I don’t like to spend a lot of time doing my makeup. There, I said it. I’m a total makeup minimalist these days and I’m not really sorry about it. That’s why more often than not, I reach for Armani Beauty products. Like just about every celebrity makeup artist on the planet, I find that the brand’s staple products (foundation, eye shadow, and blush) always help me create a flawless five-minute face.
Although there’s nothing wrong with taking your time on a look, Armani products really work both ways—they’re buildable, blendable, and compliment so many different skin tones. The brand’s Luminous Silk Foundation ($65) is basically legendary for its silky, skin-perfecting, noncomedogenic formula. Makeup artists keep it on hand at all times to create a fast, foolproof base and I honestly do the same. Whether you fall into the “extra AF” or minimalist camp like moi, Armani products truly work for everyone. To confirm which products are the best of the best, I asked two celebrity MUAs to weigh in.
