Gabrielle Union stunned at the 2021 Billboard Music Awards. With her covered in sequins Prada gown to her flawless makeup look by celebrity makeup artist, Fiona Stiles, she was simple, glamorous and exactly what we needed to get us excited about getting out in world again.

“Seeing Gabrielle’s dress made me want to create a soft, slightly retro makeup look for the event. Nothing beats Giorgio Armani Beauty complexion products for creating the perfect canvas. You can create perfect looking skin with minimal effort and achieve maximum results.” – Fiona Stiles

Fiona prepped Gabrielle’s skin using the DERMAFLASH LUXE device to exfoliate the skin to get rid of peach fuzz and dead skin cells. Using DERMAFLASH LUXE before makeup application is Fiona’s secret weapon for flawless, radiant skin. Fiona then primed Gabrielle’s face using the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Hydrating Primer to add a layer of moisture to the skin. Next, she applied Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 9 in the center of the face and Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 11 on the perimeter to create natural, flawless definition and build a soft, luminous glow. Next, Fiona added a touch of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Concealer in 8.5 to add brightness to the center of the face. Along the tops of the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose, Fiona patted on Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer Glow Enhancer in 10 as a highlight.  Fiona then used a light dusting of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Glow Powder in 11.5 along the perimeter of her face and Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Glow Powder in 9 along the cheekbones and center of the face.

EYES:  For the eyes, Fiona used Giorgio Armani Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadow in 10, 23 and 27. First she washed the entire lid with shade 23, and then used shade 10 in the crease, extending it outwards to draw out the eye and create a soft wing. To add a touch of highlight to the eye, Fiona added shade 27 on the center of the lid. Next, Fiona used Giorgio Armani Smooth Silk Eye Pencil in 12 to extend the eye shape along with Giorgio Armani Smooth Silk Eye Pencil in 4 at the lashes to make them look extra thick and defined. Fiona finished off the eyes by applying a few coats of the Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara to both the bottom and top lashes.

LIPS: Fiona gave Gabrielle a neutral lip by applying the NEW Giorgio Armani Lip Power in 100 and 106 (launching in June 2021), using shade 100 in the middle of the lip to create dimension.
