Leave it up to the beauty teams at Paris Fashion Week to remind us that Halloween is rapidly approaching, and more importantly, that we need to come up with some costume that isn't a rip off of Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga or Katy Perry. Sorry, girls! Even your outlandish outfits have become a bit boring for a night of trick-or-treating.
And while we may use all of the next four weeks to design a ghoulish, yet glamorous getup, we can certainly take a cue from a few spring 2013 shows when it comes to channeling our inner child and wearing Crayola-like makeup.
For Gareth Pugh's Game of Thrones-meets-Hellraiser collection, models marched down the catwalk wearing crimson-colored lipstick and eyeshadow (which was applied in an exaggerated raccoon-eye shape). But it was the single teardrop that took this look to frightening proportions. The makeup artists backstage at Manish Arora stayed true to the designer's Indian roots and adorned the girls' eyes in bright layers of orange, green and purple shades, complementing their jeweled headpieces. Red-orange unibrows and fat crayon-esque strokes around the eyelids in black, blue and white ruled Cédric Charlier's runway. Yet, the paprika smokey eye makeup at Chloé seems like a great starting point for us all when coloring our faces come All Hallows' Eve.
