Giorgio Armani’s Tokyo Gardens Limited Edition Makeup Collection
Italian fashion designer Giorgio Armani is paying tribute to the elemental beauty of Japan with his Spring 2018 Makeup Collection called ‘Tokyo Gardens.” Marrying the joy of spring with an ode to Japanese beauty and elegance, this prestige makeup collection celebrates creativity, individuality and playfulness. Vibrant floral and light-reflecting nudes for lips pair with a palette of subtly shimmering pastel Eye Tints.
“A new way to wear romantic pastels, toughened up with black and white, and preferably lashings of mascara,” says Linda Cantello, Giorgio Armani International Makeup Artist. She works hand-in-hand with Mr. Armani on every beauty collection and launch.
The Tokyo Gardens collection was designed to effortlessly transform from subtle to stunning. You can wear just a wash of colour or create a more dramatic effect depending on your mood.
One of my very favourite Giorgio Armani Beauty products is his Eye Tint. This season, he’s reformulated it to create a palette of ultra-sheer shimmering pastel shades. Large quartz pearl particles, which are imperceptible to the touch, create a multi-dimensional effect. The resulting film is so light and non-sticky that it can be layered repeatedly. Choose from Blue Reflexion, a soft-to-intense blue; Copper Reflexion, a near-nude gleam; Jade Reflexion, a cool green shade; Night, a soft smoky hue to a deep black; and Day, a barely-there shimmer to a striking white iridescent white lid. Simply use the foam applicator to deposit the Eye Tint on the lid and gently spread with your fingers.
Tokyo Gardens’ Ecstasy Shine creates a pout that pops with tangy colours in Camelia, Freesia and Sakura. This is a feather-light formulation complete with liquid pigment pastes and a trio of emollient oils. It combines the intense colour of a lip cream, the hydrating properties of a balm and shine of a gloss.
Ecstasy Lacquer offers to ultra-high-gloss lip colour in nude shades of Acqua and Luce. You’ll notice a mirror-like sheen on your eyes.
