Giorgio Armani Privé SS 2012

”Metamorphosis”:that’s how the theme for the new Summer/Spring 2012 Giorgio Armani Privé Make Up Collection is called and it’s all about sensuality!

Linda Cantello, International MUA  for Giorgio Armani, shares with us her secrets and her techniques.

To prepare the skin, Linda Cantello uses Regenessence High Lift Cream. Then she applies Fluid Master Primer, a subtle base for even complexion. To finish with skin she is using Maestro, the first invisible foundation which promises to do miracles. Unfortunately, Maestro will be available in October, so we will have to wait…

For the eyes she uses a mix of the pastel green eyeshadow from the palette #1 and the Gloss d’Armani #100. To finish the look she applies lots of Eyes To Kill Lash Stretching mascara layers.

As for the lips, Linda goes for a natural and fresh look. She creates her own nude shade blending different colors like Gloss d’Armani No105 and 508. Don’t forget to give your lips a touch of light using the golden hue from palette #1.

GIORGIO ARMANI A/W 2011-2012: BOUDOIR

Mails about the new trends for a/w 2011-2012 keep coming… But what really caught my attention was Giorgio Armani Collection. Pink shades, black eyeliner and soft lips are the basics of the collection. What else can I ask? You know I love this combination!

The Giorgio Armani woman is dressed with soft pink make- up because her image suggests a world of dreams and tales of passion. Just like a mysterious sweet fairy.

Linda Cantello, Armani’s international Make-up Artist, creates something more that make up…an illusion! Inspired from the Boudoir, she plays with soft pink tones, shadow and light and the results are amazing! She gives us some great tips on how to create the following look.

”A NEW FEMININITY.
A CONTRAST BETWEEN SOFT SATINY DUSTY PINKS ON EYES, LIPS AND CHEEKBONES, WITH A CONTEMPORARY TAKE ON EYELINER, TWO BLACK PARALLEL LINES WORN UNDER THE EYE AS OPPOSED TO ON TOP. STRENGHT AND SOFTNESS. A SENSUAL NEW VISION FOR WOMEN”– Linda Cantello
SKIN

Prepare the skin with Crema Nera and then apply Fluid Master Primer. Then mix the High Precision Retouch and Fluid Sheer and apply on forehead, cheeks and chin. Massage into your skin working from the middle of the face towards the outside.
Don’t forget to highlight your cheekbons, temples, nose and chin.
Contour: smudge under the cheekbones with the Smooth Silk Eyebrow Pencil number 3 (taupe) and dab with your fingers to fade it away.

EYES
On the eyes create a shadow between the mobile lid and the arcade as a half circle from outward to inward with Smooth Silk Eyebrow Pencil(taupe).
With a flat brush apply Rouge d’ Armani number 100 on mobile lid towards the arcade over the shadow that you created before. Swipe the flesh tone and champagne shade from the Fall 2011 Palette Number 3. Go from the lid to the eyebrows.
Then, using a supple smaller brush, apply the same shades under the eyes on the outside and on the inside corners.

Using a black pencil draw a clean line inside the eyes.With a black eyeliner draw a straight line from the outside corner of the eyes outward. Create a second straight line starting from the bottom line of the eyes. The two eyeliner lines should be parallel.
Complete with Eyes to Kill Excess Mascara Number 1(black) to top lashes only!

LIPS
Mix Rouge D’ Armani Beige 108 and Pink 525 from the Fall Collection 2011. Apply and you are ready!!!
For a perfect finish powder the T-zone lightly with a large brush using the Luminous Silk Powder Number 2.
