Louis Vuitton used exaggeratedly long and thick fake eyelashes, along with long braided hair to create a bohemian and doll-like effect on his catwalk models. To recreate this look, leave hair straight, and simply braid a few small sections into miniature plaits. Use a full coverage foundation to achieve flawless skin, add a small amount of blusher to the apples of your cheeks, before using thick false eyelashes to give your eyes definition. Nude lips and thick, defined eyebrows will complete this look perfectly.
Yves Saint Laurent
For women battling extreme hair loss, this daring trend will be well received: buzz cuts are back in fashion. Yves Saint Laurent was the first to showcase this bold style, which was soon adopted by other big name fashion companies such as Gucci, Lanvin and Versace. Gucci paired this with oversized glasses and buttoned up shirts to give the models a quirky edge. The buzz cut looks great on all hair colours, and for women experiencing female hair loss it can often be a low maintenance and easy look to pull off, while still looking fashionable.
Girls on the Prada catwalk showed off futuristic gold lips, with skin clear of any other makeup except for a touch of mascara. Hair was made to look wet, and short fringes were slicked down onto the models’ foreheads. For an easy, everyday look this can be refashioned at home using hair gel to get the wet look yourself. Gold lipsticks are available at most beauty shops for a low price, and these can also be used on the eyelids for a versatile and quick dash of colour before you leave the house.
Puns have become a new fashion statement, which combines a ponytail and bun to create a gorgeous hybrid of the two. This messy style is easy to achieve, just begin to pull your hair into a low ponytail, and then on the last loop of the hair tie do not pull the hair all the way through. This will create a small loop, with a long bit of hair hanging down. This is ideal for women with hair loss at the base of the scalp as it can very easily cover any balding patches in seconds.
Miu Miu gave models low pigtails using ornate headbands to create a fierce but gorgeous style. Models were given a centre parting, and side bangs were loosely stuck to the forehead and side of the face to soften the look. Lips were painted in tones of blue and berry red to finish off the look. Get this look at home using small hairbands to secure the low ponytails, and hairspray to keep bangs in place. Ombre lips can be achieved using a dark red lipstick as a base colour all over the lips, and then by applying a blue lipstick to the inner part of the lips and blending this outwards.
At Alexis Mabille they recreated a 70s look on their models using tropical colours on the eyes in stripes, while blusher was applied heavily on the cheekbones. This look can be toned down for everyday use, and pale blues and yellows can be applied in stripes across the eyelids, while blusher can be applied gently to the cheeks over the top of a light coverage foundation.
Dolce & Gabbana
Elegant makeup was used to give models a soft and luminous look on the catwalk this year, with lined eyes and plump lips. Messy up dos were wrapped with headbands, crowns and headscarves for a stylish and carefree style. To get this look, apply a light coverage foundation to your face, and then dab a highlighter on the high parts of your face such as your cheekbones, nose, cupids bow and brow bones. Apply black eyeliner above your eyes and finish with a small, feline flick at the end. Lips can be lined with a pale pink liner, and then filled in with a neutral lipstick or lip gloss. To complete the look, hair can be thrown up in a messy bun and finished with a sparkly headband.
