With Spring/Summer 2017 Fashion Week well underway in Paris, L'Oreal muses like Karlie Kloss , Soo Joo Park and Kristina Bazan have made their way to the French fashion capital to sit – and walk – front row at this week's runway shows. But amidst the top tier spring presentations, another L'Oreal muse has made her way to the city for a different reason – to attend the opening of the first L'Oreal Paris store.
Today in Paris, 22-year-old Barbara Palvin arrived at the brand's first store opening on the back of a motorbike wearing a helmet and skin-tight leather catsuit with plunging neckline. She paired the risqué look with chic ankle boots for the ultimate femme fatale look. The youngest ever ambassador for the brand was excited to take selfies with fans and cut the ribbon for the opening of the store.
Speaking of her partnership with the brand, she said: "What has happened to me is like a fairy tale. I am so excited to be part of the L'Oreal Paris family next to women as strong and iconic as Julianne Moore and Doutzen Kroes."
And while you may have thought the Hungarian supermodel's superhero-esque outfit was bold, her makeup choices made even louder statement that we can't wait to re-create for fall 2016! Read on to find out how to achieve the statement makeup looks Barbara wore at L'Oreal's first store opening!
BARBARA PALVIN: BOLD LIPSTICK FOR L'OREAL'S FIRST STORE OPENING
If there's one thing we can take away from fall 2016's runways, it's that bold lipstick is the best way to make a statement this season. Despite entering the L'Oreal Paris store with no lipstick in place, once inside, Barbara slicked on a deep and vampy plum colour to plump up her pout. To complete her femme fatale appearance, the L'Oreal muse opted for a matte complexion and hint of mascara on her upper lashes. And though voluminous texture has become one of fall's most prominent hair trends, Barbara wore her brown hair pin straight brushing against her shoulders – a look we spotted on supermodels Doutzen Kroes and Irina Shayk during Spring 2017 Fashion Week.
Upon leaving the store, the supermodel had changed her lip colour to another one of fall's most over-the-top makeup trends: gold glitter lips. Glitter was first spotted on fall's 2016/17 runways layered overtop of vibrant red and plum lipstick. Now, it-girls and makeup artists are playing around with the look, and going for glitter in the form of neutrals and gold, as well. So, whether you prefer a classic bold pout or a unique, statement-making look, we encourage you to stock up on unexpected lipstick shades for fall 2016!

Inspired by Barbara's flawless makeup look? Read on to find out how you can re-create it for yourself this season!
Step 1: To create a flawless matte complexion, start off by unifying your base with a matte liquid foundation. Use a brush or a sponge to blend the formula into your skin for full coverage, covering up any redness or blemishes.
Step 2: After you've perfected your base, take it a step further by applying a matte formula concealer under your eyes, as well as on any blemish spots. Blend the concealer in with a sponge (or your ring finger) for flawless coverage.
Step 3: Next, you'll want to set your makeup with a translucent powder to perfect the matte base and ensure a look that lasts. To do this, use a fluffy brush to gently sweep a layer of powder over your complexion. Let it set for about 5 minutes, then sweep away any excess powder.
Step 4: Using a bronzing powder that's about two shades darker than your skin tone, sculpt your cheekbones, temples, forehead and jawline. This will accentuate your features and give you a more sculpted look.
Step 5: Moving on to your eyes, use a voluminous mascara to accentuate your upper lashes. Start on the inner lashes and move your way outwards toward the outer lashes, moving your hands in a back and forth motion to avoid clumping.
Step 6: Complete your look by covering your pout with a matte vampy red lipstick, or if you're feeling bold – a metallic gold shade topped with matching glitter. Use a lip balm to allow the glitter to stay put!
