Giorgio Armani Beauty Spring 2008 Color Collection

Armani Gets Glowy for Spring

Just like MAC and Clinique, Armani is going with a naturally nude face for spring. (Are you picking up on a trend yet?) The new collection features Sasha Pivarova as the campaign face. Even though this picture has benefited from a little retouching, the flawlessness of her skin is pretty enviable.

It might be due to the new Luminous Silk Powder ($44), a fine pressed powder available in eight shades. Or you could chalk it up to Fluid Sheer Radiance ($35), a sheer fluid brightener available in apricot or pink washes. It can be used as a light blush or to sculpt—yep, sculpting has returned from the '80s, although the look is much softer and less obvious now.

What I like most about this collection is the accompanying tutorial that shows you, step-by-step, how to get this look. Will we all wind up looking like Sasha? Nah. But considering the radiance of this look, I'm willing to give it a whirl.

I really REALLY don't understand why designers chose Sasha to model for their campaigns!?! She looks good in this ad but when I first saw her on the runways I seriously thought she looked like Gollum from LOTR!!

They should atleast do a couple of spring looks, since not all women are pale sking & blonde. The make up style looked ridiculous on me.

She looks gorgeous. I love the lip color, but I don't think it would work on me. :(

i wouldnt really call that a nude face, i would call it smokey eye without the eyeliner. which, a someone who does makeup, i wouldnt recommend for the normal person. unless you have very striking eyes, the dark shadow under the eye w/o eyeliner, whill do one of a few things...1) make you look like someone punched you, 2) wash out your eyes, or 3) make you look very very tired...

thats not Gemma! Anyway I don't think that Gemma's that busy at the moment, D&G even photoshopped her head on Lily Donaldson's body in the new ads... its pretty obvious!

Yeah, I was about to say that it's Sasha Pivovarova... Gemma Ward has slightly softer features.

The model's actually Sasha Pivovarova, not Gemma Ward. They look amazingly alike, I know.
