Turns out, Meghan Markle and Kim Kardashian (aka the two women with the most envy-inducing complexions on the planet) both use the same foundation. So naturally, we’re planning on purchasing it in BULK.
The foundation favoured by two of our ultimate beauty icons? Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($99, sephora.com.au). The liquid foundation is lightweight, buildable and leaves skin with a natural, radiant and dewy finish (which happens to be one of the biggest makeup trends of the moment).
While you’d assume Kim Kardashian would use her own KKW Beauty foundation, the brand doesn’t have one at this stage, so she has to look elsewhere for a trusty foundation. Recently, Kim filmed a makeup tutorial on her app with celebrity makeup artist, Patrick Ta, where he used the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. Patrick applied the foundation to her whole face (including her eyelids and neck) with a damp Beautyblender to keep her complexion uniform. Not only do we trust Kim’s recommendations (her makeup is always flawless) but we trust anything and everything that Patrick does. He is regularly the man behind the incredible red carpet makeup looks you see on Shay Mitchell, Olivia Munn, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Chrissy Teigen and Jenna Dewan – need we say more?
If you’re still not convinced, cast your mind back to a little wedding that took place earlier this year. Remember when Meghan Markle married Prince Harry and had that fresh and dewy wedding makeup that allowed her signature freckles to peek through? Yep – you guessed it – that was the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. With access to any foundation, that’s the one Meghan went with for her globally televised wedding – if that’s not a gold review, we don’t know what is!
If you’re lusting for the same luminous look but not keen to spend big, try using the Max Factor Skin Luminizer Miracle Foundation, L’Oréal Paris Lumi Magique Foundation and COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Luminous Natural Glow Foundation.
