Gucci Debuts Makeup Line At Milan Fashion Week Spring 2015

Gucci Cosmetics on Show“For me, beauty and fashion are always connected,” says creative director Frida Giannini, “One doesn’t exist without the other. Eyes, skin, lips—they’re like accessories, all working together to create an unmistakable look”.

Giannini studied the house’s archives and came up with the Iconic Six: gold, black, red, ottanio, bronze and copper. As she developed the line over four years, she added contemporary hues from the brand’s fabric boards. And she worked closely with artistic director and legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath. The result: a line designed to move easily between a professional’s backstage kit and your everyday beauty bag.While you might not be able to get your hands on the products until next month, the runway look is a promising sneak peek. McGrath created the flawless base using Lustrous Glow Foundation, Luminous Perfecting Concealer and Luxe Finishing Powder. Eyes were shaded in with the Magnetic Color Shadow Quad in Tuscan Storm, while the lower lashline received Gucci’s signature glamour thanks to the Color Shadow Mono in Iconic Gold. She finished the makeup with Opulent Volume Mascara in Cocoa on the lashes and Luxurious Moisture-Rich Lipstick in Nude Satin on the lips. Bold High-Gloss Lacquer in Wild Amarena coated models’ nails. (Gucci Cosmetics will be available at Gucci New York Fifth Avenue in October 2014).
