Need a New Foundation

I have been using a CC cream for a couple years but I think my skin is changing - I’m about to turn 50. My cheeks are very dry but my forehead is oily. I’m noticing that after I put on blush and powder, the makeup on my cheeks looks flaky and cakey. I have been doing a lot of exfoliation to try to even out my skin texture and deal with age spots.

@LawyerBabe -- being well over 50, I get it. First thing, if you don't have a hydrating serum or essence in your skin routine, now's the time to add that in, before putting on your moisturizer in the AM. 


 I love bareMinerals COMPLEXION RESCUE™ Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream SPF 30, it's light but can build a little, is good for all skin types, and looks lovely and never cakey. It just evens out my skin without making it look like I'm wearing foundation. And it's extra protection against sun damage.

@heavyhedon Thank you! I will try it.

@LawyerBabe --I'd try to get a 3-4 day sample to try, from Sephora store or Ulta. They can help you get a good color match too.
