I don't think so, I've seen multiple women out on the streets whom were absolutely gorgeous yet they weren't particularly "skinny". I've also seen skinny women who were beautiful as well. I don't think weight matters. On the other hand, as they say, "beauty is in the eye of the beholder". : )
I’m super curious if you learned English in England- the north of England to be precise. Because when you say “beauty”, it definitely sounds English. You also tend to drop your t’s off the end of your words. So it sounds like you have a mix of a northern English and French accent.
My first English teacher was from Northern England, I believe. But there is also the fact that the microphone doesn't hear everything 100%: I have to accentuate that final s for it to be heard. If I don't, it sounds like I didn't say it...
Interesting. I’m from Los Angeles and have always loved France. I, too, don’t like when people notice a change. That’s why I always dye my hair the same color and use almost the same makeup, with slight variations here and there. Sometimes people notice and I simply deny it. I want looks to be te icing on the cake, but not the heart and soul of my existence.
The idea that "most people in the world are chronically dehydrated" is not true. It was a fad belief in the 90's that somehow hasn't died off. You need water to live, but much of what you need comes from food, the rest from what you're naturally inclined to drink. You don't have to water constantly throughout the day.
I love the beauty brand Sisley. Hugely expensive but lasts for ages. Their cleansing milk with sage cleanser is so gentle and leaves skin so soft, their cucumber moisturizer is equally as wonderful, great for combination skin. Products are very expensive but I use a tiny amount and so lasts me ages. I don't ever wear foundation and allow my skin to breathe.
A clean diet, lots of healthy fats- oils, seeds and nuts, avocado. Drink lots of water, don't smoke.
M’y husband is French and he doesn’t like the French women’s aesthetic of not brushing their hair - to him it looks bedraggled and unattractive. After spending a lot of time in the country I’d have to agree with him. He said one of the things that attracted me to him was that I was ‘coquette’ my hair, makeup and nails were always done (simply) and I take really good care of my skin. Also it’s not true that French women don’t get botox or injections they just never talk about it lol 😆
i dunno what products to apply on my face.. its super dry (genetics). and most brands influencers use here arent available in my country.. i turned to mashing grocery cucumbers for masks and planting aloe vera myself for masks too (alternate lol) and virgin coconut oil for lotion and hair.. cuz i cant afford lotions.. so i make.. cuz the trees are just in my backyard lol xD but so far.. its still dry.. my hair is still fine as ever.. easily snappable.. and my skin.. tho smooth, is not evenly colored.
I am curious about what facial sun screen you would recommend. I have bought several here in the US and I always end up with what looks like a shiny white film on my face from it. Do you know of any that look natural on the skin?
There are channels where you can get recipes for all kinds of masks and skin treatments that are natural.
At menopause hot flashes will turn your skin red and foundation will be a must. I am 59 and have the skin of a 30 year old woman. No sun bathing for me.
You don't need a spa. Use natural homemade products.
My hair is thick and wavy. I have to brush it. Knots? Knots are good? Oh my! American women are into fancy haircuts if they can afford it.
Well Justine, I only just yesterday found your channel and after watching this video I have come to officially love you.. 🥰 it’s important what you’re doing and I’m extremely grateful for your gifts and also your ability to share them with us 💋🙏Merci 🙌
What I learned from Scandinavian women: simple is elegant
What I learned from German women pragmatism conveys confidence
What I learned in this video from a French woman: subtle is beautiful, but mystery is irresistible.
When I was about 15 I read a '20 Questions' type interview with a very glamorous woman (I can't remember who!) and she didn't answer the question about which perfume she uses because 'a woman should have her secrets', and I thought it was the most elegant thing in the world. I took it to heart so much that I'm a little shocked at the idea of a woman announcing what she uses :p
I love the philosophy of less is more but definitely find it hard to master. I feel like everything in the US is about more pigment, more coverage so it takes a lot of work to find just the right amount of everything for your own personal taste.
Everything she has mentioned is common sense. I'm not Fenech but every woman in my family follows the same things. I am sorry I just don't think French women have monopoly over feminine beauty or good beauty routines/habits. Maybe French women are just really conceited. LOL.
Do french woman commonly get highlights in thier hair? How about natural lookinh eyelash extensions? I loved this video..i think overall my sense of style is very french i never would of known untill watching this video. Thankyou. Xx
What was interesting about this was the contrast in the mentality of two cultures. I don't think if you hadn't studied in the USA and wondered why they did things differently you would have chosen these essential points.
I did live in another country and was surprised at the importance given to cleaning the face. Having been born in America most of my friends were washing with soap and spending lots of money to put the oils back into their skin.
There are three things which I'd like to bring up. One is that if you spray water on your face during the day wouldn't it dry out the face as it evaporated?
The other thing might be true for Italy and not France. New York City is prudish. Given its Dutch origins versus the Puritan origins of the Boston area its peculiar. As a child unless there was a wedding or something for which you'd probably be buying a new dress,especially as a teenager when I was allowed to wear long dresses at 17 that was a necessity. After school when yearly growth meant new clothes I was told not to wear anything new, it would seem like boasting. In Italy a friend laughed and said if an Italian woman had a pretty new sweater she put it on as soon as possible. This might have been my mother, I thought. Then I read when Martin Scorsese was preparing to film The Age of Innocence, he discovered women would get new clothes either copied from the French houses or they went there or frequently the tailors would come to the US and tour the different cities. They brought fabric samples and took the measurements to update the mannequin for that woman. Perhaps the first "trunk shows"?
Justine, last summer I had broken my shoulder and lots of bones. It hurt more than I thought. I couldn't concentrate very little long and remembered YouTube. I didn't think there were videos on every imaginable subject. You have been a delight. Intelligent, relaxed and happy, thoughtful and showing that fashion or how you like ve is a conscious choice and ought not be something you do without thinking. I returned to a country I didn't recognize. I'd changed too. I loved my morning bath. I hated being short and going into shops where the standard is a model 172 cm. I didn't like being told I couldn't wear long hair after 16 when I was 35.
I was still jealous of my friends who had jars of pretty creams and I still had acne break outs.
Thank you for this. Unfortunately the part about perfume is irrelevant. The few fragrances of Caron and Patou and lesser known houses haven't been available in two decades. Alcohol can not be sent through the mail as it is considered an explosive. Americans spray themselves and men spray their entire bodies with things that smell like fruit and vegetables. Flowers are looked down upon. It is sad. Happily there isn't the old aunt to kiss or woman at the next table on whom a perfume has changed. They're synthetics so reactions with skin don't happen. Men don't wear scent either. I miss that.
The full coverage foundation pushed by the selfies and HDTV is bizarre. Blush, highlighter and contour are all needed to recreate the face made into an even plane. For the young people it's fine. They're young and having fun. They've caused the "drugstore" brands to produce better quality products. No longer do you know a woman's income by her mascara.
I do miss better quality clothing. I'm hanging on to my cashmere sweaters. Outside the cities it's tee shirts and jeans. If you want to spend $400 on a cheap-looking dress of polyester, go ahead. Life has become more casual but there are the women who take care of them selves and those who don't. Even if they have little money and use inexpensive creams I can still see a difference.
What I've learned with cleansing your face. When using a cream one that helps with your acne. You put on dry and press and message in the skin. And gently use water a little at a time to wash away. I've found it less harsh and it works better for your skin. And it helps with my acne and my skin isn't dry. And I Pat dry and let my face dry on its on. I don't have to use more moisturizer on my skin like I use to
This is great In the uk women are obsessed with having an orange face thick eye brows and contouring to the max It is ridiculous! Less is more and I love the French approach to beauty and makeup 💄 Justine you are fantastic X
I'm in the Netherlands. Here women will gladly tell you their beauty secrets if you ask them, but at the same time pretend it's not big deal to them. There is a slight taboo on caring a lot about your appearance, so when the topic is addressed, we usually try to address it as briefly and nonchalantly as possible and then change the subject, lest someone might think we're too invested in our looks.
Using makeup is not 'clogging the pores'. I really like this video and agree - I live in France for many years. When it comes to makeup, it can be a barrier between your skin and the pollution. So it's actually recommended.
In my country (The Dominican Republic) women go to the salon at least once a week to get their hair done. It's like a religion 😁Also, manicures and pedicures every couple of weeks. We use a lot of home remedies for hair and skin (honey, molasses, coconut oil and milk, oats, etc.). A lot of body wraps to slim down too. People don't have too much money, so we get creative and use what we have on hand, and it works 😊
I love the fact that aging is accepted and surgery and fillers are not used. It’s so important to just let yourself age and to use good skincare and have a healthy lifestyle. Fillers and surgery actually end up aging you more anyway because that look is typically only seen on much older women, and it takes the youthful beauty away.
I would kindly advise some jojoba oil on your hair from eyebrow level down. Not a criticism just a critique. You look like you have good strong hair it just needs some moisture. And you can use the same jojoba oil on your face. It’s non m-comedogenic, similar to your skin’s natural oils, even good for sensitive and acne prone skin. Great advice about the sunscreen ☀️ 👍
Hi my style , Estée Lauder makeup and skin care , precisely cut bob , always coloured no roots, ! Well groomed , stable weight I am a UK size 10.i have never ever or would have any cosmetic procedures, I alway wear makeup and perfume , my skin care has always come first most important!
I think people have become way too accustomed to getting stuff for free.
People nonchalantly and shamelessly ask what your beauty secrets are without considering the fact that maybe it took you years or even decades to come up with your beauty secrets, and people simply ask for those secrets like you owe them anything. And when you don’t share anything, you’re the most selfish person on earth.
Well, guess what, if you want any secret...
PAY FOR IT, CHEAPSKATE.
Huh, turns out I've been doing things more or less the French way this whole time! 🙂
I do wonder how one gets by without brushing their hair every day though. Mine gets so tangled if I do that. My hair is in a bit rough shape in general though...
I'm 55 and my daughter 25.
Washing your hands, not touching your face! One of the first rules ( among many ) I learned my daughter. Maybe I'm overwhelmed.At school she was offended because of that, but she was holding it.
No amount of even the most expensive products is gonna help your skin if you eat junk food. I've been vegetarian (mostly vegan) for more than half of my life, using only olive oil soap (which I make myself) and home made creams, not using any make up, foundations nor anything at all and I keep hearing that I have a beautiful skin. Reduce/eliminate chemicals (from your skincare and diet) and you will give your skin the best look ever.
