Foundation for Mature Skin
I have mature dry skin and live in a very low humidity climate.
I've found 2 products that make my skin look more youthful and polished, without looking overly made up.
Always use your primer of choice before application :
Hourglass makes a highly pigmented "tinted moisturizer" .. it has a lot of color so I think of it more as a foundation. Makes my skin glow. Even being oil free, it works with my dry skin, so its formula is unique. It's rather amazing.
And on a lower price point level I found that Smashbox has a nice foundation that lifts my look :-) I gott myself this kit for Xmas and can use all the products, even the Halo powder. I usually skip powder because it makes me look older - this doesn't. I really like the way the fuller coverage foundation sinks into my skin and looks real, not like a mask.
in both companies product lines, I have to use the lightest color they offer.
I have fair/light skin, thin and dry due to surgical menopause a few years ago. I'm always looking for those grail products that let me look like me , before surgery. Hope this helps.
Sephora has a lot of good foundations, but I have found that a lot of people like Tarte's ReCreate Anti-aging Foundation. It gives good coverage, decreases fine lines and wrinkles, helps brighten, moisturize, and firm the skin, AND has SPF 15. Tarte is also an all natural line so it is good for sensitive skin too. If you go into Sephora and ask to try it out you can have someone put it on you before you buy it and see if it gives you the coverage you are looking for.
Clinique also has anti-aging makeup.
I would recommend Clinique Dewy Smooth Anti-Aging Makeup SPF 15 which you can find at: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P12
It plumps your skin, so lines seem to disappear, and it smoothes over imperfections, evening out your skin tone. It protects with SPF 15 and provides moderate-to-full coverage with a natural, dewy finish.
Another option is Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Foundation SPF 20 which you can find at: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P24
This long-wearing foundation delivers beautiful, buildable coverage and protects your skin from sun damage. Light diffusers instantly diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while a patent-pending complex provides antiaging benefits. Collagen-boosting action creates firmer, younger looking skin.
I hope this helps you.
