Paris Beauty Roundup Spring 2012: The Best and the Quirkiest

It's hard to generalize about the beauty looks across the major fashion capitals, but we're going to go ahead and do it anyway. New York is either easy-breezy or loud and brash. London makeup artists usually go crazy with their palettes, while Milan is generally sophisticated and strong. Paris, much like many of the runway collections, is pretty with a theatrical streak. Check out our favorite looks (which, as usual, are the ones that are the most fun to look at.) Though this season we may have to try a few of these out in real life. Photos: Imaxtree

More Eye Appendages: We noticed early in Paris that designers were putting a lot of weird stuff on the eyes. Here are a couple more. Silver disc decals at Givenchy and paper stick-on eyeliner and pink lashes at Viktor and Rolf.
