FOTD - Face Of The Day

Today I got to do a little test-run of my most recent foundation purchase - Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk. Will do a video later on with a more in-depth review but today I really love it. I'm on my last pumps of my YSL Teint Resist foundation and while I was in Toronto last weekend I just couldn't resist stopping (and drooling) over the Giorgio Armani counter at Holt Renfrew.

Keeping the make-up to a minimum today... here's what I am wearing:

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation - Shade #5
Bobbi Brown Colour Corrector - Light Peach (under the eyes)
Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer - Natural (on blemishes)
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Powder

NARS Laguna Bronzer
NARS Mounia Blush

MAC Fluidline - Blacktrack
MAC Kohl Power Eyeliner Pencil- Feline (on waterline)
Chanel Single Eyeshadow - Vert Khaki (on lower lashline)
L'Oreal Volume Million Mascara (or whatever it's called)

YSL Gloss Pur - #7

Now a photo with flash and a silly pose:

I love the finish of this foundation. While the coverage isn't as great as other foundations I've tried, it really nails the "skin-like" finish. It has great staying power on me as well and photographs nicely from what I've experienced so far. When I bought it, the MA applied it on me together with one of their fluid sheers and set it with their compact powder foundation... my face looked amazing allll day long, and no sign of greasy outbreak. I might have to invest in that powder next!

Hope you all have a great day, and a happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers :)

  1. Lovely, everyday look. Your skin looks gorgeous :)

    Charlene xxxxxx

  2. It looks amazing, I do however tend to go after heavier coverage foundations.
    Isn't it funny that beauty addicts can have the best skin, and still like to reach for full coverage foundation? Just something I noticed, haha.


  3. Your skin looks lovely! Really glowy and flawless! You're looking beautiful as ever :D xx

  4. You look gorgeous, definitely want to try the armani foundation! xxx

  5. your cheekbones are amazing! love the fotd, you look lovely :)

  6. u look gorj as always, loving the lippie too <3

  7. Hi Sandra, thank you for doing face of the day, it's really helpful for those of us who haven't tried out the foundation. I have a question about the Bobbi Brown concealer! I have occasional breakouts and acne scarring, I've been using Bobbi Brown concealer and it works well but I'm running out of it and contemplating whether I should repurchase it or try something else. What would you recommend? Which concealer is favourite of yours that you've used for acne and acne scarring?

  8. Beatuiful. Just defining your natural looks. ♥

  9. What a pretty FOTD =) Your pictures always come out so good, what camera do you use? I'm a newcomer to blogging and it's been pretty difficult for me to get a quality picture that captures the colors right! Any tips?

  15. You look great! I wish I had the patience to do my make up that properly every day!
    I have a bit of a silly question... the shoes on your header.. are they shoes you own or is that just a picture you found? They are pretty awesome!

  16. @Sweet Vanity haha definitely not shoes I own! they are beautiful, expensive YSL Tribute booties that I admire from afar :)

  17. Gorgeous finish on that foundation Sandra. I like sheer to medium coverage so I'll def. have to check that Armani out. What shade did you purchase btw? We have a similar skin tone (if I use a bit of self-tanner, of course). Great FOTD!
