The best beauty looks of Paris Fashion Week FW20 On the catwalks, creative make-up and hairstyles are on the spotlight

From New York to Paris, the cycle of Women's Fall/Winter 2020 Fashion Weeks ended yesterday. During Paris Fashion Week, backstages were the reference point for anyone wishing to find beauty inspiration.

All this is possible thanks to the mastery of make up artists such as Pat McGrath, who recreates on the models of Valentino a graphic eyeliner as well as Peter Philips did for Dior. For Maison Margiela and Dries Van Noten catwalks, however, the choice falls on colors, but not monochromatic: color block effects and different shades of color are used.
Guido Palau's hairstyles are always the most appreciated, from the iconic Dior scarves used as a hair accessory, to the wet effect chosen for Valentino.

As for the previous editions of New York, London and Milan, also for Paris we have selected the best beauty looks, among unforgettable make-up and hairstyles, and a mini shopping guide to try to replicate them. Enjoy!



Valentino's beauty looks, created by the combo of legends Pat McGrath and Guido Palau, include a graphic eyeliner embellished with small "studs" in total black that illuminate the eyes, and very smooth and wet-effect hair worn on one side of the forehead. The jewels are bold and chunky, but very elegant, just like the whole look.

Also for Dior, Guido Palau is the artistic director for hairstyle and hair accessories: Guido chooses to use Dior monogram scarves to recreate different effects and hairstyles, such as the bandana and the headband. The make-up, created by Peter Philips, who applies a marked eyeliner on a bare base with slightly curved eyelashes, accentuating the 70s mood.

Once again the protagonist is PatMcGrath and her use of colors, with contrasting shades. Lavender and blue eyeshadow plus black eyeliner mixed with the orange texture of the eyebrows (colored eyebrows are one of the coolest trends of the year!) are the key looks. Eugene Souleiman alternates for the hairstyles slick hair with graphic details, masks, and headbands.

Also on the catwalk of Dries Van Noten the protagonist is the color, starting from Sam Knight's hairstyle, who applies colored feathers to the hairline, creating a colorful and '70s-inspired regrowth effect. Inge Grognard at the direction of make-up, chooses shaded eyeshadows above and below the eye in different shades and textures, and lipsticks that vary from red to burgundy.

Giambattista Valli's looks are glamorous and theatrical, the models look like gothic princesses: to a total nude make-up, some light points around the eyes are added by the make-up artist Ismaya Ffrench, who applied glitter to surround the eyes. Hairstyles are composed of hair accessories such as headbands, lace veils and jewel accessories.
