The empty seats are just a distant memory. The second evening of Sanremo Festival 2021 back to crowding, and not just with colorful and smiling balloons sitting in the stalls.
The flapping of the wings of Fiorello (always in Achille Lauro style), under the supervision of his faithful «Pat», Amadeus, starts the second half of the kermesse, which, on the beauty side, gives considerable satisfaction. Starting from the sculptural chignon of a magnetic Elodie, this year in the role of co-host. Her hair perfectly pulled back and expertly “gelled” they discover the face, highlighted by a make-up declined in the shades of the dress and embraced by thick feather-effect eyebrows. All taken care of by the skilled hands of MrDanielMakeup in collaboration with Sephora.
From Elodie’s magnetism to the sparkle of Laura Pausini the step is short. Fresh from Golden Globe, the singer returns to the beloved Sanremo stage with a shiny smokey eyes pending with a sparkling cape and a brown hair warmed by caramel reflections. The barely hinted, almost wrinkled movement stores years of ultra-smooth and rigorous styling in the space of one performance. On the hair front, to be reported Gaia and his blunt bob. With clean, rigorous, defined lines is the cutting the cuts, so much so that even Francesca Michielin chooses it for the opening night of the Festival. If there are those who cut, on the other hand there are also those who opt for XXL lengths. After Elodie and her maxi tail, we find Achille Lauro, with a Rapunzel-style braid that steals the show.
On the make-up side, if on the first evening, the lips, declined in all their different shades, were the protagonists – as if to claim their role after a year of mask silence -, the second episode of the Festival focuses on sparkling power of make-up. The eyes light up with sparkles, shimmer effects, glitter. A riot of light that like a Red string binds the artists on stage. From the aforementioned Laura Pausini and Gaia to Malika Ayane, and The List Representative.
To break the idyll Marcella Bella, which, in a tear-jerking apparition with Fausto Leali and Gigliola Cinquetti, dominate the stage with a couple of vibrant ones fuchsia lips. And it is immediately Loredana Berté-mania.
And it is immediately (cursed) spring, indeed nostalgia (rogue).
