Eye makeup: the Parisian girls’ must-have

Choosing the right makeup for your eyes can sometimes prove tricky. French girls are known for enhancing their natural glow and getting the right eye makeup that will spice things up a notch and underline the features of their face. Mastering the techniques for both your eyes and your eyebrows is essential to define and intensify your look. Yes, you can make your eyes the focus of attention, you just need to have the right products in your beauty case!

Purchasing makeup is easy at Galeries Lafayette and undoubtedly, that is the one place where you will find it all. Head to the Galeries Lafayette’s 400m2 Beauty Department under the Coupole. All the iconic French makeup brands are featured: Chanel, Dior, Guerlain, Lancôme, Yves Saint Laurent, etc. Those are safe bets. It can’t go wrong!

The power of your eyes! Smoky eyes: timeless and sexy

There is nothing like a smoky eye to intensify your gaze and this is an undying trend. It’s sexy, mysterious and chic. So if you haven’t yet mastered the smoky eye technique, the one with a French twist, it is never too late.

So what does it take to make your eyes stand out?
1. The secret weapon to your smoky eyes look will be the eye shadow. You can make it classic, bronze, rosy, for daytime or nighttime, but it has to be there. So be shadow-conscious!
2. The perfect eye shadow would be nothing without the brushes to apply it! So get yourself a makeup brush kit, you won’t regret it!
3. Then of course, choosing the right eyeliner and soft kohl pencil to design the eye will boost the expression.
4. Last but not least, do not forget the mascara. Eye makeup wouldn’t be complete without a good coating of mascara.

Ok now. Your eyes look amazing but what would that be without the eyebrows to frame them! A strong brow can do wonders for your eyes. These need to be well-groomed thanks to trimming, filling and wearing their own makeup. Pencils, brushes and eyebrow powder are among the essentials.

The Galeries Lafayette also offers a wide selection of exclusive products that can be found and purchased online as well.
