Stuck in a beauty rut? Looking for some fresh and new makeup looks to try? Lucky for us (and you), Paris Fashion Week brought its A-game backstage in the beauty trends sphere! Get ready for some magie française (French magic) beauty inspiration!
The stand-out moments? Bare but glossy lips are going to be BIG, learn to love your lilac eyeshadow and glitter isn’t going anywhere (as if it ever was).
All that glitters and glows
Not sure which glitter makeup look to go with for your next festival? Take a page out of the beauty book from Giambattista Valli and just sprinkle it all over. Hands down the most Instagrammed look from PFW. And we’re low-key obsessed!
Lashes for days
Valentino did away with liner altogether, opting for long and fan-like false lashes instead. The glossy lip, however, remained. Lesson? Keep your trusted gloss with you at all times.
A brush of brown
The top lips at Masha Ma stole the show with a brown matte look. In contrast with the left-alone bottom lip, you could truly see the power of this punchy colour. A boss girl shade that’ll make your peers jealous.
Givenchy drew us in with glowing skin, but we stayed for the dramatic black and coated lashes.
Blush in all the right places
It was all about rose tones at Chanel, with blush extended to the temple and brow bone. A slightly darker and glossier pink was applied to the lips.
Little liner and wet lips
At Dior, it was all about less is more with a simple stroke of black liner across the top and bottom lids – sans mascara. Lips were also left bare with nothing but a hydrated glow.
Balmain brought the no-makeup makeup goods with a fresh-faced complexion we could only dream of waking up with. Cheeks were flushed with a natural peachy tone, eyes tight lined using brown eyeliner, and the lips were coated in a wet-look gloss.
Bang bang bold red
No French fashion week would be complete without a bold red lip, and they don’t get much bolder than the one at Shiatzy Chen. Ooh, la la!
The eyeshadow didn’t stop ’til it hit a brushed-up brow at Jour/Ne. Colours ranged from bold reds to pastel blues, but the real show-stopper was the lilac lids.
Crimped and cat-eyed
When predictions leant towards crimped hair being a big trend for 2018, even we had our doubts. But after seeing this bouncy creation at Sonia Rykiel, we’re now convinced. We’re getting serious Batman vibes with the cat eye!
