This Genius Foundation Looks Like Your Skin – But Better

If you’re following us on Snapchat (you should be!) you will have seen Celina and I wandering around Selfridges trying on different foundations. Yes, the cold is finally setting in, and my faux fur is officially out of the cupboard, which means our skin needs a little something extra.

We walked around and tried everything. We tried foundations that were thick and heavy, light and watery, oily, powdery, we tried them all. And we started thinking about what sells us on foundation. Why do you buy? I usually buy based on recommendations, so it was difficult to put on an impartial hat and find one that truly suited our needs.

The Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. Of course, we’ve all heard about this foundation, which is why we hovered around the counter and eventually got skin matched. We just wanted to know, is it as good as they say it is?

Well firstly, it’s like a second skin. It’s sheer, natural and buildable and seems very kind to winter skin. It smells really nice and reminds us of a moisturizer. It reminds me of my Mum’s moisturizers, very light and fresh and homey. Lisa Eldridge and Kim Kardashian are fans, too. So you know it actually does what it says.

Basically, it’s the perfect transitional foundation. It’s light and luminous, kind to skin and buildable – so you can wear it wherever you’re going!

    I agree Luminous Silk foundation is perfection! On more mature skin (I’m in my 50’s) it doesn’t sit in lines and adds a stunning dewy finish. I’ve been using it for over 5 years now and still adore it.
