When it comes to make-up, Eva Longoria’s look is always flawless. Sultry but subtle, she loves a smoked out eye paired with a nude lip and a flawless base.
The perfectly concealed yet luminous base that Eva (or rather her make-up artist) achieves when it comes to her foundation is something that we want a slice of. After half an hour of Googling her favourite beauty products, interjected with several intervals of lusting over her faultlessly chic outfit choices, we have the answer to Eva Longoria’s perfectly polished make-up: Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation.
After hot-footing it to Fenwick for a sample, it’s official… this is the most beautiful foundation ever, and coming from someone who has tried everything from Bourjois to Nars to MAC with flirtations with every other brand under the sun in between, that’s quite a statement. It offers a medium coverage but is very buildable, meaning it can be applied more liberally where necessary without looking too heavy. The finish is perfect: it’s flawlessly glowy without being too dewy, meaning it’s great for anyone with normal/dry, normal or even normal/oily skin.
It contains no SPF which means it looks amazing in photos so no wonder Eva loves it for the red carpet – no tell tale white-cast flash back in sight! It’s also a big hit with Jaime King and Denise Richards and is quite the favourite amongst the pros in the beauty industry, but it often slips under the radar when us non-celebs are browsing the make-up counters for a new foundation. Next time you’re on the hunt for the perfect base though, make a beeline for your nearest Giorgio Armani counter and ask for a sample, you’re bound to love it!
Giorgio Armani Beauty can be found in selected John Lewis, Fenwick, Debenhams and House of Fraser stores, as well as in Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Harrods. The Luminous Silk Foundation is priced at £34.50 and it’s worth every penny!
