To add to their fairytale themed couture show, makeup artists created a soft and subtle look. Lips were the key stand out as each model was encrusted with a bright, bold lip with shimmering red jewels. The eyes held a metallic shadow finished with a flick of black eye liner whilst the rest of the face was left dewy, natural and flawless, in order to draw the attention to the key aspects of the look - the lips. Nails were also minimal as the palest of pink palette was used. Hair was styled in a pixie crop with the wet look trend coming in play.
With a history of incredible looks during Couture Fashion Week, Chanel had to pull something big out the bag, and they certainly didn't disappoint! The eyes were quite obviously the key element for this show as a deep metallic black covered the entire lid of the eye and lined the bottom to then have mesh eyelashes applied to both the upper and lower lashes. A smeared smudge effect finished the look, along with feather lash lines below the eye to mimic the model crying. Unsurprisingly, lips and nails were left as a pink natural shade, and skin looked faultless. To soften the look, hair was styled in a pretty, wavy up do.
Once again all the attention was on the eyes in a smoky black shade along with neon green eye liner on the inner and outer corners. The smoky look was gently softened by perfect skin and pale pink lips and nails. Hair was left natural at the bottom but slicked back at the top to showcase the 'wet' look trend.
Giorgio Armani Prive
The wet look was seen again as it was also the style for the models hair at Giorgio Armani Prive but this time it was seen to be shiny yet slick. By twisting the hair back on itself, the hair swept over the forehead in a sweeping fringe style. Lips were seen to be a bold matte red shade, whilst a black graphic line was created on the crease of the eye lid. For the skin, makeup artists opted for a flawless dewy complexion.
Possibly the most natural look at Couture Fashion Week was seen at Giambattista Valli as models 'barely there' makeup was chic and pretty. With brushed up brows and dewy skin this is looking to be the easiest makeup trend to follow this season. Lips were particulary natural also, as a light shimmering pink shade was applied. Adding to the natural look was the model hair styled in roughly parted centre parting, whilst the hair was left in a soft, natural and wavy look.
Stéphane Rolland added to the long list of shows that had models with dewy skin (take note). A flawless look was created alongside black lined eyes on the top and bottom. Hair was centred in a middle parting leading into a low updo at the back of the head.
Hair was placed in a centre parting, leading into delicate plaits, with loose strands to create a soft, natural and relaxed look. The remaining hair was placed into a low messy bun to add to the hassle free yet beautiful look. Like Giambattista Valli, makeup was left minimal and pretty with creamy complexions, whilst lips were seen to be the palest of pinks and lightly contoured eyes. Brushed up brows and romantic long lashes completed the look.
Jean Paul Gaultier
With eyes being the key centre piece, models at Jean Paul Gaultier were seen to have a slick black smudged eyeliner and extra long eyebrows. Silver jewels were placed in the inner corners of the eyes along with one placed on the left cheek between the lips and the nose. Lips were pretty in pink and skin was left flawless and natural. A glossy deep metallic red was the colour palette for the models nails. It came to no surprise that the extravagant and complicated hairstyle was out as it is Couture! A plait starting at the nape of the neck going upwards started the hairstyle, followed by an extra large amount of volume on the top of the head leading into another plait hanging loosely down the back of the head.
