Look beautiful on a budget with these luxury makeup dupes

Giorgio Armani Luxurious Silk Foundation. Even the name suggests that you’re about to dip your beauty sponge in luxury and become a modern day work of art, because you are. There’s a reason that this cult favorite luxury makeup product can be found in just about every celebrity MUA and beauty influencer’s bag. The medium coverage foundation is the ideal balance between dewy and matte that provides a filter-like finish, yet still looks 100% natural on your skin. It has nearly flawless ratings on MIRA BEAUTY for being hydrating, brightening, lightweight, and non-oxidizing, and is basically the definition of a “holy grail” beauty product. The only problem? It’s $64. As much as we’d like to invest in the Giorgio Armani Luxurious Silk Foundation for everyday wear, it’s more of a special occasion product. However, the good news is that there are plenty of makeup dupes that give you the same luminous glow at half (or even ⅓!) the cost. From drugstore classics to high-end faves, here are our favorite luxury makeup dupes for this cult foundation.

But like every product launched by Physician’s Formula, The Healthy Foundation puts your skin’s health first while simultaneously providing a glowing and gorgeous complexion. You won’t find any harsh ingredients in this luxury beauty dupe - just an exclusive Brightening Complex, Hyaluronic Acid for hydration, and Vitamins A, C, and E to nourish the skin while providing long lasting and even coverage. Plus SPF 20 for sun protection. Trade in your Giorgio Armani Luxurious Silk Foundation for this cult drugstore product, which 93% of MIRA guests say is smooth, lightweight, and buildable on the skin.
