“It’s very French to be able to walk out the door and look as though you haven’t done anything to your make-up – it’s not always about wearing colour, but beautiful flawless skin and groomed brows,” explains Baron. Opt for foundations that enhance rather than camouflage your complexion (like gels, liquids or fluids) and correct with concealer. To define brows, use a pencil to subtly fill and shape, and then set with clear gel.

Baron likes to layer colour on the lash line to create depth and make eyes appear bigger.
