French makeup & hair | “Parisian chic” | Justine Leconte


French makeup & hair | “Parisian chic” | Justine Leconte

This video is not a tutorial: it shows examples of famous French (Parisian) women so you can see what their aesthetics and their beauty routine in terms of hairstyle and makeup look like. I tackle skincare, lips, eyes, eyebrows, brands and hair.
The idea behind this video series is to look at “French chic” from an international perspective.
Comments and opinions along the way are mine, you may very well disagree 😉

Thumbs up if you liked this video!

New videos: Wednesday 5pm & Sunday 12pm (Paris/Berlin time).

    I'm from the US. Most of the fashion tips you've given are the same ones I use. Many are common in the US, but my mother is Belgian (where french fries are from). How similar are other European fashion essentials/standards?

    I'm curious about the hair-cutting technique for invisible layers. I don't seem to find any YouTube videos explaining this French technique. Do you have something that explains this better please?

    interesting video. It is good to know these, to look great while you are in France.

    From watching these videos I've determined that I typically do at least 80% of this naturally, and I'm American. I do have a pixie cut though 🙂 I'm typically perceived as very low-key/ low-maintenance, or tomboyish because I do sprinkle in some punk (not intentionally, it's just what I prefer) pieces and have that flavor I suppose. I've been told lovingly that I'm "fashion-inept" though by makeup trend savvy sorts of people, but I haven't really changed much about my appearance and stick to what suits me. I've also been told that I have a really unique and flattering look though…so I've pretty much stopped listening to anyone. I find the American styles (at any given time or year) too freaking loud and complicated, without even necessarily complimenting most people. Americans are generally ridiculous, and living here my entire life has never even helped me embrace it, I personally hate it here and always feel like an outsider.

    I think it's so interesting how when you speak english, you have an U.K-english accent intertwined with your french accent!…

    Hi Justine. I was working at my computer today and youtube randomly presented me with some of your clips, including this one. It's very "haute" to be into French beauty and style nowadays, with numerous books written on the topics of how to dress, live, eat, and relax in the "French" way (yes, I've read them). I find your tips and advice super accessible and easy for the average, busy woman (French or not) to relate to. I loved your comments about hair, especially — the French way (here in America, what am I DOING spending tons of time and money blowing out/flat-ironing/curling my hair? The worst thing about it is that, even if it looks nice, I simply don't WANT to). This world generally needs to take a chill pill (hear that, ladies?). Many of us are trying to dial it down in this busy world while hoping to remain elegant and confident. In a world where I have resisted Instagram and all sorts of others things, you're giving me an "in" back into beauty that's so refreshing (and empowering!). Thank you for your infectious smile, friendly approach, and streamlined, sympathetic advice. Merci!

    I lived in Paris for a long time, and I miss it so much! I think a lot of European habits, from eating, decorating and dressing have come back with me.

    What beauty products are used in France that are cruelty free? Nuce and Caudalie do test on animals in China.

    Justine- you are adorable! You have the brightest friendly face and a beautiful smile. You put everything so simply. You make me feel we can all achieve this look. It is logic to play up your good features and play down the ones you aren't happy with. It is taking care of yourself and being confident. Merci

    The nailpolish colour you are wearing is very nice. Could you share what brand and colour it is? Thanks

    I super love it! that's actually my concept of a good make up! Enough of this Kardaishan look! I never appreciated it

    I have the same philosophy with the exception that when it comes to beauty products high cost does not always equate to better quality. This applies particularly to skin care. My skin care purchases are more scientifically proven ingredients driven these days. I will admit there is something about luxurious packaging that speaks to my feminine desires however.

  • Elizabeth Zhang

    Totally agree and expect more videos regarding the same or similar topic. Thank you very much.

    I use a eyebrow shaver on the top because otherwise my eyebrows would not be the same height. I hate it because I was told to never pluck the top of my eyebrows but it is just shaving and the hairs will always come back. I recommend a facial shaver to anyone who is scared of making huge eyebrow changes. 🙂

    The word FONT /Type you used is interesting. I haven't seen it before. (for the categories "Brand" etc) I analyze different font types as a hobby.
