Wel­come to the birth­place of beauty’s cool girl. Although foun­da­tion, smudged kohl and a slick of red lipstick might be ev­ery­day es­sen­tials here, the aim of the beauty game is to look as though you’re not slav­ish to the end re­sult. Make-up that takes time or a steady hand is out; fool-proof ap­pli­ca­tion is in. French phar­macy brands – La Roche-Posay, Bio­derma, Avène – sit hap­pily in bath­room cab­i­nets along­side Yves Saint Lau­rent bul­lets and Chanel lift­ing masks. But you won’t find a hair straight­ener in sight: natural tex­ture and vol­ume may re­quire a lot of prod­uct but less ef­fort over­all. Fra­grance is es­sen­tial: spray it not on bare skin but on your silk cami or hair … it lingers longer that way. BEAUTY SOU­VENIR: A niche scent from fra­grance con­cept store Nose.

At Paris fash­ion week.
