This is the look that had everyone talking. Karl Lagerfeld's hit squad, comprising makeup artist Tom Pecheux and hair stylist Sam McKnight, pulled together a challenging, tomboyish aesthetic inspired by the Twenties. Eyebrows were exaggeratedly bold, elongated and straight, and offset by striking red lips with the cupid's bow rounded out for a doll-like effect. Lashes were kept bare so as to not compete, while an angular sweep of blush kept things showy. You might want to forgo the bobbed wig, though.

Giorgio Armani Privé's "Shocking" show in Paris featured a bold, punkish and unapologetic make-up look centered on fuchsia lips. Beauty artist Linda Cantello created a flamboyant makeup vibe by teaming a nude, matte base with softly smudged eyes using a hint of grey shadow and liner. Brows were dark but slightly blurred. She then filled in the mouth with a show-stopping pink, resulting in a pretty tomboy effect.

Italian fashion designer Donatella Versace went for a bold, festival vibe. The models sported luminous, dewy skin with natural-looking brows and a rose pink lip. The real focal point was the eyes, which were ringed in a vibrant, shimmery green that smattered down towards the cheekbone for an ethereal look. -- AFP Relaxnews
