Sydney Sweeney was the picture of elegance at this year’s Venice Film Festival. Renowned not only for its celebration of cinema, but for the stunning red carpet fashion and makeup looks that grace its prestigious events, the 2023 festival saw stars bring their beauty A-game.
One look that truly stole the spotlight was Sydney Sweeney's ethereal makeup at the One Night Only Giorgio Armani show. The actress, known for her roles in Euphoria and The White Lotus left everyone in awe with her mesmerising, sultry makeup look. Paired with her stunning off-the-shoulder black Armani gown, she was truly chanelling that Old Hollywood glamour.
The artist behind the look was none other than Sweeney’s go-to MUA Melissa Hernandez, who achieved the look using all Armani Beauty products. Here, we break down Sydney Sweeney’s Venice Film Festival makeup look with product highlights and alternatives…

To achieve the flawless canvas that Sydney showcased, her makeup artist started with a perfect complexion. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($105 at Adore Beauty), renowned for its ability to impart a natural luminosity to the skin, was the star of the show.
The focal point of Sydney Sweeney's makeup was undoubtedly her eyes. Her makeup artist opted for a soft, sultry look that drew attention without overpowering her delicate features. The eyes were adorned with a mix of earthy and shimmering shades from the Giorgio Armani Eye Tint Liquid Eyeshadows collection ($55 each at Myer). Touches of champagne and bronze hues created a captivating depth that added a touch of mystery to her gaze.
To enhance her already captivating eyes, her lashes were delicately coated with Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Mascara ($63 at Adore Beauty). We also love Rare Beauty’s Perfect Strokes Universal Volumising Mascara ($35 at Sephora) if you’re looking for something a little more affordable.
Sweeney’s blush was a testament to the theme of romance. A soft, rosy blush was applied to her cheeks to create a youthful, flushed effect.
Her glowy cheeks were the product of the Luminous Silk Glow Liquid Bronzer in ‘100’ (not available in Australia) and Luminous Silk Glow Blush in ‘51’ ($64 at Selfridges). For those balling on a budget, we recommend Bali Body’s Bronzing Serum ($29 at Bali Body) and L’Oreal Paris’ True Match Blush in ‘Rosy Cheeks’ ($26.99 at Chemist Warehouse).
The finishing touch on the softly enchanting look were the subtle nude lips. The Giorgio Armani Lip Power in ‘111’ ($66 at Adore Beauty), known for its velvety texture and long-lasting colour, was the perfect choice.
