Of anti-selfie makeup and the­atri­cal eyes on the ramp

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Lifestyle - RELAXNEWS

Paris is the Fash­ion Week most famed for its out-there beauty looks, and the ready-to-wear spring/sum­mer 2016 shows didn’t dis­ap­point. But amid the fa­cial beads and the scare­crow-style head­gear, there was ev­i­dence of some very per­ti­nent makeup trends. The sweet ro­man­tic: Spring al­ways calls for sweet­ness and light, and this was the mantra adopted at Chris­tian Dior, where the beauty look was fresh and an­gelic. The mod­els wore a dewy-fin­ish foun­da­tion with a dab of blusher bloom­ing high on the cheek­bone, with a smudge of pink-hued eye­shadow and an opaque, light pink lip. Eye­brows were left to do their own thing and lashes were un­coated for a vir­tu­ous aes- thetic. The trend was also taken up by Alexan­der McQueen, where blusher was once again one of the key in­gre­di­ents, matched with a soft coral lip colour. Louis Vuit­ton de­buted spiky the­atri­cal eye­lashes painted onto the skin above and be­low the eyes, a dra­matic twist on the trend. Dare to bare The nat­u­ral look was a big theme at New York Fash­ion Week, and it resur­faced again in Paris, with sev­eral de­sign­ers ton­ing things down for the ‘no-makeup’ look. Nearly-bare faces were seen at Stella McCart­ney and Is­abel Marant, who spoke of aim­ing for an ‘anti-selfie’ vibe. The fu­tur­is­tic eye Mai­son Margiela led the way with its funky, ab­stract forms painted onto the face in vi­brant colours, stretch­ing up to the tem­ple. Chanel opted for a pale blue washed across the en­tire eye area and Gi­ambat­tista Valli used glit­tery trans­fers for a disco-ready sparkle. Dries van Noten made the look more wearable, high­light­ing the eye­lids with a strip of shiny, me­tal­lic liner.
