Faux Gloss!!

Giorgio Armani beauty and Linda Cantello, their international artistic director are like Vanilla Ice cream with chocolate. Without following trends this Italian Giant always concocts some of the most glamorous effortless looks.
This spring 2012, with ocean inspired looks on run, this look is one the most incredible and sought after looks of the season. I define it as a classic beauty and this looks truly spells 'effortless glamour'.

Giorgio Armani Prive Spring 2012

I used BH cosmetics Tropical Shimmer Palette, one of the newest additions to my stash to do this look. This palette is laden with 88 colors of mediterrannean magic infused all in one place.
Anyways the 'stars' symbolize the colors I have used with mentioned references.


For such luminous eyes always keep the entire complexion matte, slick on a shiny not shimmery lipgloss and keep mascara minimal for those soulful eyes. Its like makeup of the angels.
  • MAC Pro Longwear SPF10 foundation
  • Kryolan Supracolor foundation used as concealer
  • Kryolan Transparent Powder
  • Calvin Klein Blush in Foolish used for contouring
  • Shiseido The Makeup Lipgloss in G5 Chianti Rose
  • Nars Pro Prime Smudgeproof eyeshadow base
  • With fluffy dome brush, dust medium taupe grey in the crease to define the lids.
  • Stain the lash line with Bourjois Effet Smokey pencil in Ultra black smudging the color into lash line.
  • Apply brighter silvery grey with beige (sea shell beige) nuances on the entire lid.

  • I mixed two light sea foam color with green nuances on the left upper corner to create subtle highlights and applied shimmery yet soft sky blue in the inner corners to give that oceanic - oyester pearl kind of effect.
  • For a little more definition apply smokey silvery plum on the outer corners.
  • Blend the lid color on the lower lids as well keeping it soft and diffused.
  • Curl lashes and apply just one coat of MAC Opulash mascara for longer peepers.
  • Set brows with brow gel.

Such opalescent look gives an impression of clear lipgloss on eye lids and looks very chic. This type of makeup is very suitable for candle light dinners as the eyes look hypnotic in soft candle lights. 

Hope you like this look.

Till then,
