An insider Netflix prediction for autumn 2020: The platform’s hotly-anticipated original series Emily in Paris — which airs 2nd October — is about to take over your ‘Trending Now’ tab. Dubbed a modern-day Sex & The City (with croissants), Darren Star’s new Netflix drama is already generating buzz, and now the show’s lead, Lily Collins, is inspiring us to plan a full-blown Parisian-themed watch party for the premiere.
The 31-year-old actress, who plays marketing expert/budding influencer Emily Cooper, has been as chic and well-styled as her character throughout the Emily In Paris promo tour. From her soft French twists to her mauve-rose smoky eyes, Collins is nailing the Parisian beauty aesthetic, and giving classic French-girl beauty trends a modern twist. For proof — and the ultimate fall hair-and-makeup inspiration — scroll ahead.
For her press tour styling, Collins tapped celebrity hairdresser Mara Roszak, who has made effortless elegance her industry M.O. To hit on the Parisian theme, Roszak gave Collins a quintessential French twist, but left looser strands around her ears and face for a sexier, lived-in vibe.
For glam, Collins called on makeup artist Fiona Stiles, who served up this timeless beauty look: a soft smoky eye and fire-engine red lip that’s a perfect complement to the star’s sheer-blue pussy-bow blouse.
While we know red lipstick is a classic French-girl staple, this dusty mauve-rose feels like a fitting 2020 upgrade for the year’s more natural vibe. The tone, which pull from the same deep-pink shades in her dress and eyeshadow, pull the entire look together.
Ask any French woman and she’ll probably tell you she doesn’t contour. But here, Stiles gives Collins barely-there definition to mimic a romantic candlelit glow and emphasise her natural bone structure.
The French way is to focus on beautiful skin over high-coverage makeup. Here, Stiles goes for that quintessential, fresh-faced approach on Collins — just a dab of colour on the cheeks and lips and a few coats of mascara. Que c’est beau.Credit: Original article published here.
