It almost seems like an oxymoron to call French Chic Summer Beauty sensible.
But it really is.
There’s a very logical, edited, and precise way that Parisians approach their beauty. It’s all about the ease of effortlessly looking better than natural, with a few savvy secrets thrown in for good measure.
I’ve pulled a few new and timeless French Chic beauté favorites for you to consider adding to your routine this summer. They are all available stateside (just click on their name) so no need to whisk to Paris, but wouldn’t that be divine?
L’Huile De Leonor Greyl - Soin Natural du Cheveu smells so delicious that you’ll want to douse yourself in this lovely oil but it really is a waterproof serum-like formula to protect your hair from the sun and dry split ends. Don’t tell, but I cheat and rub my hands with it. I don’t know if it does anything, but it feels so good. Leonor Greyl is olso one of my favorite French hair care brands.
Orlane Paris Soin Antirides Extrême SPF 30 Anti-Wrinkle Care Sunscreen…. Can I say ‘mais oui’ to sunscreen + anti-wrinkle in the same tube!
Antonym Certified Organic Baked Foundation because it’s too hot to wear liquid and this takes a second to brush on.
Talika Skin Retouch for face, hands, and neck is derived from photo-retouching techniques to instantly light and add a petite anti-aging savoire faire to your skin.
Orlane Paris Aqua Svelte Slimming Scrub with Algae and Sea Salt. I’ll scrub like mad in an effort to be svelte. And this smells so refreshing and energizing while it detoxifies, exfoliates, and fights cellulite while making you feel like you spent a day at the sea. Bliss.
Talika Huile Vitale is a nighttime oil (or no makeup day oil) to restore dehydrated skin. Perfect for after a long flight (to Paris?) or a day in the sun. I’m becoming addicted to this since I swear it puffed out my dehydrated crinkles over night.
