“The Dia Diaries” Product Review: The Armani Glow

Honey, Mocha and Caramel, despite sounding like scrumptious frothy delights from Starbucks, they’re actually the most sought after complexions of the summer! The good news is that you can “cheat the heat” this season by opting for luxurious beauty bronzers from Giorgio Armani Beauty that not only provides a golden glow but protection from harsh rays.

The Dia Diaries had the pleasure of sitting down with Celebrity Face Designer and National Director of Creative Artistry, Tim Quinn to discuss the products used to achieve the iconic “Armani Glow”.

Having worked with celebrities such as Glenn Close, Debra Messing, Kerry Washington, Kim Cattrall, Tara Reid, Gwen Stefani, Jordana Brewster and Kate Bosworth, Quinn has mastered the art of enhancing complexions and facial structures with the use of exquisite products.

To achieve glowing skin, you have to first start with basics…skincare! As youth we were hounded by overprotective mothers that stressed the importance wearing sunscreen. Luminessence CC Cream is a color control bright moisturizer with SPF 35 that feels like silk caressing your fingertips. It features a triple technology on skincare for its energizing and antioxidant complex, color for its pinky “rose glow” pigments and light for its liquid mirror technology that your skin instantly drinks up. “You can literally apply this on the weekends with no makeup and still have a hint of color added to your skin.” says Quinn.


One of the most popular products in the cosmetic line is the award winning, Luminous Silk foundation, which features an exclusive Micro-fil technology. “This product is great because it provides a great finish that so flawless that you appear airbrushed.” proclaims Quinn. Without a doubt, it’s so weightless that it redefines foundation. Its hydrating fluid glides on seamlessly with a silky texture and all-day, buildable coverage.


If becoming a bronze goddess is your goal this summer, opt for the Fluid Sheer highlighter! This radiant liquid provides amazing color and brightens and applies weightlessly on the skin. This product is one of my favorites from the beauty line because you can wear it alone or mixed with foundation for a boost of radiance and color.


Don’t be dismayed, if liquid application seems a bit advanced for your skill set, use a Bonze All-Over Palette. Quinn says “To get that gorgeous glow that all women crave, I recommend using bronzer to frame your face in the shape of a three. Using a blush brush, start by applying bronzer at your temple and then sweep along the hairline to slightly under the cheekbone and finish along the jaw bone. This will add subtle contour to the face and give a pop of luminous glow.”
