If you’re bored of your usual makeup, then look no further than the Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2018 shows for some seriously bold beauty inspiration. We saw everything from glittered-up faces to neon mascara adorning the faces of models, paving the way for cool creativity amongst the rest of us. Read on to discover nine of our favorite beauty moments and get ready to break a couple of beauty rules.
It was all about matching makeup at Dior, where Peter Philips used the new ‘Diorshow On Stage Liner’ to define eyes with hot hues to match next season’s colorful shades. It’s officially time to swap out that black kohl.
When it comes to next season’s lip color, Maison Margeila made it clear that anything goes. Pouts were coated in everything from emerald green to bright blue and everything in between. Not forgetting Pat McGrath’s gorgeously glittery creation, of course, which was the sparkly star of the show.
Makeup artist Diane Kendal dusted gold leaf onto lids at Akris, making for some gorgeous golden glares that had a Grecian, goddess-y feel.
Over at Thom Browne, it was about gilded locks. Hairstylist Eugene Souleiman created a tight, twisted ‘do before spraying it gold to make for some mystical manes.
Your regular cat-eye won’t cut it next season as Saint Laurent set the standard for a seriously fierce feline flick. Backstage, Tom Pecheux created a graphic wing shape made even more dramatic with a touch of silver shadow dusted onto the inner corners of the eyes.
Dries Van Noten
Lashes were loaded with cool color at Dries Van Noten, where Peter Philips used a rainbow of hues including blue, yellow, red, and green to make peepers really pop.
Glitter has been one of the biggest beauty trends for the last couple of seasons, but this time around, Giambattista Valli turned things up a (very) big and (very) sparkly notch. Models’ faces were literally covered in glitter as Val Garland blew colorful flecks straight onto the skin.
The barely-there makeup at Louis Vuitton was brought to life with sporty stripes painted onto eyes. Block colors of red and blue were used to create graphic shapes, with no two looks being alike.
