There’s no doubt about it, French women all have a certain je ne c’est quoi that we all strive to emulate, but can never quite duplicate. Mention the phrase “French girl” and images of Anna Karina’s crisp cat-eye and Francoise Hardy’s blunt cut all instantly come to mind. Their effortless ease is what makes French girl beauty all the more alluring. While it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what the French have that we don’t, we chalk their it-girl factor to their unapologetic acceptance of who they are and their individual approach to beauty, and keeping the products they use as clean as possible.
