Mathilde Thomas is the founder of Caudalie, the French beauty line that was inspired by the nutrient-rich vineyards of Bordeaux, and is headquartered in Paris. Just like her brand, Thomas has a certain French sensibility—you know, that one that's hard to name (aka that je ne sais quoi). She's warm, friendly, and knowledgeable while also keeping an air of effortlessness. C'est magnifique.
Here, she shares the five beauty products she considers to be critical to her routine. These must-have products prove her beauty savvy, since they include her brand's namesake tinted moisturizer, which in her words, makes her skin "look like me but better," along with a cult favorite pink blush, luxurious radiance pen, and an inky mascara that she says is "French women's favorite." Watch the full video above to see Thomas share all five of her favorite beauty products.
