Beauty trends spotted at Paris Fashion Week

A triumph of superficial lips, mermaid skin and smart hair from morning till night

Beauty trends spotted at Paris Fashion Week A triumph of superficial lips, mermaid skin and smart hair from morning till night

Paris officially marks the end of the long marathon of fashion week, where designers presented their collections for SS24. What did we learn? A lot, especially in the beauty department, with ideas to try out immediately. To keep up with the trends on the catwalk, accessorise with glitter, bold lipsticks and 2000s-style hair accessories.

Focus on the lips, the absolute protagonists

At Dior, make-up artist Peter Philips created a dark effect on the mouth by applying a blackberry shade only in the centre, which then faded slightly to the outside and edges. Red and velvety lipstick for Alexander McQueen and Saint Laurent, complemented by a sensual smokey eye, while Chloé, Akris and Undercover chose red and lush. Lips like rosebuds triumphed at Balmain and Giambattista Valli, with a dewy finish. Mouths were extraordinary at Vivienne Westwood, where lipstick was applied by make-up artist Isamaya Ffrench directly to the models' faces wrapped in fabric.

Hair is worn styled

At Schiaparelli, hairstylist Guido Palau created couture tails, low and tied with a black ribbon, starting at the forehead. Similarly, but more dishevelled, the hairstyle at The Row looks as if it has just come out of bed, thanks to a deconstructed tricorne tied at the tips with a bow, also black. At Chanel, on the other hand, the accessory of the season is a headband with a maxi bow in satin on slightly wavy hair with a luminous texture. Givenchy, on the other hand, brought an accessory from the 2000s back to the catwalk: the zig-zag headband that let's wear our hair back without making it too frizzy. Boyish and wet, with a full side parting, on the other hand, was the hairstyle to try, according to Loewe and Miu Miu.

Flashes go silver

On face and body, like mermaids. Make-up artist Diane Kendal used a blendable silver pencil on the lower lash line and cupid's bow for Rabanne, which serves as a point of light. A dot of light also appears on the nude faces of the models who walked the Valentino fashion show, more dramatically on the faces of the Schiaparelli models and all over the body for Etam. Lunar cheekbones also on Victoria/Thomas.

Doll-effect eyes

Victoria Beckham took inspiration from ballerinas for the looks, creating dramatic lashes that are split in clumps in both the upper and lower rhyme, adding imperceptible extensions when needed. At Dries Van Noten, on the other hand, the look becomes feathery thanks to an application of coloured false lashes that start in the centre of the eye and literally fly outwards. Edgy dolls also at Courrèges, with extended eyeliner, but only along the lower edge. Finally, Marni plays with the watercolour look.
