Let’s face it: haute couture clothing isn’t always wearable. And at the Spring 2019 Haute Couture shows, the beauty looks also proved tricky. Headgear was everywhere (and not your typical fedora or winter-appropriate beanie), flowers decorated faces and heads and glitter was delivered in high doses. Despite all of the edgy makeup looks and otherworldly hairdos, there were a couple of beauty takeaways for us commoners.
We now have extra incentive to try blurred lips since Julien Fournié painted his models’ pouts red with strategic pink enhancements. Just like on the streets, scarves were popular hair accessories, with some of Stéphane Rolland’s ladies sporting them intertwined in ponytails. And with neon green trending in fashion, Georges Chakra’s bright green shadow can totally translate off the runway.
Here are 21 must-see beauty looks from this haute couture season. See how many you’re willing to try.
