On the notes of Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Conformist, in that world of beauty represented by Chinese lacquer and shrouded in the timeless perfection of craftsmanship, Giorgio Armani has taken the aesthetic of Art Deco as his inspiration and declared it in a collection with a lacquered effect.

Linda Cantello interprets Armani Privé Spring Summer 2019 in make-up:

“To complement a retro-inspired collection, graphic strokes of red, applied just under the eye in a painterly fashion, give a nod to the illustrations of Erté and accent the beaded cloche hats.”




Prepare and massage skin with ARMANI PRIMA GLOW-ON MOISTURISING BALM, ensuring the cream is absorbed before adding the foundation. Then use HIGH PRECISION RETOUCH if needed. Apply POWER FABRIC foundation to create a pale porcelain skin. Using NEO NUDE A-COUNTOUR in shade #20, contour the cheekbones to sculpt and define the face.



Curl eyelashes and apply EYES TO KILL mascara in #1 (black) on top lashes only.

Use SMOOTH SILK LIP PENCIL* in #8 (red) to draw a broken, straight line under the eyes. The line should not be extended nor curved.



Apply ECSTASY SHINE in #400.


Powder at the end with NEO NUDE FUSION POWDER in appropriate shade.

Use NAIL LACQUER in shade #400 for nails.
