From the Chanel show, where the hair was woven and plaited with strips of colorful and metallic fabric, then pulled into ponytails to the fun late-60s vibe to the clothes at both the Valentino and Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent shows, here are some of the hottest beauty trends from the Paris runways.

Sporty/nude
Vanessa Bruno and Giambattista Valli were just two of the designers to commit to the nude makeup trend at Paris Fashion Week. Makeup artist Val Garland explained the secret behind Valli's models' glowing rosy cheeks: no products, just a brief facial massage before the girls hit the catwalk.

1960s
There was a fun late-60s vibe to the clothes at both the Valentino and Hedi Slimane's Saint Laurent shows. As Saint Laurent this meant Celtic pale skin, Twiggy-style cat's eyes and heavy mascara. The Valentino look was subtler, featuring center-parted hair, soft pink lips and a line of pale blue eyeshadow.

Tribal/ rave
At the Chanel show the hair was woven and plaited with strips of colorful and metallic fabric, then pulled into ponytails. The rest of the makeup look was pretty low-key apart from a number of models with bright neon rave eyes. Jean-Charles De Castelbajac also went for brightly colored eye shadow as a contrast to otherwise bare faces.

Futuristic sci-fi
Jean Paul Gaultier's space-age girls wore blacked-in bold eyebrows, winged eyeliner (see the 60s, again) and tight alien antennae-like top-knot hairdos. Gareth Pugh sent out his models with powdery white makeup on fingers and faces, giving them a slightly outer-galactic aspect. The makeup look at Haider Ackermann crossed Marlene Dietrich with a Martian -- blotted-out eyebrows were replaced by thin black curved lines, worn with nude lips and pale bronze eyeshadow.
