For Armani Privé SS18 collection, Linda Cantello, International Make-up artist for Giorgio Aramani Beauty, interprets an ethereal beauty look for the airy and light collection.
Cantello says: “Inspiration from Mr. Armani was ‘Opal’. A cloudy sky, aurora borealis. Pastel shades mattified to make an indiscernible nuage of colors.”
Armani Privé Spring Summer 2018 was a pure reflection of the changing a nature of the white clouds, with intricate details recalling its airiness and light colours. Including technical fabrics and watercoloured art prints, the dreamlike elegant range was one of a kind.
For a glowing complexion result, Linda started off by massaging the skin with Armani Prima Glow-on Moisturising Balm, then applied the Power Fabric on the face, the lips and eyelids to ensure a natural skin tone. Then used the Lip Maestro in shade #506 as a blush that gave the models a gorgeously soothing subtle pink coloured cheeks.
As for the eyes, there were three shades of Eye Tint in #35 Jade Reflection, #32 Blue Reflection, #33 Rose Reflection. All blended together to create a light pastel wash of colour. Then highlighted the face with the Face Fabric in #0 Matte White, which was applied on the brow bone, t-zone, on top of lip and on chin.
To finish off the look, used the Eccentrico mascara in #1 Obsidian Black, with added lashes on the top and bottom. And for the lips, a litte dab of Lip Maestro #505 was used on the inside and on the center of the lip.
Finally, powder was brushed all over the face using the Luminous Silk Compact, for a refreshing matte finish.
