Prada Beauty: an iconic Milanese phenomenon

Prada Beauty is the cosmetic brand of Mrs Miuccia Prada’s empire. When it comes to the Milan Fashion Week is not just about the clothes. The experience is surely enhanced by the magic happening on the models’ faces. Here below there are a few tips by Lynsey Alexander , global make up artist in charge of the cosmetic side of Prada’s fashion shows.

Prada Beauty by Lynsey Alexander

Face

Lynsey Alexander starts by preparing the skin with Prada Skincare, employing Prada Augmented Skin The Essence as the first step. This transformative 2-in-1 toner and micro-peel essence optimizes and renews skin texture while gently exfoliating to prepare skin for the steps that follow.

Next, Lynsey applies Prada Augmented Skin The Serum, a cream to water serum to even and refine the skin tone, before applying Prada Augmented Skin The Cream, ensuring its complete absorption before application of the base. Lynsey then applies Prada Reveal Foundation to achieve a naturally diffused, soft-matte finish.

As the final step and to add dimension, Lynsey gently pads The Serum across the cheekbones to create a glossy veil, then dabs a minimal amount of Prada Monochrome Lipcolor in nude hues, mostly employing the B13 Marron for the runway, and the Prada Balm for a diffused glow on the cheeks.

Brows

To frame the eyes with softness, Lynsey re-invents the use of the foundation by delicately brushing the Prada Reveal Foundation onto brows, sculpting a gentle and minimal arc and centering focus to the eyes.

Lynsey finishes by lightening the brows with nude shades of the Prada Dimensions Eyeshadow palettes. Depending on skin tone, Lynsey adapts the use of palettes 05 Pure, 01 Portrait, and 03 Pulse to achieve a delicate yet intriguing look.

Lips

To prepare the lips, Lynsey applies Prada Balm as a lip primer to moisturize and enhance the natural look of the lips. Lynsey then dabs on the NEW Prada Monochrome Lipcolor Nude lipsticks, highlighting the shades P159 Nudo and B13 Marron to curate a hydrating, soft-matte finish that flatters all skin tones. The result is a uniform, diffused lip that perfectly complements a modern nude face.
