REVIEW – GIORGIO ARMANI’S NEW MAESTRO GLOW FOUNDATION

Giorgio Armani, master of skin, strikes again with the recent release of Maestro Glow Foundation.

 

Armani is best known for it’s iconic range of foundations, particularly my favourite the Luminous Silk Foundation. The new Maestro Glow sits in-between their Maestro Foundation – a medium to full coverage with a satin finish- and their Luminous Silk foundation -a versatile coverage that floats over the skin to a matt-like-finish, brightening skin for a more luminous look. Maestro Glow is so light-weight it enables you the flexibility to choose when and where you would like to build coverage or blend for a more sheer-like finish making it a versatile coverage foundation!

What separates this foundation from the others, as its name suggests, is its “GLOW” factor! Swapping out water and powders for a mix of skincare oils and pure pigment allows Maestro Glow to look less ‘makeup-y’ on your skin. Don’t let the oils scare you as the revolutionary formula doesn’t look or feel greasy on the skin. Instead the lightweight oils penetrate where needed and then evaporate for a more even, RADIANT finish.

 

Now, I recommend using the dropper to add foundation to the back of your hand before working it into the skin using the warmth of your fingertips to blend. If this is too messy or you want to build coverage, use a damp foundation sponge and layer the foundation.

 

On a scale of 1 to 10 the glow factor is a 10/1o and works beautifully under a powder or Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation Compact which helps with longevity, controlling shine or improving coverage under the eyes for instance.

Whether you’re coming into Summer and want to enhance your glow factor or Winter is looming and you want to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful, Maestro Glow has got you covered.

 

I’m giving the Maestro Glow Foundation a 9/10

Prep and Prime

The key to preparing the skin is to Prime the skin first. Giorgio Armani’s UV Master Primer in Beige is perfect for adding luminosity evening out skin tone and pores adding longevity to your foundation

Luminosity & Colour Correcting

I love working with really fair skin tones and using products like the Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer in the more pinkish tones to brighten and make the over-all skin tone look more youthful. Often in this situation gold’s or bronze can make skin look dirty where as pink and apricot tones contract the blue undertones therefor brightening and adding a youthful vibrancy to skin!

One of the biggest misconceptions with achieving a dewy finish is the use of powder. Setting a dewy or radiant finish foundation is essential when controlling un-wanted shine and building longevity. Armani has combined two products in one with their Luminous Silk Compact. Like the foundation it has a radiant finish ensuring you maintain that luminous finish while setting and holding the foundation in place for an all-day-wear!

    I’m really confused by the differences in Armani formulas. I use luminous silk at night, I find it too heavy for daytime and sometimes too matte or powdery for a finish. (I have combination skin.) what are the finishes of the maestro fusion and the luminous silk?
    I really want a natural no makeup look that just enhances my skin and not too matte. Which should I go with?
    Is Maestro Fusion a Matte finish?
    I tried the glow but wasn’t in love, I felt it didn’t make my skin as flawless as the other formulas.
    Thanks!

    Hi Nicole… I now use the Maestro Glow for day looks and the Luminous Silk when I want more or a refined foundation look, which is what I would suggest with what you are describing in your needs and wants. Im kinda guessing by your remark of the Maestro Glow NOT making your skin as flawless means you actually like more coverage – did you try building the coverage by layer? Theres two ways I would handle this on then layering it – one is to use it with a concealer or the Luminous Silk Foundation where I like or needed the coverage OR use the Luminous Silk Compact to butt out shine and BUILD Coverage. It has such a devine finish, I truly love it!
    Before Maestro I used to add equal parts of one of the Fluid Sheers to the Luminous Silk Foundation to make my mix a lot more glowy and to lessen the coverage. You could try that as well! xxMM
