Coming into the home stretch of fashion week, we've almost seen it all but Milan still gave us a lot to think about. With trends ranging from fluoro lips to metallic eyes, there was such as wide range of trends that it was difficult to pick the ten best. Here are a few of the looks that we're itching to recreate.
Everyone knows that Cavalli loves some black eyeliner. As the collection was lighter and less harsh this season, makeup artist Diane Kendal took a similar approach to the makeup with this slightly smudged morning-after look. Cheeks were contoured and shaped leaving the skin looking sculpted but still fresh and clean.
Many designers have opted for a bare face this season but many of us can't quite leave the house without at least some help. This look by Tom Pecheux may look natural but the even skin, flushed cheek, and plum stained lip work well to highlight the features without any harsh colors. This look is proof that if your base is right, nothing else matters.
One of the most exciting trends to come out of fashion month is the high maintenance lip. This version at Missoni, by Lucia Pieroni, is a mixture of three different lipsticks which were then topped with pigment. While this look isn't easily wearable for most women as pigment gives the lips an uncomfortable dry texture, you can get a version of the look by mixing pink and orange lipsticks then topping with a hit of red.
The 60s have certainly made their make on this fashion month with designers from New York, London, and Milan all calling on the swinging era for inspiration. This look by Tom Pecheux might be more literal than the others but the fluttery lashes and coral lips could definitely translate to a modern woman.
Wearing bold lips during the day is a common practice these days but it's always nice to see it done well. With Pat McGrath, you know you're going to get something wonderful but there's more to this bold lip than meets the eye. If you take a careful look at the cupids bow, there's a rim of white along the upper lip. Our obsession with sculpting and contouring has officially reached its peak.
This look is the older, crazier sister of the Marni girl. Her plum lips are wearably stained but the bleached eyebrows and yellow eyes might not be for everyone. There's one thing that this look is proof of, that mascara is not the be all and end all as it was once hailed. A soft and smudged look such as this one would look wrong next to coated lashes so make sure you take note of the rest of your look before reaching for the wand.
We mentioned the influence of the 60s with Moschino and this look from Kristina Ti is a softer, more wearable interpretation of the trend. Similar to the Edie Sedgwick look shown at Marc Jacobs, the soft cut crease is a nice alternative to a standard smoky eye.
Now, we know these are the spring collections but with an icy shadow in the inner corner and a golden bronze smoky eye, this look is perfect for the winter months. We can just imagine it on a skater in a winter wonderland all bundled up with flushed cheeks and statement eyes.
Everything about Bottega Veneta oozes sophistication and this look is no different. With a flushed cheek, petal pink lip, and subtly highlighted features, this look would work for almost any occasion.
Similar to the look at Gianfranco Ferre this look is a much brighter and summery version. Opt for a champagne tone rather than white for a less harsh contrast.
