Au Naturel beauty behind the scenes at Paris Fashion Week

Paris. It's the city of light renowned for perfecting the art of applying a bold lip. But, this fashion week has seen the infamous red pout paired back with a paler alternative as a muted palette of barely-there make-up has taken the catwalk by storm for the upcoming season.

Featuring flawless skin, natural lip colours and sky-high lashes without a trace of mascara, this key trend will make you want to go nude every day this Autumn/Winter 2013.

Of course, a classic smokey eye or burgundy lipstick looks amazing against this clean and fresh look, the key is to keep skin simple.

From power manicures to glossy hair, we go behind the scenes of Paris Fashion Week to bring you the best of their au naturel looks…


From Valentino to Chloe and Devastee, lips were left looking natural with just a tint of nude and a slick of matte lipbalm. Smokey eyes were also a key feature in Devastee's look but were kept looking laid back with just one shade of shadow blended outwards

Precision-lined eyes and flawless skin matched the glossy straight hair that went into Collette Dinnigan's impeccable beauty look 

The key behind achieving this season's 'power' manicure is keeping nails looking glossy with cuticle oil and to round off sharp, square tips without making the shape tapered 

With simple skin, highlighted cheeks and barely-there eye make-up, this look keeps all the drama in the hair which, when undone, reveals a mass of gorgeous tumbling curls

Rocking Devastee's monochrome theme the make-up for the show is kept tonal with soft contouring to emphasise the models' cheekbones and taupe shade blended out at the eyelids
