Shahnaz Loves Beauty

I am totally in love with the makeup from Paris Fashion Week AW16 its all about smokey eyes, gorgeous skin and bold lips. The women are totally glamourous which reflects the amazing fashion of the city. Glossy lips are definitely a big trend here with lots of nude lips floating around with some of the bold eyes or all out bold and smokey together.

Its all about the skin again in the shows but in these looks I have chosen not all of them are the usual dewy there is definitely some semi matt base happening here but skin is still perfect. Smokey eyes are definitely back in a big way for AW16 I love the look for Chanel that has taken the usual smokey eye and gone with something alternative. The eyes have been created using a template to create the dots up to the brown bone its very cool and a very modern look.

Love the simple brown eyes that has been winged out  at the Givenchy show paired with a flawless complexion. What makes it really modern is the bleached brows which looks really cool but obviously isn’t for everyone.

Loving the navy smokey eyes from the Ellie Saab created by Tom Pecheux and the nude lips. its definitely all about mascara at Paris fashion week to finish off the eyes.

Am totally obsessed with the Christian Dior look even though its really simple. The focus is on both the eyes and the lips with clumped lashes that creates a different dimension to the makeup and the glossy deep berry two tone lip that is lighter in the middle to make the lips pop. The brows look more natural so as not to take away from the makeup.

There is also a lot of simplicity in the makeup looks aswell with the fresh face models and subtle elements of makeup as seen in Giambattista Valli where makeup artist Val Garland created a simple silver glitter line along the brow bone. This is not an every day look but you can take the element of the glitter and wear on the lids to make it more wearable and keep the rest of the face really fresh.

The Saint Laurent look is the boldest of the looks with an 80’s style drama for the makeup. Serious black smokey eyes and a tomato red glossy lip. Skin is flawless and cheeks are contoured to really add structire to the face.


Totally love this dramatic look from the Kenzo show with an alternative take on the graphic eye making it more punk and a bit rock n roll and a touch of silver glitter on the inner eye.
