My Favourite Makeup So Far at PFW...

Sunday 4 March 2012

This isn't going to be a trend post or particularly in depth, it's just a little 'mid-way through Paris Fashion Week' post since I've just spent ages on the Vogue website looking through some of the catwalk makeup from the shows so far! There are a couple of crackers :)

Ready to Wear A/W 2012/2013 Collections

Manish Arora

I love this colourful makeup from the Manish Arora show. It's fun and eccentric and I couldn't take my eyes off it! When I eventually managed to take a look at the clothes though, the makeup compliments them perfectly. The bold lip and the detail around the eyes are really striking, and a total step away from the many many minimalist makeup looks I've seen at Paris so far.

See by Chloe

How fantastic are the brows and contouring on this look at the See by Chloe runway?! The nude lip and eyes are in keeping with the pretty ubiquitous minimal makeup, but the defined brows make a statement, and are complimented rather than overpowered by the deep contouring. I absolutely love this, of all the simple makeup looks on the runway, I think this is my favourite.

Jean Paul Gaultier

Got to love a bit of rock chick-esque drama at Jean Paul Gaultier. The skin looked dewy and fresh, not too heavily powdered, and ensured that the smudgey, glossy black eyeshadow and liner look came across as effortlessly cool looking rather than too stylized or glamorous.

Barbara Bui

Catwalk aside, I think this is a beautiful makeup look, definitely something I plan to recreate for a night out in the near future! It's the gorgeous gold eye-makeup that really makes it, it instantly catches your eye without being too over the top or taking away from the lovely clothes on this runway. Another nice nude lip seen here too.

Tsumori Chisato

Getting a bit more dramatic again, this look from Tsumori Chisato is another favourite of mine. The graphic, squared off eyeliner and pretty pink lip are totally contrasting, but that's partly why it caught my eye. The clothes on this show were really fun, and something a bit different, so this makeup was a testament to that! I also loved the really defined brows on this look.

Christian Dior

This is another gorgeous look at Christian Dior, a bit softer and simpler than some of the Dior makeup over the past couple of years, but it certainly gets the thumbs up from me. A similar goldish eyeshadow to the Barbara Bui look can be seen here, but it's a tiny bit more smokey and a heavier look in terms of the cheek contouring, with a lovely shade of coral toned bronze on the back of the cheeks.

There are many more designers still to hit the runways with their Autumn/Winter collections in Paris over the next couple of days, so let's keep our eyes peeled for some more interesting Fashion Week makeup!
