Paris Beauty Trends

Here are some of my favorite looks from the Paris shows.

At Dior Pat McGrath designed a minimal polished look with nicely groomed eyebrows, mascara on upper & lower lashes, and shadow to emphasize the crease in the eyelid.

Isabel Marant - the queen of cool had very natural looking makeup with lightly textured hair.  Makeup artist Karem Herman created a California sun kissed glow using lots of bronzer and a little color on the lips.

Jean Paul Gaultier's hair  by Guido Palau had a "graffiti stripe" with long extensions.  The makeup by Stephane Marais has a "fucked up beauty" quality created with liquid eyeliner and greasepaint.

For Stella McCartney Pat McGrath used a brilliant cobalt blue mascara.

At Givenchy Pat McGrath created a Goth look by using burgundy around the the eyes and a deep mulberry lipstick.

Now is the time to add some colored mascara to your own makeup bag.  A little while ago I bought Benefit's Bad Gal in Plum and Buxom's Blue Noir.
