Paris Fashion Week Beauty, White Makeup, White Face Paint

Trend Alert: Pasty White Faces for Spring

Now that Paris Fashion Week is finally over, it's time to round up another beauty trend from the hottest fashion shows that France has to offer. Red lips have been and will always be in style, as will sexy, bed head hair. But a little more fashion forward and racy is next season's modern take on the white Geisha face.

At the Alexander McQueen show, faces were painted a sparkly, almost iridescent white colour. At John Galliano for Christian Dior, skin was uber pale and accentuated with dark plummy lips and eyes, and at the Tim Hamilton show, faces and lips were a sheer white shade. I don't know if I'd be brave enough to rock this trend, but it sure does make a statement. How about you — would you ever paint your face white for a party other than Halloween?
