Giorgio Armani Beauty: "Fade to Grey" Fall 2014 Collection
"Fade to Grey" is the name of the collection and it's a harmony of delicate shades for a soft autumn makeup look.
The shades come in soft mineral tones with a very slight shimmer for a sheer, weightless effect.
Linda Cantello, Giorgio Armani International Makeup Artist says " I believe the best and the most flattering makeup is makeup that you cannot see. It's more striking when it has a slight ' lived-in' look. Eyes with muted color, an Armani look with stronger eyebrows, grey eyes and a soft mouth. It is all easy to apply and anyone can wear it."
Fade to Grey Eyeshadow Palette ($88) is a gorgeous color duo featuring a shimmery black paired with a delicate golden nude. The gliding cream texture is easy to apply and can be adjusted to customize the look. The result can be either discreet and muted or more intense, it's up to you.
Eyes to Kill Liners ($34) for this collection become deep and magnetic. Their raw shimmery shades offer buildable intensity. The grey mauve, pink gold, bronze and grey green can be worn in varying degrees of intensity. The colors can even be blended if you choose to do so to create your own color.
Cheek Fabric ($46) offers a hint of apricot to gently brighten your complexion. The very fine powder has a velvety texture that can be applied easily to give you a healthy glow.
Rouge d'Armani Sheers ($34) enhance your lips with precious shades. Both sheer and luminous, they feature a bitten look that is natural and also sophisticated. Their formula contains the Color Shine a Moisture Polymet which is an ingredient that can hold twice it's volume in water to offer your lips 8 hours of moisture. Available in three shades: Chestnut, Dusty Pink and Berry Red.
Nail Lacquer ($20) is being offered in four shades as to adorn your nails with rare, subtle iridescent shades that change with the light. Brown, plum, grey and bronze go on as a liquid gel in a single step and one layer becomes solid and dries quickly.
Overall the " Fade to Grey" collection is soft yet rich. Everything I swatched felt luxurious and lightweight. I loved this collection as it offers subtle and elusive beauty.
