An unequivocally dramatic sweep of midnight blue winged eyeliner is this season’s ‘look du jour’.

It’s the beauty equivalent of the card game Snap. Two top globally recognised fashion houses landed on a strikingly similar – almost identical – makeup look for their recent Haute Couture collections, both shown in Paris, a day apart. Key to the approach at both Dior and Chanel? Sharp swoops of extended black eyeliner that flicks out at the corners with emphasis on intense “under-liner”– a streak of midnight blue etched along the bottom lash line, even defining the inner corners. Everything else about each look was decidedly low-key, down to the bare, balmy lip.

Beauty trends often emerge during Fashion Week, where the industry’s top fashion and beauty creatives come together to present the ideas they feel are right for right now. But it’s been a long time since a look was so unequivocally agreed upon. Very similar liner-loving looks also turned up in Giorgio Armani, Balenciaga and Schiaparelli’s presentations the same week, offering undeniable evidence that bold eyeliner will continue to play a big part in global makeup trends – and our own routines – in the coming months.
