Here Are the Best Makeup and Hair Looks Spotted at Paris Couture Week SS20

Beauty moments to remember.

Paris Couture Week kicked off with luxury houses like Schiaparelli and Iris van Herpen showcasing glamorous designs for the season. Completing the looks are various styles of glam complete by big names including Pat McGrath, Sam McKnight and Erin Parsons. Makeup artists and hairstylists have once again created iconic moments, showing some of the upcoming trends this year.

While dewy skin was embellished with shiny jewels at Schiaparelli, iridescent shades accentuated Iris van Herpen’s three-dimensional pieces. Backstage at Dior, Peter Philips accented looks with winged eyeliner and golden shades to accompany elegant hairpieces, while models sported au naturel looks for Chanel. At Ronald van der Kemp, fierce styles dominated the runway with smokey eyes and bold red lips, while Clare Waight Keller‘s dreamy creations and Alexandre Vauthier‘s daring pieces took the runway with rosy and nude shades on a clean base.

For the Maison Margiela Artisanal collection made of upcycled materials, Pat McGrath added pops of color to the lips to match a pale, matte base. The makeup artist also went backstage at Valentino for dreamy, rosy cheeks doubling as eyeshadow, while Peter Philips focused on retro, doll-like lashes for Viktor & Rolf. Celebrating the designer’s final collection, Jean Paul Gaultier‘s runway was a combination of neutral looks and full-on glam with over-the-top eyeshadow.

Maison Margiela

The fight against waste and overconsumption was the central theme of John Galliano‘s latest collection for Maison Margiela. Complementing garments made of upcycled materials were bright, neon-colored lipstick shades matching a pale, matte complexion.

Valentino

This season, Pierpaolo Piccioli presented a range of colorful and structured looks for Valentino. With colors like purple, mint and red highlighting the collection, rosy blush was key to makeup looks, applied from the cheekbones all the way to the temples.

Viktor & Rolf

Showing yet another Couture collection with recycled fabrics and swatches, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren created a range of youthful patchworked items. At the show’s backstage, Peter Philips dressed models in big doll-style retro lashes with Dior’s Lash Maximizer and Pump & Volume Mascara, while adding fake tattoos all over.

Jean Paul Gaultier

For his final Couture collection, Jean Paul Gaultier enlisted a star-studded cast including Karlie Kloss, Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid and Winnie Harlow. Erin Parsons showcased a variety of beauty looks for the runway, including strong eyeliner and eyeshadow as well as bold red lipstick.

Schiaparelli

For his second couture show for the house, Daniel Roseberry took inspiration from Elsa Schiaparelli herself, embracing the idea of putting extreme concepts together. With the inventive tailored looks were bold accessories paired with sleek hair pulled back and natural, dewy makeup.

Iris van Herpen

Focusing on the idea of movement, Iris van Herpen once again created innovative designs including a laser-cut corset with pleated sleeves that could extend to a billowing silhouette. Wearing the collection inspired by the designer’s past experience as a dancer, models took the runway in clean, smooth looks complete with iridescent highlighter applied throughout the entire face, along with wavy strands of hair fixed to the top of their head.

Dior

With a powerful “What if women ruled the world?” statement taking over the backdrop, Maria Grazia Chiuri incorporated the worship of goddesses and the struggle of women with inspirations from her visit to Rome. With golden shades dominating the collection, Peter Philips opted for a double-winged eyeliner look along with a hint of sparkly gold atop a clean, natural base.

Chanel

Transforming Paris’ Grand Palais into a romantic garden of Aubazine where Gabrielle Chanel spent her childhood, Virginie Viard presented a collection of soft pastel skirts, suit jackets, dresses and more. Complementing these summer-friendly outfits were clean bob cuts or long sleek hair with deep eyeshadow shades and subtle contouring.

Ronald van der Kemp

Ronald van der Kemp’s runway was filled with chic looks featuring strong colors like red, yellow and black. Matching these looks were voluminous hair brushed back, along with eye-catching, black smokey eyes and glossy red lips.

Givenchy

Clare Waight Keller looked back to the time she visited the garden rooms of Sissinghurst House by Vita Sackville-West along with love letters between Vita and Virginia Woolf to create a poetic and romantic collection. With top models like Kaia Gerber, Sora Choi and Adut Akech on the runway, makeup and hair were all about looking neutral, natural and clean.

Alexandre Vauthier

Featuring various silhouettes and shapes with ’80s-style power shoulders and tailored fits, Alexandre Vauthier’s presentation was a mix of rebellious disco vibes and elegant looks. Models’ hairstyles were left unpolished and natural, while brows were brushed up for a subtly powerful feel.
