It’s that time of the year again when the biggest names in fashion gather in one spot to let their imagination run wild. Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2020 has officially begun and while fashion’s elite showed off their exquisite garments, we’re obsessing over the makeup looks. As usual, the runway was a place where creativity not only flowed through the outfits but hair and makeup as well.
From glitter lips to subtle makeup to graphic eyes, here are our top makeup looks from Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2020 which are sure to dictate the beauty trends in the months to come.
Dior’s show at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2020 was all about paying homage to the female form. Inspired by feminism paired with a bit of Greek mythology, models who walked the runway embraced their inner goddess with blushed cheeks and double-winged eyeliners that had a hint of gold in between.
Since Chanel’s line at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2020 was inspired by Coco Chanel’s childhood convent school, the makeup was kept to the bare minimum. Models stunned as they walked out with their dewy skin and subtle taupe contouring around the eyes. Makeup artist Lucia Pica shared her secret to recreating this look. First, sculpt your eyes by blending in a mauve shade, followed by blending a brown shade to add more depth and finally add definition under the eyes with the same shade.
Ralph & Russo brought back the ‘80s at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2020 with bold pastel eyeshadow hues and candy pink lips. The models rocked teal, pink, and pale blue eyeshadow, brows brushed up and pink glossy lips.
Iris Van Herpen’s collection at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2020 was inspired by the human nervous system along with marine microorganisms. This was reflected not only in the outfits but the makeup as well. Models at the show sported facelift tape on the outer edges of their brows along with a mixture of pastel colours on the eyelids, brows, and cheekbones which made them look ethereal.
Alexis Mabille's all-white outfits and shimmery lips were a perfect match at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week 2020. The models stunned as they walked the runway with their intense glittery lips paired with a dramatic cat-eye. Makeup artist Angelo Rauseo revealed his secret to getting the glitter to stay on was by packing it on with a fluffy brush before the lipstick dried up.
