As you age, so does your skin. This means that just as you would switch your skincare routine to include more anti-ageing products, you should do the same with your makeup and foundation to get the best from it.

Which Foundation Finish is Best for Maturer Skin Types

You may be wondering if you should go for a matte, powder or dewy finish. Choosing the best finish for your skin will help help to emphasise glow while minimising the signs of ageing. Matte foundations tend to be a bit thick as they give full coverage so they can crease making wrinkles more apparent, especially on mature skin types prone to dryness. Powder foundations can settle into fine lines and wrinkles also emphasising them.

Radiant, Sheer or Lightweight liquid foundations are best as they will give your skin a youthful glow without leaving a heavy cakey finish. Opt for water-based foundations for ultimate hydration or serum-based formulations for the added benefit of skin-loving ingredients such as Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid.

How Should You Apply Foundation on Mature Skin

They best way to apply foundation is to always start with hydrated and moisturised skin, followed by a primer. Primers effectively fill out fine lines and wrinkles giving your face a smooth base for application. To get even coverage, opt for a makeup brush or sponge which can blend the foundation into your skin.
