Christian Dior shows never fail to impress me with their creative and bold makeup. And at the Couture 2011 show, they took things to a whole new level with 37 different beauty looks that feature color-blocking cat eyes, jewel-toned smoky eyes, bejeweled 3d eye makeup and lips that range from deep burgundy to lacquered tomato red. Can we just say loves?
With the Spring 2011 Haute Couture Season at a wrap, let’s review some of my favorite beauty looks.
Featuring a gorgeous collection of dresses in muted mauve, peach, rose, teal and beige, the Ellie Saab Spring 2010 Haute Couture collection has some of the prettiest pieces for spring. Plus the soft, glowy makeup along with the braided half updos are just *beautiful*!
Inspired by Moctezuma the Aztec emperor along with Avatar’s tribal-eco message, the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2010 Haute Couture collection is full of colors, huge hats, braids, leaves and even feather. While I can’t picture anyone actually wearing the over-the-top collection, the colorful, tribal makeup is definitely something that I like (and they used my favorite MAC pigments to create this look too!)
Contrary to what you would expect for spring, the look is all about the “strong, erotic phase of Parisian women” at the Givenchy Spring 2010 Haute Couture show. To go with the heavily embellished 70s inspired collection, models’ eyebrows were faded till almost non-existent while a dramatic glittery smoky eye was paired with a bright red lip.
