Fashion Week AW15 was all about extreme beauty: Will you be trying these trends?
Bored of your usual makeup look? Mastered the eyeliner flick and up for a new challenge? Take your pick from these Fashion Week beauty looks from Paris, Milan, London and New York. If you're brave enough…
The "Doublefaced" style used on the models on the Jacquemus catwalk is the work of Berlin-based artist Sebastien Bieniek.

Rick Owens, Paris
At first glimpse it might look like a mud mask — and you wouldn't be entirely wrong. For his AW15 show in Paris, Rick Owens' beauty team applied gel face masks to the models before painting gold leaf on top.

Mary Katrantzou, London
Makeup for the Mary Katrantzou show in London was inspired by dolls' faces: small, square sections of eyelashes were ironed flat then applied under the lower lashline. It's certainly a pretty easy look to copy but be prepared for people to say, "You've smudged your eye liner…"

Marc Jacobs, New York
For his New York Fashion Week show Marc Jacobs went with gothic-style makeup: washed out faces and thick, dark, sloping brows.

House of Holland, London
House of Holland had a gothic vibe going on too. We reckon we could nail this makeup look. Or let some nursery kids loose on our faces with a black marker…

Eudon Choi, London
With makeup this arty you really would want to walk around with your eyes closed. Note the big, bushy brows as well — a definite makeup trend running throughout all four Fashion Weeks.

Simone Rocha, London
Where are those nursery kids? It was face painting meets high fashion at Simone Rocha's London show, where some of the embroidered flowers on the models' gowns appeared to have migrated onto their faces.

Transylvanian designer Dora Abodi paired her quirky clothes with smudged eyes, embellishments and lip scars.

Marko Mitanovski, London
A lick of black paint and you'll be ready to hit the town à la the models on the catwalk for Serbian designer Marko Mitanovski at London Fashion Week.

Sophia Webster, London
Chalk-white faces were big at Sophia Webster, some covered in black dots, which certainly went with the show's "Freak Like Me" theme. Don't think this would be the easiest look to pull off doing your weekly supermarket shop.

One of our favourite extreme beauty looks came from Giamba's show at Milan Fashion Week. Barely-there makeup with only a few strategically placed tattoos. Go on — paint a tiny heart above your eyebrow and see if anyone thinks it's real. You rebel.
