In the world of celeb-approved makeup, Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation, £46 here, reigns supreme as one of the best-loved foundations for famous faces.

With everyone from Kim Kardashian to Meghan Markle said to wear the glow-boosting base, it’s no surprise it’s become a makeup bag must-have for beauty fans who are looking to replicate their glowing, airbrushed-looking skin.

However, there’s no denying it’s a little on the pricey side, and without an A-list budget to support our beauty buying habits, we’ve been keeping an eye out for an affordable alternative that gives the same silk-effect finish without the celeb-worthy price tag.

Makeup Revolution's new Skin Silk Serum Foundation is said to be similar to Armani's Luminous Silk

Thankfully for bargain hunters everywhere, Makeup Revolution has just launched the very thing we’ve been looking for with its Skin Silk Serum Foundation, £10.99 here, the brand’s first-ever light to medium coverage, serum-infused foundation.

Powered by skincare, the foundation is designed to feel lighter than air on your skin, and it enriched with hyaluronic acid and peptide complexes which help plump and hydrate your complexion, giving you a radiant, glowy base.

The formula is also non-comedogenic and breathable to avoid that heavy, cakey feeling that other foundations can leave you with, giving a your-skin-but-better appearance. You can use it sparingly for a light, subtle coverage, or build it up to create a fuller, second-skin appearance.

The foundation is infused with serum for a lightweight, skin-loving finish

Just like Armani’s celeb-approved foundation, the Makeup Revolution Skin Silk Serum Foundation, £10.99 here, comes in a glass bottle with built-in pump that gives it a luxurious feeling, and you can choose from 20 different shades across three different skin tones; fair to light, medium to tan, and dark to deep, so you can choose a shade that suits you perfectly.

The foundation launched at the end of January and has already been getting some rave reviews from eager shoppers, with one saying: “Tried the sample of Skin Silk foundation, it's soooo good! Goes on effortlessly and gives great coverage without caking. Having mature skin, it's nice to find something that works, and doesn't break the bank.”

Someone else said: “Have used the foundation in the two different shades. Actually feels like silk,” whilst another wrote: “This foundation had a silky feeling on my skin!”

A fourth added: “I don't normally use foundations but this feels very nice on my skin not heavy like the other ones I've used before. Made my skin look flawless and dewy.”

The foundation comes in a choice of 20 different shades

There’s no denying that the Makeup Revolution Skin Silk Serum Foundation, £10.99 here, is an absolute bargain, but if you’re looking to save money but still want a luxury brand, you can currently get the Perricone MD No Makeup Foundation Serum SPF 20 reduced from its usual price of £52 to £15.60 here on LookFantastic.

The serum-infused foundation also has some rave reviews from shoppers, with one saying: “I was looking for a light foundation which would also cover flawlessly and not block pores or feel/look heavy..this ticks all those boxes..feels a nice sheer dewy appearance.”
