One word – simplicity. If you want to experiment with expressive makeup this could be the perfect move to start with.
All it takes is a precise, straight application of eyeliner at the crease of the eyes for a simple accent. The rest of the face should stay as natural as possible to avoid doll-like look. Although that was the intention for the Chanel show. floating liner really helped the futuristic theme take off at Chanel F/W 2017 show. Then again, at Tome and Thierry Mugler liner highlighted model’s natural beauty.

This season smokey eyes are messy and shimmery. They are not blended to perfection, so they carry more ’90s vibe than usual. And shimmer helps that imperfect style evolve to something elegant and romantic.
Imperfection is boring. We want to be unique and rebellious! – Tom Pecheux
- At Alberta Ferretti, smoky eyes got a revamp with bright red pressed into the center of the eyelid and the gold in the inner corner.
- The African inspired collections of Balmain brought a makeup palette of rich, warm colors, metallics, and ornate prints. Modern black smokey eyes with copper and platinum accents and negative space wings at the outer corner. Paired with lip jewelry and tight braids this was one badass beauty look that we will surely take inspiration from.
- For Elie Saab lead makeup artist Tom Pecheaux got inspiration from the ballet Giselle(Tom Pecheux also did makeup for Balmain) and created intense, dark eyes topped with multicolor glitter and created a mix of fairytale, ballet, and Broadway show.

If you don’t have time or nerve for perfecting lip line, you will love this one. Forget the lip pencil, as perfectly lined lips apparently are not a thing anymore. Lipstick was deliberately stained, smudged and diffused in its application on many shows this season.
There’s something modern and sexy about a blended take on the look.

Bottom falsies are officially part of haute couture now. Spidery and segmented, with loads of mascara and individual false lashes, or even faked with eyeliner and glitter, the options are endless.
