Audrey Tautou embodies modern French beautyâ€”simple, chic and elegant. French celebrities like Vanessa Paradis and Carla Bruni are also good examples of beauty Francaiseâ€”brunette hair, high cheekbones and thin but well-shaped lips are common French features. Even if you are not French, you too can try out this easy makeup that will leave you looking and feeling trÃ¨s chic. Hereâ€™s how:
French women are masters of the au naturel look. If you must wear makeup, choose natural shades to give that â€œbarely thereâ€ appearance.
In this photo, Audrey is wearing a light nude eye shadow and light mascara on the top lash lineâ€”thatâ€™s it. If this feels too bare for you, add a light coating of mascara to the bottom lash line as well.
Her lips have a subtle berry tone that looks natural but not too nude. Try a lip stain instead of a lip gloss or lipstick to get these flushed-looking lips.
If you want to add some color to your cheeks, use a very light berry pink to match your lips and give you fresh, rosy cheek. Apply it just under the cheekbone to subtly sculpt and define your face.
Finally, donâ€™t forget to top it all off with glossy, loose locks that never look too done up. Thatâ€™s how the French roll.
