See the Hottest Beauty Trends from Paris Spring 2016 Fashion Week
Now here's what we call a beautiful fashion month finale if we've ever seen one. Paris Fashion Week came to a close today, leaving behind a gamut of covetable looks as well as some of the most daring hair and makeup moments we've seen all season. We put together a list of our favorite runway trends, ranging from graphic eye makeup and ROYGBIV makeup, to elegant floral accessories. Scroll down to see some of our favorite trends straight from Paris Fashion Week.
Rainbow Brite Makeup
While the Day-Glo looks at Yohji Yamamoto, Manish Arora, Issey Miyake, and Vivienne Westwood aren't the most wearable options off the runway, the effects were nothing short of bold and beautiful against each designer's lineup.
Forget your traditional cat-eye—makeup artists at Louis Vuitton, Atsuro Tayama, and Aganovich took the term "winging it" to a new level with exaggerated shapes and graphic flicks.
The feeling continued at Vionnet (center), where each model showcased an inky noir block of liner drawn across the entire eye. The effects at Thierry Mugler (left) and Julien David (right) proved to be slightly more subtle, with Mugler's girls concentrating the product on the inner and outer corners, and David's models working a traditional line capped off with a spherical shape in lieu of a wing.
Along with "no-makeup" makeup and "undone" hair, braids are a usual suspect every fashion week, but the romantic styles at Alexander McQueen (left) and Pascal Millet (right) gave us and our hair-themed Pinterest board inspiration for days. At Kenzo, strands were pulled back sleek paired with a low braid.
Red Lips and Haphazard Blush
Things got theatrical at Olympia Le-Tan and Hussein Chalayan, where models wore a statement-making red lip with pink blush blended across unexpected parts of the face.
These aren't your Easter pastels. The soft shadow, radiant blush, and petal-toned lips at Dior (left) and Rahul Mishra (right) went above and beyond the idea of looking pretty in pink, while a lavender eye was the focal point at Veronique Leroy's show.
Never did we ever think tiaras could be chic outside of senior prom until we saw models don them at Miu Miu (far left) and Saint Laurent Paris (far right). We especially loved the delicate headpieces at Moncler Gamme Rouge (center), which presented an elegant, non-Coachella way to work a flower crown.
Far from the cringe-worthy blue shadow stashed in your Caboodle back in the '90s, the bold hue got trendy at Giambattista Valli, where a graphic turquoise shape was painted above models' creases. Chanel's sky blue (center) perfectly complemented the airline-inspired collection, while Dries Van Noten's girls wore a strike of blue glitter positioned at the center of their lids.
