Look In Effeto Nudo & Colère

Look In Effeto Nudo & Colère - 1

Hello everyone, today I have a look featuring several Giorgio Armani items. And because I don’t have their new Lip Maestro, I have chosen a neat substitute – the Guerlain Rouge G L’Extrait in M25 Colère.

I think this look is very sophisticated – clean, fresh and natural looking skin paired with neutral sultry eyes, finished off with a pop of red.

In this look, I tried to play with satin and matte textures with just a tiny amount of shimmer to brighten up certain features. The results? Very modern and I hope you like it. I would wear this look for any occasion, it’s effortless but at the same time polished.

Face
Natural looking skin with just a touch of radiance – as if glowing from within. To achieve that, I used Giorgio Armani Light Master Makeup Primer – this primer contains a Micro-fil pearl that changes colours when reflecting light and so, it boosts radiance and highlights the contours of the face.

Follow up with the usual foundation and concealing routine and set with powder.

Eyes
Featuring Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill 4 Color Eyeshadow Palette in 4 Effeto Nudo – I have all the 8 quads swatched here and here.

In this quad, you will find a palette for a set of neutral sultry eyes (depending on application and choice of colours). I have slightly winged the corners for a more “flirtatious” appearance. You can always play with the shape that suits you best – be it rounded or with an even more obvious wing.

Please refer to number chart below.

  • Apply (1) under brows and inner corners of eyes to highlight.
  • Apply (2) over entire lids, stop under crease.
  • Apply (3) over double eyelid area and blend upwards.
  • Tight line upper lash line with a black eyeliner.
  • Line upper lids with a black eyeliner and use (4) to softly smoke out edges and soften the line – line shouldn’t be too obvious.
  • Apply (3) along lower lash line.
  • Define outer lower lash line with (4) – this will make eyes look bigger.
  • Apply mascara and false eyelashes if needed.

Cheeks
Because I am going to use a bright red lip colour, I kept cheeks looking bare but I still want a touch of colour. Giorgio Armani Écailles Face & Cheeks Duo Palette is perfect for this and I have used the highlighter to lightly accentuate my cheek bones.

Lips
Hydrate lips with lip balm and apply a bright matte red lip colour.

Thank you for looking.

  1. Such a natural and elegant look…and I love it paired with a red lip!
    I really want this palette but I already have so many Burberry (nude) singles so am trying to reason with myself that I don’t need it… right?? :p

    • Hi Gwen,
      I would love to say you don’t need but the GA ones are very different from Burberry’s..
      In terms of texture and finish.. Have a look and swatch to see if you like them =)
