We’ve already raved about the cool beauty looks at New York Fashion Week Fall 2020, but that still leaves three fashion capitals and a whole lot of inspo. So we went back and looked through countless shows to see which makeup strategies really paid off in London, Milan and Paris. And while our forum members may not have loved the clothes sent down certain runways, the makeup was a different story. So which looks really stood out?
The Eyes Have It
The models at Giambattista Valli rocked crystal accents around their peepers, while Simone Rocha’s representatives received broken foil highlights in a variety of metallic colors. Floating eyeliner proved popular for more minimalist approaches. And a lot of makeup artists opted to embrace the two-tone trend when it came to eyeshadow and eyeliner.
While red lips will never go out of style, this season artists favored unexpected shades and plenty of sparkle. Models’ puckers at GCDS Fall 2020 were painted in flashy foil colors. Yohji Yamamoto’s cast was treated to diffused lips painted both gray and black for an unfinished effect. Over at Fendi, blurred plum lipstick really made a statement.
See the slideshow above to discover the best makeup looks from London to Paris. While the majority of the inspo won’t really work in the real world, the Fall 2020 shows did offer several more restrained looks you can totally pull off (preferably on weekends).
