The Hottest Beauty Trends From Milan Fashion Week 2022

Fashion week is a fleeting affair… It consumes a city entirely and just as quickly dissipates, leaving nothing behind but a trail of breadcrumbs to what will surely be the hottest, chicest trends of the upcoming season. Milan’s fashion week was brimming with twists, twins and trips, but don’t let that distract you, at its essence was the secret to looking your very best and on-trend this fall, and we’re here to break it down just for you.

Intergalactic Beauty

The 20s obsession with the beyond has been duly noted, and intergalactic beauty (from cyberpunk to extraterrestrial) has continued to make a huge impact on the runway. Maybe it’s the move away from looking snatched or just our obsession with that lobotomized stare, but light, airy makeup with a focus on ethereal blues, pinks, purples and greens is the simplest way to look out of this world this season. P.S if you have bleached brows you’re already halfway there! Don’t believe us? check out the many twins of Gucci’s MFW runway.

Goth Goddess

Punky, gothy aesthetics have been extremely popular online, and the fashion industry had definitely been drinking the Kool-Aid. Dark lips, spikey or slick hair, and Julia Fox ‘I did it myself’ eyes have been all the rage, and Versace just legitimised it. A sort of Mall Goth aesthetic has risen, with dark beauty looks that lean into deep pinks and purples were extremely popular, as well as just a touch of highlight on the inner corner. Our suggestions: invest in a liquid highlight, a dark lip and good Kohl liner – thank us later.

Bold Berry Lip

It feels as though dark, berry-toned lips were doomed to cheugyness just a second ago, and just as soon they’re back (in a big way). Time to rattle through your old makeup draw for your brownish or (god forbid) Burgandy matte lip. Spotted at Etro, Versace, Diesel, Antonio Marras and Philosophy by Lorenzo Serafini, this is absolutely a staple for the upcoming season.

Ethereal Highlight

There are always two camps to a trend, the edgier side and the purer side, this is the purer side. Fairy aesthetics, much like intergalactic aesthetics, have been on the rise for some time. With the switch from hard contouring to strobing, it makes sense that the newest trend to look like a pixie this fall is to blend an iridescent highlight into your upper cheek and around your eye.

Copper locks

Copper hair has had the beauty industry in a complete chokehold for the past year and a half. It was almost 8 months ago now since Kendall Jenner debuted her copper tresses on the catwalk, and we haven’t gotten sick of it yet. Real gingers alongside artificial oranges in shades from ariel to bronze have been extremely popular, as seen at the Marco Rambaldi show.

Industrial Nails

Ama Quashie is the creme de la creme when it comes to nails right now and, in our humble opinion, she has yet to miss. Debuting some metallic, textured nails – a continuation of the chrome trend we saw at New York Fashion Week for Tommy Hilfiger – the biggest nail trend of the season comes in the form of something sparkly enough for the girly girls and edgy enough for the rest.

Old Hollywood

We knew Old Hollywood aesthetics were back when Christin Siriano debuted red lips and Hepburn-inspired buns, but it’s Moschino’s campy ‘inflatables but make it fashion’ SS23 runway that has solidified classic aesthetics as officially back in. Red lips, feline flicks and slicked-back hairstyles that won’t move an inch are all on the cards for those looking to look classy and just a little bit extra this fall.

Body Glitter

This season saw a real uptick in glitter, after a slight slump in favour of rawer aesthetics. Body Glitter was seen most notably at Diesel as models strutted the runway in head-to-toe glitter in different sheens of red, green and silver. If this look seems like a bit too much commitment for you, consider going the Sportmax route, and foregoing a mani completely just to replace it with a sweep of silver glitter on the hands.
