Paris Couture Week is nothing short of a masterclass in extravagance. The embroidery! The tulle! The crystal-covered robot cradled like a baby! Though the exquisite fashion is the main event, we can’t help but be enamoured with the beauty looks, too. Whether breathtaking because of its ethereal elements like Chanel or for its whimsical artistry, like the Pat McGrath-created looks at Maison Margiela, there is plenty to inspire. Here are MOJEH‘s favourite beauty looks from the Paris Couture Week runways.

In-keeping with the alien, out-of-this-world theme at Schiaparelli, models’ brows were bleached, while the rest of the look remained sleek. Slicked-back buns, glossy skin and nude lashes were the name of the beauty game.

The Maison’s signature dreamy approach of plump, youthful-looking skin and just-pinched cheeks complemented an ultra-feminine Haute Couture collection, all tied together with a pretty black bow.

Celebrated makeup artist Pat McGrath transformed Maison Margiela’s models into doll-like figures in a play on the ‘glass skin’ makeup trend. Skin was coated in a super-shiny glaze to replicate the smooth, shiny surface of glass, while brows were redrawn in pencil-thin arches and jewel tones, pastels and sultry shadows adorned eyelids.


The natural beauty approach at Valentino perfectly complemented Pierpaolo Piccioli’s kaleidoscopic collection; complexions were boosted with a dewy glow and lips were kept bare, save for a swipe of red lipstick for some.

Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Makeup, created a doe-eyed look that is both dreamy and dramatic. “It is a two-step eye look, emphasised by a strong smokey liner on the lower lash line and brightened by a light shade on the eyelid,” explains Philips. In addition to a glossy complexion and hydrated lips, a delicate black ribbon was added to the hair for a feminine touch.

Graphic winged liner and 60s-inspired backcombed hair mirrored the collection’s central theme of nostalgia, offering a playful take on the makeup of bygone era Beirut.

Though beauty lovers may proceed with caution when it comes to XXL lashes for fear of being picked up by a strong breeze, Giambattista Valli showed no such restraint. Extra-long feathered lashes added drama to a pared-back complexion, while large-and-in-charge bows were added to hair for the finishing touch.
