Paris Fashion Week 2016 Beauty Looks

 

Phew! The hectic week that is known as Paris Fashion Week is finally over and done with. I haven’t been a part of the shows and runways but I definitely kept up with the news and am so in love with Chanel’s fishnet eyes. That said, this fall has many other interesting looks up its sleeve. Think sleek ponytails, bright eyeliners, the classic smouldering black smokey eye, glossy lids, dark sombre lips and specks of glitter. And if you may ask, yes, there are some which are definitely going to look great on you!

 

Thanks to Sarah at Popsugar (where all the pictures in this post are from), who made a comprehensive album of all the looks being strutted in style, I’m able to show you some wearable looks from the runway that you can try out.

 

1. The “Anne Hathaway”

I came up with the name for this one because the moment I saw this look, she was the one who immediately came to mind. This look is all about keeping the face barely-there, creating a bambi-eyed look with rosy lips. Some variations have bolder lip colours but the rest remains the same.

 

How you can get the look:

Apply concealor and foundation all over your face, and add some light blush on the cheekbones. Keep brows full, soft and natural by using a brow powder. Avoid eyeliner and lipliner but use lip balm to keep lips soft and plump. Finally, apply some rosy lip colour all over your lips. As for your hair, keep it the way it looks naturally. Some curves and waves would make it perfect.

 

2. The “Au Naturel”

At every Fashion Week, there are bound to be some runways that decide to keep things simple. This one’s no different, and a natural no-makeup, girl-next-door look is always suitable for day-to-day life. In fact, this is my very own everyday look.

 

How you can get the look:

Concealor and foundation are a must for a look such as this (of course, unless you don’t need it). Just like the previous look, only a small amount of blush is needed – keep to shades that are natural. A blush with slight shimmer or glow is fine. Your brows just need to be filled in slightly and kept neat. No eyeliner, mascara or eyeshadow is necessary, while lip balm is all you need. If you wish for a tinge of colour on your puckers, a tinted lip balm would do the trick. As for your hair, tie it up neatly into a pigtail or ponytail at the back. I absolutely adore Ellery’s take on tying the end with some string (see picture above) but if you attempt this, make sure it doesn’t come off easily.

 

3. The Smouldering Gaze

While a little more effort is needed here than the previous two, this is my favourite wearable look from Paris Fashion Week FW 2016. The slightly smokey lids give the eyes some definition, while the blending adds some mystery and class. Everything else is simple and natural enough for this to be a day look.

 

How you can get the look:

Fill your brows in short, defined strokes. Apply a dark brown or grey eyeshadow along the top lids and smudge upwards to create a soft look. Bobbi Brown has several eyeshadow palettes that can help you create this look, but I recommend the limited edition Nude on Nude eyeshadow palette for its neutral and chocolate brown shades. Under-eye concealor may not be needed, especially if you’re looking to line your bottom eyelids in a similar manner. Keep lips looking youthful by first polishing dead cells away and then adding some colour with a light pink lipstick. You can tie your hair back into a low ponytail or leave it tousled.

 

4. The Brazen French

I love this look and wear it on days when I don’t exactly have the time for eye makeup but desperately need some colour in my life, and when I will only entertain important conversations. It’s a look that speaks volumes about your mood. When worn with confidence, nothing else really matters.

 

How you can get the look:

Keep the rest of your face bare. Your brows don’t need to be bold – this isn’t Hollywood. Rather, keep them soft and romantic so you avoid looking fierce and aloof. Like the “Au Naturel” above, no eyeliner, mascara and eyeshadow is required. If you feel like your eyes are lacking something, just one eyeshadow in a coral shade will do. Finish the look with one bold red colour for your lips that not only matches your skin tone but is also long-lasting, doesn’t bleed and doesn’t smudge easily. For starters, I highly recommend Julie Hewett’s Belle Noir Lipstick. If you’re looking to splurge, check out Tom Ford’s Ruby Rush Lipstick from the matte range.

 

I hope this entry has helped to inspire you to try out something new for the coming months. And if you’re looking for something else to tickle your fancy, check out the rest of the beautiful looks from the runway on Popsugar!

 

Stay gorgeous,
