Leave it to the French to do 'beauty' so perfectly.
The skin looks polished but still dewy. The bold lip is confident while remaining fresh and clean. The pairing with the natural eyes and brows, accentuated by highlighter, cream shadow and probably brow mascara is sheer perfection. Even the pink eyeshadow around the whole eye glows in a subtle way. Nothing looks over done or Friday night ready, which is key for the work place.
