As the curtain closes on haute couture week (le sigh), we’re scrolling through all corners of the internet, saving a stack of beauty looks that caught our attention. In all truth, there were plenty, but a closer analysis proves that there’s a handful of trends bubbling up on the runway.
From celestial skin to precision plaits, scroll on for four key beauty trending takeaways from the runways in Paris — and a slew of product recommendations should you wish to try at home.
Whether iridescent, creamy and ethereal or dusted with actual glitter, shining skin was on the menu. Consider this an extension of glass skin, where the gleamy, glossy look is taken into another dimension. Layer up highlighters and shimmer shadows for a similar effect (and don’t forget to hydrate via skincare).

LADY IN RED
After 24 months of mask wearing, the humble red lip is making a triumphant return. While it is (let’s be honest) annoying, it certainly makes a statement. Take a leaf out of Schiaparelli’s book and opt for a classic creamy cherry, or copy Margiela’s rich pinky raspberry. Keep it neat with a complimentary lip liner.

Part physical education, part space odyssey, tiny plaits and braided details were everywhere. At Elie Saab, slick ballerina buns were made all the more interested with two plaits along the crown, while Iris Van Herpen pushed the boundaries in terms of shape, placement and length. Whether its a dedicated look or simply to keep your hair out of your face, this easy-to-replicate style is one worth trying at home.
