The 6 Best Beauty Looks From Paris Fashion Week (So Far)
Even for fashion aficionados, coverage of Paris' Haute Couture Fashion Week can be easy to brush aside—it's not like the vast majority of us can shop the runway, after all. That said, the week offers a dazzling amount of style inspiration from the street to the runway, and we for one can't get enough. (Our Pinterest boards are proof.) Beauty too, gets the bespoke treatment, with look after incredible look sashaying down the runway. As always, the best bit about hair and makeup trends is that anyone can copy them. Even if they don't have a hotline to Karl's atelier. In celebration of the best beauty of the week so far, we've pulled together our 6 favourite looks for your viewing pleasure.

Those who could take their eyes off the incredible set (and clothes) at Chanel, were rewarded with this artistic take on smudgy liner and lashes. Created by Tom Pecheux, a triangle-shaped liner was placed underneath the eyes then mirrored with custom-cut lashes. The hair also made a statement, with each model sporting sky-high formations of curls. The crowning touch? A black headband. We expect to see these popping up again soon.

We just about lost our minds when images of the bespoke liner looks at Dior (feat. Bella Hadid) started filtering through. If you're looking for an excuse to get graphic with your beloved gel liner, this is it. On the flipside, if you're still trying to master a basic cat-eye, this guide will help.

This show was a Byrdie favourite, not least for the dreamy lids that glistened softly as models walked the runway. The pretty but pared-back makeup was worn with simple ponytails that put the stunning garments on full display. The lesson: If you're wearing a statement ensemble, keep your beauty look simple.

Whether or not you're a fan of orange eyeshadow, Shiaparelli certainly proved it is possible to wear the shade and still look chic. (Even when worn washed around the entire eye—that's something.) To do the same, use a sparkle-free formula and go for a burnt (not fluoro) shade. We love Nars' Eyeshadow ($36) in Paprika. Then, check off the following; raw skin, pale lips, groomed brows, understated lashes.

Everything Pat McGrath touches turns to gold (in the case of her first-ever beauty product Gold 001, quite literally), so we weren't surprised one iota that the makeup look she created for Versace was spectacular. A combo of sky blue-striped lids and glittery lips gave the usually high glam show a cool-girl edge. According to McGrath's Insta, said sparkle-dusted lips were the product of a soon-to-be-released product. Watch this space.
