine to it.
2. Ditch The Makeup
The key to the look of the Parisian lifestyle is going fully natural, with the use of very little to no makeup. To achieve this, you’re going to want to make sure that you take care of your skin to the best of your ability, giving it that healthy look. Look out for products like rosehip oils, which can be essential to maintaining that beautiful glow.
3. Take A Relaxing Soak In The Tub
In western culture, we have the mentality of hopping in and out of the shower for a quick rinse, with no time to relax and unwind after the stress of everyday life. So lay back, light a candle, and relax in the tub with some of your favorite music. Your body and mind will thank you.
4. Emphasize Your Lips
There is always an exception to the rules, and in the case of trying to apply as little makeup as possible, you’re going to want to apply most of it on your lips. When unsure of what kind of shade you’re going for, try out the classic red, where you can never go wrong. A staple for women in France, and it’s a classic for a reason.
5. Embrace Fragrances
Smelling great and using fragrances shouldn’t be a thing reserved only for those special occasions, apply them to your clothes and body at every opportunity. With that being said, don’t overdo it with the amount of fragrance you use, and try to find fragrances that blend well together, such as in your shower gels, hair products, and perfumes.
