10 Hottest Paris Fashion Week Make Up Trends
Recreate the hottest makeup looks from Paris Fashion Week!
Every season has its’ own trends that everyone wants to be a part of. This fall, bold and dark makeup is a must-have for any fashionista. Dark makeup has a reputation for creating an edgy and unique look that the fashion industry cannot get enough of. However, the trick to pulling off dark makeup is to balance it out by keeping your other features very natural and fresh. By just playing up one feature, you’ll look runway-ready in no time! In addition to dark autumnal hues, bright pops of color and shimmering glitters graced the runway.
Whether you are drawn to dark shades or fluorescent colors, make sure your makeup captures your style. And don’t be afraid to get creative and to experiment. Makeup continues to evolve throughout the years – so, it’s not just a smoky eye anymore; it’s a shimmery or electric smoky eye!
These 10 fall makeup trends are inspired looks from Paris Fashion Week. Each designer introduced a trend that stayed consistent to their style, but was bold and current! Try out these looks and don’t forget to make them your own!
1. The Smoky Eye
The Smoky eye can be presented in various styles – it is about being creative! During Paris Fashion Week, Saint Laurent, Emanuel Ungaro, and Moschino creatively challenged the standard smoky eye. To recreate the looks, you can outline your eye with black eyeshadow ending it with a sharp edge, like a cat eye. Or, if you’re feeling risky add a little shimmer to your lid. To create a more smoldered look – just apply black shadow and liner and smudge it gently around your eye to create a softer, smoky look. If you are looking for affordable eyeshadow palettes – Target has a variety to choose from starting at $6.00 – $15.00!
2. Dark Pouts
Dark lipstick is making a comeback! It’s the perfect finishing touch as the weather cools down. To create these sassy looks, opt for a black, maroon or blue lipstick. But, be sure to choose a matte or metallic finish to keep your dark lips looking fashion-forward. Designers such as Rodarte, Christian Dior, and Marni applied these sophisticated colors to their models and they owned it! Own your own swoon-worthy dark lipsticks for as little as $6.00 – $12.00 online at NYX.
3. Eye Glitter
Glitter and sequin are no longer a makeup trend of the past. These shimmering products create a daring look that compliments the eye by giving it an added sparkle. The trick is to apply the product subtly, so it doesn’t look overdone. However, if you are looking to sport shimmery eyes at the next festival or concert, feel free to apply it a little heavier – you’ll be shining throughout the night! Burberry, Fausto Puglisi, and Giambattista Valli all covered the glittery, party-girl look at Paris Fashion week. Glitter can be hard to find, so try Sephora for $15.00 or at Claire’s for $7.00.
4. Fluorescent Pops
Brighten up your makeup with a pop of neon! This 80’s inspired makeup look can be applied using mascara, eyeliner or lipstick! Neon makeup will create a fun and colorful look, perfect for a night out with the girls! Marques’Almeida, Jeremy Scott, and MSGM revived this electrified neon makeup trend on the catwalk. Ebay has a great selection of neon beauty products starting at only $7.11!
5. Clumpy Lashes
Twiggy is a fashion icon that designers continue to admire in the industry. Her signature look is her clumpy coated lashes. What’s great about Twiggy’s lashes is that it is one fashion look you can wear anywhere, day or night. So, be the trendsetter for your classmates or colleagues! Apply mascara to both the upper and lower lashes to get the full effect. Carven and Nina Ricci sported this look flawlessly during Fashion Week. Get the Twiggy look at Maybelline for $7.77!
6. Silver Corners
Whether you have blue, green, or brown eyes, a touch of silver in the corners compliments any shade. Apply a tint of silver eyeshadow at the corner of your eye to soften and to illuminate your eye. This look can be worn casually or formally. If you want to wear it casually, apply it with eyeliner and mascara. To wear it formally, apply it with a neutral eyeshadow to create a level of elegance. This look was spotted at the Stella Mc Cartney and Giulietta shows. You can purchase silver eyeshadow in many eyeshadow palettes. Like this one, from Sephora ranging from $40.00 – $60.00.
7. Full Brows
It’s time to stop over plucking your eyebrows and let them grow! Thick and full brows are still in! Let them grow naturally because thick and full eyebrows are beautiful. So, if you’ve already got them naturally – flaunt them! A neat trick to keeping them looking clean is to use a mascara brush to lightly brush back your hairs to create a fuller effect. During Paris Fashion Week, designers such as Marc Jacobs and Tommy Hilfiger delivered this look.
8. High-Gloss Lips
Extra gloss was favored during Paris Fashion Week. Gloss plumps and outlines your lips to make them look more voluminous than ever. It also creates a sleek, smooth, shiny pout. Sport a high-shine lip-gloss for any and all occasions! Take a look at Max Mara, Christian Dior, and Peter Pilotto for inspiration. You can find affordable glosses from L’Oréal starting at $8.00 – $10.00.
9. Thick Eyeliner
Eyeliner is another versatile makeup staple. Thick liner is in, and a trend that looks great on anyone because it compliments the eye shape, no matter the liner color. Experiment with the finished look by lightly smudging the liner, creating a wing effect, or by applying an extra heavy line for a more dramatic feel. Liner was a huge focal point for Nicole Miller. Eyeliner should be rich in its color and long-lasting, so it’s recommended to buy it from a well-known brand such as MAC for $21.00, or Sephora starting at $14.00 – $25.00.
10. Soft, Rosy Cheeks
Put away your contouring kit and embrace your natural beauty! It’s time to enhance your natural features! Blush is back in the game and creating a soft, delicate finish to any look. Just apply it lightly with the stroke of your brush to the apple of your cheeks and continue to build the color until you get your desired shade. Designers preferred this look at Paris Fashion Week and if you’re unsure about giving up contouring then take a peek at Christian Dior. COVERGIRL has a number of great blushes to choose from starting at $5.00 – $10.00.
