GIORGIO ARMANI PRIVÉ by LINDA CANTELLO

It is the collections that tell the story of Giorgio Armani’s journey, his sense of freedom, his independence from fleeting trends. And in this Privé collection, presented for the first time at Palazzo Orsini, the heart of his Milanese atelier where clothes are conceived and take shape, one can detect a desire for perfection and a pleasure taken in light and colour; the result conveys the profound aesthetics of haute couture to the younger generation.

Linda Cantello interprets Giorgio Armani Privé Spring-Summer 2020 in make-up:

“The makeup was a combination of the Armani DNA in soft hues to enhance the femininity of the collection and was inspired by the beauty and history of Palazzo Orsini.”

STEB-BY-STEP:

FACE

Prepare and massage skin with ARMANI PRIMA GLOW-ON MOISTURISING CREAM, ensuring the cream is absorbed before adding the base.

Use LUMINOUS SILK CONCEALER where needed in the appropriate shade to match the skin tone. Then apply LUMINOUS SILK FOUNDATION to create a natural seamless complexion.

EYES

Apply EYE TINT in #43, “ICE” on the eyelids, up to the eyebrows (apply softly yet for a visible result). Then use SMOOTH SILK EYE PENCIL in black on the base of the lashes and smudge it down and out to create a shadow.

LIPS

Apply ROUGE D’ARMANI MATTE in shade #101, “Scene” on the lips and dab some NEO NUDE ECSTASY BALM on top, using shade #1, to give the lips a healthy sheen finish.

Powder at the end with LUMINOUS SILK GLOW FUSION POWDER in the appropriate shade.

How to identify a good perfume?

Finding the right perfume is nothing but trial and error, the more you smell and understand the notes that you’re smelling, the more closer you are to finding your scent soulmate. To help you on your way, here are five tips for your olfactory journey from Parfums de Marly.

1. Only two scents at a time

If you are shopping scents for the first time, with the intention of finding the perfect scent, try a variety of fragrances until you find the note that resonates with you. However, limit it to trying only two at a time. Let each fragrance make its own space in your olfactory world to help you better understand what you love the most.

2. Spray and Waft

Trying out scents should not be a rushed experience. To ensure you find the perfect scent, patience is a virtue. It is important that you don’t just spray and sniff the scent and make an immediate decision about you liking it or not. Spritz the scent and waft it towards your nostrils to get a better feel for the fragrance and let the aroma come to you in the best way possible.

3. Don’t rub, let it settle

Always spritz the scent on those spots of your skin where there’s no other fragrance. Once done, as tempting as it would be to rub the scent, don’t! Let it dry down. When you rub the scent, unintentionally you rub off the top notes which could make the scent smell entirely different from the original fragrance. At least 10-15 mins to smell the perfect blend of all the notes.

4. Not one works for all

When it comes to finding your signature perfume, it is not necessary to have just one scent. You can have multiple signature scents for different occasions and even seasons. Before you decide on a signature scent, it is important that you deduce what you want it to say about you or which personality trait you want it to represent. Do you want a fragrance that makes heads turn or something that is more intimate? Based on the occasion and what you feel, your signature scent will differ so don’t be afraid to explore.

 5. Hair to save the day

When you have a scent you’re madly in love with, it is a good idea to occasionally spray the perfume in your hair as it moves around with the air which helps in making sure the scent lasts for a long time.
