The fact that at 69 a Frenchwoman looks 10-15 years younger is said as often as her courage (and capabilities) to wear skirts above the knee. How does she do it?
Brigitte Macron is older than her husband by a quarter of a century, and looks much younger than her age. Depending on the angle of the photo, the shooting conditions and the photographer’s professionalism, the visual difference can reach several decades. Madame Macron does not hide that appearance means a lot to her: “Of my own free will, I would never leave the house without styling and makeup — I just can’t do otherwise.” At the same time, she never discusses the daily beauty routine with the press, and it is almost impossible to find evidence of how she looked in her youth to draw any parallels today.
An indicator of the attitude of the French towards their first lady was the August issue of Elle (2017) with Brigitte Macron on the cover: the magazine’s sales instantly updated the ten-year sales record.
What is left for secular columnists and beauty editors to do? Of course, look at the photos and analyze. So, for example, Ross Perry, Doctor of aesthetic medicine and founder of the British beauty clinic Cosmedics Skin Clinics, considers Madame Macron’s appearance entirely due to her genetic data and efforts. Other experts — let’s leave their names and surnames in the annals of the French press — insist that Brigitte has systematically upgraded herself on the way to the status of the first lady of France, and today she has at least veneers, botox injections and even facelifts on her account.
One of the unconditional components of Brigitte’s young look is the way she dresses. Jeans and leather leggings, fitted jackets, skirts above the knee, and even a mini — Madame Macron prefers everything that is traditionally befitting a young girl, and not a woman whose age has passed 50 (for more information about the style of the presidential wife, see the article “How Brigitte Macron removed the taboo on mini-skirts and became a new different style France”).
It should also be noted that Macron looks especially relaxed and cute and stylish in casual slip-on trousers or jeans, quilted jackets and ordinary sneakers. But here the lion’s share of success lies in its beautiful form (or rather, forms).

Carefully discussing the parameters of the first French lady, fitness experts say that her figure is trained very harmoniously, which means that Brigitte does not abuse any types of exercises (we told more about symmetrical classes in the article “The Secret of Brigitte Macron’s slender legs”). Age-related weight loss in her case is organically compensated by a reasonable “physics” of the whole body. Brigitte keeps herself (and, accordingly, looks) in good shape and, most likely, prefers a protein diet. She also understands which parts of her body are most advantageous and tries to emphasize them (legs, waist, bust), while others, on the contrary, do not stick out and even hide (neck).
Short blonde hair (thick)
Brigitte (still Trenier) has gravitated to a short haircut since her teacher days.
Brigitte has not changed her chosen hair style for a long time: a short haircut and a shade of blonde. Her hair is dense, textured and voluminous (so voluminous that many of us will envy such a “size”). This moment raises the most questions, because it is known that after fifty and even earlier, the hair begins to actively thin and thin (we read “How the hair ages, and what to do with it”). There is an opinion that Brigitte is a fan of hair extension services. We do not share the beliefs of individual foreign colleagues and are sure that nature has really adequately rewarded the Frenchwoman with a hairline. The fact that it is natural, by the way, is indicated by the modifications of Madame Macron’s hairstyle, which, with full—fledged styling, represent a lush mop, and in its absence (or lack of time) “a modest, sleek head of hair.
Not the best experiments:
Stylists also unanimously repeat that Macron very successfully chose a haircut – a soft, modern bob, and not a strict, concise and classic (let’s call a spade a spade – an old-fashioned) haircut. The milled “torn” edges enliven the face and add freshness, sensuality and youth to the style, and the thinned elongated bangs are ideal for her age. A truly luxurious appearance of hair is a powerful visual anti–age factor of Emmanuel Macron’s wife (it is perhaps impossible to imagine how she would look with a lacquered helmet a la Jackie Kennedy).
Hair color is a supportive successful visual story. Brigitte, a natural blonde with blue eyes and light eyebrows, acts very competently, staying away from ash—white shades (with age they can look gray, thereby having the opposite effect of adding age). Her blonde is definitely achieved by skillful coloring by toning the base in a honey-caramel shade and highlighting individual strands in several shades. Deep multidimensional light hair color also works to rejuvenate the appearance.
Experiments with hair (they, by the way, often emphasize the versatility of coloring) are also not alien to the first lady of France.
Definitely, Madame Macron takes care of her skin. Is it hard to believe, considering the number of wrinkles that adorn her face? However, it is. Cosmetologists note, first of all, a good fullness of the oval of the face and a slight omission of tissues are the main indicators of competent anti–aging therapy. Brigitte has never admitted that she used the services of plastic surgeons (unlike, for example, Queen Letizia of Spain, we look at “How Letizia Ortiz has changed in 14 years next to Philip VI”).
It is impossible to say that Brigitte Macron looks “like a girl” or “a picture”, but for her age it is at least very, very good.
Beauty experts believe that aesthetic cosmetology — injections of fillers in the middle part of the face, blepharoplasty and even a thread lift of the oval — quite took place. Botox is also possible, from which wrinkles on the forehead are immediately smoothed out and eyebrows “fly apart” in surprise, making the look open, fresh and young. But even if professional cosmetology and surgical intervention was present, it was performed perfectly, and the client did not become, following the example of Hollywood actresses, his fanatical fan.
This is evidenced by a network of wrinkles in the corners of the eyes and creases near the mouth — a natural consequence of expressive and active facial expressions. At the same time, Brigitte has practically no “senile” furrows on her forehead and heavy nasolabial wrinkles. Finally, let’s say that some experts are confident in rhinoplasty, which is evidenced by the “thinned” back and allegedly changed nose wings.
Madame Macron prefers makeup with an emphasis on the eyes: as a blonde, she is afraid that light eyebrows and eyes will get lost on her face, so she emphasizes them intensely (sometimes too much).
A separate article, which is not as rare as we would like, on the contrary, throws Brigitte five extra years – an intense tan. The love of middle-aged and post-middle-aged Europeans for him, despite everything, defies logical justification: after 30, 40 and even 50, they adore roasting on the beach (including topless).
Brigitte Macron knows almost everything about tanning (the holidays of a couple in love in French Biarritz in August 2016 – publication of Paris Match magazine)
It is not known when and to what extent the future first lady of France became interested in tanning, but echoes of this affection are still heard. Thin tanned legs and arms look pretty even at the age of envy, but the face does not forgive such treatment.
The fact that Brigitte loves a tan is well illustrated by her photo with Rihanna, which clearly shows that the first lady of France and the singer have the same skin tone.
We tend to assume that, among other things, unlimited sunbathing led to rapid photo-aging of Brigitte’s facial skin, dryness and wrinkles. It is quite possible that Madame Macron, for security reasons, has long minimized insolation, but she is not able to give up bronzers and bronzing agents. Alas, this often plays a cruel joke on her: it’s enough to see how this “dark side” changes the Frenchwoman. We remind you that shimmering body oils will help perfectly emphasize a light natural tan and will not let you fall victim to heavy artillery in the form of bronzers.
This is what Brigitte looks like when she does not abuse bronzing blush and powder (here, however, punctures in the form of straw-colored hair and an expressionless suit range are obvious).
And here is the reverse side of tanning and bronze makeup in “field” (working) conditions.
Dentists at the British Dental Suite clinic believe that teeth are exactly the part of the appearance that Brigitte had to work on in tandem with doctors. They believe that her upper teeth were definitely protected by crowns or, more likely, veneers — they are perfectly smooth, smooth and white, compared to the lower row. “The teeth seem very young — there are no signs of color loss, chipping or any other age-related changes.
In fact, these are the smallest signs that, at a fleeting glance, are noticeable only to a professional and therefore do not catch the eye of the general public. But Madame Macron smiles very often (like her husband), so the desire to bring a smile to the ideal is quite understandable,” experts say.
