Just like MAC and Clinique, Armani is going with a naturally nude face for spring. (Are you picking up on a trend yet?) The new collection features Sasha Pivarova as the campaign face. Even though this picture has benefited from a little retouching, the flawlessness of her skin is pretty enviable.


It might be due to the new Luminous Silk Powder ($44), a fine pressed powder available in eight shades. Or you could chalk it up to Fluid Sheer Radiance ($35), a sheer fluid brightener available in apricot or pink washes. It can be used as a light blush or to sculpt—yep, sculpting has returned from the '80s, although the look is much softer and less obvious now.

What I like most about this collection is the accompanying tutorial that shows you, step-by-step, how to get this look. Will we all wind up looking like Sasha? Nah. But considering the radiance of this look, I'm willing to give it a whirl.
