Unfortunately, it's not always wholly practical to flounce around in the couture dresses the Dauphin favoured, but we can certainly draw aspects of her look for the every day. The makeup worn in the 17th century court seems to be all about the rouge and lipstick, and I reckon it makes a refreshing change from focusing on your eyes! Apply petal pink blusher lavishly to the apples of your cheeks and a dark, matte cerise lipstick for a royal, Gallic look. Whilst nail varnish wasn't round back then, Marie certainly seems keen on her pastels, so I think she would adore candy colours to make her nails look like mini-macaroons. With all that spare time on her hands, she no doubt had an decadent beauty routine involving plenty of parfum. As for her royal tresses, she liked them high, powdered and extravagantly decorated.
