Freshen Up, French Style!
How do the French stay beautiful? Would you believe me if I told you that their make-up tip was to wear barely-there makeup? It’s true! French style makeup consists of fresh, clean skin. Smoothen out your skin with a touch of foundation and powder. Then add on a peach coat of lip-gloss. Voila! Instant natural beauty! If you insist on eye-makeup, add a bit of mascara to make your eyes pop.
According to Laura Mercier, a French creator of a line of cosmetics and skin care, “It really astonishes me the way American women wear so much makeup. In America, even teenage girls are overly made-up. And when you are overly made-up, you send out the message that you are overly sexual, that you want to be visible to attract men.” What does this mean for JOY girls? It means that you are, and always have been, beautiful just the way you are! Make-up doesn’t make you beautiful. It is your shinning personality! Let your natural, God-given beauty show!
