Is This the Single Most Flattering Foundation of All Time?
The struggle to find a full-coverage foundation that ticks all the boxes is REAL. The fact is, this specific category of base (as opposed to lighter products like BB and CC creams) is home to some formulas that have more in common with paving cement than a skin-perfecting fluid should. If you do happen across a full-coverage product that's lightweight, it'll probably be drying. Or hard to remove. Or—worst of all—look like cake batter, no matter how much you blend. So how is it that Giorgio Armani's cult Luminous Silk Foundation ($99) is able to offer incredible coverage, a silky feel, healthy glow, and a skin-like finish? I'm not totally sure. (Magic?) But I do know this—Luminous Silk is the one full-coverage foundation celebrities consistently cop to wearing.
From Cate Blanchett and Kim Kardashian West to Rihanna and Kerry Washington, it seems as if every A lister in Hollywood swears by it, no matter their skin tone or type. It's practically a makeup phenomenon. Evidence that Luminous Silk is the single most flattering luxury foundation of all time? Could be. (We sure think so.) While it's not cheap (it'll set you back a hundred clams), a little goes a long way. Plus, it's so glowy you can skip highlighter. If it's celeb fan club is anything to go by, it's worth the spend for a flawless complexion.
