From beautiful braids to slicked-back ‘dos and from super-simple skin to high-shine drama, the most memorable beauty moments of Paris Fashion Week are just waiting to be discovered in Savoir Flair’s roundup, below.
Beautifully romantic but with a modern twist, Valentino’s decadent beauty look took us back to a bygone era of grace and natural femininity. Pairing Pat McGrath’s signature simple, flawless skin with a bold red lip and loose, thickly textured braid created by Guido Palau, it made for a magical beauty moment.
Over at Elie Saab, it was disco vibes aplenty, with models strutting down a glittery runway as though they were grooving back in the Studio 54 days. Of course, Tom Pecheux was on call to create a “party face” – a soft but heavily applied cat-eye flick with silver highlight on the inner corners of the eyes.
Don’t be fooled by the front of Dior’s beauty look because, although the makeup was kept super simple with a focus on radiant and glowing skin, it’s the back that played the leading role. Created by Guido Palau, the look saw tight braids work their way towards a twisted topknot, resulting in a stunning hairstyle that stole the show.
Givenchy’s gorgeous girls boasted hair so glossy that it was like a mirror reflection thanks to Guido Palau’s slicked, high-shine ‘dos. Makeup was kept minimal to let the locks do all the talking, creating a futuristic yet feminine feel.
Bringing a burst of brightness to the Paris runways, it was all about the red, red, and more red at Kenzo. Makeup artist Lynsey Alexander used MAC’s ‘Rooby Woo’ lip pencil and the ‘Retro Matte’ lip color before finishing the lip look with a high-shine ‘Lip Glass’ finish. Bright-red pigment was used to create a bold blush effect, with the product placed high on the outer corners of the cheekbones and blended into the brow bone and corners of the eyes.
