10 Tips for French-Inspired Hair & Makeup Looks
French style is quite enviable and aspirational – particularly, the ever-so-sexy Parisian style. Clothing and confidence aside, there are a few other avenues down which to venture if you’re in hot pursuit of a French-inspired look. And both these roads can be found from the neck up: Your face and your hair.   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Gabrielle Caunesil Pozzoli (@gabriellecaunesil) on Oct 10, 2019 at 3:26am PDT 1. The smoky eye The French are known for their confidence in, and mastery of, the art of romance, allure, and sex appeal. And nothing speaks to all these things, makeup-wise, like the sultry smoky eye. Grab your black eyeliner, a dark shadow, some high-quality mascara, and get to work on those peepers before your next big night out.

    I agree that these days there really isn't much difference with French women on the world stage. Everything's become so casual. BUT there is a studied nonchalance seen on the street that must stem from inner confidence. Whether French woman are as stylish as the women in Anne's article or not - French women do care how they look when they leave home. It's all part of the French aesthetic.

    Sorry but these articles make me laugh. I’ve been to Paris many many times. The people I see around the city and provincial towns look no different to woman in other cities around the world. I’ve rarely seen people looking like the woman in these photos. 🤷‍♀️ Clothing goes from a A- Z RANGE , but generally very casual. Once, and once only , I remember seeing a very chic woman in the 16th .... she looked fabulous, but no different from chic woman anywhere in the world.
