From Dior to Viktor & Rolf everyone incorporated body art to accentuate their designs. Models were seen with temporary tattoos on their faces, arms, and necks. With the theme of the year being rough and soft, couture designers wanted to give a twist to the ‘doll’ look hence the face and body tattoos come in the picture. If you’re sceptical about huge rustic tattoos than opts for the minimal ones seen in Dior shows. Those good-feeling and positive words tattoos like ‘love,’ ‘flower,’ or ‘peace are just what you need!
2. Pastel Eyeshadow
2020 is all about minimal feminine eye makeup looks. All big designers like Ralph & Russo, Marc Jacobs and more featured a glamorous collection of feathered gowns, soft flowy dresses, and feminine skirts. Most of the pieces were anchored in a pastel colour palette, such as teal, pink, and light green. You can try something similar by opting for pastel shades pale blue, pink to the lid and top of the eye look some soft glitters.
3. Neon Lips
Well, what is Paris Fashion Week without some drama, right?! This year’s show was all about the dramatic colourful lips. You would notice how top supermodels totally nailed the innovative colourful lip looks for Maison Margiela’s show. You too can pull a statement lips like that. Go for unconventional shades like orange, blue, green, and yellow and leave the rest of the face bare to highlight the lip!
4. Face Embellishments
This year’s Couture Week was extra special and emotional as Jean-Paul Gaultier held his final show after serving 50 years in fashion. The designer presented an array of looks that were inspired by his previous collections, and many of the beauty looks seen during the show were also throwbacks to the past. Only of the cult classic that made its comeback is face embellishments. Models like Bella and Gigi Hadid had metallic gold and silver glittered around their face. You can try sticking one or two studs at the corner of your eyes. It will give you an edgy-cool look.
5. Glitter Gloss
Glitters were seen all over Paris Fashion Week 2020! One of the highlights was adding glitters to the lips. Yes, it sounded crazy but the result is sparkling gorgeous! But are you wondering to get em gorgeous, intense glittery lip? The secret is to use edible glitter! All you need is a fluffy brush that can grab all the edible glitters. Edible glitters can stay put longer than normal glitters plus they’re also safe for you to eat!
6. Double-Wing Eyeliner
Why go for one wing when you can do two?! Yes, Dior’s couture show showed us how double wings are done (THEY NAILED IT!!) The Dior 2020 show was a tribute to women hence they took inspiration ancient Greece makeup to create a double-wing eyeliner look. The look is in fact much easier to do than it looks. Start off the liner from the inner corner to outer corner of the top of the lashes. Then, go on to do the same for the bottom lashes. Add a fleck of gold eyeshadow in between for that Greek goddess finish.
7. Pink Blushes
The Armani Prive’s Paris 2020 couture collection was an eclectic mix of textiles, prints, colours. The collection was the epitome of maximalist aesthetic that is, in turn, Armani opt for a no-makeup mostly pink mostly neutral look. This is one of the easiest looks to recreate. In of those lazy days, where you just don’t feel like adding any makeup you can just add a pop of neon pink around your cheek and under your eyes lip to make it more three-dimensional.
8. Frozen Brows
One of the standout in this year Couture Week is Designer Guo Pei. She is always known for making a statement, and this season she took it to the next level. The whole collection was inspired by the beautiful Himalayas and it certainly reflected that. The models had fake snow on their brows and upper lashes. You can do the fake snow by using light colour concealer through the hairs and then used lash glue to press them on. It’ll give you the impression of snow just delicately felt on your brows.
