This weekend was testament to the fact that Milan really is where some of fashion’s most stunning beauty looks hit the runway. Last but by no means least, the shows this weekend saw a fabulous array of beauty trends we just cannot WAIT to try…
1. Pucci’s Perfect Woman
The swinging sixties were in full force at Sunday’s Pucci show. Creative director Peter Dundas gave his Pucci princesses the perfect rock-chic hair, slightly bed-headed with a heavy fringe (as modelled beautifully by Cara). Matte skin, lashings of mascara and a strong feline flick came together to create the ultimate 60’s throwback.
2. Berry stained lips at Marni
"Austere but romantic” were the words Marni founder Consuelo Castiglioni used to describe her show on Sunday morning. This was one of the sexiest crimson pouts we’ve seen for a while, courtesy of make-up artist Tom Pecheux. Want to get the look? Insider sources tell us Pecheux used MAC Pro Lipmix in Crimson, MAC Hang-up Lipstick and a MAC Basic Red Pigment over the top before smudging the lines for a blurred effect.
3. Zombie Chic at Cavalli
Speaking about the statement hair and make-up at this show, model Georgia May Jagger described it as ‘zombie-chic’, explaining that patience really was a virtue when it came to creating the crimped-esque hair-do. Eyes were given a real pop, too, and were the perfect sultry accessory to the Oriental-inspired clothes.
4. Pop-art pouts at Missoni
Lucia Pieroni triumphed yet again with the creation of this remarkable fuchsia pout, ensuring that MFW really did end on a high. Don’t be daunted by the boldness of this look- teamed with a pretty white dress, this is one hot summer beauty trend we can’t wait to try.

5. Vixen Vintage at Bottega Veneta
Crowds at MFW were given a real treat first thing Saturday morning with this stellar show. The look here was luxurious, decadent and seriously sophisticated. Radiant skin, wine-stained lips and some real va-va-volume in the hair department gave this show an undeniable attitude.
