Prepare the skin with ARMANI PRIMA Glow-On Moisturizing Balm ($128). Apply CREMA NUDA ($243) in shade matching the natural skin color and add HIGH PRECISION RETOUCH ($56) when needed. Finish with light beige LUMINOUS SILK COMPACT ($118) powder (shade 2).
Use EYE & BROW MAESTRO ($49) in “sand blond” (shade 12) to contour the temples. Apply brown SMOOTH SILK EYE PENCIL ($44, shade 12) under the cheekbones. Blend smoothly down the color with a hint of HIGH PRECISION RETOUCH and CREMEA NUDA. If needed, to give depth to the bottom lip, use EYE & BROW MAESTRO in "sand blond" (shade 12) under the lower lip.
Apply black SMOOTH SILK EYE PENCIL (shade 4) on the outer corner of the eye, the “classic couture” way. Define and smudge close to the upper lash line and fill in the shape with the black matte eyeshadow of the upcoming Armani NIGHT LIGHT Collection palette ($118, on counter in 20 November 2016, DJs & Myer, selected doors only). Smudge the bottom lash line to achieve a soft smokey effect. Use the white matte eyeshadow from the same NIGHT LIGHT palette in the center of the lid and blend. Finish with the NEW extravolume mascara ECCENTRICO ($57, on counter 4 September 2016, DJs, Myer, Sephora) in “obsidian black” on top lashes.
The start of the brows is emphasized, softly smudged, creating a shadow effect with the taupe matte eyeshadow of the NIGHT LIGHT palette. Apply then HIGH PRECISION BROW PENCIL ($44) in "copal" (shade 3) to fill in gently with small strokes to the outer third of the brows for a straight, thicker, square but yet natural result.

Whether you have a high roller budget, or a shoe string discretionary spend would you ever purchase a fragrance you just don’t like…and then wear it? A fragrance is your sensory signature, it’s your lasting sensory impression you leave with the one you encounter. A woman or man’s relationship with their fragrance is an intimate bond.
