For the new Giorgio Armani Prive collection the makeup was "Eclectic minimalist makeup of East meets West," states Linda Cantello, International makeup Artist for Giorgio Armani Cosmetics. We got the run-down of how to create the eyes and lips of the look.
1.EYES: Apply Fluid Sheer #2 with a blender brush over the eyelid, up to the eyebrow to create a luminous base. Then apply the beige-taupe shade in the Amber palette with the large eye contour brush to create a dewy natural eyelid. Design a graphic line following the eye socket, starting in inner corner. Design a graphic triangular shape that follows the natural direction of the eye in an upward movement. Fill in the shape using the matte black shade of Eyes to Kill palette #1. Add a smoky black line under the eye, starting in the middle and ending in external corner.
2. LIPS: First apply a thin layer of smooth silk lip pencil #3 over the entire lip and contour. Then use Lip Maestro shade #201 that gives depth to the colour. Apply the new Flash lacquer, crystal shine gloss shade #523.
