Paris fashion week: Spring beauty trends

Paris fashion week: Spring beauty trends

| On 08, Oct 2013

Ooh-la-la, if you join me in being an avid Instagram follower of Cara and Miranda, you’ll also be green with envy from watching the world’s most beautiful humans gallivant around the city of love during Paris Fashion Week: Spring 2014.

I thought I would take a few, of what I thought to be the standout shows, from PFW to bring you all the trends in make-up and beauty. From barely-there nude tones to bedazzled brows and metallic mesh headpieces, they’ve given us plenty of ideas to experiment with in the bedroom (and a few which perhaps should stay in the bedroom).

The trend: minimal make up

Here’s something to ease us in. I’m pretty sure we can all master this one at home without too much effort… in fact, with barely any effort at all!

For those of you who love nothing more than a bright lip and a smoky eye, I’m right there with you. But I do think we should take note of stylish sisters, Dakota and Elle and how they’re bringing it back to basics. In the Fanning sisters, we trust.

By sticking to nude and earthy tones with just a touch of blush, some well-placed highlighter and a clear gloss, these doe-eyed babes look fresh, natural and radiant.

Check out the shows by Chloé, Balmain and Valentino for some min-spiration.

The trend: strong brows

Everyone loves a strong brow.

Sure, they’ve been circling around for a while, but I think we can all now take this as personal reassurance from Louis Vuitton that bold brows are not going anywhere any time soon.

Talk to a professional to make sure you invest in a proper brush (and know how to use it) as well as finding a colour that’s right for you and your skin tone.

The trend: all gold everything

As they say, gold will never get old.

While the metallic gold overload at Paris fashion week may seem overwhelming, finding little ways to incorporate this trend into make-up for a night out could be just what you need to spice up your look.

Try using a metallic gold liquid liner and lining your upper lid over the top of your black liner. Or if you’re feeling even more daring, try out metallic gold mascara by applying after you’ve put on your black mascara just to the tops of your upper lashes. While you’re batting eyelashes at a cute boy, he’ll be seeing bright flashes of gold as you blink.

The trend: bold statements

The world is still talking about Chanel’s rainbow eye and Givenchy’s bedazzled face masks… and for good reason.

I’m not quite ready to try these ones out myself but I still can’t seem to turn away.

Give me all of the shiny things!
