Best Makeup Looks Fall 2017 Couture

 

The couture shows were a concoction of statement makeup, see Chanel, Valentino, Valli, Armani and Fendi compared to the minimalism of Rodarte, and Dior.

With so much going on with the collection, I loved how makeup artist Yadim kept the beauty look uncomplicated.

Chanel Resort 2018

Karl Lagerfeld transported Greece to the Grand Palais for the Chanel Resort collection this week. I loved the neutral tone colour palette accessorized with bright knee high grecian sandals. Lower winged liner that came to a point in the inner corner gave the girls a strong eye focus.

Plenty of Pink

I like pink although I don’t wear it often. On the runways and on the makeup counters there’s a celebration of rose, sorbet, salmon, cherry blossom, marshmallow, and fuchsia. Now is the time to embrace the shade, because pink is the colour of the season.

Best of Paris Fashion Week AW17

There is no doubt that Chanel had the most talked about show of the week, if not the entire season. The rocket ship was on another level! The makeup for the show had a decidedly mod feel with banana lines and lower lashes. Another show-stopper was Saint Laurent.
