Heaps of frills, fistfuls of flowers and elaborate embellishment shone from the catwalks at Couture Fashion Week but the beauty looks - including punchy coral lips and eyes encircled in lashings of pretty peach shadow - really stole the show.More
Make-up artist Tom Pecheux (recently announced as Dior's Creative Director) fattened up the classic feline flick at Elie Saab for a look that oozed drama - but not too much. He expertly extended the jet black wing to mirror each models' natural brows and doubled up on thickness by scrawling across their lids. A touch of taupe lipstick to plump, et voila.
Dewy skin at sunset was the idea behind the understated yet utterly mesmerising beauty look at Giambattista. A dab of pearlescent shimmer in the centre of the eyelids caught the light whenever the models blinked and a dot in each corner gave the finished result an otherworldly radiance.
To mimic the effect, apply the Illamasqua Beyond Powder in OMG, £32 with a dampened brush so it looks more like skin.
