Best Foundation and Concealer Combo

Foundations and concealers are essential elements to any makeup look you can think of. Whether it’s the bold red lips or the more natural makeup–the base makes all the difference in the world.

As someone who loves the idea of “your skin but better,” I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect foundation and concealer combo for some time now. Trust me when I say I’ve tried a lot, but haven’t been completely satisfied.

So, after a lot of research, I have found one that is often paired together by many makeup artists and for good reasons. It’s the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer combination. I thought I should give it a try. If you’re curious, my foundation shade is 5.75, and I use shade Macadamia for my undereye concealing. So let’s get started with my thoughts about the products!

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($70)

I loved how this foundation just glided on my skin and gave me that soft glowy finish. What I liked more is that it has excellent coverage, and the shade completely matches my skin tone. Personally, I like the idea of skin peeking through makeup, so I prefer using only one pump during the day for a more natural look. However, if I have a night out, I will go for a more medium to full coverage to have that flawless finish in photographs. In case you’re wondering, this foundation looks amazing in photos. Almost like my skin’s been airbrushed. If you like the feeling of your base being light on your skin, this product is the bomb! This foundation deserves all the praises it has been getting, and I can understand why it’s a cult favourite.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer ($37)

I’m someone who prefers little to no foundations, but I have the most horrible dark circles, which makes me look like a zombie from Walking Dead. This is exactly why I need a peach-toned concealer to cover up my under eyes, so I’m not always asked, “are you sick?” The Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Macadamia does just that. It’s so smooth and can be easily blended with the foundation to hide blemishes and imperfections. And although the concealer has a light creamy texture, the coverage is fantastic! The peach completely covers the blues and doesn’t make the undereye look ashy. But that’s not the only reason to love this product. For me, concealers have to last long to get my seal of approval, and this one lasts solid 6-8 hours.


I’m glad I found this foundation concealer dream team! Both the Giorgio Armani Luminous Glow foundation and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer are very smooth to apply and give the illusion of perfect skin. Have you tried the two together? What do you think of the products?
