If from now on, your weekends will pretty much be delegated to the throng of summer weddings you've been invited to, you are not alone. Let this be the season you kick your guest aesthetic up a notch. Sara Sampaio's summery makeup at the Giorgio Armani PRIVE show is the perfect muse.
July 2 marked the designer's show at Paris Haute Couture Week and sitting in the front row was, of course, Armani Beauty ambassador Sampaio alongside fellow models Kitty Spencer and Alice Dellal.
The runway collection sparkled with crystals and metallics, but the it-girl onlooker outshone them all with her natural-looking glow. Sporting a bright-red sunhat with matching bauble earrings, a red-and-white blouse, and black trousers, Sampaio was the epitome of summertime in Paris.
Her beauty routine yielded the natural, lightweight look every girl covets. Glowy skin, cherry-colored lips, and a pop of neutral eyeshadow did the trick. Lucky for you, her makeup artist for the evening, Catherine Dargenton, is dishing up the secrets to recreating Sampaio's look exclusively for The Zoe Report and you'll be surprised to find just how easy it is to look like one of those makeup-free French girls.
Now, time for a beauty shakeup before the summer wedding circuit officially begins.
To prep the model's skin, Dargenton says she started with Giorgio Armani Prima's Glow-On Moisturizing Face Balm — a cream designed to hydrate, plump, and leave you with a long-lasting luminous finish — and the Maestro UV Skin Defense Primer because you certainly wouldn't want to leave the house without sunscreen.
"We wanted something flush and monotone on the lips, cheeks, and eyes," she says, so after applying the Luminous Silk Foundation using a blender brush, Dargenton teamed the classic A-Line Blush up with Fluid Sheer — Armani's cult classic illuminator — for Sampaio's glowy cheeks.
Dargenton lined the model's eyes with eyeliner and used a liquid metallic eye tint in two rosy pink shades to create a summery lid. Lastly, Armani's liquid Lip Maestro Freeze in a candy-pink hue gave Sampaio her colorful pout with a velvety matte finish.
Thanks to this simple routine, the model achieved that highly sought-after I-woke-up-like-this no-makeup look and you can, too, with the exact products she used, ahead.
