Backstage Beauty Secrets: Giorgio Armani AW16


It’s the weekend. Thank god. Perhaps you have plans for this evening. Plans to drink too much, dance like a hooker and regret it all the next day. If that’s the case then you’ll need some dazzling make-up to wow the crowds. Take Giorgio Armani AW16 for example. A simple, but effective, look that can be achieved by all to wield a make-up brush, whether you’re a lipstick virgin or a contour queen. I can’t give you any specific tips to duplicate this look but I trust it. Look at the model. Look deep into her eyes. She knows when she hits the runway she will be the HBIC (Head Bitch in Charge children) – and that’s more than enough to sell it to me. It is very important you bide your time before parading this around though. You need that song. The song that announces “I’m here”. Heads turn, peasants part. “Look at the way her face catches the light” they gasp. “She’s a goddess!” they yell as they claw at their own drab faces. Finish them – flip your hair. Flip your goddamn hair. Somebody faints. You have won. Exit stage left.
