Freckles, Flowers & Glitter: The Most Interesting Makeups From Fashion Weeks

Paris Fashion Week has come to an end today, which means it's time to take stock. Trends vary from city to city, but they all have one thing in common: a choice of play and fun over naturalness. The last point is rethought as best they can, playing with natural materials in unnatural conditions, forging a "natural" look in such a way that the artificiality is obvious. The lines become sloppy, the proportions are distorted (sometimes extremely), there are a lot of colors - according to the spring-summer tradition. In general, once again we are reminded that the exterior is the canvas for your inner artist.

Experiments with eyebrows

A few years ago, everyone agreed that eyebrows are one of the most important parts of a beauty image. The result is an incredible variety of options for what you can do with them. The totalitarian fashion for wide natural growth is gradually losing momentum - it is likely that more trends will appear in the next couple of seasons. Makeup artists are seriously interested in highlighting eyebrows: this approach can be seen in makeup at the Max Mara, Matty Bovan, Rick Owens and Maison Martin Margiela shows. The face takes on an alien look, and the bright colors framing the eyes look even more impressive. Another eye-catching bow was shown by Rochas: natural eyebrows, indicated by a thin black line at the top.

Wet hair

Styles that imitate wet hair flashed almost everywhere. In New York, they could be seen at the Hood by Air, Thakoon and Altuzarra shows, in London on the catwalk, beach waves were seen at Julien Macdonald, and with a thick layer of gel at Versus Versace and Christopher Kane. Hair can be collected in high hairstyles, left loose, licked in one direction until it is absolutely smooth, or make a careless mop without fear of overdoing it with styling products. "Wet" onions of the next season are more likely about a downpour in the city than about beach volleyball - this is even more interesting.


You can use only one color, but which one. Light pastel lips rhymed with eyeliner on the lower eyelid at Thom Brown, at the Anna Sui show, models came out with wine shadows, MAC makeup artists did a great job with blush at Adam Selman, using them for sculpting, and in Paris, similar makeup was at the Fenty x Puma show. When choosing a make-up, Kenzo settled on the current red color - you can once again see how beautiful it is. Laconicism reigned on many shows: make-up artists chose not just one color, but in general one single accent, the main thing - quite noticeable. Issey Miyake, Vionnet (and many other places have increased interest in art elements) have drawings on their faces, Jason Wu and Olivier Theyskens have red lipstick. The rest of the makeup was deliberately left as neutral as possible.

Glitter on the lips

The trend set by Pat McGrath has been mastered by every self-respecting makeup artist and beauty blogger - now it is a world heritage. Sequined lips were shown at Fendi: Peter Philips suggested a less graphic and more grungy version in golden-bronze tones. Pat herself did a make-up with her own Lust 004 set for the DKNY show, again getting applause. It seems that this is the case when the fashionable technique is fixed even with just a pair of catwalk looks. Shining lip makeup is already popular enough - now it will be interesting to see how it takes root in the fashion world.


Flowers in hair regularly appear in catwalk looks at many spring / summer shows, which is quite logical. In New York, everyone remembered the giant crowns from the Michael Costello show, and in Milan, incredibly beautiful flowers were worn by Dolce & Gabbana models. The most interesting relationship with plants is with MAC makeup artist Val Garland, who has done makeup with floral appliqués for the Preen by Thornton Bregazzi show. Perfect makeup for sunny days as it is: the best part is that everything else can be kept to a minimum.

Up eyes

The more casual and resourceful the better. Deliberate classic feline arrows accompanied Fendi's shiny lips, Marchesa showed makeup with a silver liner on the lower eyelid, laconic and black lines were drawn at the 3.1 Phillip Lim show. In the Altuzarra show, thickly applied dark shades were shaded, and a dark liner smeared within the bounds of decency was seen at Prabal Gurung and Elie Saab. Colored eyeliners are also here: a memorable version was shown in Paris at Haider Ackermann, and the most dramatic, with a wet shine under the eyes, at Christian Wijnants.

Painted freckles

This technique appeared on the catwalk less than others - and for makeup artists it is still more of a pampering, albeit a pleasant one. Natural-looking freckles were painted at the Jason Wu show, and in the makeup for Esteban Kortazar they were made sloppy and shiny. Undercover found a boring middle ground: a lot of brown dots scattered all over the face, in the company of tousled eyebrows. One of the finest catwalk parodies of the Holy Grail, called natural beauty.
