The sleekest beauty looks from Paris Haute Couture Week FW18

Up the contrast

It's time to retire the cake face of the Insta-verse, because Haute Couture Week’s best makeup looks are a masterclass in stark minimalism

Intentionally making one feature (or two) stand out while everything else remains relatively untouched seems to be the beauty direction we're veering towards. Case in point, the bare faces paraded up and down at the Dior haute couture show — not to mention the fashion house cemented the look with an entire makeup range dedicated to the essentials of backstage makeup.

More than just the comeback of barely there beauty though, we're seeing an edginess switching up the usual formula with either textures or a graphic bent adding a touch of flair. Think of this as the no makeup makeup look version 2.0. From the creative re-purposing of eyeshadow and eyeliner to a watercolour lip stain, here's how to embrace modern minimalist facepaint.
