Kaia Gerber Looks Like An Absolute Emerald Dream At Paris Fashion Week

We need to talk about the head-turning beauty statements at Paris Fashion Week, because it's totally taking our makeup obsession to a whole new level! Case in point: Kaia Gerber's stunning green gemstone eye makeup look at Valentino's Spring/Summer 2019 runway.

Models like Kaia and Jam Janaye walked the Valentino S/S19 runway wearing actual gems on their eyelids, care of celebrity makeup artist extraordinaire Pat McGrath—and honestly, we can't help but do a double take.

Looking like an absolute glitter dream, the models show off blingy rhinestones all over their eyes, with their lids painted with stunning metallic green and purple shades. McGrath used the gemstones to create a dramatic set of wings that wrapped around the eyebrows. To keep the focus on the eyes, the rest of the makeup was kept minimal with dewy skin, a rosy blush and some lip balm. 

On Instagram, McGrath shared a video of Kaia’s makeup with caption, “EXTRAVAGANT BEAUTY The DIVINE @kaiagerber at @pppiccioli @maisonvalentino #PFW#ValentinoSS19 wearing hand-applied @swarovski crystals.” Check it out here:

Kaia, who by the way was just announced as the newest—and youngest ever—global beauty ambassador of Yves Saint Laurent Beaute also shared a shot of this breathtaking look, writing, “beautiful @maisonvalentino today. thank you to the visionary who is @pppiccioli ?? @patmcgrathreal for this incredible eye moment, and the whole family @guidopalau #joemckenna @italia3bis”

Other models in the show came down the runway in similar sparkly styles, including rhinestone red lips and purple-painted eyes, shots of which were shared in McGrath’s covetable Instagram feed:
