Lots of inspiration came from the Paris catwalks last week. Hair and makeup artists have doubled down on their creativity to complement the designer’s vision and offer new ways to wear graphic eyeliner, sleek ponytails and bold lipstick. Here’s a hair and makeup roundup for next spring, or now.
- Chanel’s new ponytail
On the Chanel runway, the length was slicked back and secured in a low ponytail with a logo-patterned metal barrette. It was elegant without being over the top. It was elegant and effortless.
- Miu Miu skinny headband
At Miu Miu, she wore a thin headband with clean sides and a very soft length.
- Louis Vuitton smoky lash line
At the Louis Vuitton show, he accentuated his cheekbones with highlighter to highlight his smooth skin, accented with a smoky black halo that covered his lash line. A simple pencil smudge is all it takes to recreate it.
- Zimmerman Extra Long Hair
At the Zimmermann show, the length of all textures fell to the waist in a bohemian-chic romantic style created by stylist Damien Boacino.
- Valentino Micro Fringes
To offset the colorful aspect of the collection, Valentino’s hairstyle, created by Guido Palau, was boxy and severe. Next spring, micro bangs will make a comeback to perfectly frame the face. Perhaps.
- Givenchy Bleached Brows
In keeping with the naturalistic elements of the Givenchy show, minimalist makeup focuses on the theme of transparency. Makeup artist Lucia Pieroni coated her lashes with 1960s-style mascara and bleached her eyebrows to make her eyes more defined.
- The pure beauty of Victoria Beckham
At the designer’s first show in Paris, Victoria Beckham channeled the spirit of French beauty with a no-makeup makeup effect. Makeup artist Diane Kendall’s moist lip, the subtle strategic hint gloss, the “raised” eyebrows accentuated her seemingly bare complexion. Duffy’s made-up hair was stroked as if she had been shaken and finger-combed at the end of the shower.
- Vivienne Westwood’s new wet hair
Wet hair may be the norm this season, but stylist Charlie Le Mindu took the trend to a new level at the Vivienne Westwood show. Wet and set with a strong hold gel.
