We’re only three days into Paris Fashion Week, but already we’re pretty pleased with what we’re seeing. While the “all or nothing” makeup trend (where brands are showing either a completely bare face or really over-the-top makeup) is still going strong, Paris collections have also brought about some pretty interesting eye makeup.
While the majority of models at Christian Dior sported a kohl-lined lower rim, a select few were painted with magic marker-like streaks from around the side of their eyes out to their temples. Scattered amongst the bare faces and navy-lined lips at Maison Margiela were a few hand-drawn, dripping graphic teardrops emerging from one eye. Models at Dries Van Noten received a bold swipe of black pigment across their lids, directing all attention upward. And, last but not least, the girls at Rochas wore a graphic cat eye, featuring a triangular, hollowed-out wingtip.
What does this all mean? That, come next spring, we’ll be getting pretty creative with our eyeliners.
Take a closer look at the best runway eyes of Paris Fashion Week so far, below.
