Many designers play it safe when it comes to ready-to-wear makeup because it’s too much of a risk distracting from the clothes that people are looking to buy and wear. Luckily, with couture, we don’t have that problem and are met with daring looks left and right. Each style has elements of wearability, but we suggest you leave the rest for the professionals. Here are a few of our favorite crazy looks from this past week in Paris.
If your beauty icons are Grimes and Yolandi from Die Antwoord, this style's for you. You take those kitchen scissors to your bangs and go on with your bad self.
On Aura Tout Vu
As if the bejeweled scuba mask wasn't enough, they paired it with space age silver eyes that should come with a hypnotist's warning.
We're calling this one "Couture Banana Clip." Watch this space. It's a trend in the making.
Jean Paul Gaultier
There are some designers that you expect a heap of crazy from, JPG being one of them, but this red-eyed zombie look is startling even for him. Paired with a mess up top, albeit an artful one, this tops our list of wacky looks this season.
This is technically not a beauty look, but we thought it deserved an honorable mention in our list as netted face coverings were a trend this haute couture and this is arguably the most unwearable and potentially problematic.
