Model & Stylist Louise Follain Spills Her Beauty Secrets!

Good news: one of our most notable girl-crushes Louise Follain just shared her gorgeous makeup routine!

This French fox oozes beauty, so we are utterly happy about her spilled secrets.

Not familiar with this modern day Jane Birken, eh? Well, let us introduce you to the woman we’ve been stalking via the gram before you find out about her most quintessential products.

She’s a must-follow.

Louise is a born and raised Parisian whose amazing full lips, dark lengthy lashes and idyllic style are making her the next big Ford model to look out for. Her thick applied mascara and feathery hair are other excellent reasons we’re gushing over cette femme!

Although Follain claims her look is “undefinable and messy“, we think you can pull her straight out of a fashion catalog from the 1960s.

She’s glamorous AF, in an uncomplicated and tout naturel way. Which we can certainly appreciate after the current obsession with heavy contouring (when will it end??!).

Besides being a full-time model, Louise also works as a stylist on the side. Ahhh… how much do you think she charges per session? If only we could hire her, maybe she could help us execute her chic and sexy style de mode (nothing wrong with working on the language of love, don’t hate!).

Too bad she’s most likely out of our budget, she’s probably getting paid quite well to play dress-up with the affluent elite from her hometown. Super impressive considering she is only 21 years old.

Regardless, at least we can find out how she nails her never-over-done classic French look. Thankfully, IntoTheGloss gave us all the deets in two articles, but we combined them into one in order to make life easier for all you busy gals out there.

Ready, set, indulge…


  1. For cleansing:

    Bioderma Sensibio h20
    “Everyone uses it and it’s really the best. There isn’t even a debate to have about it. I use it to cleanse in the morning and at night and it gets rid of the oil on your skin.”
    Organic coconut oil
    “If I have mascara that doesn’t want to come off with it, I use coconut oil and that works easily.”


  2. For Moisturizing:

    NUXE Clarifying Cream,Mask, 1.5 oz

    “Afterwards, I put on some cream—right now, I'm using Nuxe Crème Fraîche de Beauté.”

    YSL Instant Moisture Glow
    “The YSL Instant Moisture Glow I never really understood—it’s supposed to be a quick thing to make your skin look great, so sometimes when I feel like I need that, I put it on. It gives your skin a matte finish and makes it so soft.”
    Chanel Hydra Beauty Crème Riche
    “It smells good, and I think my skin likes it.”


  3. Her Go-to Face Mask:

    Detox Vitamin Mask by Nuxe
    “I also like to do the Detox Vitamin Mask by Nuxe. It looks like honey and feels cooling. My skin feels so fresh afterwards.”
  4. For Her Lips:

    “Other than that, I use Homeoplasmine on the lips. It’s classic and it works.”



  5. For Foundation:

    Diorskin Nude Air Sérum in 020
    “For foundation, I use Diorskin Nude Air Sérum in 020. It covers everything, and doesn’t look like you’re wearing anything, but it makes your skin look perfect. I’ll wear this all the time because I have some spots and it makes my skin smoother.”
    BB Glow Compact from Kiko Milano
    “It’s super cheap and it’s honestly the best tone for my skin. The cream is kind of matte and it just blends right in, so I use it like concealer for red patches or spots. It’s one swipe and it’s perfect.”



  6. For Mascara:

    My favorite is Guerlain Maxi-Lash because the brush is perfect for making you look like you have longer lashes with a little volume. On my bottom lashes, I wiggle the brush to make a little line that’s sublte.

    Clarins Mascara Intense Black
    “Then I like the Clarins Mascara Intense Black because it really separates the lashes without looking spidery, and makes them long. I definitely put more on at night than the day.”
    Lancôme Grandiôse Extreme
    “But this one, the Lancôme Grandiôse Extreme is more impactful—it really shows up on the lower lash line.”


  7. For Eyeliner:

    Kiko Milano Ultimate Pen
    “Then either I use the Kiko Milano Ultimate Pen…”

    YSL pencil
    “..or a YSL pencil. I don’t really advise an eyeliner to anybody, because you have to have your own preference. I like pens, but crayon works for other people. My look is to do a line that begins in the middle of the lashes and very close to the lash line. Then it gets a little bit bigger and a bit pointy at the end, but not too much. It makes the eye look a bit more open.”
  8. For Blush:

    Yves Saint Laurent Baby Doll Kiss and Blush Duo Stick, No. 3 From Cute To Devilish, 0.18 Ounce

    “And I like this, the YSL Babydoll Kiss & Blush Duo Stick in 3. It’s really subtle, and in the summer, the pink works well with a tan.”

    Sonia Rykiel Lancôme collaboration blush
    “The Sonia Rykiel Lancôme collaboration blush in Splash Coral is really nice for this time of year.”


  9. For Bronzing:

    Bronzing Stones from YSL
    “The Bronzing Stones from YSL are also lovely.”
  10. For Lipstick:

    Sephora Always Red
    “The Sephora Cream Lip Stain in Always Red is insane—it dries matte and the red is perfect.”
    Christian Dior Double Rouge Matte Metal Color Lipstick for Women, Poison Purple, 0.12 Ounce

    “Rouge Dior in Poison Matte is a bit darker, and so I add the Sephora Stain on top to make it a little lighter.”

    Tom Ford Lip Color - # 16 Scarlet Rouge 3g/0.1oz

    “And this Tom Ford lipstick in Scarlet Rouge, the color is beautiful. It’s intense, like a wine-stain. If I drink red wine, my lips always get super dark, so this is perfect.”


  11. For Her Cheeks:

    Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow Luminizer Gel
    “I have this thing I just discovered. It’s the Jelly Pong Pong All Over Glow Luminizer Gel, and I just put it on my cheekbones. It looks so good! It’s not shocking, it just makes you look shinier. It’s fun at night. Even if you put a lot on it’s not too much, you just glow. I’m into that right now.”


  12. For Day Time Perfume:

    Remarkable People by Etat Libre D'Orange
    “During the day, I like soft perfumes like Remarkable People by Etat Libre D’Orange…”
    Daisy by Marc Jacobs
    “… or Daisy by Marc Jacobs. Daisy is my all-time favorite, I’ve been wearing it since I was 14 or something.”
    Chanel Chance
    “…I like light and flowery. Like Chanel Chance I love! It’s my mom’s but I borrow it sometimes.”


  13. For Night Time Perfume:

    Nina Ricci L’Extase
    “Or I’ll go sexier with Nina Ricci L’Extase for night.”


14. For Dry Shampoo:

Prêt-à-Powder from Bumble and bumble
“If I don’t wash my hair, I use Prêt-à-Powder from Bumble and bumble, particularly on my bangs. I think it’s great because it’s a dry shampoo but it also makes the hair looks cool and gives an amazing texture.”

15. For Shine:

Bb. Prep
“Alternatively, I spray Bb. Prep on wet hair and twist it into a low bun for an hour or two for a great natural wave.”
Hairdresser's Invisible Oil
“Sometimes I use their Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil on the ends of my hair to detangle. It’s amazing, so you put in just a little and it makes it very silky.”

16. For Texture:

Leonor Greyl Paris - Serum De Soie Sublimateur - Light Conditioning, Frizz Control Styling Serum for...

“And I just discovered the Leonor Greyl Sérum De Soie Sublimateur that makes amazing texture. It’s like your hair turns to silk.”
