You know the classic “French makeup look.” You’ve found your go-to Chanel shade of red lipstick and your favorite Dior mascara. You’ve been bombarded with women’s magazine articles on the importance of creams, moisturizers, and lotions.
Time to switch it up a bit. Why not learn how to do your makeup from an actual French supermodel? Cindy Bruna’s on deck over at Vogue to show you how to do a going out look à la parisienne. As to be expected, Bruna begins with three different methods of moisturizing—a face mist, a serum, and an oil. But why would you be surprised? The French love affair with creams is what got you cosmetics companies like Chanel and Dior in the first place.
Moving on, you’ll learn how to get a great smoky eye and contours that don’t look like you were aiming for a sugar skull. And what’s great about Bruna’s tips is that, as a model, the emphasis is on what photographs well, not just what’s acceptable after three cocktails in a dark club. So don’t forget to take a lot of selfies!
