The world could always use more cool-toned taupe eyeshadows (that are permanent!), and here are five of my current favorites:
- Make Up For Ever S556 Taupe Gray — a shimmery taupe
- Dior Aventure — a gray-taupe with a frosted finish
- Giorgio Armani Shadow — a cool-toned, purple taupe
- ColourPop Meow — a frosted, purply taupe
- Inglot #434 — a rich, deep taupe with cool undertones
Giorgio Armani Runway Spring/Summer 2015
Inspired directly by the designs for the Giorgio Armani Spring/Summer 2015 show, Linda Cantello, International Make-Up Artist for Giorgio Armani, developed a backstage beauty look. The Armani Runway Lab has a unique tool specifically designed to aid Linda in creating make-up looks backstage. Now these custom shades are offered to the public for the first time, through a collection that replicates the make-up look of Giorgio Armani SS15 fashion show.
The Armani Runway make-up collection features a range of pigments and textures used by Linda Cantello to create customized beauty looks and new colors while backstage. The concept will launch at the same time as the Spring/Summer 2015 Giorgio Armani fashion collection, at a selection of exclusive points of sale. Now everyone can enjoy and experience the make-up look of a Giorgio Armani show.
Armani Runway Palette ($125.00) (Limited Edition)
The precious black case – a fashion accessory in itself – is adorned with a moiré beige pattern that suggests wind-blown ripples in sand, and contains the face and eye make-up. There is a translucent powder, soft to the touch, which creates an even, matte complexion and enhanced facial contours. This precious powder containing lustrous, fine mica-based pearl leaves a satiny finish embellished with elegant pink and gold accents. A second pearl pigment, rich in borosilicate, brightens the skin, creating the impression of a shimmering champagne hue. Nestled beneath the powder are a trio of eye shadows in delicate, luminous shades of taupe, pink/golden beige and silver. These fine-textured eye shadows enhance the eyes all day, or all night.
