Make-Up Tutorial: The Giorgio Armani Privé S/S 2021 Couture Show
In-person events may be far and in betwen, but this isn't stopping make-up artists from presenting looks that let us dream. Here's your guide:
Giorgio Armani’s collections tell the story of his journey, his sense of autonomy and his independence from transitory trends. And his recent Armani Privé show for Paris Haute Couture Week wasn't an exception. Presented for the first time in Palazzo Orsini, the heart of the storied Italian designer’s Milanese atelier, the presentation offered an array of dreamy looks that pay homage to the Italian fashion capital. These included a pearl-grey shiny tweed jacket with gauzy embroidered trousers, fitted velvet separates and evening dresses like the heavily embroidered sea coloured slip dress and the finale look, an electric-blue frock featuring Fortuny pleating. The show was undoubtedly a delight for beauty lovers as well. While celebrity-loved Armani’s creativity was interpreted in knockout fashion pieces, Linda Cantello translated this vision into make-up.
“The make-up was a combination of the Armani DNA in soft hues to enhance the femininity of the collection and was inspired by the beauty and history of Palazzo Orsini,” the International Make-up Artist at Giorgio Armani Beauty, said in a statement.
While the models walked the mirror-lined, softly opulent gallery, we saw how the force in the make-up industry chose to balance the collection’s colour palette with a neutral beauty look. Cantello, who has a career that spans over three decades, did add a pop of contemporary colour however, by including a hint of neon pink on the lips.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to get the look by the beauty legend:
To get ultimate results, it’s always important to prep and massage the skin, so your first step is to apply some Armani Prima Glow-On Moisturising Cream, ensuring the cream is absorbed before adding the base. Your next step is to pat on some Armani Luminous Silk Concealer where needed, making sure to use the most appropriate shade to match your skin tone. Then for the final move for this part of the beauty look, you ought to apply that all-important Armani Luminous Silk Foundation to create a natural seamless complexion.
To get the gorgeous eye look, the first thing you need to do is apply Armani Eye Tint in #43 (“Ice”) on the eyelids. Go right up to the eyebrows, doing this softly, yet gunning for a visible result. Then all you need to do is reach for the Armani Smooth Silk Eye Penicil in Black to use on the base of the lashes, smudging it down and out to create a shadow.
For head-turning puckers, your primary step is to apply some Rouge D’Armani Matte in #101 (“Scene”) on the lips. Afterwards, continue by dabbing some Armani New Nude Ecstasy Balm in #1 on top, which gives your lips a healthy sheen finish. For a final touch, get hold of some some Armani Luminous Silk Glow Fusion Powder in a suitable shade and have some fun powdering before you show off the stellar look.
