Runway Makeup: Paris Fall 2009 Haute Couture Fashion Week Makeup Recap

The Paris Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2009 Fashion Week has finally come to a wrap and below are some of my favorite looks.

Super thick winged out eyeliner + nude face = Fierce.

Christian Dior
Dior is at it again with its colorful and dramatic makeup.

Jean Paul Gaultier
This is my favorite and *so* perfect for fall. Love the chocolate eyeshadow and crimson lips!

Armani Privé
And for a change, fresh-faced models with dark hair, strong brows, flushed cheeks and just a tint of color on the lips.
