The runway scene is a perfect source of inspiration when it comes to new season makeup, so if you’re looking for new inspirational looks, take a peek at the fall 2012 runway makeup trends spotted at Paris Fashion Week. With the crème de la crème from the fashion industry unveiling their creation in Paris this week, the fresh off the runway makeup looks are definitely worth all of your attention.

Minimal Makeup


Minimal makeup looks are definitely a must have this upcoming season as when it comes to simplicity, there’s nothing else hotter; well, at least when it comes to makeup. The right touch of products applied lightly to conceal the imperfections of the skin and underline the beautiful structure of the face, no wonder that renowned labels such as Balmain, Chanel and Chloe opted for bare, minimal makeup looks to go along with their stunning fashion designs. A tiny amount of concealer, a touch of highlighter and a lip balm are all you need to obtain a fresh, youthful and ever-fabulous makeup style, so give it a shot and experience the power of minimalism.

Defined Eyelashes

Mascara is definitely the holy grail of your beauty kit this season as well defined eyelashes were seen everywhere from Dior to Valentino and Stella McCartney. The difference – a little bit of color, whether it’s black or packing a punch with a 70s vibe like Stella McCartney’s blue mascara look, is absolutely amazing, so dare to invest in a high quality mascara that will do wonders for your eyelashes. You can opt to subtly enhance your eyes with a bit of eyeshadow and make your facial features stand out with a bit of blush, so choose the options that work for you best.
