Nicolas Ghesquière put out a beautiful collection for Louis Vuitton to close out Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, and while the show as a whole was a standout of the season, it's the eye makeup in particular that has us mesmerized. 

Makeup artist Pat McGrath reminded us all, yet again, why she's regarded as the master of her craft by putting together a series of spectacular eye-makeup looks. While the majority of the models in the show wore no-makeup makeup, a handful of them — the lucky ones, if you ask us — received McGrath's artful treatment of color-blocking, racing stripes and negative-space patterns in hues and shapes that sometimes coordinated or contrasted with the outfit they were wearing. No two versions were the same.

McGrath seems to have been quite mesmerized by the final product herself, taking to Instagram to post the above video of the blue-and-orange look she created for model Signe Veiteberg.

Meanwhile, the hair told a story of individuality and utter chillness. Hairstylist Paul Hanlon created a variety of laid-back hairstyles, largely showcasing models' own cuts and natural textures (and model Teddy Quinlivan's freshly-dyed, shocking brunette color makeover!).
