The first two days of the Italian fashion establishment were filled with statement-making makeup
and beautiful updos

to fresh faces with standout brows
to groovy, side chignons with sideswept bangs
to Elvis-esque pompadours
And as the top designers continue to display their masterpieces over the weekend, beauty trends are consistently being made including a modern twist on the smoky eye
, gloomy, texturized layers, and luxurious locks.
Read on for the details on three bellissimo

The smoky eye is a classic makeup look that will never go out of style. And the beauty teams for DSquared2
and Rocco Barocco
perfected a heavily, layered eye that was slightly faded and intensified with vivacious red pouts. Pulling the hair away from the models' faces helped to bring this intensely glamorous look to the forefront.

is a major trend on the fall runways, so it was no surprise when we spotted this look at Emporio Armani
and Alberta Ferretti
. The style added edge to the ultra-feminine designs, according to Guido Palau
, the lead hairstylist for Redken at Ferretti. "I wanted to create a slight veil over the face and eyes with the front section for a haunted look, more Tim Burton, that still looks romantic but dark in a sinister way."

The effortless, sexy hair models wore at Versace
's Fall 2010 runway shows made our hearts feel at ease that we won't have to spend much of the season mimicking complicated 'dos. And Guido Palau, who was the mastermind behind the hair at Versace
, would certainly agree. "The style is ultra sexy but natural, like you can run your hands through it," said Palau. "Kind of a relaxed, style that doesn't look too done, that gives an extra sense of lax sexiness to the Versace woman."
