Step 1: Moisturise and nourish the skin
It all starts with healthy, hydrated skin. An effective, nourishing face cream is, therefore, the base of this look. The La Creme by Le Domaine is perfect for creating a smooth base. This moisturiser nourishes and soothes and provides the skin with a rested look. In addition, Le Domaine is a French brand, and its ingredients are 96 - 98% of natural origin.
Step 2: Make sure you have a radiant base
To make skin look even more radiant, Laura Mercier's Pure Canvas Primer - Illuminating is the perfect addition. This primer contains light-reflecting particles that help skin glow and look bright and healthy. In addition, it improves the texture of the skin, making the rest of your make-up look even better.
Step 3: Create natural coverage
The Parisienne style usually includes a natural skin tone. Therefore, when it comes to foundation, the key to success is to go for a light to medium coverage that looks like a second skin. As a foundation, Westman Atelier's Vital Skincare Complexion Drops is therefore an excellent choice. This foundation is light-covering while giving care to the skin. Choose a shade close to your natural skin tone to avoid hard lines and patches. Apply the foundation with a light hand or sponge, and the result is a natural, healthy look.
Step 4: Correct any imperfections
For concealer, we use the Concealer by Ellis Faas. This caring concealer can be blended into the skin with your fingers for natural-looking coverage. The formula makes dark circles and blemishes disappear, and makes the skin look fresher. The purpose of this concealer is meant to correct any imperfections, such as dark circles, redness or red spots. Go for a shade one or two shades lighter than your foundation to create a brightening effect.
Step 5: A subtle, sun-kissed look
To give the face a subtle sun-kissed look, apply NARS' Bronzing Cream Laguna. Cream bronzers provide a natural, dewy finish that suits the Parisienne style. Unlike powder bronzers, which can sometimes be too obvious or streaky, this formula can be gently blended to create a subtle, natural effect.
Step 6: Use a versatile blush stick
For a sparkling pop of colour on the cheeks, use the Baby Cheeks Blush Stick in Dou Dou from Westman Atelier. This cream blush adds a pretty, pink colour to the cheeks for a healthy, youthful blush. This handy blush in stick format can be used not only to highlight the cheeks, but also as an eyeshadow or lip colour. This makes it perfect for the Parisienne's versatile and creative style.
Step 7: Groom the eyebrows
Eyebrows are shaped and nourished at the same time with the Eyebrow Serum Gel Transparent from La Bouche Rouge, Paris. This gel keeps brows in place and makes them look natural. Groomed eyebrows give eyes a lift and a more open look. Using only an eyebrow gel to shape the brows keeps the focus on the eyes and subtly emphasises the brows.
Step 8: Lengthen and define the lashes
For the mascara, we use the Mascara with fine leather sleeve Blue by La Bouche Rouge, Paris. This stylish mascara has a blue leather sleeve, making it a stylish, timeless accessory in your handbag at the same time. A mascara is an essential step, as it defines the lashes and opens the eyes, creating a subtle yet dramatic look. In addition, the formula of this mascara ensures full and long lashes.
Step 9: A statement red lip
Last but not least, the lips. No Parisienne look is complete without a bold, precise red lip. The Lipstick Satin in the shade Subtropical by Byredo Make-Up is perfect for this. This lipstick provides lips with a rich, intense red colour, and its silky-smooth finish feels comfortable on the lips. Besides, the stylish silver design of this lipstick is a real eye-catcher.
