Caroline De Maigret: Parisian Beauty Rules


Lisa Niven

CAROLINE DE MAIGRET is beautiful, stylish and very, very French, so naturally we have long held her beauty advice in very high regard. With a role as Lancôme’s Parisian Muse announced in July and a new book, How to Be Parisian Wherever You Are, out this month, it seems we’re not the only ones. Here, just in time for Paris Fashion Week, de Maigret shares her ultimate beauty advice – from the power of sexiness to the importance of flaws and, of course, how to approach make-up in a way that’s utterly and undeniably French…

…Embrace your flaws

Some people seem to put their fantasy of ‘the ideal woman’ onto the Parisian woman, while the Parisian woman doesn’t have an ideal. Maybe the key is to let go and be ok with who you are rather than fantasising about perfection. You can’t be perfect. You will only end up always frustrated in life. I have a big nose and that’s ok. As long as I’m ok with it, people won’t see it as a bad thing. I’ll balance it with more eye make-up! Play with who you are. I like that about Parisian women.
