Armani’s Blushing Fabric Fits Like A Second Skin-------
A few years ago, I got into contouring. Nothing serious (full disclosure: my makeup knowledge far outweighs my makeup skills), just a newfound interest in creamy, neutral-toned pigments to carve out definition underneath my cheekbones and up to my temples. The trouble is, I’ve found that a lot of cream color bases are too heavy, while lighter powder formulations can be slightly difficult to wield (again, skill level = low). Giorgio Armani Beauty has come up with a pretty genius solution to my dilemma by issuing new shades of its divine Blushing Fabric. The cream-to-powder formula, which has a featherweight texture that blends to a translucent finish unlike anything else I’ve tried, is now available in Scarlotto, a deep rust, and Carmel, a warm beige. Both work extremely well to create dimension and can double as a ruddy flush when placed on the apples of the cheeks—or as an eye wash that closely resembles a naturally shadowed lid. And into my makeup bag they go.
