See the standout five hair & makeup looks spotted during Milan Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2023.

Boss Spring 2023

We have so many beauty trends to inspire and copy for the upcoming Spring-Summer 2023 season. We’ve hit New York and London, and now we are making our way to Milan Fashion Week, which is providing us with more and more dazzling makeup and hair beauty trends we will definitely be wearing this season.

The Milan Fashion Week always gives us plenty to talk about fashion and beauty looks. For this season, tons of colour and opulence are back. Milan is bringing back playful bold colours to brighten our days – whether into pieces or on makeup looks, and we are totally obsessed with all the proposals! Of course, there have been classic makeup with a hint of cool, too.

With Milan Fashion Week over another season, what were the biggest beauty trends? From Fendi’s ‘90s-inspired make-up looks to Moschino and Max Mara, these are the five best – and most wearable – hair and makeup sashaying down the runways at fashion week to try this Spring/Summer 2023. So, let’s have a look at them!

Fendi: Grunge Makeup & Hair

For the Spring 2023 season, Creative Director Kim Jones has taken inspiration from the ‘90s, reinterpreting them as the skin being kept nude and eyebrows “made to be a bit busier on most girls” while adding satin finishes. Besides, silver makeup has also been added to the model’s eye ade – a modern grunge must-have trend to copy this season.

As regards hairstyle, the brand opted for soft, blown-out waves – soft middle parting, letting the hair frame the face and the natural but modern makeup.

Max Mara: Neutral Colours Lips

Creative Director Ian Griffiths took cues from 1930s female intellectuals on the French Riviera, evoking feminine modernity with a neutral colour palette into its pieces. Models wore swimming caps in neutral colours while keeping their beauty looks simple and natural, with a tinge of coral lipstick which definitely helped to define the whole look.

Alberta Ferretti: Elegant & Glowing Makeup/Hair

The brand opted for wet hair looks “dedicated to dynamic and expressive women” – especially that slicked-back hairstyle. Glowing complexion was the star inspo for the makeup looks we saw on the runway of Alberta Ferretti.

Prada: False Eyelashes

Creative Directors Miuccia Prada & Raf Simons opted for striking beauty details that stood out on the Prada Spring-Summer 2023 runway. Makeu-up artist Pat McGrath applied thick, false and custom-made eyelashes onto models’ upper eyelids that “represents reflections of creative freedom,” said Pat. They were so long and straight that they fanned over the eyes, “draped with garments of custom faux lashes with intentional shape and placement. Paired with undetectable radiant skin and a nude lip, this look redefines what it means to add a faux lash,” Pat added.

Moschino: High Shine-Impact Makeup & Hair

For the Spring 2023 collection, the brand and makeup legend Kabuki constructed a classic take on glamour and extravaganza. Models wore immaculate skin, smoky eyes, and red lacquered lips (glossy). As regards hair, Kabuki opted for a more subdued style: a sleek bun kept neat with a generous slick of gel. Some models wore balloon animals on their heads; others had giant earrings on.
