Graphic shapes burnished with curves and softly-broken lines were predominant looks from makeup artist Linda Cantello and hairstylist Franco Gobbi at the spring 2013 Giorgio Armani collection.
Using Giorgio Armani Cosmetics, makeup artist Linda Cantello referenced the strong grays of the spring 2013 Giorgio Armani collection by sweeping the graphic colors from the Maestro Eyes to Kill Eyeshadow Quad across eyelids.
A field of turquoise blue from the forthcoming Eyes to Kill Collection was applied on the lids and eyeliner in silvery-blue was traced along the upper eyelash. A thin, black line was drawn close to the lash and false lashes were set.
“It’s very interesting because when you use graphic shapes, you don’t really do an eyelash, so it’s a bit of a mash up, which I love,” Cantello said.
Complexions were smoothed with Maestro Fusion Makeup SPF15 and eyebrows were filled-in without an arch. Lips were coated in transparent, matte Color Zero from the Lip Maestro line.
Hairstylist Franco Gobbi created an asymmetrical, graphic cut that was short on one side and long on the other, inspired by a mix of the Sixties and Nineties.
A ridge wave was pushed in the front of the face to cover one eye, created by a severe, low parting. With Moroccanoil products, hair was spilt into two sections. The crown was sectioned out and hair was pulled to one side, packed back to make a “small head profile,” covered with the top hair and the crown hair to make the graphic wave.
Luminous Hairspray Strong was used to tame flyaway hairs on the nape of the neck and to coax them into shape.
