It was not easy to see the makeup of Giorgio Armani models (admiring Armani Prive FW 2017/18) behind a flirty, weightless mesh of veils. And succumbing to the charm of the magical play of matte and satin shades, we asked the author of make-up masterpieces, makeup artist Linda Cantello, to tell how and with what means this unusual make-up, full of dignity and inner drama, could be repeated. This step by step instruction is dedicated to those who sincerely believe that minimalism is not only a requirement of the times, but also a luxury of a special order.
“The maestro wanted to create an image with a magical smoky look - without clear lines and transitions, so I used a mix of shades from the magic palette Holiday Palette. We managed to create a subtle multifaceted shadow that gave the look a mystery and intrigue that literally fascinate”(Linda Cantello)
Armani PrimGlow-on Moisturizing Balm - prepares skin for perfect tone
Place the product on your face and gently massage it into the skin. Make sure the balm is absorbed before applying the tone.
High Precision Retouch - corrects light skin imperfections
Use the concealer to mask dark circles under the eyes, age spots, redness and other visible imperfections. Apply a drop to the bridge of the nose and the Cupid's Bow to visually brighten and brighten these areas.
Maestro Fusion - makes the skin perfect
Apply three drops of a tonal veil of the required shade (there are ten of them in the Maestro Fusion line) on the hand and spread over the face with quick, light movements, moving from the center to the periphery. Carefully blend the edges of the coverage from the wings of the nose to the cheeks, temples and ears, and from the chin along the jaw line.
Eye & Brow Maestro - creates perfect eyebrows
With the multifunctional Eye & Brow Maestro, carefully work out the eyebrows, gently darkening the voids of the spaces. There is no need to neat and imitate individual hairs: work with a brush as a stamp - the eyebrows should be dense, but slightly blurred.
Fluid Sheer + Holiday Palette - gives a smoky look
For eye makeup, use a shimmery fluid mix (in shade # 2) and several shades (matte and shimmery) from the eyeshadow palette: black, gray, plum and tin-colored shade - apply them to the area of the moving eyelid, blending well. Add some white and gold and bring out a light shadow almost to the edge of the eyebrow.
Eccentrico - lengthens eyelashes and makes them voluminous
Apply one layer of mascara to the upper lashes (do not paint over the lower ones).
Apply Rouge d'Armani Lipstick # 101 Sand: use a brush for a thicker velvet finish and fingertips for a translucent sensual finish. Blot your lips with a tissue to remove excess gloss.
Linda Cantello advises leaving lips colorless if their natural color is bright enough.
