NEIMAN MARCUS ARMANI BEAUTY EVENT

Recently I had the pleasure of attending Naiman Marcus Armani Beauty event and got my make up done by Rhona Samuels, who is the National artist for Armani Beauty. Since I already use a lot of Armani products, I was eager to learn more about Armani beauty and preview the New Bronze Color 2012 collection. So, I'd like to take this opportunity to share some of the tricks and techniques I learned to achieve perfectly bronzed summer look. 

Face: Rhona started by applying Regenessence Multi Corrective Rejuvenating Cream all over my freshly cleansed face, which unlike other moisturizers did not feel heavy but rather made my skin look radiant and  velvety smooth. She then applied Luminous Silk Foundation in Golden Beige on my face and High Precision Retouch Concealer in Pale Peach under my eyes and alongside my nose. Now, you know how I feel about foundations in general, but I have to say I really like the Luminous Silk Foundation because it doesn't feel like a mask at all and creates a gorgeous luminous glow. Next, Rhona applied Sheer Bronzer in Golden Sand across my forehead, along cheekbones and temples, basically all the high points where the light hits your face naturally. Finally, she swept Sheer Blush in Sand over my cheekbones for a natural looking flush.

Eyes: I've been wanting to try navy smoky eye for a while now, so I asked Rhona to show me how I can achieve this look without looking like a raccoon. So, her advise is to apply color in layers and gradually build intensity to a desired effect. To achieve soft navy smoky eyes, Rhona applied Gray from Eye Palette 2 all over my upper lid, and Inky Navy, from the same palette on lash lines and on the outer corners of my eyes. Finally, Rhona lined my eyes with Smooth Silk Eye Pencil in Black to create my beloved cat eyes.  

Lips: to keep the look soft To balance bright eyes and to play up the bronzed skin look, Rhona applied Rouge d'Armani Sheer Lipstick in Dolce, a very pretty peachy shade. 


If you guys have any questions about the products or techniques Rhona used to create this look, please shoot me an email, I am always happy to answer:)




Keep on smiling, 
Love,
Annabelle
