Hey! I was hoping to get some suggestions!! What is everyoneโ€™s favorite brand of clean makeup for mature skin? Iโ€™m 43 and I feel like at this point some makeup is starting to settle into fine lines around my eyes. 

Re: Foundation

Hey Pumpkin!  Are you married to foundation?  I ask because I, found myself struggling to find one that would โ€œworkโ€ and then at some point just rethought my goals and quit using it. What is it, specifically, that you want foundation to provide?

Re: Foundation

Itโ€™s funny you say that, because I have started to not put any make up on under my eyes because I feel like it makes me look olderโ€ฆ but I do think I need liquid foundation for the rest of my face. I work the night shift and I feel like if I donโ€™t have foundation and blush on I look sick!!! 

Re: Foundation

I think that youโ€™ve fallen into the trap ๐Ÿชค a lot of us get intoโ€ฆ youโ€™ve internalized this image of yourself as normal, and so when you see your actual selfโ€ฆ you view that as something โ€˜sickโ€™ (or something else negative.)


I would actually recommend weaning yourself off of foundation. I think youโ€™ll find you can actually love your skin. That doesnโ€™t mean going cold turkey, or forgoing all makeup. Iโ€™m a big fan of Laura Mercierโ€™s tinted moisturizer. Sheโ€™s got a few different formulas and a good shade range; you can buy a travel size to just dip your toe in. 

After I stopped using foundation, I still kept using concealerโ€ฆ but eventually stopped using that. I still play with blush and bronzer. I love doing my eyes. But I found that once I stopped using foundation, I started focusing more towards my actual skin, and improved my routine.

Look into a good hydrating primer before swapping your foundation. Sometimes the perfect primer can fix everything else 

Re: Foundation

Whatโ€™s your favorite primer?

Re: Foundation

Iโ€™m on my second bottle of Armani foundation. Itโ€™s the best one yet for my mature skin, Iโ€™m 53. I donโ€™t find that it settles at all, very smooth application and I no longer need to use powder over my makeup. I know itโ€™s expensive but itโ€™s the only product Iโ€™ve used that seems to work and look natural on my skin. 

Re: Foundation

Can you tell me what specific Armani foundation you use? I want to try!

Re: Foundation

I use the Luminous Silk and I buy the mini kind because I mix colours depending on the season. 

i have yet to find anything that looks like my skin the way this stuff does and Iโ€™ve tried a lot of brands!




Re: Foundation

I would recommend the nars light reflecting foundation. It is just a beautiful foundation for mature skin.
