What is it about French girls and their nonchalant take on beauty? They have a knack for pulling off a polished but seemingly effortless look. We asked MECCA Makeup Artist Sally Axford to walk us through a classic French look step-by-step; the smudged smokey eye, the matte red lip, the glowing, fresh skin with just a hint of colour. And for extra Frenchness? We slipped her a few products from the new NARS Charlotte Gainsbourg Collection (landing instore on May 30) to include in the look. The verdict? Magnifique!
