Top 5 Beauty Trends Seen At Milan Fashion Week

Lips are finally back in the spotlight. Along with killer lengths on the lashes.

Moschino Spring 2023

As both New York Fashion Week and London Fashion Week have provided plenty of incredible fashion and beauty trends to copy, now it’s the turn for the Milan Fashion Week to continue inspiring fashion and beauty moments.

October marks the end of a month-long series of shows in New York, London, Milan and Paris, and coincides with that autumnal mood to refresh and renew. The overall mood? Fun. Glitter was sprinkled throughout the runway shows, from Prada’s eyelids with droopy, extra-long lashes creating a grunge vibe to Moschino’s lips and the glowy, delicate make up on Fendi’s models.

Milan brings back bold and playful colors to brighten up our days, whether in pieces or makeup looks, and we are totally obsessed with all the proposals! Of course, there have also been classic makeup looks with a touch of freshness.

With the spring-summer 2023 runways, the beauty trends that have emerged, and that we can’t wait to showcase, are five and they’re easy to replicate. Let’s discover them in detail.

Max Mara: Neutral Colours Lips

Creative Director Ian Griffiths took cues from 1930s female intellectuals on the French Riviera, evoking feminine modernity with a neutral colour palette into its pieces. Models wore swimming caps in neutral colours while keeping their beauty looks simple and natural, with a tinge of coral lipstick which definitely helped to define the whole look.

Moschino: High Shine-Impact Makeup & Hair

For the Spring 2023 collection, the brand and makeup legend Kabuki constructed a classic take on glamour and extravaganza. Models wore immaculate skin, smoky eyes, and red lacquered lips (glossy). As regards hair, Kabuki opted for a more subdued style: a sleek bun kept neat with a generous slick of gel. Some models wore balloon animals on their heads; others had giant earrings on.

Fendi: Grunge Makeup & Hair

For the Spring 2023 season, Creative Director Kim Jones have taken inspiration from the ‘90s, reinterpreting them as the skin being kept nude and eyebrows “made to be a bit bushier on most girls” while adding satin finishes. Besides, silver makeup has also been present added to the model’s eye ade – a modern grunge must-have trend to copy this season.

As regards hairstyle, the brand opted for soft, blown-out waves – soft middle parting, letting the hair frame the face and the natural but modern makeup.

Prada: False Eyelashes

Creative Directors Miuccia Prada & Raf Simons opted for striking beauty details that stood out on the Prada Spring-Summer 2023 runway. Makeu-up artist Pat McGrath applied thick, false and custom-mad eyelashes onto models’ upper eyelids that “represents reflections of creative freedom,” said Pat. They were so long and straight that they fanned over the eyes, “draped with garments of custom faux lashes with intentional shape and placement. Paired with undetectable radiant skin and a nude lip, this look redefines what it means to add a faux lash,” Pat added.
