Season after season, Milan Fashion Week always brings the glamour. From sparkles at Blumarine and Marni to streaks of neon liner at Versace and Giorgio Armani, Spring 2022 was no different. Here are the most glamorous hair and makeup trends from the Italian fashion capital.

Neon Eyeliner

Pat McGrath was the force behind the makeup at Versace, where “eyes were defined by theatrical paints in lime greens, plus electric and royal blue.” She used colors from her Mthrshp Mega: Celestial Odyssey eyeshadow palette (and FetishEyes Mascara for added drama).

’80s Glam

Makeup pro Peter Philips looked to both the glamour of Studio 54 and the work of legendary fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez for Fendi’s show. Smoky eyes, strong blush that extended upward to the temples, and a red lip (Rouge Dior 999 to be exact) made for bold beauty.

Berry-Stained Pouts

It was all about the supermodel era of the ’90s at Missoni, where MUA Hiromi Ueda coated models’ pouts in a deep, glossy berry shade. “The look was sophisticated but youthful; cool but chic,” the pro wrote on Instagram.

Headbands & Side Parts

Less was more at Max Mara, where makeup artist Aurore Gibrien used Glossier products to give models a minimalist look. Meanwhile, hairstylist Olivier Schawalder created a deep side part, finishing off with a headband for an equally simple-yet-chic look.

Face Jewelry

At Etro, the makeup and hair was kept relatively natural, but the addition of metallic rhinestones placed underneath some models’ eyes — courtesy of makeup artist Lisa Butler — lent a Euphoria-like twist to the beauty aesthetic.

Body Glitter

If you hadn’t heard, body shimmer is making a comeback — and the beauty at Blumarine solidified that. Makeup pro Inge Grognard put shiny, iridescent glitter on models’ faces, chests, and shoulders for an all-over glow reminiscent of the early aughts aesthetic.

Frosty Eyes

More icy blue lids appeared at Giorgio Armani, proving that yet another popular ’90s beauty trend is coming full circle. Paired with otherwise natural-looking makeup and hair, the color really pops in the best way.

Mermaid Glitter

In line with the theme of water at Marni, hairstylist Julien d’Ys created a wet look, coating models’ strands with shimmery shades of gray and aquamarine. Eyelids were given streaks of seawater blue, with silver glitter placed throughout for a mermaid effect.

Slicked-Back Hair

At Versace x Fendi, aka Fendace, Pat McGrath was inspired the “spirit of freedom, fun, and virtuosity,” creating a smoky eye and illuminated skin. Hair-wise, Guido Palau created a chic, slicked-back style, leaving tendrils to fall naturally in the front.
