By Ruth Funnell – GIORGIO ARMANI Make-up Artist Event

I was lucky enough to be able to attend the Giorgio Armani Beauty Drinks Reception event last night and see their beautiful range.
Their spring/summer palettes were bang on trend with blues and greys and beautiful sheer lip colours.
There is a particularly lovely navy colour which is very wearable and is on the right side of the blue spectrum to look ‘new ‘ and not too retro as sometimes blue eyeshadow can be! 
They make a great change from greys and blacks and look fresh, lighter and somehow ‘right ‘ for now. 
These colours finished with a few coats of their best selling hero product, Eyes to Kill Mascara is about all you need to complete a new spring/summer eye.
As seems to be the trademark of Armani cosmetics, the beautiful textures of their Luminous Silk Foundations seem to ‘glide’ on the skin and feel extremely soft and luxurious and so very wearable with one of the largest collections of bases in every conceivable skin match -there are 15 to choose from to get that accurate skin colour match for every season.
I really rate their Fluid Sheer highlighter which is so fine and doesn’t leave any hint of ‘sparkle’ on the skin [as some brands can] -just a dewy glow which can be used alone or mixed with a base.
One other gorgeous product I need to mention  is the little Blushing Fabric Tubes in 3 colours that seem to seamlessly melt into the skin leaving a sheer blush and feel like velvet-again perfect for summer and is a firm makeup bag favourite with me now !
