Hair and beauty at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week made just as much of an impact as the fashion and cleverly complemented the looks as a whole. Check out these related hair and beauty looks that could well provide you with the inspiration needed to recreate standout catwalk glamour for yourself.
A neutral palette made up of ‘clever contouring and highlighting for a youthful and illuminating look’ complete with subtle brown coated lashes and neatly groomed brows, complemented the fashion on show at Valentino, with wet-look waves loosely gathered by a strand of twisted hair cleverly adding to whole Grecian goddess vibe of the show.
Giorgio Armani Prive
Smokey eyes were the way forward at Armani with dark winged out eyes set against a paler than pale complexion for a full dramatic effect. Full straight brows and sheer red-stained lips co-ordinated perfectly with the red vibe of the show. Hair was loosely tied back into a neat chignon with a side-sweeping fringe that appropriately tied in with the work-wear through to evening feel of the collection.
Chanel hosted feline eyes with metallic colour across the lids, matt skin, well-groomed squared-off brows, pale pink lips and punk-inspired short hair styled in matt spiky quiffs. The hair and beauty succeeded in adding a further retro 80’s feel to the whole collection which really mixed things up in an ultra positive way.
Makeup was kept to a minimum with dark shades worn in place of eye makeup when on the catwalk and glossy dewy skin providing the focus. Lips were nude and matt in contrast to the high-shine base and hair was styled in low chignons accessorised with 1940’s inspired oversized headscarves.
Adhesive metallic liner allowed eyes to shine against luminous skin and peachy nude soft lip colour with natural groomed brows, for understated beauty, that did not distract from the clothes. Effortless natural hair hung loose with centre or side partings that appropriately complemented the whole understated beauty look.
The eye makeup at Chanel was as seductive as the clothes, with rich metallic teal winged shadow gracing the whole of the lid almost reaching a neatly groomed brow, with a slightly lighter hue at the centre to add depth. False lashes added even more impact and the base and lips were kept neutral with slight cheek contouring. Hair was slicked back into a classic ballerina bun with a difference, that being the poker straight tail that was styled at an angle away from the bun, for a hairstyle that tied in perfectly with the whole collection.
