The world’s fashion capital—Paris took last week to celebrate haute couture fashion in the name of Paris Couture Week 2019, which concluded yesterday. While the couture week showcased some chic, oh-so lux collections that left us swooning, the highlight of the week remained the OTT beauty looks that were all about dramatic headgear, hair accessories, crystal makeup and all things glitter!
We tracked and kept a close watch on all the beauty looks that unfolded at the PCW 2019 to bring to you the best...
- Shimmer swipe
- Tinted brows
- Colour-blocked blushadow
- Eyes, XL
- Braided hair and lots of glitter
- Hair, big on pearls
It’s settled! Glitter eye makeup isn’t going anywhere any time soon. While we spotted a monochrome glitter lids at the Valentino runway, Jean Paul Gaultier debuted iridescent eyes with glitter in multi shades. And, TBH, we are in love.
After frosty lashes on the Spring Summer runways, we spotted white tinted brows at the Celia Kritharioti that gave us major snow queen vibes. Another unmissable brow trend was served by Dundas where models were seen in blue hued brows and took our breath away.
Peter Dundas’s runway always has had a penchant for showcasing colour-blocked makeup and this time too we saw model sporting a beautiful rainbow-filtered blushadow with hints of blue, green, pink and orange. This makeup scheme truly matched the vivid collection the designer presented.
If we had to sum up eye makeup at the Paris Couture Week in one word, we would say ‘extreme’. From extended wing at Chanel to elongated lash line at Georgio Armani Privé to OTT 80’s eye makeup at the Viktor & Rolf, it was all about maximalist eye looks. And, they were all mesmer‘eyes’ing.
Braided hair and lots of glitter
Schiaparelli’s eccentric collection and jewellery was teamed with shimmer lips and dewy skin but what totally blew us away was the intricately braided hair covered in specks and specks of glitter. Safe to say, there is no such thing as too much glitter in the beauty world.
Hair, big on pearls
At Ralph & Russo’s show, it was all about sculpted hair set in beautiful pear hair accessories. From pearl studded headbands to pearl chains wrapping the detailed hairdos, these hair looks gave us some serious bridal hair inspiration to steal from.
