Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - BEAUTY -

Lucky me! Ear­lier this year, I got to go to Gior­gio Ar­mani’s Wom­enswear Fall/Win­ter 2016 col­lec­tion in Mi­lan. It was ab­so­lutely mes­meris­ing. Be­fore the mod­els took to the run­way, I got to hang out back­stage with the liv­ing leg­end him­self, Mr Ar­mani. Never be­fore — and I have been hang­ing out back­stage at shows for over 20 years now — have I seen any de­signer so hands-on; he was even tweak­ing the mod­els’ hair him­self.

I also got to see Linda Can­tello in ac­tion — she’s the in­ter­na­tional make-up artist for Gior­gio Ar­mani — as she cre­ated a look to fit with the col­lec­tion.

Linda told me it was a “pretty, rock-star’s girl­friend look”. Linda ac­tu­ally cre­ated the colours there and then by mix­ing up a range of pig­ments and tex­tures at the ‘Lab Ar­mani Run­way,’ which is a mo­bile make-up sta­tion. It was just fas­ci­nat­ing

to watch, and now you can copy the Mi­lan Fash­ion Week beauty look in the form of a new make-up col­lec­tion, avail­able ex­clu­sively at Brown Thomas Dublin, Cork and Lim­er­ick, or see brown­ The star prod­uct is the Ar­mani Run­way FW16 Pal­ette, above, €120, which comes wrapped in a silk pouch, below left, the fab­ric of which was fea­tured on the run­way — FW stands for fall/win­ter, btw.

The pal­ette has two tiers; the top tier fea­tures the silky and lu­mi­nous univer­sal sheer pow­der, to mat­tify the com­plex­ion and high­light fa­cial fea­tures; while the bot­tom tier has a trio of eye­shad­ows.

The Ar­mani Run­way FW16 Eye Tint, €45, can be ap­plied be­neath the brow arch and in the in­ner cor­ner of the eye for a height­ened ef­fect, while the Ar­mani Run­way FW16 Rouge D’Ar­mani, €45, laven­der nude lip fin­ishes off the look.
