How To: French Style


#MURSWAYTIP French women have that je ne sais quoi that we all admire and crave. They always look effortlessly chic and seem to never get old, just look at Vanessa Paradis or Laetitia Casta, they look as gorgeous as they did on their beginnings. 

ES: Las mujeres francesas tienen ese je ne sais quoi que todas admiramos y queremos. Siempre lucen muy chic y parecen nunca envejecer, sólo miren a Vanessa Paradis o Laetita Casta, están igual de hermosas que en sus comienzos.

Here are ten tips that will help you achieve that desired french style:
1- Do not overdo: French women don't exaggerate in the amount of make-up, accessories or colours they wear so make sure you keep it chic but simple at the same time.
2- Take care of your skin: The part of our body that shows the time-aging the most is definitely the skin, especially our face, that is why it is very important to start taking care of it from a young age. So if you haven't started yet, this is the time to do it. How? Moisturise it, use SPF, drink a lot of water and never, ever, go to sleep with your makeup on.
3- Back to basics: There are some pieces that are considerate basics and a must have in any woman wardrobe. French girls know that and pairing them up with one of the latest trends is its key to success. 
4- Go for a soft makeup: A little blush, natural eyeshadow, mascara and red lips. That's it.
5- Be confident: French people are very comfortable in their own skin and, believe me when I say, there is nothing sexier than that.
6- Leave it unfinished: Even if you have spent hours in front of the mirror getting ready, always leave the house with an effortless look. Whether it's your shirt half-tucked and with some buttons undone or your sleeves rolled up, looking a little bit unpolished is very french.
7-  Borrow from the boys: Add masculine touches to feminine outfits and don't be afraid of wearing oversize pieces.
8-  Simple hairstyle: Wash your hair every other day and avoid looking like you put too much effort styling your hair. In fact, if it is slightly messy, better.
9-  Colour palette: Noir is their best friend, that's true, but it is not the only one. You can wear any colour although try to go for the neutrals and if you like the brighter ones just make sure to wear only one piece at a time.
10-  Fragrance: Always wear perfume. And that is a rule. Choose a scent that identifies you and sprays it two or three times a day.


ES: A continuación les dejo diez tips que van a ayudarles a adquirir ese deseado estilo francés:
1- No exagerar: Las francesas no abusan en la cantidad de maquillaje, accesorios o colores que usan, así que asegúrense de mantener un look chic pero simple al mismo tiempo.
2- Cuiden su piel: Esta es la parte de nuestro cuerpo que más delata el paso del tiempo , en especial la de la cara, por lo que es de vital importancia comenzar a cuidarla desde jóvenes. Por eso, si no has empezado, éste es el momento de hacerlo. ¿Cómo? Hidratándola, usando protector solar, bebiendo mucho agua y nunca, jamás,  ir a dormir maquilladas.
3- Back to basics: Hay algunas prendas que son consideradas básicas y que no pueden faltar en el guardarropas de toda mujer. Las chicas francesas lo saben y una de las claves de su éxito es combinarlas con una de las últimas tendencias.
4-  Elijan un maquillaje suave: Un poco de rubor, una sombra natural, máscara y labios rojos. Eso es todo.
5-  Tengan confianza:  Los franceses se sienten cómodos en su propia piel y créanme cuando les digo que no hay nada más sexy que eso.
6-  Déjenlo sin terminar: Incluso si han pasado horas frente al espejo preparándose siempre salgan con un look de "no he tenido mucho tiempo".Dejen su camisa mitad metida dentro y con algunos botones desabrochados o úsenla arremangada, lucir un poco desprolijo es muy french.
7- Pídànle prestado a los hombres: Añadan toques masculinos a outfits femeninos y no tengan miedo a usar prendas oversize.
8- Peinado simple: Laven su pelo día por medio y eviten lucir como si hubieran puesto mucho esfuerzo a la hora de peinarse. De hecho, si este luce un poco messy, mucho mejor.
9- Paleta de colores: El noir es su mejor amigo, eso es verdad, pero no es el único que usan. Pueden vestir cualquier color pero traten más de ir por los neutros y si desean usar alguno un poco más brillante asegúrense de llevar sólo una prenda.
10- Fragancia: Estar siempre perfumado, ésa es la regla. Elijan un perfume que los caracterice y pónganse dos o tres veces al día.
