As the grand finale of fashion month, Paris Fashion Week never disappoints on sending hair and makeup moments down the runway that are just waiting to be recreated. At the Spring 2018 shows, Pat McGrath's negative space fuchsia lipstick and Lanvin's ribboned-ponytails are just a few of the looks that you need to see.
Here, we've rounded up the best beauty looks from PFW's Spring 2018 runways.

He accessorized the lashes by lining the waterline with Diorshow Kohl Black Kohl 099 ($33; dior.com).
