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!
