Best makeup looks from the Milan fashion week
With the annual ready to wear autumn/winter fashion weeks taking place around the world at the moment it’s hard not to see a picture of a Hadid or Jenner strutting down the catwalk dripping in beautiful garments. But what about the makeup? Here at Beautifinda we have had a look into the most recent Autumn/Winter 2017 Milan fashion week to see what beauty trends complemented and stood out in the stunning shows.
Moschino is always a show to behold, with kitschy elements such as the McDonalds happy meal handbag, perfume packaged in a bottle of a spray cleaning product and toilet roll clutches. So it’s always a show which garners a lot of interest and rightfully so due to the creativity and uniqueness of it all. The makeup look that Moschino went for was that of a 60’s vibe, which in turn perfectly matched the 60’s beehive hair-dos and block fringes on show. Across the models eyelids was a taupe coloured eyeshadow in the crease which mimicked the eyeliner flick across the lash line. In between the crease and the eyeliner was a wash of light, almost silver toned shadow. This beautiful eye look was then paired with a matte looking skin and matte nude/brownish lip. It was a very sophisticated makeup look which tied together Moschino’s theme of recycling materials into next level, chic ensembles.
Alberta Ferretti ready-to-wear
Alberta Ferretti saw models gracefully flowing down the runway in billowy sheer gowns. They’ve juxtaposed the ethereal gowns by applying a heavy, smoky black eye on the models which is blended and smoked underneath the eye and then to the outer corner creating a feline look. They’ve also popped a cheeky little touch of red eyeshadow to the centre of the eyelid and a gold cream shadow to the inner corners of the eyes creating a nice colour pop which really brings out a lot of the models eye colour. This is matched with a flawless base and nude lip.
Missoni presented a flawless show which was matched with a fresh, bare, yet flawless face. This seems to be the biggest trend of the 2017 autumn/winter shows and that is an au natural minimal face. The models hair was tucked behind their ears, giving a full view to their face, so there wasn’t much room for error. It seems the face was well prepped and moisturised, brows groomed and lip balm on the lips but that is about as much as it gets here. And because they’re models they look absolutely flawless since they’ve been blessed with the good genes. Overall it does a fantastic job of making the clothes the focus and feature plus it’s beautiful to see everyone’s natural faces on show.
Dolce & Gabbana ready-to-wear
Ah Dolce & Gabbana, the audacious and beautiful Italian powerhouse celebrated a stunning diversity on the catwalk with models of all sizes, race, gender and age which is a refreshingly realistic reflection of the world. Models strutted down the catwalk in bold prints dripping in the iconic gold crowns, jewellery and sunglasses that the label is known for. The makeup used in the show was a reflection of the diversity of the models, with different looks seen on the various models. Some wore a bright red lipstick with winged eyeliner, others wore a deep plum lip, and then others simply had winged eyeliner with a nude lip. All of the makeup looks were matched with a beautiful matte flawless base and full brows. Overall this mixture of lips colours on an array of beautiful models complemented the many textures and patterns of the clothes and the theme of love and inclusion. Overall a fantastic look which suited everyone on the catwalk.
Versace went for a bold eye makeup look to complement their dark and stormy collection for autumn/winter. Black was a common thread in the collection, with every model wearing the colour in some form, so it makes sense that the eye makeup was a heavy graphic black block (done with some form of gel or liquid liner) swept over the entire eyelid and into the outer corners. This was then paired with a blank face, not much contouring or colour in the cheeks and topped with a bare lip. The models hair was littered with streaks of coloured (red, orange, yellow or blue) extensions amongst their luscious locks which reflected the pops of bright colours in the clothing.
