Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation 6.5
- weightless and luminous oil-free fluid
- natural finish
- all-day sheer to moderate coverage
The way I applied this was I first prepped my face with moisturizer and then I put one pump of foundation on a clean palette. I used my MAC 187 brush and stippled it all over my face and then buffed my face in light, circular motions. Because its a light foundation, I needed a few pumps to get the desired coverage I wanted.
Thankfully, it didn’t seem at all sheer to me. At the moment, my skin is fairly clear, except for a few pimples that are in the process of healing and a little redness in my cheeks. This foundation covered all of that. No redness from my pimple blemishes showed through. My skin was completely flawless. I would say the coverage is a solid medium.
The beautiful thing about this foundation is, it makes it look like I’ve applied an iluminating tinted moisturizer on completely perfect skin. It doesn’t look like a heavy foundation. It just makes my skin appear like I have naturally good, clear skin. And I love that about this! A very natural flawless.
The color is PERFECT for me. It matches my neck to the point. I got the shade 6.5 (Tawny). For reference, I am a MAC NC37-40. A problem that I always have is finding a foundation with the right amount of yellow. If the foundation is the slightest bit pink or peachy, it will not match me. This has the perfect amount of yellow.
Because this makes my skin look fresh and radiant, I like pairing it with a cream bronzer as opposed to a powder. The bronzer I’ve been pairing this foundation is my Chanel Bronze Universel, and they go together perfectly.
This foundation also claims to be dewy, but on me, it is more of a satin. I don’t need much setting powder, just a little on my nose, around my frown lines and under my eyes. The staying power is wonderful, and it doesn’t seem to disappear throughout the day. Only after several hours, I’ll notice the tip of my nose needs touching up.
I’m definitely adding this to my list of favorite foundations. I think its perfect for days you want to do heavy eye makeup without looking like you have tons of makeup all over your face. Will definitely repurchase!
