Who says runway beauty is unattainable?
The truth is—with the exception of a crop of avant-garde shows—most designers (working in conjunction with beauty brands) try to keep makeup looks feasible for the non-professional. It may look super high fashion, but with practice, you can achieve the same look at home too. Case in point: Giorgio Armani fall 2016 beauty.
"Obviously, this collection has to be wearable as I don't want to alienate the consumers," said makeup artist Linda Cantello. "This season, inspired by the beautiful floral fabrics, with a faded vintage feel, I created a pretty rock star's girlfriend look."
To look just as cool, watch this video and follow the steps below.
Step 1: Prep skin with Armani Prima Glow-On Moisturising Balm.
Step 2: Apply foundation and concealer in your skin tone to create your base.
Step 3: Lightly dust with translucent powder.
Step 4: Using the Armani Runway FW16 Palette (out August 2016), blend Greige Mauve and Skin Sheen (or a purple and shimmery nude) over the lids and onto the outer corners of the eye.
Step 5: Use black shadow to the lash line and smudge it out.
Step 6: Add an iridescent shade on the upper crease and to the inner corners of the eyes.
Step 7: Apply several coats of black mascara to the top and bottom lashes.
Step 8: Finish it off with a lavender nude lip.
