Giorgio Armani Maestro Mediterranea Collection
Inspired by the intensity of Italian sun, Giorgio Armani Beauty unveils its interpretation of healthy glow makeup. Armani has dedicated all of its expertise in fabrics and face makeup to create a 100% natural sun-kissed look.
For Linda Cantello, Giorgio Armani International Makeup Artist, you need both bronzers and blush to create a beautiful and natural tanned look. Looking sun-kissed doesn’t just mean having a warm complexion; it also focuses on highlighting the color of the cheekbones. With Maestro Mediterranea, you can mix, blend or layer for a custom-made result.
Maestro Mediterranea builds on the revolution led by Maestro Fusion Makeup Complexion Perfector which launched in 2012. Maestro Color-Fil technology has reinterpreted the alchemy of Maestro Complexion Perfector and adapted it to blush and bronzer. Maestro Fusion Blush and Maestro Liquid Summer Bronzer benefit from the unique, lightweight texture that fuses naturally with the skin.
The secret of this iconic Maestro formula is no water or white powder. Instead, it contains five non-comedogenic oils, including white lotus oil, which gradually evaporate upon application and leave you with a “no makeup feel.” The ultra-fine oil-pigments suspension enhances the skin and is enriched with finely milled micro-pearls for liquid summer bronzer and essential concentrated pigments for fusion blush. For optimal results, use a single drop of the highly pigmented blush formula.
Maestro Fusion Blush ($52.00)
Maestro Liquid Summer Bronzer ($64.00) (Limited Edition)
Maestro Liquid Summer Bronzer premiers the universal, one-size-fits-all bronzing shade with golden micro pearl.
Availability: Nordstrom; April 2014 at Giorgio Armani Beauty counters and retailers

Giorgio Armani Beauty Cheek & Sun Fabric for Spring 2014
Inspired by Giorgio Armani’s refined choice of fabrics, Cheek & Sun Fabric compact powders premiere this Spring in a variety of sun-infused shades.
Giorgio Armani laboratories reveal “Color Essenza” technology: a unique formulation process dedicated to the most full and loyal expression of pure colors in ultra-fine, lightweight velvet textures.
The purest pigments are meticulously selected and milled separately for exceptional color purity. They are then combined with a transparent, non-whitening base to deliver exact shades. What you see, is what you get.
Cheek Fabric Blush comes in a small, irresistible, easy-to-carry case. The Sun Fabric Bronzer is draped in “sun pleats” with pearl effects reproducing sun light reflexion on the Mediterranean Sea. The double layered palette contains a half moon brush and a mirror for on the go retouches.
