The Only MFW SS16 Beauty Round-Up You Need

As next season's trends start to form in Milan, we take note of the beauty trends from backstage at the shows


The tousled hair and flushed cheeks at Versace created one of the most covetable looks from the spring/summer 2016 catwalks so far.

Bottega Veneta

For spring/summer 2016, the Bottega Veneta woman is naturally groomed and elegant. Flushed cheeks, strong brows and effortless hair characterised the look.

Dolce & Gabbana

In keeping with the inspiration behind the collection—Italy in Love—the make-up was flawless with dewy skin and a beautiful smoky feline flick. As is tradition with a Dolce & Gabbana show, hair was arranged into elegant, braided up-dos with floral headpieces.

Emporio Armani

Oxblood lips have been seen across the SS16 catwalks. At Emporio Armani, the make-up artist Linda Cantello used a matte formula set against a clean, fresh canvas.

Salvatore Ferragamo

Bold brows, dewy skin and a slicked back, low ponytail complimented the sleek, sophisticated collection at Salvatore Ferragamo.

Blue eye make-up was one of the biggest emerging trends in London, and it was also seen at Missoni in Milan. While the bold statement shadows aren’t a look we would take directly from the catwalk, it was fitting with the collection.

Roberto Cavalli

Traditionally, the make-up at Roberto Cavalli is a smoky eye. However for spring/summer 2016, the look was minimal with just a flush on the cheeks and a coat of mascara on the eyes. In keeping, the hair was more chic and groomed than usual.

The beauty at Prada always hints at a beauty trend, however we’re not sure we’ll be willing to paint our lips with glitter or slick down our baby hair for SS16…

Rustic, earthy tones across the eyes is another trend-in-the-making for spring. At Blugirl, the look was combined with a shiny  slicked-back low ponytail for a more polished, elegant finish.

The make-up at Fendi gave the term ‘bold brows’ a whole new meaning. The thick black lines were painted across a canvas of perfect skin.

Max Mara

While the red and green painted brows at Max Mara aren’t a look we’d channel off the catwalk, they did bring an interesting splash of colour to the trends.

Mixing textures and adding plenty of height, the hair was equally as daring.

Interestingly, Moschino’s beauty look was both flattering and wearable for spring/summer 2016. The Sixties-style flick against beautifully glowing skin was the kind of beauty we want now, as well as next season.

The look at Emilio Pucci is always a covetable one. With loosely textured hair and creamy, dewy, gorgeous skin, the Pucci woman is, yet again, who we aspire to be.

The trend for fresh complexions also continued at Gucci. Strategic highlighter gave the skin extra radiance, while the hair was glossy and groomed.

Alberta Ferretti

Tanned skin, brushed-up brows and a loose, effortless up-do: there was little not to love about the beauty look from Alberta Ferretti for spring.
