The French Idea of Pretty

In today's New York Times Style Section, (http://www.nytimes.com/2006/05/25/fashion/thursdaystyles/25skin.html), there is an article on how French women view makeup and what is considered pretty. I have visited Paris numerous times and I must say their skin is always fabulous because they focus on skincare more than makeup. The majority of their makeup lines do not have as many choices of color to choose from as here in America. I don't necessarily agree with the entire article, but I do find some points valid. I can appreciate a different perspective and wholeheartedly believe different views can be a great way of understanding what we deem as pretty. I hope you find it interesting. I did. When I head back to Paris for Thanksgiving, I hope to remember this article and maybe my beauty perspective will be a little more acute. I hope this blog makes everyone who visits feel pretty on the inside because that is what truly counts the most. Au Revoir P.S. I don't know how long the article will be available so please pass along to others.
