Some more familiar looks from NYFW popped up at Milan, reinforcing the coming beauty trends. And one unique look that stole the show for me. But first, the confirmed trends:
As seen at New York and London, it looks like the side parting is here to stay. Square faced girls everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief
Just like at New York. This look is so Mother of Dragons. To recreate, section off your hair into three parts and dutch braid each part, coming together at the back of your hair for a ponytail or bun. Or keep braiding each section to the end for a more edgy look.
Another repeat. I can see why. It’s easy to recreate and it’s pretty.
This is a simple one to copy, with a decent gel liner. I use Mac’s Fluidline in Blacktrack (£15.50) and the best brush I’ve found is the Bobbi Brown gel liner brush (£18). Experiment with different looks and shapes, and if you mess up, just pretend it was on purpose.
Dolce and Gabbana
D&G really won it with this simplistic, old Italy glam look. Similar to the Burberry look at LFW, the wine stained lips look classy and they have added a cat eye flick which makes it more of an evening look than Burberry’s bare eyes.
That’s Pucci, Not Poochie
To recreate this look, try sleeping in plaits. If you don’t have 12 hours, plait your hair and then go over the plaits with a straightener. When you take the plaits out you should have gorgeous Cersei Lannister beach waves.
Now for my favourite beauty look from all of MFW, Moschino‘s Barbie Girls!
This look is so pretty and wearable and it reminds me of me circa 2011. I lived for the Barbie lips and was never seen without my Lady Gaga Viva Glam lipstick. That was limited edition, but some great alternatives are Pink Nouveau and Saint Germain from Mac (£15.50)
My guess for Paris is more side partings, doll lashes and maybe some purple eyeshadows. Let’s hope we don’t get any more garage doors though…
