It's the end of MFW, and with that, I've decided to highlight another perspective of Fashion Week; backstage fashion and action. Pictures from backstage give the benefit of an up-close view of not only the clothes but the hair and makeup. I especially love backstage views of fashion shows because of the depiction of the work that goes into making the models (and ultimately the show) look like they do. Take a look!

Makeup has ranged from an edgy point, with smoldering eye makeup alongside plum and chocolate lip coloring, to a more classic look a simple winged eye and crimson hues on the lips. Designers like Gucci and Balanciaga chose a sort of wet look for the hair, going along the very apparent trend of slicked hair in these Milan fashion shows. It seemed that if the hair didn't look wet, it looked short; illustrated in numerous fashion shows for a sort of baseline hairstyle (Dolce and Gabbana not included).
