Most Remarkable Makeup from Milan Fashion Week 2012


With the Grammy and Oscar ceremonies, we almost forgot about the Fashion Weeks. New York and London Fashion Weeks have already finished, and today we are going to sum up the results of Milan Fashion Week 2012, looking forward to Paris.

Common makup mistakes

If New York often means more challenging and even bold ideas, it is different in Milan. Paying tribute to the Italian baroque style, the makeup presented by the Italian brands is always characterized by chic and elegance. Let us see what the Italian designers offered in Milan for the Fall 2012 Makeup

Alberta Ferretti

The image of the prima ballerina with the soft glowing skin, framed by accurate hair with much gel and a low bundle.

Giorgio Armani

We go back to the 1970-s. Long hair, thick eyeliner and plenty of accessories.


Byblos makeup artists seem to have been inspired by the Indians.

Bottega Veneta

Black lipstick and a dramatic look, but the lack of mascara on the eyelashes softens the image.


The models of DSquared2 seem to originate from the films by Federico Fellini made in the 1960-s.

Dolce & Gabbana

The girls from Dolce & Gabbana were distinguished by their Rococo make-up and rich hair accessories, as in the paintings by Jean-Honore Fragonard.

Joan Smalls looks wonderful without makeup and with straight hair. Such is the philosophy of Etro – simple and beautiful things.


Fendi often presents unexpected hairdos and makeup, just like in this show. Celtic hairstyle with braids and eye makeup with ice shadows and coal eyeliner.

Gianfranco Ferré

Gianfranco Ferré is a fan of rich smoky eyes.


Critics have called these models “prim”: dramatic red lips, pale skin, and coiffed hair. A good vintage image.


Silver and purple eye makeup in a combination with the pale skin creates a special contrast with the bluish black hair.

Back in the 1990-s: nude makeup and hair with a difference in textures.

Pringle of Scotland

Minimum of makeup plus a glossy lipstick.
