Their laissez-faire approach to beauty has kept us in a constant state of both fascination and admiration, and we're more than happy to be along for the laid-back ride.
So when we catch wind of the trends that are catching the fancy of French girls, we are taking detailed notes and making immediate moves to change up our look.

Here, we round up a tonne of French-approved brown eye makeup inspiration.
