Twiggy eyeliner, slicked-back hair and fresh skin; these are the AW21 Paris Fashion Week beauty trends you'll actually want to wear.

Fingers crossed, we’re looking at a restriction-free season come September, where real clothes will re-enter your life. In the meantime, get started on your AW21 look now with the best of Paris Fashion Week’s beauty trends, from Balmain’s Twiggy lashes to Koché’s wet-look skin.

Here are the beauty looks from Paris Fashion Week you’ll absolutely want to wear.

TWIGGY EYES AT BALMAIN

Backstage at Balmain, make-up artist Isamaya Ffrench paired clean, soft-focus skin with light-handed, delicate Twiggy-esque painted on lashes, created with L’Oréal Paris Perfect Slim By Superliner.

FRESH SKIN AT KOCHÉ

Koché’s 80’s inspired eyeliner was balanced with luminous, gleaming dream skin, with help from hyaluronic acid and a few drops of shimmering L’Oréal Paris Glow Mon Amour Highlighting Drops.

SLICKED BACK HAIR AT ELIE SAAB

Toughening up the tulle and feathers at Elie Saab was raw, slicked-back hair created by hairdresser Wassim Morkos using Elnett Strong Hold Hairspray.

SMOKY EYES AT DIOR

Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Make-up created heavy, intense smoky eyes for a collection interpreted from fairy tales. “I emphasized the eyes by creating a variation on an intense smoky eye, brightened by blending out the eyeshadow. I wanted the eyes to be dark and poetic, in harmony with the mysterious, fairy tale atmosphere of this collection,” said Philips.
