The beauty looks that come out of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week never disappoint, and this week's spring 2018 shows are case in point. Some of the looks are a bit out-there, granted, but a lot of them are seriously beautiful and make for great wedding or special-occasion beauty inspiration. For the looks that aren't—how can we put it?—wearable, use them to inspire a subtler take at home, or just look at them for what they are: gorgeous images of brilliantly artistic and whimsical makeup. Enjoy.
There is something quite mesmerising about this sumptuous, sheeny, rich-looking red lip. The flawless velvet complexion and silky hair complete the look.
How gorgeous is this floating metallic eye? We're also drawn to the feathers and jewels. (We realize we sound like magpies.)
We're going to go ahead and file this under "ultimate festival makeup inspiration." Coachella is coming up soon…
This bold blue lower lash line is so eye-catching. It's also right on trend with upside-down eyeliner, which we (and all the celebs) are still going crazy for.
IRL, you'd probably want to add mascara and blush to this look, but don't discount the glossy lid and highlighter. Avoid shimmer and instead opt for a clear balm highlighter like Ciaté Dewy Stix ($26).
Blush is back! While this makeup is gorgeous to look at, try pairing a pink blush (that's been blended into the apples of your cheeks) with your favorite red lipstick. The color contrast is stunning.
