Hairstylist Guido Palau showed preference for slicked back hair, with a glossy sheen at Italian luxury brand Prada’s FW 21 presentation. Makeup expert Pat McGrath uses metallic and pastel tones on the models’ eyes. In a shimmering duality, one model donned silver on one eyelid and gold on the other.

The Palace of Versailles was not the only magical part of Dior’s Paris Fashion Week show. The dramatic half-complete smoky eyes by Peter Philips is a beauty look you could definitely try to recreate at home. Leaving the centre of the eyelid neutral, Philips uses Dior’s makeup line to accent the edges with a heavy black shadow.

Vivid beauty brows make an appearance on Altuzarra’s runway, under the hand of makeup artist Stevie Huynh. Shades of blue and orange top the models’ entire brow area, more concentrated in the centre, making it a true work of art.

At Paris Fashion Week, all eyes were on the glittering models of Coperni’s show. Makeup artist Fara Homidi used raw edged crystals to adorn the eyelids of models walking the ramp. Combined with the solid tones of Coperni’s FW21 clothes, Homidi’s “post pandemic glam” dazzles the runway.

Playful and eclectic eye makeup seems to be the flavour of the season at Paris Fashion Week. Makeup artist Helene Vasnier uses the models at Giambattista Valli’s show as her canvas to create looks in bright pinks, teal, neon, and metallic silver. Pearl headbands contrasted the colourful eyes to add a touch of old-world glamour.
