We don't need to tell you that along with the clothes on the catwalk, fashion week also gives us some serious beauty inspo. A lot of the time, we get incredible tricks and hacks from behind-the-scenes at the shows, plus a look at all the new items that makeup artists have created (case in point: Pat McGrath's Versace look that debuted her new glittery lip kits). But there's also another source that we like to tap for some new makeup and hair ideas: the front row.
While we've loved the front row beauty looks at New York, London, and Milan, Paris has been a completely different style altogether and has given us some serious skincare and makeup inspo. Instead of anything extravagant or over-the-top, Paris Fashion Week has seen a completely pared-back style on the front row. From Kim Kardashian West going makeup-free at Balenciaga to French It girl Jeane Damas wearing nothing but a red lip, the minimal makeup look has been worn by every A-lister. The French capital, it seems, is where everyone shows off their impeccable skincare routines and how glowing their skin looks. Click through the gallery to see what we're talking about, plus see all our favourite beauty looks from New York, London, and Milan fashion weeks as well.
