Lydia Sellers worked as Markle’s make-up artist for two years, before the Suits star moved to the UK. In that time, she revealed to Refinery29 that the actress was ‘in-the-know’ about beauty, and when it came to her base products she knew what she liked – and what she didn’t. Sellers explained “Every time I’d do her make-up, she’d say, ‘Can we just make sure my freckles are peeking through? I don’t want a ton of foundation,'”. With that in mind, the make-up artist would always opt for Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation, as the formula could easily be sheered out with a Beautyblender.

Meghan Markle and her make-up artist aren’t the only fans of Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk, the cult product has built up a BIG following online. A regular feature on Sephora’s ‘Best-Sellers’ list, it’s has racked up over 1.3K 5-star reviews from buyers to date.
One reviewer wrote:
“This foundation was a game changer for me. I’ve worked with hair and makeup for many many years and have never quite found a universal full cover foundation that works for every person I use it on (me included)! Also, for someone who struggles with problem skin (helloooo cystic/hormonal acne!), this product saves me. It is a serious confidence booster. Coverage is buildable, which is nice. If I do a light layer, you can still see some freckles popping out- great for the natural look. A little goes a long way. Tones are versatile and mix well. I have a light complexion with golden undertones (4 is a good match). Absolutely worth the price!”
Well, if it’s good enough for a soon-to-be-royal (and 1,300 Sephora buyers), we’re convinced..
