Armani: Introducing the sepia collection
Giorgio Armani's new makeup range has landed and we couldn't be more in love.
The Sepia Collection (above) is made up of a classic, neutral colour palette that brings warmth to every skin tone with ease. With summer just around the corner - and dewy skin more lust-worthy than ever - we spoke to the experts at Armani who gave us an exclusive step-by-step tutorial on how to get the sepia summer glow...
• Maestro UV Primer (£40)
• Maestro Glow Foundation (£40)
• Face Brush (£85)
• Maestro Liquid Summer Bronzer (£40)
• Fluid Sheer (£36.50)
• Sepia Palette (£60)
• High Precision Brow Pencil (£25)
• Sepia Lip Colour (£27)
Apply a few drops of Maestro UV Primer all over the face. The ultra-light and transparent texture is perfect to hold in moisture to kick start your Sepia glow. Essential for the summer season ahead, the added SPF 50 helps to protect skin from UVA/UVB rays.
For the ultimate fresh, natural-looking radiance, apply Maestro Glow Foundation. Place a small amount in the palm of your hand, and buff on to skin in circular motions using the Giorgio Armani Face Brush.
Maestro Liquid Summer Bronzer creates a sun-kissed complexion, bursting with freshness. Use a brush to apply across the face in circular motions where the sun would naturally hit - to build intensity, buff under cheek bones, on the top of forehead, on the nose and along the jawbone to contour.
For the perfect summer strobe, blend Fluid Sheer across the tops of cheekbones, cupid's bow and temples for an instant glow. You'll create an illuminating veil of radiance in a few sweeps!
The new Sepia Palette envelopes the skin in a veil of subtle light and smooths out imperfections. Pat all over using the expertly designed applicator brush, to lock in your Sepia glow and ensure it lasts all day.
The look wouldn’t be complete without a strong summer brow. Blend a lighter shade of High Precision Brow Pencil on the top of your brow, and a darker shade under the brow to strengthen and define the arch.
For a touch of glamour, use Rouge D’Armani 200; a warm tone to perfectly compliment your sun-kissed look. Renowned for its moisturising properties, Rouge D’Armani is nourishing and comfortable to wear all day long.
