Couture Spring/Summer Collection

Yeah, yeah, we know — Julia Fox and Kanye West have hit the streets and front rows of Paris Haute Couture Week. But you know who else has? Models, decked out in the brightest and boldest beauty looks for all of the haute couture shows.

Some of the backstage makeup artists must have put Fox’s very divisive black eye shadow on their mood boards, since both the Stephane Rolland and Chanel shows featured smudgy, emo-esque eye makeup. (Chanel curiously sent a few models down its runway appearing as if they had black eyes, which drew reactions from many.) Others stayed away from the dark side, with Celia Kritharioti and Dior opting for lighter, more optimistic shades of bold white eyeliner.

Enough talk — inspiration awaits.

Celia Kritharioti: Matchy-Matchy Makeup

Power pink isn’t going anywhere in 2022. This time it’s paired with a dramatic, swoopy wing and inner-eye shadow. And if that wasn’t enough pink (note: the limit does not exist), models also got a flush of the prettiest ballet slipper hue on their lips as well.

Alexandre Vauthier: Side Bangs

This deeply parted, very 2008 look screams “It’s not a phase, Mom!” before stomping up the stairs and slamming the door. Like thick black eyeliner (more on that soon), it’s another example of the emo renaissance we’re seeing on runways. Vauthier softened it up a bit with coral lipstick.

Stephanie Rolland: Smudged Cat-Eye

Time to replenish your Q-tip supply. This straightforward cat-eye gets a rockstar upgrade with its smudgy finish. The rest of the makeup look is kept very simple and understated, with nothing to distract from the eyes.

Valentino: Feather Lids

Pierpaolo Piccioli is known for his dramatic and sculptural gowns, and that same point-of-view has come for our makeup bags, too. The feather lids are the main event here, but let’s not sleep on the perfect shade of plum lipstick to match.

Dior: White Eyeliner

Battle dark circles, no expensive serum necessary. Dior models looked perky and awake — no small feat for people who spend Fashion Month running around major cities to castings and runways. “I took up the theme of signature makeup with an ‘underliner,’ this time in a pure vivid white, sharp line,” says Peter Philips, creative and image director for Dior Makeup. The pro used Diorshow On Stage Liner #001 in Matte White and Diorshow Khol #009 in White Khol to get the look.

Louis Vuitton: Sequin Purple

Naomi Campbell herself flexed a sequin purple eye look, which was paired with just a touch of rose blush and clear glossy lips. Her extra-long, straight, and middle-parted hair brings all attention to the face.

Chanel: Black Swan 2.0

Because Black Swan eye makeup is not just reserved for Halloween costumes — or Julia Fox —  anymore.

Schiaparelli: Nod to Euphoria

Even Paris Fashion Week isn’t immune to the charms of Gen Z’s favorite teen drama. This silver, glitter-encrusted tear look is a real work of art, and beautifully contrasts against the gold hat brim. Unsurprisingly, makeup artist Pat McGrath was behind this creative look, using silver foil and Swarovski crystals for the tears.

Elie Saab: Shullets

Long, fantastical, red carpet gowns were paired with sleek ‘shullets’ (shag + mullet) and bottleneck bangs. For the uninitiated, bottleneck bangs are curtain bangs with a shorter section in the middle. You’ve probably seen the hairstyle all over TikTok, and now it’s on the runways, too.

Fendi: Crystal Freckles

Small crystals dotted the faces of Fendi models like second skin, and the face needed virtually no other adornments after that. Makeup was kept minimal, save for a soft pink lip and soft, feathered brows.
