The Godefroy Beauty Guide to the Clean Girl Aesthetic
The “Clean Girl” aesthetic is the latest it girl trend. This aesthetic has been trending for months now on social media sites such as TikTok and Instagram, and even though it gained popularity in 2022, people are still all about clean girl! Here is what you need to know: the Clean Girl aesthetic focuses on enhancing your natural beauty, with minimal products and effortless, fast looking results. Key components to this look include feathered eyebrows, slick, pulled back hair, and minimal eye makeup. All women can achieve this look, by making their natural beauty and bare features the star of the show. A small amount of makeup products can sometimes be used to help achieve this look. We are going to show you how to accomplish all of this: The Godefroy way.
A popular technique used to achieve full, fluffy eyebrows often seen in the “Clean Girl” aesthetic is through eyebrow tinting. Contrary to using traditional eyebrow pencils, Godefroy's semi-permanent eyebrow tint provides flawless brows that won’t smudge, no matter what kind of lifestyle you have. Say goodbye to the hassle that comes with eyebrow pencils and gels. Godefroy offers 5 different buildable shades from: light ash brown, light brown, medium brown dark brown and finally black.
After tinting your eyebrows, brush the brow with a spoolie brush. By tinting your eyebrows and then going in with a spoolie brush, your brows will appear fuller, which is a staple when it comes to the Clean Girl aesthetic. The eyebrow spoolie brush achieves this by brushing the brow hairs up and outwards, which gives a more natural and fuller look.
Naturally, with a no makeup look, foundation and blush are kept to a minimum. The downside to this is your facial blemishes have nowhere to hide, however laying off the foundation can give your skin time to hydrate and recover. Having a great skincare routine becomes important to promote healthy, glowing skin.
The first step in determining your skincare routine is determining your overall skin type: oily, normal, or dry. Without getting into specific ingredients, soaps, alcohols, and exfoliants (be gentle with exfoliants) work best to wash off oily substances from your skin and pores. Oil based creams and droppers help prevent dry skin from shedding too much water off, especially in cold climates. Normal skin types typically experience both oily and dry symptoms based on external conditions, such as season, humidity, and washing habits. If your skin is more on the normal side, it is best to listen to your body and choose an oil or soap based product for the situation at hand.
This only scratches the surface on skincare routines, however we will be working on a complete, in depth guide later this year.
Another key component to the clean girl look is pulled back hair. This can either be a low bun, ponytail, or pulled back into a claw clip. For those of us with colored hair, you know the struggle of your roots beginning to peak through again. And with your hair slicked back, there is no way in hiding them! A solution to this could be Godefroy's Hair Color Kit, to color over your stubborn natural roots, ensuring flawless looking hair that is all one color. This product comes with 20 mini color capsules. There are also 6 different shades to choose from.
The clean girl aesthetic can easily be achieved with or without mascara. But, we recommend using a lightweight tint or gel for your lashes, so that you don’t have to worry about applying mascara. Our Tint & Curl can be used for curling your lashes and holding them in place, while darkening them at the same time. You can also use this product on your eyebrows, as a tinted gel. You would just apply the product onto your brows using a spoolie, ensuring that they do not move out of place throughout the day.
The great thing about this product is that if you choose to use it for your lashes or eyebrow hairs (or both!) it will not feel heavy or weighed down. Tint & Curl, along with all of our products, contain 0 synthetic dyes. They are made with 100% natural ingredients only.
Still feel like your lashes need an extra boost? Try using an eyelash curler. Lift your lashes to the next level with the Permacurl Pro Heated Eyelash Curler to help achieve the Clean Girl look. This eyelash curler differs from others due to its warming station, which will help to lift and shape your lashes without damaging them. This tool is essential when you are rocking your natural lashes, or even if you are prepping for mascara or falsies. With our newly launched pro heated eyelash curler, it is easier than ever to get beautifully lifted lashes, giving a fuller look without the need of mascara.
All these tips combined will help you achieve the Clean Girl look!
By this point, you have almost achieved the perfect look! If you feel like your makeup routine is missing something, try exfoliating and applying a tinted moisturizer beforehand. You could also use a tinted ChapStick and a light amount of blush.
