Make Me Up: Runway to reality

Last September, at the Armani Privé Spring Summer 2015 runway show, Giorgio Armani sent out his models wearing metallic eyeshadow deftly applied in a light wash of colours from jade to gold. 

Though sometimes runway makeup are meant only for the runway, this new collection of Eye Tint fluid eyeshadow from Giorgio Armani boasts an easy application and blending formula that is faultproof even for those of us who don't have makeup artists on hand. It's also a long-wearing eyeshadow, perfect for desk to dinner days.

Don't think you can wear metallic in the office? Lightly apply a layer of Eye Tint for a shimmery yet sheer wash or use the darker shades to your line your eyes. Build up the layers to get a more vibrant and glamourous effect.

Get more application tips below or visit one of the experts at a David Jones Giorgio Armani counter:

  • For a wash of colour, apply Eye Tint on the eyelid with the applicator. Blend over the eyelid, using either your fingertips or a blending brush. 

  • Get a soft, smoky look by blending Eye Tint over the entire lid. Apply a deeper shade on the outer corners to create a soft smoky effect. Continue under the eyes and blend.

  • For a more intense effect, start by applying Eye Tint on the lid and underneath the eye, blending well with fingers tips or a blending brush. Using a deeper shade, create a V-shape in the outer corner of the eye and blend into the socket. Apply to the outer third of the lower lash line to intensify.
