Lily Collins Puts A Modern Twist On French-Girl Beauty


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.

French Twist

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.

Red Lip

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.

Dusty-Rose Tones

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.

Subtle Contour

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.

Fresh Complexion

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.
