Milan Fashion Week is synonymous with elegance, luxury, and beauty looks marked by simplicity. This year, even despite the circumstances, still lived up to that expectation. In fact, Milan Fashion Week Spring 2021's best beauty trends are proving consistent even during a time that is completely unpredictable.

Those trends speak to the resilient spirit of the city, which just last season, was grappling with an inundation of COVID-19. Bouncing back in a way that only the high-end fashion metropolis could, this season, Milan made good on its unspoken promise of makeup looks that never go out of style. Think intricate yet wearable eyeshadows, classic lips, and smooth, satin skin. In the midst of uneasiness and uncertainty for the future, Milan Fashion Week proved to be one of the things that still felt classic and unchanged.

Accompanying the sleek fashions of bold color patterns, varying textures, and skimming silhouettes this year were makeup looks that included super-sculpted brows, bold red lips, soft false lashes, and sultry eyeliners. Because, come on — what else would you expect from brands like Fendi and Missoni? The masterful yet effortless couplings are a mark of Italian runways and prove that no matter how the ebbs and flows of beauty trends may drift, Milan Fashion Week will always provide us with something to look forward to.
