At Couture – beauty was conceptual. Beauty was realized as an exploration of other-worlds. Fendi’s starry interpretation of beauty was made heroine whereas Valentino’s dramatic eyes were met with hyper-wings & feathery plumes. Hyperreal skin wouldn’t go amiss at Schiaparelli. These are the moments to not miss for Spring.
SCI-FI OTHERWORLDLINESS AT FENDI
The starry veil of a crystallized galaxy was mirrored as inspiration and dotted atop the face for Fendi. Fendi’s sci-fi realization of Spring beauty was crystal-clear & in thanks to hair artist Guido Palau & makeup artist Peter Philips. Deliciously glossed hair was kept parted & fringed via Palau. Made heroine, needless to say. Placed throughout the face were micro crystals to be the ultimate facial halo. No additional accessories required. To achieve this look? Dot a micro gem on the inner corners of the eyes or equally as shield across the lid for a look that’s just as otherworldly.
DIOR’S NEW LOOK
Dior’s love language for sooty, lived-in eyes were decidedly made anew for Spring. And it’s the eye trend that keeps lashes batting. The trend in question – underlined white liner, the hero beauty look. Think: the upside of sultry shadow. Thickly-lined white blocks graduated around the eye shape which emphasized it’s natural under line. To tightline the waterlines & roots of the lashes, MUA Peter Philips used the Diorshow Khôl pencil in 009 White Khôl which was then completed with the Diorshow On Stage Liner in 001 Matte White layered underneath the natural line. Gentle, soft-focus illumination informed the look.
HYPERREAL SKIN AT SCHIAPARELLI
Skin was standout at Schiaparelli. It was made surreal & secular through Dame Pat McGrath’s genius with glow. Cheekbones? It was a (golden-champagne) highlight. Eyes were maintained as clean with a touch of shadow to mattify the lids. Other looks included a heavier-hand with further shadow & bejewelled glam. Opt for the Skin Fetish Sublime Perfection Foundation and Sublime Perfection Concealer for runway-ready dewiness.
BEAUTIFIED EYES AT VALENTINO
Feathery plumage & ultra-extended graphic winged liner informed Valentino’s Haute beauty. Longingness is beautified through the bold looks as seen throughout. This echoed the emotionally-grounded collection as a (literal) extension of oneself. McGrath emphasized the strength of the upper lash line (either by way of feathers or hyper-winged liner). Glowing & fresh skin was a continuity paired with the lashed looks.
