The Most Captivating Haute Couture SS24 Beauty Looks

Below, we have rounded up the most inspiring makeup and hairstyles from the runways.

At Haute Couture Week, all eyes are bound to be on the clothes—that’s simply a given. They are, after all, the whole reason the fashion industry descends on Paris for that fateful week. With these extraordinary ensembles taking centre stage, you might be led to believe that any beauty elements that accompany these atelier-made looks are there only to service their sartorial counterparts.

Though they certainly do that, that’s not to say that the hair and make-up we see on the couture runways don’t tell their own stories, too. From the most outlandish, bold statement looks to the minimalist au natural appearances, haute couture beauty had a big role to play in 2024.

At Simone Rocha’s Jean Paul Gaultier show, faces were as bejewelled as her garments, with diamonds and gems mimicking that of eyeshadow and lipstick, speaking to a bold feminine power that accompanied her rose-hued collection. On Daniel Roseberry’s Schiaparelli runway, bleached eyebrows and slicked back hair played into his man-versus-machine, alien-meets-humanity narrative, with hair and makeup acting as much a blank canvas for the fashion to shine as a part of the story itself.

You can witness the most captivating and inspiring hair and makeup looks straight from the couture catwalks. These looks offer a visual feast, whether capturing a dreamlike essence or showcasing an elevated take on classic beauty.

Maison Margiela’s makeup resembled textural oil paintings, incorporating the popular glass skin trend. Each model’s face looked moonlit and reflective, while Vaudeville-style skinny brows added a turn-of-the-century touch.

Yet another captivating beauty element that caught our attention during haute couture week was the revived affection for rhinestones. Among the standout collections was Schiaparelli’s, where Pat McGrath and her team introduced the instantly iconic crystal ear. McGrath’s influence extended to the bleached brow aesthetic and radiant skin, notably achieved using the Sublime Skin Highlighter in Nude Opal, a newly introduced limited-edition shade.
