Drugstore makeup has gone a long way and even makeup artists have their favorite dupes of luxury brands. However, there are just times that hardcore beauty junkies want something extra special and that comes in the form of designer makeup. Just like designer clothing, it can be hard to discern which designer makeup products are worth spending heaps of hard-earned money on. With the help of beauty editors from Glamour, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Who What Wear and Byrdie, we've narrowed down the top designer makeup products that are worth the splurge.
The Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation get the thumbs-up across the board. You can probably ask every celebrity makeup artist for foundation recommendations and this one will always be included in the top list. It's buildable and long-lasting coverage and semi-luminous finish just can't be duplicated by any drugstore option. It's also non-comedogenic which makes it ideal for sensitive and acne-prone skin and it helps that the shade selection is wide with 40 inclusive shades. Since foundation sits directly on your skin for long periods, it's worth the splurge.
This concealer-slash-highlighter has been around for a long time and remains to be a holy grail in the beauty industry. Many brands have tried to reproduce YSL's formula, but their efforts have remained in vain. Splurge on the real deal and see the difference for yourself.
