Best Paris Fashion Week S/S 2012 Trends


It was a mix of looks at Paris Fashion Week but this much we know, stick-on eye liner, eye brows and eyelashes are big, wearing lots of color on either your lips or lids is a must, and a clean, bare face will work for any occasion.  We recap the beauty trends from Paris to watch for this spring.

1. Eye Accessories

Stick-on eye enhancements were all over the runways, and whether you try out this look for Halloween or for everyday, just remember to experiment. Eye liner made from MINX nails perched over eyes at Gareth Pugh, intricate eyebrows were covered in paint at Manish Arora, and at Viktor & Rolf hot pink paper was cut out into eye liner shapes and stuck on to eyes with hot pink mascara coating lashes.

2. Regal Hair Pieces

The hair pieces that walked the runway were a necessary edition to the entire outfit and were entirely wearable in real life. YSL's wet look buns wrapped in gold hardware could be worn out to a dinner, Chanel's hair pearls are a little daring, but would certainly be interesting, and if you feel like being a princess for a day, take example from the pretty tiaras that walked the runway at Louis Vuitton.

3. Red Lips

A bold red lip is a classic French favorite and appears every season, just like the tweed Chanel blazer. Tomato red pouts stalked the runway at Yves Saint Laurent, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Dior, proving that a timeless look will never go out of style.
