From bold bursts of blush to some seriously sparkly embellishments, discover the top makeup trends from the Spring/Summer 2018 shows at Paris Fashion Week in Savoir Flair’s roundup, below.

Barefaced Beauty

Season after season, barefaced beauties rock the runway with fresh faces and au naturel looks that inspire us to toss out our makeup bags and go sans slap – and Spring/Summer 2018 was no exception. In fact, the “no-makeup makeup” look was one of Paris Fashion Week’s biggest beauty trends and seen at numerous shows including Stella McCartney, Loewe, Balmain, and Giambattista Valli. To channel the look yourself, click here for our top tips on how to brave the barefaced beauty look.

Graphic Liner

Between the rainbow-colored eyes at Rahul Mishra and strong wing outlines at Rochas and John Galliano, it’s evidently time to ditch your classic cat-eye in favor of a fiercer look. Get inspired to experiment with your eyeliner by browsing through the best graphic-liner looks below.

Exaggerated Blush

If there’s one makeup product you need to invest in for next season, it’s blush. Rosy cheeks were all the rage on the Paris runways, with fabulous flushes seen at Carven, Isabel Marant, and Veronique Leroy. Whether you opt for a more subtle pop of pink inspired by Lemaire or full-on fuchsia reminiscent of the Valentino runway, it’s safe to say that, when it comes to applying your blusher, the more the merrier.

Embellishments

It’s time to dig out those old sticker books and put on your creative hat. From feathers at Fatima Lopes to sequin-studded eyes at Dries Van Noten and diamanté details at Manish Arora, embellishment was a big beauty buzzword backstage. If you’re feeling inspired, you can opt for a simple little sparkle à la Givenchy or gorgeous glittery lids like those at Jour/Né and Undercover.
