My favourites for a quick make-up look, inspired by the French girls

Say, how often and how heavy do you put on make-up normally? To be honest, I tend to wear less and less make-up on a daily basis. This might be because of my incredible laziness or because of my growing age, but it’s quite a nice development to be feeling quite happy with no make-up on, even when I’m outside and among people.

By the way, a couple of years ago, this would have been unthinkable. When I was around 25 and lived in Berlin, I was wearing heavy make-up on a daily basis. I would feel bad going outside with only mascara on and going out without any make-up was nearly impossible. But I find it very fascinating to see how quickly these kind of things can change.

Now, with me being almost 32, I feel it’s enough to put make-up on for “special” occasions like meetings, parties, events or photo shoots. And even for these kind of occasions, I like to put on VERY little.

My 10 minute make-up look à la Parisienne

In order to show you how to create a beautiful, easy and very Parisienne kind of make-up look in just under 10 minutes, I brought along my favorite products today in order to achieve that kind of style.

First of all, I hydrate my skin with my favorite products by Caudalíe that I’m gonna talk a bit more in detail about next week. Afterwards, I’m concealing dark circles under my eyes with my YSL concealer stick*. Then, I’m adding a bit of Lancaster bronzer and put on some Lash Queen Feline Elegance Mascara by Helena Rubinstein*. On my lips, I’m currently always wearing the perfect red lipstick from Rouje, nuance “Jeanne”. Et voilà, that’s my super quick French style make-up look.

How do you like my minimalist choice of make-up products? And what is your main go-to product? The one that you almost always put on? Do let me know in the comments!

    Mir geht es auch so, wobei es bei mir die Faulheit ist. Ich bin oft ungeschminkt und sonst sehr dezent unterwegs. Eine Sache, die ich wirklich liebe, ist transparentes Puder. Zaubert sofort einen schönen Teint ohne zugekleistert auszusehen und man braucht nie auf den Farbton achten…

    Ich trage gerne Mascara und Lippenpflege, damit fühle ich mich gut und das reicht mir für den Alltag. Wenn’s Abends mal weg geht, dann trage ich natürlich auch mal mehr!
