Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013: A Beautiful Moment at Mugler

The look at Mugler is simply A+. It's got all of my favourite beauty things: a coral lip (seriously, get with this ladies, it's really a flattering colour on everyone), matte skin, thick brows, a structured hair shape and a glossy eye. I know. The glossy eye. We editors in the biz love a glossy eye because, well, it just looks so cool. In real life, if you've ever tried to sport one you end up looking like someone wacked you in the face with a piece of fried chicken. Not so covetable. Not so fashion.

Charlotte Tilbury, the key artist for MAC backstage, used their super slick and sticky Lip Glass on eyes to play with texture and counter balance the matte skin. "We want the lids to have a laquered, patent shine," she explained before rushing off to check a model's final look. "We wanted a fresh, modern look to work off looks in the collection. The idea is of very fresh skin, laquered texture, a little bit 50s, early 60s feeling."

Hair - which was a slightly bouffy but very controlled, chic ponytail - was created by Sam McKnight (he of Fendi, Chanel and DSquared2 hair fame) using a mix of Frederic Fekkai and Pantene products. McKnight was in a relaxed mood in the cavernous and chilly backstage area and told me he wanted the hair to mimic the shapes of the hats some models were sporting. "The hair is a slight Catherine DeNeuve with a modern edge - it's not retro, though," he said. "It's got a dry texture, not waved or 60s. The top is an aerodynamic Correges... kind of thing."
