SS14 Beauty report: Milan Fashion Week
It's all in the detail
"Vampish makeup is always used for Gucci models, and this year, Frida Giannini has asked us to do something more sporty" explained Pat McGrath backstage in Milan. Taking up the task of connecting luxury and sport quickly, McGrath made emphasis on the eyes with thick, glossy, wet brick-brown hues, while stylist Luigi Muren combed models hair back with processed oil, Kérastase Elixir Ultime.
Rather on the contrary, Dsquared2 showed bombshell sexiness to perfection, we were schooled in the art of Hollywood actress sass – backcombed curls, bright lipstick and a smooth face under a layer of compact powder. The final touch? Long artificial nails the colour of tea roses, another symbol to scream femininity.
Against the backdrop of such bright, confident, iconic 'girls from the past', Alberta Ferretti offered a cute contrast with airy, nymph-like girls, each with light peachy make-up and soft wavy tresses tied back into loose braids.
