As a makeup artist, I can tell you that one of the hardest types on skin to do makeup on is mature skin. This is because when you grow older, your skin is gonna lose elasticity and fine lines like your wrinkles and laugh lines are going to appear and makeup is harder to blend and set. This means that a flawless look is harder to achieve. Fortunately, there are a lot of makeup manufacturers who create mature skin friendly makeup and here are 5 of these foundations that you can consider for your professional makeup kit or even for yourself if you think you need it.
IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream
This product has been getting a lot of attention lately because it’s just so good. Personally, I discovered CC Creams because of my Korean friends. And because of this, the kind of CC Cream that I’m used to is the shiny, dewy one – yes, the one that helps you cop that perfect KDrama look. And yes, initially I thought only Korean brands had it but apparently, one of the biggest brands in the west carries one.
I guess one of the reasons why this product made waves in the market is because of its nourishing properties. It contains ingredients like collagen, biotin, ascorbic acid and one of the most hydrating ingredients out there – hyaluronic acid.
The texture is really easy to blend and it spreads nicely on the skin even if you have wrinkles. Don’t forget that this has SPF 50+ so you can definitely use this outdoors.
L’Oréal True Match Super-Blendable Powder
If you have mature skin and it’s oily, then a powder foundation will suit you better. But it’s quite difficult to find one because powders set on fine lines if not applied properly. L’Oréal released the True Match line a couple of years ago and it hasn’t left shelves at all.
One of the most promising product from the True Match line is the Super-Blendable Powder because it doesn’t give your skin a chalky finish. It gives you a smooth finish instead. And it’s available in 34 shades which isn’t usual to powders.
Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation Makeup
Here’s another very popular foundation in the market that is very well-loved by all ages – the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation. This is one of my favorite foundations to use even for myself because of how easy it is to blend.
This foundation has a lot of good reviews and rightfully so. If you consider this as a foundation for you, then you’re in for a treat because the greatest feature that this product has is that you can control its opacity. It can achieve both a sheer coverage and a full coverage. I rarely hear anyone complain about the formula of this foundation so you can expect nothing but great results.
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
If you want a fast-absorbing product then go for the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation. This is something you want if you don’t feel so comfortable wearing base makeup. Admittedly, as I age, I feel like I don’t want to wear that much foundation anymore so if I need to, sometimes I prefer light weight ones.
This foundation is great for concealing texture because of its micro-fil technology that blurs fine lines. It even hides large pores, acne marks and even hyperpigmentation. Sounds too good to be true? Well, for the price you’re paying, then you can really expect high quality.
Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Filter Foundation
In the advent of selfies, you indeed need something to give you that automatic filter in real life. The Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Filter Foundation is another wonder product for people with wrinkly or textured skin plus it doesn’t cost much because it’s a drugstore brand. Plus, you will enjoy the convenience of the built-in blender that’s already attached to the bottle. It sets well so it doesn’t rub on your clothes.
