Armani who art in Heaven

The legendary Linda Cantello, the first ever British makeup artist and creator of the original smoky eye, was on hand to launch the new Giorgio Armani counter which takes prime position in the impressive Beauty Hall at Brown Thomas Dublin.

London born Cantello, a true professional in make-up with endless talent and colour-expertise, has brought her knowledge and capacity for innovation to Giorgio Armani Cosmetics, one of the most luxurious designer make-up brands in the world today. This original catwalk queen inspired, trained and nurtured the top make-up artists of today and continues to work tirelessly at her craft.

A great admirer of Mr. Armani, Linda Cantello believes that Giorgio Armani is a true fashion icon, always faithful to his aesthetic, never deviating from his strong, forever modern image. Since joining the Armani team she has collaborated very closely with the man himself through his fashion shows and new product launches - most recently Eyes to Kill mascara and Eyes to Kill eye shadow palettes, as well as the very successful Rouge d'Armani lipstick franchise.
