Every season the Gucci glossy-posse storms the runway with beauty looks that leave us weak at the knees. From perfect plum pouts to daring smoky eyeshadows and clean dewy skin, we delve into the runway archives and use Gucci cosmetics to recreate the make-up looks with lasting power. Here’s how to achieve perfectly prepped skin with minimal make-up required.


There hasn’t been a year where barely-there make-up hasn’t been a popular choice across the runways. But, is it as achievable as it appears? For some, going nude is as daunting as wearing a full set of false lashes and hot pink lipstick.

Well panic not, with a smudge of liner here and dot of nude lippie there, we will have you looking as enviably undone as the models. #MinimalEffortRequired.




  • Always prep your skin by cleansing, toning and moisturising.
  • Using your fingertips, apply a pea-sized amount of primer on your forehead, nose, cheeks and chin.
  • With a foundation brush, apply a light covering of foundation followed by a luminous concealer to disguise blemishes and imperfections.
  • Set your foundation with a dusting of finishing powder.


  • Sweep the top right shade of Gucci’s Tuscan Storm eyeshadow quad into the the crease of the eye to create depth.
  • Next, frame the eye with the darkest shade of shadow from the same quad, by dabbing into the upper lash line with a brush.
  • Under the eyes, close to the lash line, softly blend Gucci’s Iconic Gold shadow to define.
  • Highlight the brow bone and inner corners of the eye with the top left shade of the Tuscan Storm quad.
  • Curl lashes with two coats of mascara to the top lashes only.
  • Fill in brows sculpting pencil if needed.


  • Add a dab of lip balm for a subtle and healthy sheen.
