Giorgio Armani’s Spring collection introduces colours of nature. The collection is available at Brown Thomas Dublin and Cork from the 20th of Januray 2011.
Transluminence Face Palette (€35.50)
Sculpt the face with frost bitten Sheer Translucent Blush presented in the spring signature face palette
Illuminate and perfect the complexion with a veil of delicate Abelia Pink Fluid Sheer N°7 super light natural beauty enhancer. Its ultra fine pearly particles instantly impart a glow to the whole face.
Transluminence Eye Palette
Blend and layer the four full, rich, colour-intense translucent tones. Apply rich purple iris with an eye brush to the eyelid and add dewy forest green. These will fuse together into a vibrant blue turquoise. Render the effect even more luminous with a layer of frozen silver. Open up the eye with a touch of silver on the inside corner. Outline the under eye or the eyelid with soft black eye colour, applied wet or dry. The frosty, radiant effect of the four spring garden eye colour-palette tones is accentuated by their new shiny, signature pale purple compact case.
Rouge d’Armani (€26)
The Rouge d’Armani frost bitten pink lip shades accentuate the fresh luminescent spring colour story. Complete the picture by painting your lips with the new star shade of Dawn Pink (518), or Early Morning Rose (508), or Petal Pink (503).
Day-Proof Pencils (€20.50)
For more intensity outline the inner eye with the new black Day-Proof Color Pencil. High-tech compact colour morphs into a fluid substance, creating an eye pencil that is a cross between a liner and a crayon. A soft, day-proof colour that glides on perfectly.Day-Proof Pencil shades: bark brown, leaf green and black.
The Spring Look:
This season the must-have look utilises a perfect harmony of diaphanous forest green and purple iris on eyes, contrasted with frozen pink light on skin and lips. The inspiration: fresh morning dew on a wild bunch of flowers.
Makeup artist Linda Cantello, who worked on the Armani spring/summer 2011 fashion show, says: “Imagine the richest purple and the deepest green both enlivened by a frozen silver. A soft black completes the palette, to be worn alone as liner or to add depth to smoky eyes. Freshened by the softest baby lips, a beautiful frosty blush completes this new way of facing spring in the depths of winter.”
I’m excited by the idea of forest green and purple iris – very original. I’m a hug fan of pink lipstick so I’m in trouble here!
