From foundation to mascara here are some make-up secrets dedicated to the over 40'...... with a single attention: the illuminant. Important: it's not necessarily a question of looking younger, simply to make the most of the natural changes in our face.

A cult brand in France, much-loved by green addicts worldwide, in the last twenty years Nuxe has been synonymous with nature and luxury. Aliza Jabès, the brand founder transformed the traditional laboratory in the heart of Paris into an eco-empire spread over 50 countries. Nuxe has its own story to tell. That of an aspiration, driven by intuition. A fundamental need nurtured and followed by its founder.  

We, Parisian girls looove the spa. In Paris, it is talked about everywhere, girlfriends give each other addresses, a new place opens every week! But when we've never set foot in a spa, we wonder how to do. And French’s are crazy about etiquette… so relax ok, but stress an hour before for fear of looking like a loser, no way. A short guide to good manners could certainly be useful.

Si parla spesso dei capelli delle parigine e del modo di portarli pettinati-spettinati, una vera arte! Ma prima di ottenere questo effetto, c’è tutto un lavoro di cura che riguarda la pelle o i capelli: la parigina, la cura ce l’ha proprio nel suo dna. I nostri capelli sono spesso il barometro del nostro benessere. Allora, ecco come ottenere una capigliatura stupenda!

The Parisian man is a contradiction. He’s drawn to the “nice girl” type, but he’s also attracted to the sexy fox. So how do we strike the right balance between demure and provocative? It’s better to be innocently suggestive than openly ‘come hither”.  We need to look delicate and fresh, not plastered in makeup. In Paris, a woman’s face is fundamental when you first meet. A man’s gaze goes first to your eyes, then to your mouth and your smile. Your boobs actually come last. The first step in enticing a guy the Parisian way, is to have the right reflexes before your mirror. Here’s a quick guide.

French women take their skincare very seriously. It’s part of our culture, we know beauty and know skincare… so we make it look easy and natural. This is the secret of the Parisian style, effortless clean beauty. The “Je ne sais quoi” beauty of a French girl. But the starting point is: we find a skin care routine that works and stick to each of us. In France, “clean beauty” is a global trend because women are starting to understand that “dirty” chemicals may cause allergies, or skin diseases. Let’s have a look at our skincare routine.
