It's Paris Haute Couture Week and while the outfits are even further out of our reach (and budget) than the ready-to-wear shows, the beauty has been surprisingly attainable so far this season. Among them a matte red lip, smoky eye—that Pat McGrath claims you can totally do at home—and more than a couple of flicks of black liner. Keep scrolling for the best beauty looks from Paris Haute Couture Week.
Oh hey, Medusa! The strong brow and minimalist makeup let that gold snake headpiece do all the talking. We need one, stat!
Ah Jean Paul Gaultier. The show was '80s inspired to the max with the theme being Parisian nightclub Le Palace. Glossy lips, big hair and a brilliant punk rock edge.
Be still, our beating hearts! That hairband is everything. Find similar decorative headbands at Net-a-Porter.
Okay, so this starry brow detail and black glitter pout are not exactly right for an evening down at the pub, but if we could get away with it, we totally would.
Liner is having a moment at the couture shows (keep scrolling to see what we mean), and we kinda love this floating line at the Giorgio Armani Privé show. Get the look using Giorgio Armani Smooth Silk Eye Pencil (£20), which makeup artist Linda Cantello used on the models backstage.
We can't get enough of rust-hued eyes right now, and this is no exception. Re-create this look with Maybelline EyeStudio Colour Tattoo 24hr (£5) in And On Bronze.
This sultry smokey eye on Gigi Hadid is Pat McGrath's handiwork. She wanted the eye to look DIY, sort of lived-in and imperfect. To get the look, draw the cat-eye shape onto your eyes with a soft black pencil before applying a black eye gloss over the top and finishing with lashings of mascara.
Try MAC Studio Eye Gloss (£16) in Spank Me. The eye is the statement here so keep the rest of your makeup and your hair clean, simple and effortless.
This is definitely more couture, less everyday. While sticking individual gems to your parting may be a little too time consuming even ahead of a Saturday night out, you can re-create the look much quicker using Claire's Round Stone Hair Spinners (£7).
It appears to be a battle between eyes or lips vying for attention this season. While Dior singled out the lips, Ralph & Russo chose to focus on the eyes like Versace. A simple flick of black liner stopped a perfect complexion and pretty pink lip looking bland. We love the glitter ribbon headband.
Anyone else wondering whether the hair team really enjoyed the Star Wars comeback last year? This hair screams Princess Leia while the eyeliner has us conjuring another movie reference in our minds—Black Swan anyone?
