Whilst Fashion Week has officially ended, we’re still lusting after the beauty looks spotted on the runways in Paris. Not only does next season promise to be a seriously sparkly one, but it’s also inspiring us to embrace effortless, beachy beauty and experiment with liquid liner. Discover the three beauty trends that we’re dubbing Savoir Flair favorites and get inspired to switch up your look for the Spring/Summer 2019 season.
There’s no better way to convey all things spring/summer than with an effortless, beachy beauty look. No one took the theme quite as far as Chanel, which literally brought the beach to Paris with its seaside set – complete with sand, waves, and on-duty lifeguards clad in Chanel. Complementing the season’s straw hats and sun visors, hairstylist Sam McKnight created “rich, beach hair inspired by the 70s jet set” that saw hair unbrushed and loosely tonged into luxurious, undone waves.
Over at Altuzarra, makeup artist Tom Pecheux created sun-kissed, summery skin with a palette of peaches and bronze, while hairstylist Damien Boissinot swept hair back with wet-look waves to leave models looking like they’d just spent an afternoon on the sand. Similarly, Chloé brought boho, beachy vibes with windswept hair and simple skin, and softly tousled locks were teamed with nude, bronzed skin and a flush of color at Leonard – clearly it’s officially time to make waves and bring the seaside to your beauty look.
A touch of glitter on your eyes or a hint of sparkle on your skin is no longer going to cut it because, next season, glitter is being used in place of lipstick, liner, and hair color. Hairstylist Paul Hanlon got us wanting to dunk our heads in vats of the stuff thanks to the super sparkly look he created at Giambattista Valli, where locks were coated in shimmery color sprays before being dipped in pots of glitter pigments, resulting in some of the most whimsical manes we’ve seen this season.
Of course, no Fashion Week is complete without a glittery look from Pat McGrath. At Valentino, she adorned eyes with hand-applied Swarovski crystals alongside lips coated with a cherry-red glitter from her iconic ‘Lust 004 Kits’. The beauty rule for sparkle this season? Apply liberally.
If you can’t perfect the cat-eye flick or if liquid liner is the bane of your life, this trend might just change things. Why? Because liner is breaking all the beauty rules – and now you can get as graphic, artistic, or uneven as you like.
We saw all sorts of shapes and sizes of liner on the Paris runways, from the spiky, spider-esque look at Drome to the winged outline at Rochas and the curved block of black at Dries Van Noten. At Dior, Peter Philips used broad strokes of both the black and anthracite shades of the ‘Diorshow Pro Liner Waterproof’ liner to create an artistic look inspired by dancer and choreographer Sharon Eyal, prompting us to switch up our shapes and get creative.
