Best Hair and Makeup from the Spring 2011 Couture Shows


Every season I look forward to the couture shows from Paris. The looks are always mesmerizing and this season is no different, especially on the beauty front. The hair and makeup were as much works as art as the clothes that made their way down the runway.

The hair team at Jean Paul Gaultier Couture get my vote for best tresses.  The models donned mohawks with pin curls, cornrows, and pompadours.

Makeup artist Pat McGrath focused on the eyes for the Christian Dior couture show. show. She covered the models’ lids in lime green, aqua and lilac hues and thick black winged liner and false lashes.

It was all about the purple at Armani Prive. Makeup artist Linda Cantello started out by lining the ladies lips with a purple liner, painted on a deep purple pigment and then placed a single blue rhinestone on the left side of the bottom lip.

While I love these looks for the runway, I doubt would attempt any of them in real life. I am, however, pretty conservative when it comes to hair and makeup. What about you? Would you dare to wear these runway looks?
