Burberry introduces Matte Glow, a new generation of foundation that perfects the complexion with a long-lasting luminous matte finish. Its innovative second-skin formula blends seamlessly onto the skin, delivering undetectable, high coverage for a flawless yet natural result. Enriched with a life-proof technology, Matte Glow Foundation is heat, humidity and pollution resistant.

To mark the launch, British actress Lily James is captured in a series of images shot by Inez and Vinoodh which celebrate ‘the Burberry glow’ – a sophisticated, natural and healthy complexion, an aesthetic at the heart of the Burberry Beauty ethos.


  • Ultra-lightweight, breathable formula enriched with a high concentration of pigments to soften imperfections.
  • Delivers an undetectable coverage for a flawless complexion.
  • Spherical powders help keep shine under control while light emollients ensure all day comfortable wear.
  • A life-proof technology ensures lasting wear with humidity, heat and pollution resistance.



Apply three pumps of Burberry Matte Glow foundation onto the back of the hand.

  • Use fingers or Burberry Foundation Brush No. 04 to apply the foundation onto skin starting at the centre of the face, blending outward.
  • Add Burberry Cashmere Concealer to further conceal imperfections or dark spots.



A team of shade experts worked with Burberry to create the new foundation range of thirty shades from fair to dark, covering warm, cool and neutral undertones to suit a wide range of skin tones.

To find the perfect shade tone:

  • Select your skin tone intensity from fair to dark, indicated by the shade number (from 10 to 140), and the skin tone family (fair, light, medium, deep or dark).
  • Select your undertone between cool, neutral and warm.
    • Cool undertone: bare skin has a rosy tone and burns easily in the sun.
    • Neutral undertone: bare skin is more evenly toned, not too pink or golden.
    • Warm undertone: bare skin has a golden or olive tone and tans easily in the sun.


Burberry Matte Glow shade names are inspired from professional make-up naming system. From Fair, to Dark, the shade names are gradual to ease the consumer experience while finding the most appropriate shade.
