Beauty Report - Couture Week Spring 2014

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

There is really nothing like couture fashion shows. The one of a kind pieces, the fantastical elements, the stunning work and looks – everything about it reads perfection. Along with masterpieces that walk down the runway, I always look forward to the creative beauty looks that pair with each collection.

As a fan of dramatic liner and a great smoky eye, I was pleased to see some of the looks incorporated my beauty faves. From lips to eyes and every beauty bit in between, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite looks at Paris Couture Week 

Makeup Artist Peter Phillips aimed for a look that not only stood out in with the lightness but was both elegant and couture. To achieve the sparkling and chic look, Peter kept the focus and radiance at the eyes and kept the face matte. I absolutely love the glittered line along the lower lash line and the major lashes. I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t love an extra coat of mascara. (Then again, that just may be the Queens girl in me!)

Giorgio Armani Prive
The eyes were dressed in a silvery grey smoky eye look. Additionally, eye were heavily rimed in a dark black kohl to frame the sulty and modern take on this traditional style. Keeping both the eyes and strong brows the focal point of the over look, skin was kept pale and matte.

Giambatista Valli
Oh the graphic liner! This season was all about drama and dramatic winged out liner for the Valli crew.  Makeup Artist Val Garland freshened up this simple yet statement making look by pairing the strong eye look with dewy skin. To finish the look, he coated models’ lips in a pretty, delicate nude tone.

Christian Dior

And while I loved the dramatic looks, there was something about Pat McGrath’s simple and beautifully classic beauty look that had me at the first take. While using minimal face products (powder, foundation, concealer), Pat enhanced eyes with a soft nude-toned brown and highlighted lips with bold color. Avoiding a harsh look with strong matte lipstick or color, Pat  lightly glided a bold, creamy red color onto selected models’ lips whilst others sported a sheer balm. This fresh look perfectly complimented the classic designs of the collection. 

Which looks are you loving this season?
