MFW SS16 Beauty Report – The Italian Glam Beauty Looks Hot Off The Catwalk

By  | 

Alberta Ferretti's Golden Tan

This was a 24 carat tan.  Think Verushka in the desert but in the '70s.  'They are these dreamy desert creatures and there is a goddess-y ethereal quality to them,' explained Tilbury, who worked golden highlights (MAC In Da Bling)  in with a cream bronzer (MAC's Improper Copper Creme Colour Base)  and sunkissed pink blusher. She accentuated the skin with halo's of gold around the eyes. 

MaxMara's David Bowie Eyes

'She's a club kid turned sailor' could be one of the strangest show references we've ever heard, but it totally works. Hitting us with a much-needed pop of colour (and actual makeup) MaxMara's girls were given a generous dose of David Bowie with ultra-graphic angular eyes painted on in neon orange and green.

An unexpected contrast to the nautical vibe present throughout the collection (think rope detailing and a whole host of Breton stripes, Milan who?), we're totally on board (geddit?) with this psychedelic sailor look.

BluGirl's Brushed Up Brows And Bronzed Eyes

Bronzed eyes and glowing skin seems to already be a massive trend this MFW (see Gucci), and it's only day two. Jumping on the bandwagon, or rather, inventing it, the loveliest makeup pro in the biz Val Garland adorned models with 'brushed up brows and bronzed radiance'.

In lamens terms? Garland transformed models into the ultimate Italian glamazon aka exactly how we'd want to look. Glossy but understated, glowing but not overdone and with a power brow that says I mean business, yup, this is the most wearable look of MFW so far. Val, we salute you!

Gucci's Barefaced Beauty

Although there was more in the way of makeup at this season's Gucci show than last- it was still almost undetectable.  The starting (and ending) point was a sheer application of the Gucci Face Lustrous Glow Foundation.  'It’s applied very sheerly and we’re wiping off excess, keeping the cheeks very natural and real' explained McGrath.

'I put the foundation on and then I wipe off around the cheeks and any areas where it feels as if you’re killing the skin by having it there.  It’s very much the opposite of that way that people are learning to do foundation today- pancake faces and contouring.'
