I’ve said it once and I will say it a million times! I am SO THRILLED to have been made into an Armani It Girl by the legendary Tim Quinn. The Talented Mr. Quinn needs no introduction other than being one of the greatest artists to have ever picked up a makeup brush. He is a titan of the beauty industry and has greenlit the selection of many an Armani Girl including Megan Fox, Rihanna, Hilary Swank, Camilla Belle and once again Yours Truly. Tim Quinn is in a class of his own and I pinch myself each time I get the chance to mug for Tim and Giorgio Armani Beauty as it is a beautiful privilege. The makeup is the epitome of luxury and fresh elegant beauty. I love how I look in Giorgio Armani Beauty products and have trusted many a red carpet-approved look to their amazing cosmetics. I made my return to the SAKS Fifth Avenue NYC Flagship Store to muse once again for Tim Quinn in the brand new #BORNBACKSTAGE Runway makeup collection from Giorgio Armani Beauty that was straight off the Armani Milan Fashion Week catwalk!
The Giorgio Armani Beauty #BORNBACKSTAGE Runway Collection is a truly special one. The palette alone is cause for exclaim. Swathed in sumptuous champagne-colored Armani silk fabric, the packaging features pieces of the actual Armani runway garments worn by the models in the Armani Milan Fashion Week runway show. There is a gorgeous illuminating finishing powder which offers a flawless candlelit look without being greasy or shiny, and a palette of metallic browns and grey for the classically soft Armani smoky look. Again, the keyword about this collection (and this line in general) that makes it so decadent is the softness, in the colors and in the silky smooth textures. Even with a dramatic dark-eyed look like this, I never looked like I had the dreaded “Raccoon Eyes” nor did I look as though I had applied my makeup with a trowel. The look was build-able yet deliciously blend-able and gorgeously wear-able. The powder alone is probably one of the finest I have ever owned, and it all comes neatly packed in an oval mirrored compact and a Giorgio Armani logo clasp.
Tim created the following look at SAKS exclusively for my face and this time it was all about my dark wide eyes. Framing my warm brown peepers and keeping the lip neutral while highlighting my naturally sharp bone structure, I was instantly transformed. I was born again. Re-born an Armani It Girl, but this time a bit sexier and edgier. I was #BORNBACKSTAGE.
