Armani Privé Haute Couture collection was about blending the old traditions of couture with a modern vision, which was also reflected in the makeup look.
Expressed in a sculptural, almost regal style, this season’s collection from Armani features sumptuous fabrics crafted into spectacular pieces and gowns in alternating patterns of black and champagne. Linda Cantello, International Make-Up Artist Giorgio Armani, spoke of her inspiration:
“A mashup of couture reference reworked in a modern wearable way. A little bit 50s, 60s and 80s. Pink and black combined to create a thoroughly modern makeup”.
Prepare and moisturise the skin with Armani Prima Glow-On Moisturising Balm, making sure the cream is absorbed before adding the foundation. Then apply Power Fabric foundation in appropriate shade where needed, but don’t go too heavy so you still have the natural glow.
Apply a thin black line of Smooth Silk Eye Pencil in #4 close to lashes and blend. Curl lashes and sweep on the Eyes To Kill Classico mascara in black on top lashes only.
To get that natural glossy effect use the Lip Magnet liquid lipstick, in shade #500, “Maharajah” in the eye socket to define a clean line and then blend it softly till the outer edge of eye, but leave the eyelid free of colour. Then, add more lipstick under the eye, leaving a gap between lash and colour. Go in with the Smooth Silk Eye Pencil in black from inner water line until center and smudge slightly.
BLUSH & LIPS
Use Neo Nude A-Blush in shade #50 on cheeks and dab Lip Maestro in shade #518 on the lips.
