All that glitters and glows in hair and beauty at Milan Fashion Week

AS all eyes turn to the Paris virtual runway we are In The Pynck with what happened in hair and makeup at Milan Fashion Week, and what an eye-opener it was. The Autumn/Winter 2021 collections were many things from shaggy hairstyles to slick-backed looks, glitteringly vivid eyes and minimalist basics. It’s too soon to tell what the trends will bring although one thing is certain – gone are last season’s nude tones.

Max Mara has put together a dark-eyed palette of smoky smudges accented by olive-green eye shadow lids framed by confidently groomed brows and minimalist mascara and face.

Fendi hairstylist guru Guido Palau has put together a classic look of sleek, tightly braided cornrows offset in low buns while others walked the side-part look while shaggy hairstyles also featured. The Fendi look spoke volumes with brows created by Peter Philips in a bold and timeless creation, and glitter made an unforgettable statement when paired with uncompromising black eyeliner.

The Valentino look went for knife-edged precision hair by Guido Palau along with asymmetrical side partings and fuss-free fine looks. Makeup by Dame Pat McGrath celebrated the timeless look with ruby-red lips and eyes with attitude.

Pat McGrath and Guido Palau went avant-garde in creating makeup and hair for Dolce & Gabbana virtual runway look. Of 135 designs on the runway no model appeared the same from electric hair to brightly accented lids.

The renowned hairstylist Guido Palau created a sharp contrast from last year’s blunt cuts with his runway sleek styles off the forehead, juxtaposed with naturally hanging ends for Prada while Dame Pat McGrath blended glittering metal-hued eyeshadows of silver and gold.
