when i went to america women would go so glamed up to random places, even to the shop or to the cinema and i thought why would you wear that much makeup, just to be on a dark room watching a movie. why

You are crazy if you think a French woman is going to be honest about her beauty secrets to a stranger with a video camera.

Why do Americans love this so much? I live in the Netherlands and here all the girls/women do the same thing. Just mascara. Most do nothing at all for makeup. It's really not that special. I'm seriously asking, do Americans like it because it contrasts their beauty routines or is there something else to it? Cause where I live no one really cares or finds themselves chic. It's not a stylistic choice either. Just being quick in the morning.

According to this video, the secret, or a key component among them is simplicity. I've read some comments regarding the beauty of these women, their perfect skin, their glow, their natural beauty, etc., and when comparing eastern vs western diets a lot of what we put in our bodies comes right out through our skin. What we eat in the states (or maybe what's considered the norm) is not nearly as healthy as what they eat out there. Even the school meals are significantly healthier (do your research). I also think the fact that they DO put less is a reason the skin is well maintained. Skin is usually sensitive and make-up products have harsh chemicals. A very small percentage of people actually read the ingredients and look up what they're all about. For the most part, people will go and buy whatever is the hype at the moment circulating YouTube, blogs, magazines. This is not to discount those with genetic material that results in troublesome skin or hormonal issues. Still, I do believe the lifestyle differences among the cultures play a significant role. The glow and texture of my skin is significantly enhanced when I eat clean (lots of greens), lay off meat for little bit at a time, and drink loads of water. It also helps me maintain a healthy weight. So much of this has to do with lifestyle and adjustment... and not to get too deep, but the air as well. The air is polluted as hell. That affects us. So does constant sun exposure without protection. Wear SPF!!! xoxo

Very European, I would say. For me the most important part is the day cream and of course sun screen. Never leave the house without sun screen on your face. You'll thank yourself when you're old.
Mary Dolman (8 months ago)
Well I don't wear much makeup either so I must be French or a wannabe :) but why is it that every American made youtube video on natural or minimal makeup is actually about applying 20 products with a spatula, layers of eyeshadow, heavy black eyeliner and false eyelasthes? Maybe it's because I'm older I remember when natural actually meant hardly any makeup, so it's good to know that is still in fashion somewhere.
Eddie Q (8 months ago)
Too simple for me!
Parizankah (8 months ago)
Parisian born here: we do put makeup if we are going to gala parties and stuff. For the everyday stuff, ugh... Who has the time to put a primer, foundation, baking, concealer, bla bla bla? Maskara, khol, tinted moisturiser, eventually blush and you're ready to go. For the skincare: it's micellar water, exfoliating sometimes, a mask once a week and moisturiser. That's it.

+GH TM no we don't, only when we go in an other country where it hot or when we go out to get tanned and the sun is really really hitting hard. I think only people who have whitest skin among all or/and are afraid to get burned put sunscreen .
GH TM (2 months ago)
but you don't use sunscreen ?

Grace R (9 months ago)
Americans (I can say this, I am one) use so many products and put so much stress of flawlessness that they aren't even approachable. When I see another woman who enhances her beauty instead of covering it with another face, I want to talk to her. Ladies, lets stop this passive-aggressive competition thing. Makeup should be fun, and if you have fun doing winged eyeliner and heavy couture, that's great, but you should try a little of everything. Simplicity is the greatest way to feel beautiful.

What a great idea! Please do more interviews with french women, we still have so much to learn from them. I love these simple looks, and they look really confident to me, like they accept who they are and are being really authentic. I write blog posts about issues like these, authenticity is really important to me https://coffeenglam.com/2018/03/14/move-towards-goals/ hope you like it!

Are they saying french is much nicer/prettier than Americans???I think French makeup are boring😄makeup shd. be playful😉 a woman shd. make an effort to be prettier by any means possible coz you only have 1 life make it fun and more beautiful why wud u want a person who look natural all year round???
Yazzy Raka (1 year ago)
ok but like one woman sayed about how she view the hair routine of american womans (even it's not true for everyone) and you still say "they" , plus it's their choice to be basic when doing make up so you are doing a bit like her when you say that and why should a woman make an effort to be prettier?? like isn't she already? and putting makeup isn't always beautiful you know but then every country has it beliefs and of course you shouldn't generalize
Asalis Zabollone (1 year ago)
It's all about the clothes really, french girls will take 10mins for hair and make up but you'll never see them going out in yoga pants. That's what makes them classy and elegant

Céline Tenenbaum (1 year ago)
Guys you need to understand that it's not because frenchies are romantized that we think other people from other country are too much or fake.. don' t get so upset. I agree, there is a myth about us, french women, but it's not always like this
Esin Dirik (1 year ago)
Stop saying "skin care is everything". I take care of my skin and I'm very knowledgeable about this issue since years, but I don't have a skin like "French women". Discoloration, acne, face hair, redness, purple under-eye area and all these stuff just don't go away, because it also has to do with genetics. I get it French beauty secret is natural beauty. Mine is not and I'm sorry about this after doing everything I need to do about skin care.
Tortue DeRien (3 months ago)
I can advice you to use a bit of lavender oil with water for your acne, no make up on it or it will not cicatrise efficiently. Always keep it clean and don't touch it or you will infect it, it's strictly discipline, I'm sure you already knew it. For discoloration, if it's red you can play around it : use a bit of concealer on it, maybe a bit of green concealer to get a pinker shade of your skin tone, and a pink blush (or lipstick) on the cheeks, discretely to recreate your blushy tone. For face hair, i know that people care about it and judge women as masculin if they don't remove it so anything you are gonna do with it will be a statement : agree or disagree. If you are ready to remove it, use a cream to hydrate skin, maybe a concealer to break shades. Or keep it. We generally remove lip hair and define eyebrows quickly. For redness, if that means your have red areas on your skin it's because blood vessels have dilated under the pressure so release it, hydrate with your lavender and then, just get able to see it like it will really be : skin is a whole, see it like a clear wall with its nice unique stuff. Purple under eye usually means that you are not having enough sleep. Drink water, sleep a little more, maybe wake up 30 min later with time freed by less makeup routine, concealer and that's it. Nothing will really go away as you will always remember it but it will be your face you will proudly show. And the more you'll see it, the more you will appropriate your image and you won't have to really think about it. You always can find ways that work better for you, oil prodigieuse, a specific cream... But you will ultimately feel like beauty comes from the inside and people are only gonna care about that. You will look effortless but you will be appreciated for your confidence and humility. Makeup is all about the way you look at yourself.
Fawzat Trabilsy (11 months ago)
Yes and also genetics. Science and our biological makeup are stronger than anything we ingest or any medication we can take for our skin. There is only so much we can change. I know people who workout 24/7 and eat all organic and non-dairy diets with cystic acne. Hormones and genetic as well. Please do research before you write "facts".
Fawzat Trabilsy (1 year ago)
People don't understand the concept of "genetics". People with naturally nicer skin will put their two cents in about skincare but in reality, people with acne know a lot more. "just do this and this and you'll have beautiful skin". Everyone is different and should have their own skincare regime. One thing they forgot to mention is the difference in stress levels and diets around the world. That's their secret.

this is a cool look if u really like it but ????? where's the fun in not trying? i love being dressed up! from my makeup to my outfit, i like having people know that everything is a conscious decision, and that i didn't just wake up, throw something on, and then leave. i guess that's what makes me an american girl through and through
Choi Moon (9 months ago)
Also our culture is not the same as the US, we still prefer simple things (even our popular brands like Chanel use it as their first argument)
T de Lioncourt (1 year ago)
I think it's because in france we like to pretend we are doing things effortlessly but it's all calculated ^^ (hum I put on heavy makeup so I shouldn't do my hair today) because we prefer to keep a "natural" touch but in the end it's as controlled as american girls way of dressing up/doing makeup, it's just a difference of what being on point is in both countries =)
MsLittlestar85 (1 year ago)
The secret is in a lifestyle. Good and healthy food and not owereating, great skincare products, walking around a lot etc. Then all you need is a little make up. And that's it!
Eda Ö (1 year ago)
Lol then there's me cakin bakin my face, lashes all day everyday. Applying makeup is just way too much fun for me to stop doing it.

I bought a body wash, made in France. I told my Man about it and his response " why? The french are known for not taking showers". We are j/k. But yea...I was just thinking the same re: brand romance about that stupid oi yogurt commercial. Give me a US brunnett/ hot blonde anyday! #USMade
dapdap kpop (1 month ago)
Only 2 stereotypes is true about french(if I do not forget any other) : We eat bread everyday We do complain a lot but it is not true at 100% cause it may actually seems like complaining to others countries but in fact we just say what bother us and do not keep it inside but some country don't do that so they might find it weird and think we are overly complaining. And the stereotype about french not washing is a 17th century thing, we do wash everyday, woman shave too, we don't not smell like cheese lol we do have cheese with strong smell but not everyone likes it and not everyone like to eats snail or frog.
Bianca Raquelle (1 year ago)
Naureen Anwar the saying is that they don't wear deodorant or underpants..not that they don't take showers
Céline Tenenbaum (1 year ago)
Don't worry I shower everyday, my family and my friends too. And we have amazing baths in our Haussmannian's flat . Bises
Vienna Rowlings (1 year ago)
Ahahahaha, not to defend the French, but as a European what you said about showers is ridiculous! You don't even have bidets and you just clean your asses with toilet paper, leavin' all poop bacterias right where they are. How can you think of being even remotely close to clean?
