Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani takes inspiration from fine photography techniques to enhance light on the complexion this season.
“ Enhance your face, eyes and lips with light. The new holiday collection with formulas and shades especially created to maximize your radiance, will bring your glow to a whole new level, whatever the light.” – Linda Cantello, International Makeup Artist Giorgio Armani
Brand: Giorgio Armani Beauty
Collection: Armani Beauty Night Light Holiday Look 2016
Creator: Linda Cantello, International Makeup Artist Giorgio Armani
Theme: This new collection from Giorgio Armani Beauty draws inspiration from ‘Light Painting’, a technique well-known to photographes that consists of creating luminous drawings using a subtle balance of photographic skill, darkness and sources of light.
Focus: the collection’s bold and glamorous beauty look places a bright focus on the eyes.
Collector Palette: The oversized Holiday Palette features a black lacquer case adorned with a light-painted version of the Armani signature. The case has two tiers: one for eye makeup and one for a luminous complexion.
Eye beauty: The first tier of the palette boasts ten pearly and matte eyeshadows ranging from white to jet-black, with shades of beige and brown in between. Contrasting colours create a play of shadow and light.
Innovation: The secret to the luminosity of the five pearly shadows is that over 50 percent of the pigments are pearlescent, with pearls in gold, taupe & iridescent brown shades. This ‘high pearl simplex’ technology produces a soft and comfortable texture with a velvety finish.
Dry Matte Technology: The five matte shadows promise the ultimate in comfort thanks to a unique liquid binder to the classic matte formula.
Ecstasy Lacquer lip shades: This ultra-comfortable lip colour strikes the perfect balance between the shine of a gloss and the comfort and hydration of a balm. The formulation combines water, colour, glycerine and intense pigments. There are six new shades: two nudes, iridescent brown, ebony brown, warm pink and red-tinged pink.
