Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013 has come and gone, and while the Parisian runways are usually full of avant-garde beauty, this year there were also plenty of low-key hair and makeup looks to inspire. Full brows, bare faces, and low ponytails took over the runways, but bright pops of color made their mark as well. Caged masks, fuzzy helmet hats, and zombie-like face paint even took their turns on the catwalks. See all the looks in today's Beauty Beat. On Kirbie: Zara dress.
Designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli crafted Valentino's Fall 2013 collection with all the beauty and romance fit for a modern-day fairy tale. The lineup of modest silhouettes and school-girl inspired accents was finished in lace and embroidery making each look more precious than the next. See the entire collection right here.
The nails from the Paris Fashion Week Fall 2013 runways have been the most artistic (and accessible) of all.
