Paris Fashion Week S/S 13 Make Up Trends

3 Oct

chanel icy blue eyesTHE TREND: ICY BLUE


If I imagine a Chanel woman, it’s someone elegant and daring, pretty yet icily aloof. The metallic ice blues and silvers used in the eye make-up at the Grand Palais show translated this perfectly. This is definitely a trend everyone can get involved with, even if you only use the colour on the lid and under the eyes, rather than right up to the brow bone. On a personal note I love the fact the glacial colour is teamed with strong black eyeliner, because I feel naked without it! Maybelline’s Colour Tattoo 24 Hour Cream Gel shadows would be perfect for recreating this eyeshadow –  they do great silver and blue shades that last for ages.

louis-vuitton-beehives-and-bows-beautyTHE TREND: BEEHIVES AND BOWS


Against a bright chequerboard of colour, the Louis Vuitton hair team evoked a swinging sixties feel with cute updos, side-swept fringes and pretty bows tied around the head. These are not the big, garish bows as popularised by Gaga, Minnie Mouse et al., but a more refined version that remind me of chic French schoolgirls and Blair off Gossip Girl. Creating the perfect beehive can be tricky, but Company have a great step by step here.

dior-full-on-eyeshadowTHE TREND: FULL ON COLOUR


Not one for the faint-hearted, this striking look from Dior features colour-blocked, embellished eyelids in bright, bold colours. A great one for the fashion fearless out there to try – for the rest of us losers, a crazy shade of eyeliner from Barry M might have to be our homage to the look.

Balmain Catwalk - Paris Fashion WeekTHE TREND: DISHEVELLED CHIC


The idea behind many catwalk hairstyles was simple – create a perfect do, then muss it up a bit. Braids were also huge – at Balmain we saw both trends combined in a swept-back, low key but pretty look. To recreate this, loosely scrape the hair back and plait it, then pull out a few wispy strands and fix with hairspray. Simple!

rochas-bright-lipTHE TREND: LUSCIOUS LIPS


I am a huge fan of a punchy lip colour, so don’t need any persuading to embrace the bright lip trend as seen on the Rochas catwalk. However I’m not so sure I can cope with the make-up free eyes – maybe a slick of mascara to complement my vibrant lip colour and I’ll be happy! Revlon Super Luscious Lipstick in Fire & Ice is a good one for this.
