Having 1970s style icons like Diana Ross, Bianca Jagger and Donna Summer, I always felt like I grew up in the wrong decade. The fashion-forward women of the disco decade embodied a natural sophistication that I still try to channel today. Sorry (not sorry) '90s.
Lucky for me, I can now recreate that seventies-tastic look with the new Giorgio Armani Beauty Eye Tint.
What Is It?
Armani's newest eye makeup combines the Italian designer's signature use of delicate and iridescent fabrics and colors into a luxurious liquid shadow. Eye Tint comes in 12 stunning metallic shades, including Obsidian (a stormy blue-black), Jade (a lustrous blue-green) and Senso (a creamy chocolate) that glide onto lids just as soft as we imagine Diana Ross' plush boas to feel.
"Orange Is the New Black" actress Uzo Aduba and "Girls" star Allison Williams wore smoldering eyeshadow to the 2015 Golden Globe Awards using multiple Armani Eye Tints. The layered effect added edge to their old Hollywood makeup without making the actresses look like Ziggy Stardust.
How I Wore It
I recently tried out the Gold Copper Eye Tint while celebrating my best friend's birthday. With lots of food, cocktails and dancing on the agenda, I knew that evening would be a true testament of this product's staying power.
When wearing eyeshadow, I usually prep my lids with a primer to prevent creasing and make the color pop even more. But after doing a swatch test of Eye Tint on the back of my hand, I decided to skip this step.
The gleaming gold pigment went on smoothly with just one swipe thanks to the fine brush applicator. I also loved how it dried down to a creamy matte finish, reflecting much-needed light for selfies. And when I say that this makeup didn't budge one bit during an intense dance-off, I absolutely mean it.
