Looking Like Fall: Recreating Armani's Fall Beauty Campaign Look

Fall is upon us, and nothing signals its arrival more than the welcome sight of smokier eyes. The Glitter Geek Arianne and I decided it would be fun to celebrate its arrival by recreating a fall beauty look. She took inspiration from the runways, while I have been enamored by Armani's fall beauty campaign ever since I saw it two months ago.

It was an easy choice, though complete recreation was somewhat hindered by the lack of a comparable hat.

Giorgio Armani Beauty Fall Campaign 2012

Products Used:
· Face: Le Métier de Beauté Peau Vierge Tinted Treatment #2 mixed with Burberry Fresh Glow Luminous Fluid Base, RMS Beauty "Un" Cover-Up #22
· Eyes: Le Métier de Beauté Nouvelle Vague* (black shade)
· Cheeks: Le Métier de Beauté Creme Fresh Tint in Tenne
· Lips: Burberry Nude Peach Lipstick

There really isn't much to the look – I just wanted a chance to tackle an exaggerated black smokey eye. I colored my lids with black eyeshadow and shaped them into oversized cat eyes, blending out the edges. The model's cheeks had just a hint of color, which I emulated with a few pats of Tenne. Burberry Nude Peach Lipstick might not be pink enough compared to what the model had on, but remains a good companion to over-smoked eyes.

Arianne is doing Derek Lam's Fall 2012 runway makeup and I can't wait to see what she's conjured up. Mosy on over here to take a look!

  3. whoa! panda eyes!love the lips but i think you went too far up with the eyeshadow. maybe lowering it closer to the lids would be more flattering?
