Couture Beauty Tips

The couture runways are where designers’ wildest ideas and most imaginative visions come to life. But here are some beauty inspirations you can actually wear in real life. From the red lip stain and dewy skin at Christian Dior to the stick-straight locks and smoky eye at Versace, these are the looks you’ll want to re-create.

couture-beauty-dior

Christian Dior

When wearing a bold lip color, like the matte cherry red seen at Christian Dior, it is important to downplay your other features with soft eye makeup and light brows.
couture-beauty-tony-ward

Tony Ward

Adding white shimmer (or gold for those with darker complexions) to the inner corners of the eyelid will make your eyes seem bigger, brighter, and more awake.
couture-beauty-mabille

Alexis Mabille

Minus the butterflies of course (or maybe just one), white eyeshadow and a bold brow is the perfect look for a spring evening.
couture-beauty-valli

Giambattista Valli

Giambattista Valli is bringing the Amy Winehouse cat eyeliner back, highlighted by a completely fresh face.
couture-beauty-versace

Atelier Versace

A hair straightener, smoky eye shadow, and lip gloss is all that’s on the Versace girl’s beauty check list.

Your so Couture!

XOXO
