Haute Couture generally conjures images of dazzling and daring fashion and style that remains absurdly inimitable. You can flick through magazines and daydream your way into runway mode but the looks wouldn’t translate to a typical gal’s work or weekend wardrobe.
Yet this Fall 2016 Show did offer us some beauty looks we can definitely emulate. Interesting takes on old looks and relaxed reinventions that can work well on anyone.
We’ve collected together the most wearable looks of Fall Couture 2016.
1. High Feline Flick
Spotted at the Elie Saab show, this furtive flick is not actually on the eyelid, but drawn above the crease.
To copy this cat eye, first prepare your foundation base with , Make Up For Ever Ultra Invisible Cover Foundation, ($41), concealer, Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer,( $28) and powder, Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder, $38) for a matte finish. To draw your cat eye just above the creaseYou need a black liquid liner with a fine point, we recommend, Lancome Artliner Precision Point Eyeliner in Noir ($30.50) Complete the look with a matte berry lipstick (Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick in Made It, $21).
2. Messy Ballerina Bun
The Atelier Versace show presented a classy yet casual ballerina bun that sits in the middle of the head. Combining elegance and ease.
Use a Sephora Collection Gloss Dual Boar Paddle Bristle Brush, ($22) to lift your hair back into a ponytail, securing with a hair band. Then twist your hair into a bun. Secure with bobby pins. Now gently release few strands of hair from the bun and carefully fluff up the sides to relax it a little. Top off with a fine mist of hairspray, Living Proof Flex Shaping Hairspray, ($25).
3. Lower Lash Line Flick
The Dior show offered more feline inspired eyes, with each model being give an individual look. We reckon this one is on to a winner for evening occasions.
First up prepare your skin with Cover FX Natural Finish Oil-Free Foundation, ($40) and apply Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Coverage Concealer, ($28) to any blemishes or imperfections. To create the flick, you need a black liquid eyeliner, we recommend, Kat Von D Tattoo Eyeliner in Trooper at $19. Draw a sweeping shape from the inner corner on the lower lash line to the outer corner. The tail of the flick should extend out to almost meet your eyebrow. Then use a brow pencil such as Bobbi Brown Brow Pencil, ($26) to lift your eyebrows.
