How many times in the past 10 days have you read the phrase “no-makeup makeup'? Probably a lot. Many have potentially been on this very site! Because looking like a slightly filtered version of yourself can be a great thing. We're big fans.
But every once and a while, it's nice to turn up a little— accessorize that perfectly dewy skin with a red lip, or maybe a teal cat eye. Even Caroline de Maigret, queen of bed head and bare-faced segment of French women everywhere, thinks so! From her Top Shelf:
“You’ll notice for French women that it’s bad if you have too much makeup...if everything is too much, it doesn’t work. But I’ve actually been trying to understand why, culture-wise, women can’t show off? It’s a bit sad in a way because it’s fun when people go eccentric.”
Really, why not? There's no harm—it'll all come off at the end of the day with a little Bioderma anyway.
