Runway Beauty: Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010 at Milan Fashion Week

Sexy is an understatement when it comes to the mannish tailoring and see-through lacy pieces at Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010 show in Milan, not to mention those embellished updos and red lips!

To recreate the look, simply follow the 6 steps below:

* Start by evening out skin tone with a foundation (Dolce & Gabbana Perfect Finish Powder Foundation)and apply concealer as needed.

* Fill in your eyebrows with powder to create a fuller, arched look.

* Apply a shimmery beige eyeshadow on the eyelid and smoked it out with a darker brown on the crease (Dolce & Gabbana Smooth Eye Color Quad in Champagne).

* Curl your lashes and apply several coats of black mascara.

* Line the inner rim of the lower lashline with a white pencil to make the eyes really pop.

* Finish by applying a blue-based red lipstick like (Dolce & Gabbana Classic Lipstick in Dahlia, Ultra and Devil) with a lip brush for the utmost precision.

  1. Are the products mentioned above what they used for the show? There is definitely some blush/contour/highlight going on but for the life of me I cant get the same effect!

    • Yup those are the products listed on WWD but you can try Smashbox’s Step By Step Contour Kit for the contour/highlight effect. I have been using it every day for 2 weeks now and I will post a review shortly.
