Milan Fashion Week has just finished, and yet again I have done a post on my favourite beauty looks and trends from the catwalk.
First, to my favourite designer, Jil Sander (I love you Jil) who has focused on my two favourite elements of makeup, amazing skin and strong brows. teamed with slicked back hair, its the perfect minimalist look to compliment her beautiful collection.
Now call me biased, but I loved the hair and makeup at Emilio Pucci because this is basically my everyday look! Heavy fringe? Check! Long tousled hair? Check! Black liner flicks? Check! Copycat.
Wet-look hair with lots of texture was a big trend in Milan, making appearances at Prada, Genny and Alberta Ferretti.
Hair was BIG and 70’s inspired at Bottega Venetta, smooth and glossy at the roots , turning into loose waves with fluffy, brushed-out ends
Waves were more structured at Francesco Scognamiglio, repeating the trend in seen in New York for waves that looked like braids that had been slept in, then unravelled. I love it on the side here, just revealing an angular smoky eye.
Smoky eyes were also seen at Gucci in warm shades of brown and bronze. The look initially had a red base, before the colour was layered on top and finished with lashings of mascara.

Makeup was classic, feminine and elegant at Dolce and Gabbana and Emporio Armani, with clean skin and scarlet lips. The lips in both collections were a perfect scarlet; not too orange and not to blue, but a balance of both.
I liked Marni’s take on the red lip, which was smudgier and more of a stain. Paired with the slick hair here, the Marni girl looks like she has been blown around a little by (very expensive) bad weather, which is adorable and great for any UK residents, as that is how we look pretty much all year round!
Fendi pared a dark lip with beautiful flawless matte skin and a strong brow. I have been loving dark lips recently and used the look in a couple of shoots. It surprisingly wearable too, with lots of mascara it makes a memorable evening look. For the hair, Fendi used a tight french braid down the back of the head, definitely a look that could be done at home, without the fluffy headpiece, unless you’re feeling brave!)
Finally, there was a little more of the grungy goth girl seen in London at Roberto Cavalli, however our Italian goth is a little glossier and embracing the poker straight hair trend which has been extremely popular so far in Fashion month.
