The PFW SS16 Look: Parisian Chic

Effortlessly cool style, flawless, luminous skin and achingly chic hair – Parisian style is globally coveted, making the star beauty looks of Spring/Summer 2016 at Paris Fashion Week more than welcome.

Fresh-faced and minimal make-up was the look du jour backstage at brands including Stella McCartney and Isabel Marant. Emulate this take on beauty courtesy of Lead Make-Up Artist for Isabel Marant, Lisa Butler, by keeping your focus on conditioning the skin for a flawless base to build on. Sensai Cellular Performance Lifting Radiance Concentrate is an ideal starting point for adding luminosity to your complexion. Amp up that luminosity as seen at Roland Mouret and Alexander McQueen with TOM FORD’s Skin Illuminating Powder Duo and a gentle outdoors-y flush of Guerlain Rose Aux Joues on the cheeks.

Barely-touched skin means eyes can take the lead. Beautiful brows featured everywhere; gently groom yours upwards with TOM FORD Brow Sculptor, or be bold and recreate Balmain’s strong brow with Charlotte Tilbury’s Brow Lift. Complete your look with a subtle pink shadow on the eyes as spotted at Christian Dior or with the gently smudged eyeliner seen at Chloé. 

And of course, the true way to channel that Parisian cool-girl nonchalance is all in the hair. Look to the likes of Sam McKnight for Isabel Marant and Eugene Souleiman for Chloé, who kept models’ hair natural, loose and slightly wavy. Simply wash hair with Christophe Robin Delicate Volumizing Shampoo before blow drying with a generous spritz of Philip Kingsley Curl Activator for hair that is enviably chic.
