Beauty tutorials from Milan Fashion Week

We take a look behind the scenes at the hair and makeup for three of Milan's hottest fashion shows -- Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and Versace. All three shows benefited from the talents of hair-and-beauty dream team Guido Palau and Pat McGrath. Here's how they pulled it off.

Hairstylist Guido Palau gave the models their cinematic, wet look hair using a mixture of different products. In fact he called it less of a hairstyle "and more of an attitude." Hair was cut to hang just over the shoulders and drenched in a fixing product and Palau then added an oil just before the girls hit the runway for extra shine. Beauty legend Pat McGrath described the makeup as "a done-undone look." The smoky eye and burgundy lips were blotted away for a faded glamour effect.

The Dolce & Gabbana look was inspired by the Byzantine cathedral at Monreale in Sicily. McGrath was going for an aristocratic "but at the same time modern" look. Sophia Loren soft-winged eyes started with pencil but were drawn out with liquid eyeliner. "Tons and tons of mascara" and a smudge effect complete the look. Models' faces were covered with concealer, and lips were a mixture of different tones of matte red. Palau added a bit of product and teased hair into a soft up-do.

The makeup look at Versace was a "groomed, healthy, glowing version of punk" according to McGrath. Blusher went on the cheeks, and the girls were given light brown eyelids and heavy mascara. A nude blush color on the lips and strong eyebrows finished the look. Palau blowdryed the hair, then side-parted and lifted the front with extra product and heat to give a quiff effect. The ladylike but "boyish" style was held in place with hairspray on top but swished loose at the ends.

    The Shocking Reason You May Be Tired

    So my doctor prescribed two medications, including a synthetic thyroid hormone to replace what my body was having trouble making. It turns out that my story is actually quite common, especially since the risk for thyroid disorders tends to increase as you get older-and women are up to eight times more likely than men to develop one. I was also surprised to learn that having an underactive thyroid is the most common problem, but it can be tricky to diagnose. The gold standard for measuring …
