Beauty: Giorgio Armani Eye Tint


I have been a fan of Giorgio Armani makeup for some time now, and use Luminous Silk as my ‘evening’ foundation.  It doesn’t come cheap but it’s a makeup splurge I make perhaps twice a year that’s well worth the indulgence as I love the quality and finish on my skin.

Giorgio Armani Eye Tint is a new addition to the Giorgio Armani beauty line. Born backstage and used on the models for Armani’s SS 2015 runway show, Eye Tint is now available in Brown Thomas Dublin and Cork (€32 each).

I caught up with Armani’s international face designer Thoa Tran last week to find out more about this genius little product.  The twelve easy-to-wear Eye Tint shades are eye shadows applied in a fluid but which look like a shadow. I discovered that they are much more than an eye shadow- in fact, here are ten ways to wear Armani Eye Tints:

Ten ways to wear Armani Eye Tints

1.    Copper colour washes were applied to model eyelids everywhere from Balmain and Julien MacDonald at the SS/2015 shows for a fresh, modern and summery take on the smoky eye. Get the look with Armani Eye Tints in Cold Copper, Senso and Gold Ashes.

2.    Unsure which Armani Eye Tint to invest in? The sultry slate Obsidian, navy Minute and taupe Shadow suit each and every eye colour, and can be worn as liners, shadow washes or for more intense smoky looks.

3.    Sweep Armani Eye Tints in Shadow, Flannel or Rose Ashes over matte eye shadows to transform them to high shine.

4.    Widen eyes by keeping darker pigments closer to the lash line – Try this trick with Armani Eye Tints in Obsidian or Minuit.

5.    Blue hues dressed eyes at Emporio Armani, Fendi, Holly Fulton and Emanuel Ungaro this season to name but a few.  Make the shade work away from the catwalk by using a fine brush to apply Armani Eye Tint in Jade as an eyeliner flick.

6.    Play makeup mixologist by mixing a dash of Armani Eye Tint in Gold Ashes into your facial moisturizer or lip balm to lend a dewy glow.

7.    The supremely blend-able Armani Eye Tints can be applied any which way: Use a fingertip to achieve a soft-focus colour-wash, the versatile applicator sponge for an intense pigment hit, or a fine brush to master a delicate eyeliner look.

8.    Applying any of the darker Armani Eye Tint contouring shades to the outer corner of the lid and blending them up and outwards will achieve a winged effect that lifts the eye.

9.    We love wet look eyelids atop a bare, natural beauty look  – Armani Eye Tints in Flannel and Rose Ashes achieve exactly this.

10.    Use a soft brush to apply Armani Eye Tints in Cold Copper or Gold Ashes as a highlighter. Sweep pigment down the nose, across the cheekbones, onto cupids bow and even décolleté, arms and legs for a subtle, summer sheen.
