Top 5 Makeup Trends From Paris Fashion Week

As Paris Haute Couture Week comes to a finish, not all of our attention was just on the exquisite clothes, accessories, and shoes.

Fashion houses such as Chanel, Versace, and Christian Dior displayed a few different looks for spring, which you can try yourself at home. We have picked our top five makeup trends which are sure to look amazing on any complexion!

Glossy lips

Where: Christian Dior

The girls at Christian Dior let the clothes do the talking, by keeping the rest of their makeup relatively natural. Use a powder to lightly dust through your brows and create the illusion of body and shape with a slight arch. One of our favourite trends included a glossy lip which is super-easy to apply, and is very much low maintenance.

Coloured eyeliner

Where: Armani Privé

Following a previous piece we did which was all about coloured makeup, this trend was definitely a stand-out here at SHE SAID. Models were sent down the runway with subtle gold eyeliner which complimented glowing skin and untamed brows. Finish off the look with a pop of colour to the lips, and lashings of mascara.

Smokey eye

Where: Atelier Versace

You can always count on Donatella Versace to create a sexy, sensual look without going too over-the-top. The figure-hugging dresses looked amazing when paired with a classic smokey eye, and glossy lips. Don’t forget to add a pair of false lashes to make the look so much more dramatic for pictures.

Bright lip

Where: Chanel

A pop of colour is the best way to embrace the spring, and this season Chanel didn’t disappoint. Keep it simple on the eyes, and use a neutral shade to cover-up any dark circles. As for the lips, a blue-toned red is best since it makes your teeth appear white and shiny!

Contoured cheeks

Where: Valentino

Lastly at Valentino, models were prepped with chiseled cheekbones, and a bronzed complexion (looking like they just spent the day in St Tropez!). Use a thin contour brush to carve out those cheekbones, and use a matte bronzer since it will make the entire look feel natural and sun-kissed.
