Here we are, on the final fashion week hurdle in Paris; we're running out of things to wear (despite having packed enough for two weeks) and have consumed dangerous quantities of caffeine but nothing can weigh us down when Paris brings so much to the table.

It's the city that has the final say on the trends we'll be trying come spring (if not before, we're not ones to wait around) and today's crop of shows didn't disappoint.

Despite there being no colour (it is Paris after all, the pioneers of no-makeup-makeup) there were plenty of flawless, fresh and covetable make-up looks. Hair threw a tougher, grungier edge into the mix.

Here's my favourites from today…
First show of the day - Roland Mouret. ELLE favourite, Val Garland for Mac, created a 90's clubber make-up look, 'she's already been to one party, now she's on her way to the after party'. Key product: Mac Black Track Kohl Eyeliner on the top and bottom waterline and pushed into the top lash line.

Over on hair at Roland Mouret, Orlando Pita gave the models a steep side parting and swept the hair off their faces using five grips.

Backstage at Issey Miyake, Eugene Souleiman for Wella created this intricate french twits/tough girl faux Mohican. We need.

Just so pretty. Issey Miyake make-up was all about highlighting to create a fresh beauty with an opalescent finish on the models skin. We love this look courtesy of Alex Box for Mac.

Who doesn't love a low-slung pony? At Vanessa Bruno Eugene Souleiman used Wella Ocean Sprtiz (backstage staple) to get lived-in texture before sweeping it back into a super low pony. Weekend hair sorted.
