Milan Fashion Week Spring 2010 Makeup Trends: Dolce&Gabbana

Show: Dolce&Gabbana Spring 2010 Collection
Lead Makeup Artist: Pat McGrath for Dolce&Gabbana The Make Up
Makeup Trend: Bold red lips
The Inspiration: “This season our inspiration stemmed from the passionate Latin woman melded with our Sicilian upbringing,” said Domenico Dolce. Stefano Gabbana added, “The cultures are very similar and we wanted the beauty look to be reflective of this passion and sensuality.”

At the Dolce&Gabbana Spring/Summer 2010 Ready to Wear show in Milan, The Designer’s aptly named their show “Heritage,” which showcased their Sicilian roots and signature sartorial tailoring laced with a dose of tango. On the runway, each model donned a bold red lip created using Dolce&Gabbana The Make Up.

How to get the makeup look:

Backstage Pat McGrath prepped skin with the foundation, to create a flawlessly natural canvas. Next, McGrath sculpted cheeks using the blush, in Warm.


On eyes, McGrath blended a taupe shadow from the eyeshadow quad in Elegance along the crease and lower lids. Using a damp brush, McGrath then applied the white shimmer shadow from the eyeshadow duo in Rose along the upper lips close to lashes. To complete the eye look, multiple coats of the mascara, in Black were brushed through top lashes.

To create an alluring pout, McGrath noted that she wanted to create, “a rich, velvet, red shade.” To achieve a deep burgundy red, McGrath painted lips with a mix of the classic lipstick in Devil, Dahlia, and Ultra.
