Spectacular makeup goes hand in hand with haute couture. We've picked out the most amazing looks from the fashion week runways.
Spectacular makeup is meant to be inspirational and evocative. Much like the haute couture designs that it often accompanies on the runways, artistry is the key element. We've seen some truly amazing creations on the runways over the years. They might not be wearable for us mere morals. But these incredible looks are certainly inspiring.
Here are some of our favourite spectacular makeup looks from Fashion Week.
