Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
Glowing, healthy skin is at the heart of my medical practice and my #boweglow brand. I want my freshly washed skin to look and feel radiant. If you follow me on social media or visit my website often, you already know that all of the information I share is to help you to achieve the same goal!
When I opt to wear makeup, I want to choose a makeup which is lightweight and which allows my glow to shine through.
I have tried so many different foundations, but my favorite one is Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation. It doesn’t clog pores, even in my acne prone patients. I find that it hydrates my skin, so I don’t see creases in the fine lines that you would otherwise see in mattifying, drying foundations.
I blend Colors 4 and 6. I usually mix 1 pump of 6 and 2 pumps of 4 during the winter and then I alter the ratio when the weather gets warmer and I begin to use self-tanner again!
Also, here’s a tip that I find works for the best finish – I need to apply my foundation and let it sit for at least five minutes before applying bronzer or brush. I have found that the foundation needs to “settle” a bit into my skin before I apply other products, or I get a streaky finish.
