Foundations for Mature Skin (Part II)

Looking for coverage, but not sure where to start? These products are worth checking out

Following up on last week’s article on foundation tips and tricks (Part I), we’ve compiled a list of some of the best foundations to meet the needs of more mature skin.

  1. IT Cosmetics: Your Skin but Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+
    Most of IT Cosmetics’ beloved skincare and face products have ingredients to combat the effects of aging, and this high-coverage CC+ cream is no different. CC creams provide both moisture and foundation coverage. Plus, the SPF 50+ is perfect for everyday use, so you don’t have to apply a sunscreen, as well. IT Cosmetics also has an anti-aging primer that is very well reviewed.
  1. Maybelline: Fit Me! Dewy & Smooth Foundation
    This is a great foundation for those on a budget. The smoothing and dewy effect, plus its light-reflective qulaity, will add a healthy glow to the face while smoothing out fine lines.
  1. NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick
    For something a little different, which will minimize any shine, you can try NARS’s foundation stick. The matte finish will smooth over fine lines and wrinkles without emphasizing them and will cover any sun spots.
  1. Make Up For Ever Liquid Lift Foundation
    A highly ranked product, this foundation can be moisturizing enough for dry and mature skin, but light enough to not feel cakey or heavy. It helps to firm the skin. Make Up For Ever is also a brand that most makeup artists swear by.
  1. Revlon Color Stay Whipped Crème Makeup
    Another great product for those on a budget, Revlon’s creamy foundation glides on easily but is still strong enough to cover sensitive skin issues.
  1. Estee Lauder Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Serum Makeup SPF 25
    This foundation will brighten the skin, provide some sun protection, and work to reduce the appearance of lines.
  1. L’Oreal Paris Visible Lift Serum Absolute Advanced Age-Reversing Makeup
    Our final drugstore recommendation, L’Oreal Paris’ foundation comes highly reviewed. The product offers good coverage and will last the day.
