With no shortage of show-stopping looks, the runway serves as an endless source of inspiration – here are our best beauty picks from Milan and London, and how you can cop these looks off!
Side-swept away: We’ve heard of a side part, but this deep side part is oh-so-flattering, as seen here at Jil Sander and Erdem.
Dress it up with a chunky headband, bows, bejeweled clips and such – Blair Waldorf would certainly approve! Women with a prominent forehead and square-shaped jaw line, this one’s a definite for you.
I woke up like this…Flawless: “Ladies, tell ‘em…” No, we’re not breaking into a Beyoncé song, but these effortless smoky eyes make us want to ponder over how the make-up maestros backstage at Burberry and Versace can make the morning-after makeup look so fresh!
Do try this at home – use a black or grey kohl pencil and smudge either with a q-tip or your fingers, making sure the flaws are concealed and the rest of the face is dewy and fresh.
Clip it, don’t snip it: Coral hair clips and jeweled barrettes ruled the runway at Gucci and Prada.
Hairstylist at Prada, Guido Palau, transformed an already glam high ponytail and pumped it up with its loose ends tucked ever-so-chic-ly to the side with these gorgeous trinkets. Hair-accessorize, we must!
Peachy keen: A peach blush for a sun-kissed glow is heard of, but an explosion of peach on the eyes? Not so often. While Tom Ford may have taken a leave of absence from his regular showing at London Fashion Week and surprised us at California, meanwhile backstage, his team of make-up experts have definitely blown us away!
Though the runway iterations are intriguing, you can certainly tone things down for real life – a combination of shimmery peach and taupe eyeshadow can work so well for a gradient smoky eye.
Chignon Chic: Ever ruined a French bun by trying it yourself? Been there, done that! The hairstylists at Fendi validate that a mistake can sometimes look so effortlessly glam.
If messy do’s aren’t your speed, try a sleek knotted bun, as seen here at Jonathan Saunders.
Artful Flutters: Spider-y lashes and a playful eye, the eyes sported by the models at Fendi make for an artful juxtaposition between dainty and drab.
P.S. Do not try this one at home. Unless you’re going as the Black Swan for Halloween.
