there’s no question french girls have the no makeup, makeup look down to a science. they’re minimalistic by nature, so the few products they use need to be multipurpose and packed with benefits…

we did our research and found these bathroom staples to be the most pop among parisian beauties…

micellar cleansing water– one of the oldest beauty staples in france, micellar water nixes the need for a sink and is the perfect on-the-go cleanser. this magic ‘conditioning elixir’ removes makeup and impurities without stripping or drying the skin. it’s their secret to having hydrated but never oily complexion. saturate a cotton ball or pad and apply to dry face like you would a toner.

saint laurent touche eclat– this magic golden pen brightens and immediately erases any signs of fatigue, giving your skin that 8-hours of sleep look. it’s no wonder this iconic concealer is sold somewhere in the world every 10 seconds. foundation is a big no-no for french women who believe you should never hide your skin’s natural color. instead, they opt for concealer to hide any imperfections (bags under your eyes, blemishes and sides of nose) and let their freckles and natural hue shine.

hydrating facial mist– parisians have the #iwokeuplikethis look down to a T. you’ll never spot one with old makeup or dehydrated skin and that’s thanks to the secret weapon they’re carrying: hydrating facial mist. it’s a great pick-me-up that instantly moisturizes and refreshes the skin. it’s also great for setting makeup and adding a radiant, dewy glow.
