How to Wear Haute Couture Beauty Looks Every Day
For many, the thought of haute couture instantly conjures up intimidating impressions of over-the-top glamour.
Fashion editors have tried to debunk these misconceptions by showing their readers that there is a place for haute couture in the ordinary girl’s life. Harper’s Bazaar even documented what spending 24 hours in a Giambattista Valli gown
Haute couture finds itself in the media spotlight once again with the recently concluded Paris couture shows. As one of fashion’s most awaited shows, all eyes were on the Chanel runway show which had the sartorial scene wondering, “What will Karl Lagerfeld do next?”
This year’s spring/summer haute couture show surprisingly channeled the classics. Dainty ribbons hung from on model’s shoulders, entire pieces were made from tweed, and veiled fascinators topped each model’s head. The whole affair was very Chanel and very French, a few media outlets said.

Glossy, Fuchsia Pink Lips
Kaia Gerber, daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford, took the spotlight when she opened the show. She, along with the other models, sported glossy pink lips that served as the focal point for the whole look. To get this, makeup artist Caroline de Maigret first applied Chanel’s Rouge Allure N°184 Incantevole on the lips, later lined it with a lip brush, and topped it off with Rouge Coco Gloss N°794 Poppea.
Rosy Pink Cheeks
A staple for the first half of the year, the pink blush gives off a youthful and fun glow. Chanel artists lightly brush dabbed Chanel’s Joues Contraste in Foschia Rose N°430 using the Chanel Les Pinceaux de Chanel contouring brush.
Most of the models who walked down the Chanel runway exhibited natural-looking, almost untouched brows. It took minimal effort to achieve this with only two products involved: the Chanel Stylo Sourcils waterproof pencil that lends the brows some color and the Chanel Le Gel Sourcils, a brow gel that thickens and sets the brows.
Chanel artists pulled off the unthinkable and matched blush with eyeshadow to create a monochromatic makeup look. The canvas was set with Chanel’s Ombre Premiere long-wear powder eyeshadow in Rose
