Valentino, Christian Dior, Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Elie Saab, and Chanel were among the famous fashion houses to present collections during the spring 2012 haute couture shows in Paris. An array of exquisite, wow-worthy garments, luxurious makeup styles and appropriate hairstyles were spotted on the catwalks. Get your glam on taking a cue from the hottest couture spring 2012 beauty trends for spectacular, showstopping appearances.
Flaunt a fresh, flawless, no-makeup face trying the look spotted at Armani Privé with matte skin and natural lips. Invest in a tinted lotion to even out your skin tone, conceal your imperfections, apply some mascara and some lip gloss or lipstick in a color matching your lips. You can also apply a soft green eyeshadow over the eyelids. Keep the natural thickness of your eyebrows as seen at Giambattista Valli and avoid the over-plucked aspect. It’s all about radiance and healthy-looking skin!
Well, it is already a fact that just a stroke of eyeliner can indeed make a difference. Take for example the Elie Saab or the Christian Dior couture spring 2012 shows where a simple, classic line instantly glams up the overall look. If well applied, an eyeliner beautifully defines the eyes and besides it never goes out of style. Keep the rest of your makeup natural for maximum effect. Apply a line on the upper eyelid and wear it with an almost bare face. You can also try the punk-rock couture approach as seen at Jean Paul Gaultier with wide wings swoop and with fresh skin and nude lips. For special events, vamp up your makeup routine with a breathtaking smoky eye makeup as spotted at Chanel, Stephane Roll and Versace.
Try some of the hottest hairstyles seen on the Parisian catwalks and get ready to release your inner bombshell! Relaxed ‘dos seem to have dominated the runways with timeless ponytails and messy buns. Experiment and have fun with your styling trying a variety of uber-lovely styles! Go for a carefree look with a low ponytail as seen at Valentino or for a laid-back bun as spotted at Bouchra Jarrar or Armani Privé. On the other hand, you can also sport a perfectly slicked pony (Versace) or a whimsical tucked under version (Giambattista Valli).
