Franco Della Grazie for Cutler channeled the sensual mood of Venice with a contemporary “La Dolce Vita meets runway” updo. Subtle crimping gives the hairstyle body and texture that looks messy, yet elegant.

Aveda makeup artist Fawn Monique used warm earth toned brown shadows for the eyes and cheeks to reflect the gothic style architecture of Venice. Monique suggests “creating shadows with shades of brown to enhance your personal features.”

Use a bronzer for extra definition and to get an Italian sun-kissed look by sweeping it over your face with an oversized fluffy bronzer brush. Apply along your jawline and cheekbones (anywhere the sun would naturally hit) for a subtle glow.

The models at Rivini wore a hydrating muted lip gloss that had a serious shimmer effect–playing up the reflecting canals of water that inspired Vinieris.
