The runways of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week have provided a veritable feast of beauty inspo, but as guests began to arrive at the Valentino Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2019/2020 show on Wednesday, we couldn’t help but notice a recurring theme.
Looking like a literal Grecian goddess, the actress and founder of goop wore a glowy, rosy flush across her cheeks and the bridge of her nose, and opted for a peach gloss with a subtle shimmer finish.
The pop icon delivered an expert lesson on how to wear shimmer, strategically placing it on the fullest parts of her cheeks to give the effect of plump, youthful skin. Coupled with a pinky-nude blush and matching lip gloss, Celine was *literally* gleaming.
Naomi Campbell can do no wrong in our opinion and this tonal purple look is only further evidence of her genius. Rocking her signature purple lip liner, topped with a pink gloss and a lit-from-within glow, this look was perfect because of how decidedly understated it was.
Natalia is the queen of the ‘no makeup’ makeup look. The blink-and-you’ll-miss-it subtle flush of colour on her cheeks is positively cherubic. The model topped off the look with a swipe of dewy highlight across the apples of her cheeks, which let her natural rosy lips take centre stage with a coat of clear gloss.
Never one to shy away from the unexpected, the pop singer subtly decorated the tops of her cheekbones with a metallic bronze highlight and opted for a two-tone glossy ‘90s lip.
Channelling Ziggy Stardust, Amandla nailed a classic glam rock application of shimmery blush paired with a deep shade of pink to sculpt the dimensions of the face. Her heavily kohl-lined eyes took centre stage and she opted for a natural nude gloss to finish off the look.
