Have you tried it? Meghan Markle’s favourite foundation is one of the best face bases EVER

Meghan Markle

In a world where Covid-19 is the main topic of discussion, makeup is a welcome distraction especially when it comes to Meghan Markle’s favourite foundation.

Whether you’re a fan or not, some people want to know every last detail about the Duchess of Sussex.

Ranging from Meghan Markle’s favourite makeup products to how she and Harry first met to their family life with baby Archie, EVERY single thing.

The new mum always has glowing skin and so, we’ll definitely listen up when her must-have makeup products are chatted about.

It turns out that her go-to foundation is none other than Georgio Armani Luminous Silk, a cult product in recent years and one which has pride of place in my everyday makeup bag.

The revolutionary texture of Armani Silk won Meghan Markle, and women worldwide, over for it uses micro-fil technology to sculpt and brighten whilst blurring imperfections.

The medium coverage foundation is available in 24 shades and having tried it, I can tell you it lives up to the hype.

This is the type of base that results in people commenting on your skin and asking what foundation you’re using.

Another advantage of this base is the fact you can apply one layer for daytime but it’s completely buildable so you can use it for a night time look too.

Lydia F. Sellers is Meghan’s former makeup artist and hairstylist and worked with the former Suits actress before she moved to London.

Chatting to Refinery 29 previously, she explained that Meghan would always make a specific request when getting her makeup done. 

 “Can we just make sure my freckles are peeking through? I don’t want a ton of foundation.

Lydia explained how she would use a Beautyblender to apply the base and it’s the perfect accompaniment for Luminous Silk.

“It was more about the amount of product that went on her skin and keeping it really fresh and dewy, rather than caking it on. So I’d use the Armani Luminous Silk Foundation with a Beautyblender because it’s really easy to sheer out”.

Meghan isn’t the only celebrity convert either for Kim Kardashian has also professed her love of this product and if you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend.
