All the Best Looks at Milan Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019-2020 Men’s Runways

January is probably one of the busiest months in the fashion industry – right after February and September – as it is jam-packed with back-to-back shows, from Men’s runways in London, Milan and Paris and finally, the big Haute Couture week in the French Capital. The street style crowd was as stylish and fashion-forward as the models walking down the men’s runways and we can’t say we’re not looking forward for what’s yet to come.

One thing we’ve noticed is that there was a massive shift in the menswear department, as the trends have been fluctuating more and more towards gender ambiguity. That ultimately means: less differentiation and more androgyny. That said, the men’s runways were chockfull of colorful style for Fall/Winmter 2019-2020 and it all seems very promising. Designers have all shown off their best taste in menswear, from big brands and fashion houses such as Versace, Prada, Dolce &Gabbana and Emporio Armani – amongst others – and they’ve really upped the ante for the next round of runway shows in Paris.

And so, we’ve rounded up the best looks to hit Milan Fashion Week.

Easy Festive Party Glam 

It can be overwhelming getting yourself ready for all the holiday parties, so here’s what I like to do to keep beauty anxiety at bay. I basically come up with a look and just repeat it throughout the week to make it easier for me. Here is a go to look that doesn’t take too much time. 

I start off with the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup applied with my Beauty Blender. Then, Bobbi Brown Instant Full Cover Concealer is perfect to give me the coverage I need with barely any rest. After filling in my eyebrows, I’m ready to start on the eyes. Using the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in Trooper Black, I line my eyes with a little cateye flick at the end. After applying Afterglow Blush in Rapture by Urban Decay, I’m ready for lips and MAC’s Ruby Woo Retro Matte lipstick is perfect for this look. After lots of mascara and preferably some falsies, I am ready to go. You can change this up by adding more eye makeup, but I like to keep it clean and just focus on the liner and bold lips.
