It was a colourful backstage at many of the couture shows in Paris last week. Peter Philips at Viktor & Rolf and Pat McGrath at Margiela created amazing graphic designs with glitter. Phillips switched to liquid eyeliner at Dior. The result was exaggerated liner perfectly framed with fabulous masks. The Elie Saab girl by Tom Pecheux was all about youthful glamour. Terry Barber’s neon flash of lower liner stood out against an otherwise blank canvas at Iris Van Herpen. I loved Lisa Butler‘s 80’s vibe at Alexandre Vauthier, it looked incredible with the collection. As did the pretty faces at Chanel’s garden inspired show. For the ultimate guide to sensational skin we need look no farther than Val Garland’s version at Giambattista Valli.
