 Milan Fashion Week is off to a good start. The packed schedule started on Wednesday, February 24. According to Vogue, the "digitally focused" event began with Italian fashion houses Missoni, Alberta Ferreti and Fendi. As reported by CNN, Missoni set the tone with their star-studded film entitled, "Jungle Red."


Their new designs were showcased by models and celebrities like Hailey Beiber, Stella Maxwell, Winnie Harlow and Soo Joo Park. Thursday audiences saw Max Mara, Bluemarine, Prada, Moschino and Emporio Armani. While smudged black eyeliner took over New York Fashion Week and dramatic blush ruled in London, the makeup from Milan is more understated. Allure lists the best beauty looks from Milan Fashion Week.

Smokey olive green eyeshadow was the trend for Max Mara.

Models from the Max Mara fashion show sported smokey eyes. Instead of the usual gray and black tones, olive green was the color of the day. The neutral green shade was paired with bold, well-groomed eyebrows and barely-there mascara. The cheeks were free of blush and the lips were just coated with lip balm.

Slick-backed hair and metallic lids for Prada.

Prada's hairstylist Guido Palau went with slicked-back hair for their models. The front and middle part were brushed back while the sides were left to hang in their natural texture with just a little product to keep them in place. Dame Pat McGrath went metallic on the eyelids with shades of gold and silver.

Bluemarine models were seen with minimal makeup. Instead, makeup artist Inge Grognard went with body jewelry. She designed butterflies out of crystals and placed them on the models' arms and chest. This can be easily replicated at home with body rhinestone stickers.

Moschino went wild with body paint.

Aside from their "Jungle Red" segment, Moschino stood out from the neutral makeup looks with body paint. Makeup artist Kabuki used bold strokes of greens and blues on the models' face and arms for the museum setting of one segment of the show.

Alberta Ferretti

Models went au naturel on the Alberta Ferreti catwalk.

Hairstylist Sebastien Richard kept Millennials and Generation Z happy with a slightly off-center part before pulling models' hair back into low buns. Lead makeup artist Petros Petrohilos went very simple of the makeup. He kept the lips and cheeks bare and used a touch of taupe eyeshadow on the eyelids.

No. 21

No. 21 went with graphic eyeliner for their models.

Makeup artist Luciano Chiarello went for modern and slightly gothic on the models' eyes for No. 21. He did sharp and graphic black wings and drew them a bit past the eyebrows. He topped of the fierce eye look with some metallic gunmetal gray on the inner corners of the eye. The models' hair were kept in their natural textures

Fendi kept faces fresh and brows strong.

Guido Palau also did the hair for Fendi. While he kept things simpler for Prada, he went for eye-catching cornrow buns for Fendi. The hairstyle looked stunning against Fendi's luxe designs and accessories. Makeup artist Peter Philips kept the makeup classic with fresh, glowing skin and thick, bold brows.

There are still four days to go for Milan Fashion Week. Fashionistas can still catch big Italian fashion houses like Etro, Marni, Giorgio Armani, Ferragamo and Pucci. Italian legends Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana will close out the week on Monday, March 1.
