Inspired by the finest fabrics, this award-winning lightweight foundation was designed to correct and unify the complexion for instantly glowing skin. Reveal your inner light. Inspired by charmeuse silk, "The Fabric of Emperors," this luminous foundation glides on weightlessly for a flawless lit-from-within glow. Using exclusive Micro–fil™ technology to sculpt and brighten, this buildable coverage foundation improves texture and blurs imperfections. Comes in 30 shades to match every unique skin tone.

We're honoured that the iconic Luminous Silk foundation has been awarded a 5-star rating by BEAUTYcrew's Review Crew®! It's also been named an award-winner for "Best Liquid Foundation" and "Perfect Match, #1 Makeup Artist's Choice" for the 10th year in a row.


Working closely with the world’s largest cosmetics laboratory Giorgio Armani has invented Micro-fil™, a revolutionary process never seen before in the world of cosmetics and which combines the expertise of the textiles industry with that of Giorgio Armani to create completely new textures and colours. Micro-fil™ is a very precise way of blending and layering selected ingredients to synthesise cosmetic products. The refined ingredients are zero gravity, transparent, iridescent particles with exceptional slip and the power to sublimate subtle and delicate shades of colour – allowing the finest of nuances.

These ingredients give Luminous Silk Foundation a second skin effect, silky and luminous, with a uniform complexion that blurs imperfections. Luminous Silk Foundation allows flexible coverage, perfectly seamless, with no colour “build-up.” It is gives a long-lasting, “transfer-proof” performance with maximum comfort and a natural velvety finish.


A silky, fluid texture that is light and comfortable, for faces that radiate light and transparency. Foundation that melts into the skin and can be relied upon to be perfectly even every time with no visible edge. All the confidence of having a perfect, subtle and natural-looking complexion.

Luminous Silk Foundation is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 61.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel like silk I have recently changed all my skincare products and decided after reading reviews to purchase the luminous silk foundation. WOW Amazing is all I can say, I have a very oily T zone and this foundation is so silky it glides on your skin sitting perfectly, i only like a light coverage not the Cakey look and this product is perfect, you can build it up to how you like it, and you only need a little drop too. My T zone hasn’t been oily at all with this foundation I absolutely love it and so glad I decided to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best foundation I’ve ever tried- dry textured skin I have dry flakey textured skin meaning my skin has dry patches foundation likes to cling to and make me look horrible and cakey. Also, my skin is not smooth for some reason even though I use AHAs and BHAs, and this foundation makes my skin look like skin but BETTER! I struggled so much with finding a foundation that makes me look real and amazing and it’s this. Just do your skincare before applying, meaning cleanse moisturizer tone etc. Moisturizing is key to making sure any foundation works properly. Put two or three drops of any face oil on your fingers and put it all over your face before putting on the foundation with a wet beauty blender and you WILL SEE THE MAGIC!! It doesn’t sit into fine lines or wrinkles, nor does it cake at all on acne or dry patches. This is definitely a “natural” looking foundation but honestly, the style for a dull faced MASK is out the window. Just bc it’s medium coverage doesn’t mean it isn’t good don’t be afraid to try it! Just spot conceal with your favourite concealer and you should be fine. Whether or not you use it with an oil, it must be set to lock it in place because it is such a thin layer of makeup, you can hardly even feel it on your skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STUNNING I was so worried to purchase this foundation because of the price and i live no where near any stores to get a sample but a friend recommended this so i matched myself online and ordered it. Literally from first application i had no regrets worth every penny i have dry skin and it looks so glowy and smooth it photographs beautifully i’d say it’s light to medium coverage which is what i love i hate cake face i’m so glad i took the plunge and purchased this foundation i love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Found the holy grail of makeup :) I have mature combination skin & I work outdoors - makeup usually slides off my face BUT not now - I’ve found the one... I pre cleanse, cleanse, serum, moisturiser, prime, spray prep then foundation & powder T zone; yet to try Giorgio Armani primer & concealer - have ordered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best foundation I’ve ever used! Simply put, this is the best foundation in the world. I’ve tried so many luxury brand foundations (Chanel, ysl, etc) but none compares to this one. It goes on flawlessly and looks like real skin. The coverage is completely buildable and it won’t oxidise or change colour throughout the day. I just wish it wasn’t so expensive...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Match I had been wanting to try this foundation for a long time. I wished I hadn’t waited! This is the best foundation. Feels like you wearing nothing but still a good coverage with an luminous look. My colour match is perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite Very light weight, last very well, and doesn't cake on my dry skin. It can't cover all imperfections on the skin, but it does make you look like you have a nice skin condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, bright and beautiful This Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation is the very best foundation I have ever used. Both my skin and I just love the look and feel on my skin. It’s light enough and it makes my skin glow. Try this foundation and I am sure you will be very happy you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love love love this foundation! Super lightweight and easy to build up coverage. Never looks cakey, never separates or creases. I was a little hesitant at first as I can be a little oily at times, but it didn’t really make me feel or look oily than I normally would, if anything a little less. Even if you are one who doesn’t really like to powder, it really does have a really nice dewy finish (but not too wet looking) - look and feels like skin with a super healthy glow. I’m very pale also and the colour match was perfect (I went for shade 2). And if you really really want to treat yourself, highly recommend the primer as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Foundation on the market I never thought that spending more than a few dollars on a foundation would make so much difference. Not only do I not use as much, my complexion looks much smoother

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PERFECT MY SKIN Purchased this over a month ago and it sits so well on my skin. It doesn’t dry up or move over a long day which is issues I’ve had with past foundations. Layers on well for day time vs a night out. Blends well and sits great with bronze / blush

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Luxurious Foundation I purchased the 5.5 luminous silk foundation for the first time after reading many different reviews on it. The colour is a perfect light nude beige, and simply melts into your skin. This is a luxury product and performs like one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! Finally a foundation I can sheer out as I like, that matches my skin tone and undertone without me having to mix two colours, that gives my middle-aged skin some soft radiance, doesn't dry out or make my face greasy or enlarge pores. Really perfect so far.
