PARIS — Makeup artist Stephane Marais said the beauty look at Jean Paul Gaultier’s couture show was a “couture ghost.”
 
“He wanted very, very pale [faces] and a red somewhere,” said Marais, who opted for matt skin and smoky eyed with a transparent quality — almost as if most of the color was removed, leaving a shadowy gray, before some red color was added.
 
There was no eyeliner, mascara or any other eye makeup, and mouths were made a dark, glossy blood red.
 
Two models had red encircling their eyes, in a more extreme, “Marilyn Manson” take, said Marais.
 
Hairstylist Odile Gilbert called the coifs “boyish and feminine because it’s very flat on the side and very high.”
 
She used long, dual-toned tresses (with hues like gray, black, white or red) many of which were handcrafted with pearls, sequins or faux crystals. Such creations took her three weeks to realize.
