I follow these tips all the time, but I'm not French. I'm Greek. By the way, I've seen French ladies but they are plain looking and basic, to be honest. I'm a realist and "Parisian chic" is a bit vain, snobbish and pretentious cliché term to say the least, based from what I've seen in reality. Originality vs over-the-top shallow and vain stereotypes. 1-0.

As with all human consumption, what women do in terms of beauty is mostly strongly related to the money they have.

I heard French women are really competitive with each other so the last point doesn't surprise me at all
Shirley Silus (5 days ago)
I agree with the not trying too hard. Here in the States the "contouring" and heavy makeup make a lot of our woman look very fake.

I think I may have been French in a past life because I’ve always instinctively knew these things. It’s amazing to have instincts vindicated. This was a lovely video!

so true for the bare skin...I am French, I live in the USA but merely wear foundation. I wear bb cream. I see the difference but others don't see that I wear make up. Great video!

I'm French and don't know anyone who does that...

As an Indian girl, I have ridiculously thick, and very long hair. If I don't brush it every morning, it has a tendency to knot and occasionally mat in the most horrific way

You have a patronising tone and sound like a know it all. Just because something worked for you(you thought) wouldn’t work for all. My in laws and friends are French and a lot of what to said is just your own way not a French thing apparently. I know you say that this is what French women do but from your body language I get a vibe that also says ... whatever other people are doing is wrong.

Can you do an essential oil video showing and explaining the benefits. Love your videos!

A lot of these tips are not unique to France, they are pretty universal. Don't touch your face, drink a lot of water, pretty much everyone knows that.

C'est vrai que les francaises sont moins maquillées que les américaines mais leur confiance font en sorte qu'elles sont plus pétillantes.

I get cleanliness, but I really think it's dangerous to obsessively clean your hands.
Nadeen Sivic (24 days ago)
Merci Justine, so pleased to have found your youtube. I have been living in France for nearly 8 years now and I LOVE the approach women have here. Not only with your own routine, but how lovely it is to see mothers passing these down to their daughters. :) I was quietly pleased on a recent trip back to the UK, and catching up with a friend I hadn't seen for years. She said ' wow you look amazing - you look really....French'. eh beh voila!

WOW! Josephine, I have found my ticket to Paris, YOU! Thank you for sharing what we sisters need to know about living LIFE Parisian-style - something we all long to do but were born elsewhere so we thank you for taking us on this journey. I will be looking at all your uploads in next couple days. Thanks again. Ciao! Shari

I'm a huge fan of your, thank you for your videos xx I'm from Sudan and the secret here, is there is none, people here drink heaps of water. We do a lot of home made scrubs and "smoking" (https://youtu.be/Y2kalEcPj54) then more scrubs :)

I just discovered you Justine few days ago and I can't stop watching! :) I'm Polish, living in UK and I keep on noticing how much more similarities there are between French approach to beauty and Polish one, when the UK one is rather on the opposite side. Especially here where I live, in the South East. I've always been thought by both very stylish - my Mum and my older Sister to wear delicate makeup (eyes or lips rule), take care of skin, moisturise etc. Effortless look has always been the go to one.. After moving to UK however, I'm seen as that weird girl from Poland, who doesn't make effort - and yes, here it is a bad , bad thing! I am trying to brush my hair everyday but haven't given in to using straighteners ever day (!!) or wearing full face, heavy, doll-like makeup. Thank you so much Justine, watching your videos keeps me secure and feeling good being my very self :)

Question: Do women French women color their graying hair or embrace it as they age?
Both. It depends on the person 😊

i live in tropical country. back in the days my mom will always put 'some' leftover fruits or veggies to her face as mask and honey to her lips. not too much cosmetics and also just a simple skin care. she always looks fresh

Natural vs artificial doesn’t matter. Its the exact same chemical structure. It’s just marketing.

The Japanese drink lots of green tea. Other than the facial mask in this video, they do pretty much the same mentioned here. They also avoid the sun as it means wrinkles and ageing.

I'm in love with your videos, but I must say... not telling your beauty secrets to anyone sounds a bit rude to me ahaha. I'm mean.. I guess It's a cultural thing. Here in Brazil, if someone asks you ''oh, what kind of perfume are you using?'' and you say ''oh, it's a secret'', people would think you are arrogant. And in fact, I've never seen this happening. We love sharing our beauty 'secrets' with others hahaha. I hope you don't find this commet rude, though ahaha. I love your videos, they are great! xoxo

It's funny because even though I'm technically French I had nobody to teach me such tips. Plus, poorer classes just don't have the budget to be scouring cosmetic shops all the time. As years pass, I shed more and more cosmetics, paring down to the bare minimum and the natural. I should definitely drink more water though.
Rahaa M (1 month ago)
Could you make a video on Oils, please?
I resonate with your comment "Be a great version of yourself". I agree with enhancing our natural beauty. No need to repeat the 80's ( with a putty knife & trowel full of cosmetics) to fill in the cracks. You have a great smile...& I have eyes that show sincere depth. Bravo!

I have never understood the world’s obsession with French beauty and fashion. Yes, most cosmetic brands and fashion houses are French but that’s about it. When I lived in France, I was surprised how bad people looked in the city in general: not visible makeup, no high heap shoes for women, unkept hair, etc. If you go to Spain and Italy, women are so well dressed and pretty.
Melinda McCrady (1 month ago)
Good video but I absolutely disagree with French women who want to keep beauty secrets as secret! (I'm not talking about you Justine, obviously) I mean, don't you want to share beauty tips with your sisters? or do you feel that competitive against other women that you don't want them to look as good?

I stopped brushing my hair decades ago. Even the gentlest brush breaks your hair. I used a thick-toothed comb only, with rounded tines. I air dry my hair, too.

Actually, the phrase, "..... woke up like this." means that a woman is so beautiful that she gets out of bed in the morning looking perfect and doesn't have to make any effort to achieve that. It does not mean that you look like you just got out of bed with messy hair. Instead we call very messy hair 'bedhead'. (thanks for your great vids!)
ArtyView1 (2 months ago)
My fav rule is #1 "Do not brush your hair too often. definitely not every day..." It's brilliant! My life will never be the same now)) ha ha. Love love love you, Justine! So happy I found you ) Thanks for generously sharing your beauty tricks with us! God bless you!
Jodi Michael Horner (2 months ago)
When you talk about not wearing foundation and working on keeping your skin healthy, it's great advice, BUT women start to get discolorations as they age, no matter how well they take care of their skin, because our skin thins! So—as many have mentioned, please be sure to include us 30-40-50+-year olds in your advice! Which, BTW, I LOVE!
Shafagh Ghose (2 months ago)
Thanks a lot for sharing your experiences and tips with us, you talk very sweetly and it makes your videos very enjoyable to watch😃 And yes, your skin is amazingly spotless and nice and that’s what I need to work on right now! Lots of respects!

I wish we in America would just accept our individual differences, as far as cosmetic stuff is concerned. the plastic surgery situation here is out of control. wth are we teaching our kids? how does a woman justify implants to her teenage daughter? "oh, yes, dear daughter, I used to look just like how you look now, so I had surgery to correct that, bcz it wasn't good enough and I had no self esteem." I'm so glad my parents are natural people and not shallow.

Just found your channel and am so enjoying it! I'm American, but my grandfather was French. Your way of life (food, nutrition, health, beauty, etc.) is as I was raised. I'd taken it totally for granted, but now I'm wondering if it's that French culture passed down. Very interesting! :) Thank you for your perspectives!

THANK YOU! How fun Justine, to have you explain all these lovely French tips!
Karolay Melendez (3 months ago)
I’m from Colombia and I have to say: I’m happily amazed about how much my beauty style is just like French beauty style. My skin is far away from perfect and yet I do not use foundation or powder. I just hate to see ALMOST EVERY SINGLE GIRL in America changing their faces completely. I know everyone has different tastes but for me... I think it looks very cheap! However, a simple and minimalist look is always elegant. I love how confident French women are ♥️ Thank you for these videos babe. Now I understand better your culture when it comes to beauty not to mention art and history, my favorite parts of French and Italy.

Bonjour Justine. Je m'appelle Tommaso. Vous êtes une femme si intelligente, magnifique et belle. Étant originaire d'Italie, et de la façon dont j'ai été élevé, je sais à quel point il est important de prendre soin de la peau et de ce qu'il faut manger. J'ai voyagé en France et dans toute l'Europe. Je prends vraiment soin de ma peau et de mon corps, car c'est très important. Je regarde tout ce que je mange. J'aime regarder et t'écouter. J'aimerais pouvoir te connaître. Je crois que nous avons à peu près le même âge. Je n'épouserai jamais une femme américaine. Je prévois d'épouser une femme de France. Je peux vous imaginer être ma femme. J'habite à New York. Je suis un agent de change. Je vais bientôt en Italie pour rendre visite à la famille et aux amis. J'espère avoir de vos nouvelles bientôt. Prends soin. Tommaso

I grew up in Philippines and what you say resonates that of my mother. All products are natural-maybe because we cannot afford those fancy products- kalamansi(Filipino lemon) to keep facial and underarm area white, coconut oil for cleansing and papaya soap too. We keep a rough river stone and use it as body scrubber. Moisturize moisturize even it's humid!

In my community we don't wear lipstick or showy makeup. In fact natural is better. So your culture of less is more really appeals to me They used to make a three day tint for eyelashes. That was my only makeup product for years. Now I only do skin care. Not even a drop of makeup
Monica R König (4 months ago)
Hello Justine, I am from Brazil and, nice to meet you, I agree that care is one thing, but a battle against time (Botox, fillers, deep exfoliating, tons of exaggerated) plastic surgery, well if you don't die Young, why some women run after the fountain of youth?! Senseless right?! Hugs

It's so interesting that the French have the "less is more" approach to hair and makeup and yet look so fresh, lovely and natural all the time. I find that in New Zealand so many young people are applying their foundation so thickly that it's immediately obvious they're wearing it. If I wore makeup that thick, I would be afraid of it coming off on my clothing. And don't get me started on the blusher and bronzer! Oh my word. (I'm sure this is not unique to New Zealand, but that is where I spend 99% of my time :o) ) Personally, I just like to use a light complexion correcting cream and some mineral powder and a little bit of blusher.

I live in the US, but I’m of Arabic culture & one of the things we love to do is use rose water for everything. We use it to tone our skin, set our makeup, mix into our moisturizers, pour into our baths & so much more. It’s quite lovely!

The 3rd idea, in keeping your hands clean to prevent bacteria on your face, has also been a big influence among my family for generations AND we're not French! We have had this practice taught on our children now by great-grandparents. And to think this idea is only a French beauty idea or a protocol for medical areas! This should be everywhere, not just for beauty, but for health reasons.

Most especially yes to not touching your face with dirty hands!!!! Wash before eating, before applying makeup, I cannot stress this enough! I work with money and sometimes I see my coworkers rubbing their eyes or applying lipbalm from a little jar and I cannot help cringing. Money is dirty, and the public, in general, are disgusting. Just like when driving you can't trust your safety on other drivers, you can't blindly trust that other people care about hygiene the same way/level that you do.
