It is interesting that after all my years of working in cosmetics and now blogging about cosmetics that I have circled back to Giorgio Armani Beauty.  Whenever I venture out to try something else, somehow, I come back to it.  I worked for them in 2004 for about five years and although I went on to work for other high end cosmetic companies, I always longed for my Luminous Foundation.  I would discover something great but then realize that it never lived up to the expectations that Giorgio Armani Beauty set for me.  I could never achieve “that glow.” As a 45-year-old woman I am faced with the fact that I need makeup to achieve that youthful look.  Luminous Foundation is like gold in a jar.

Speaking of gold, in addition to the Luminous Foundation, the Fluid Sheer 10 will give any woman a sun-kissed, bronze glow without looking like she is wearing makeup.  That’s a miracle for women like me who hate makeup sitting in their lines, and avoid all things glittery because of it.   Having that natural glow is all us women really want.  Past forty, gone are the days of waking up fresh faced.  We have to work at it now.


The Luminous Silk Foundation

The Luminous Silk Foundation is exactly what is says, luminous.  Your complexion is radiant.  You will feel beautiful.  It evens out your skin tone without getting into the crevices or expression lines.   Perhaps this is why they say it was inspired by Diaphanous Silk.  Your once dull over forty complexion is now bright and luminous.  I started wearing it in my 30’s.  I watched countless women with mature skin come in and buy bottles of this stuff.  I always loved it. But now that I’m forty-five, I get it.  I really get it. Every time I wear it, I am complimented on my complexion, not my makeup.  It’s lightweight, luminous and loved by many.  You won’t just stop at the foundation.

Giorgio Armani makeup glides on your eyes, lips, and skin like butter.  It feels like silk and not makeup.  It melts into your skin, making you feel like it’s part of you and not something caked on.

It’s the only line of makeup that I can use for a natural look at my age, and pull off a nude lip, nude eyes, and bronzer without looking lifeless.  Again, I don’t get complimented on my makeup, I get complimented on my skin.  Everyone assumes that I am not wearing makeup when in fact I am wearing a face full of it. That’s how I want to be perceived.  Makeup is all about shading, contouring, and creating an illusion.


Tim Quinn

I had the privilege of working with Tim Quinn, Giorgio Armani’s Celebrity Face Designer and VP of Creative Artistry, one thing we have in common is our obsession with bronzer.  I asked Tim about the “must haves” for the summer.  He recommends Maestro Liquid Bronzer, he says, “it looks natural and wears well in heat and humidity.”  One of his “go to” products for the summer is  Maestro UV Primer with SPF 50.  He also loves the Eye Tints in the new Summer Neutral Mattes which are waterproof and crease proof.

Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do a “nude look” after age forty.


Do rush out and buy at least one product from Giorgio Armani Beauty.  Yes, it’s pricey.  Money can’t buy you happiness, but money can buy makeup, and makeup will make you happy.


  1. You look really good in the pic!!! I can never find anything that is exactly my color and this year is worse, we moved to Arkansas and the heat and sun, I tell ya!!!

  2. Looks great on you. I’ve had trouble in the past with powder sticking in and outlining wrinkles but the giorgio armani looks great on your face!

  3. I use a variety of products most are very expensive and natural what type or ingredients are in this brand. I am not due if I would adopt it but I like the golden colors that are clear to see from the pics you posted. I have a golden undertone never could figure out if it’s just golden or that red-gold thing because I am AA. I am sorry to say but you do look like you are wearing makeup to me but you also look like you are glowing and just plain beautiful. You look like you don’t even need it because you are so pretty already. If that is the compliments you get them I wonder why someone so luminous already would add to? But totally agree money will but you makeup that makes you happy. I know that for sure as I look at over 20 bottles of foundation as I fruitlessly search to find that perfect one…

  4. I am over 40 and need to replace my make up as I have not worn it for a couple of years no due to the cost of it. I like the way this looks on you.

  5. Thank you for this informative review on Giorgio~Armani Make up! I too am looking for some radiance in my Face & a little color too! I am almost 70 and my face is Ghost White! 🙂 All I would use is the Fluid Sheer in the Bottle and that Beautiful Color lipstick that is shown in the Picture! Just Love it! You look so Pretty in your Picture! Thankyou again for sharing Giorgio-Armani Makeup with us! 🙂

  6. Have heard about Giorgio Armani Beauty but have never been in a store to even try out the products. Budget is the boss sometimes
