Today I Like ... French Beauty

Want to have the allure of a Parisian woman? Apparently it's as easy as having an on-call home masseuse, drinking red wine every day, never wearing foundation and artfully mussing your hair. I was completely intrigued by this article about French beauty, particularly this section:
"But there’s something we find sexy about not being perfect every day and every second.  The amount of foundation sold in France is quite ridiculous compared to what is sold in Asia or America. We’re not great foundation users. Anytime you can actually see the tricks, it looks wrong to us. If you see a woman is wearing foundation, this is wrong to us. This is how we were brought up."
For inspiration, here are some French girls who seem to have the minimal makeup, mussed hair, casual chic thing down pat.

 Audrey Toutou

Charlotte Gainsbourg

Her sister, Lou Doillon

Clemence Poesy

Garance Dore

Lea Seydoux

Melanie Laurent

I'll tell you one thing...I don't think a French woman would ever eat a Wendy's Baconator, so there's that.
