What’s hot during Red Carpet Season? The chance to catch up to some of my favorite people especially Armani Beauty’s Tim Quinn. He’s not new on the blog but he’s talking about Golden Globes beauty and on that 1/12, Saturday, he had just done Erica Christensen’s makeup for the People’s Choice!

Since there were so many events for Golden Globes weekend, here’s the list for who was wearing Armani Beauty products:
Critic’s Choice: Jennifer Lawrence and Emily Blunt
People’s Choice: Lea Michele, Jennifer Lawrence and Naomi Watts
Golden Globes : Lea Michele, Selma Hayek, and Rachel Weisz.


Tim Quinn and I had a chance to talk not only about Golden Globes nd Red Carpet beauty but also about Spring 2013.. which was created by internationally known makeup artist, Linda Cantello (who I interviewed many many years ago when she had her own line)


“This Spring I love the mix of vivid shades with nudes, women are traditionally drawn to color but afraid of it – this way they can play and customize to their own desires. At the Giorgio Armani S/S 13 show – I used the soft grey tone to create a muted graphic shape – then a thick liner was drawn with the Swimming Pool Turquoise blue, and then blended with the taupe – this gives a soft pop of glamorous, sensual color. Any woman can wear it.”

Linda Cantello, International Makeup Artist for Giorgio Armani Cosmetics

Color FilTM Satin Technology

Giorgio Armani creates high-drama color in longwearing, luminous eye shadows. Unlike traditional frosted shadows that can flake and fade, Color-FilTM Satin technology binds powders with a silicon-like gum. Color lasts all day and never smudges. Spherical polymers and treated pearls within the formula assure comfort and radiance. Powder glides onto the skin like stretch fabric. The result is a bolder, brighter satin for incredibly amplified color.

ROUGE D’ARMANI SHEERS—two limited-edition shades, $32

Beige 100

This season, lips are luminous, sheer and naturally enticing with two essential, limited-edition shades of Rouge d’Armani Sheers: Beige Rose 101 and Beige 100.

Rouge d’Armani Sheers provide everything a woman desires in a lip color: the rich tones of a lipstick, the translucence of a gloss and the comfort of a lip balm. The light and creamy formula features a Shine Moisture Polymer that locks in moisture on the surface of the lips for over 8 hours, while the translucent base keeps colors true. Lips are soft, hydrated and drenched in pure color.

A modern, sophisticated lipstick presented in a sleek, black-lacquered metal case.

—three new shades, $49
Face Fabric stretches to “fit” the contours of your face for a seamless, semi-matte finish. Organic colorants, blended with translucent pigments create subtle, nude tones. Three new shades have been added to the Face Fabric range: Pale porcelain .5 and two medium nudes 3.5 and 4.5.

—two limited-edition shades, $39
The “second skin” blush comes in two vibrant, limited-edition shades, only for spring:
High Density Orange #8 and Fuchsia #9. These shades create a pop of color that transform into a soft flush on contact with the skin to give a radiant glow.

Blushing Fabric is a new generation of makeup. A cosmetic textile created by Giorgio Armani to dress skin in sheer, fresh color. Formulated with Micro-fil™ 3D technology, its ultra-sensorial texture seems to melt on contact with skin for a soft, velvety feel.
