My best Foundations for mature girl 👩🏼‍⚕️💃🏼

I admit it. Me and my skin are going to turn 56 in a few months. I don’t know how it happened, but I recently realized that I really hadn’t changed my foundation, or my basic makeup routine, in a very long time, despite the fact that my once luminous skin has changed a lot. I can’t honestly complain, because for an oldie like me, my skin still looks pretty good. But I owe that to good genes, (thanks Mom) and an unwavering commitment to impeccable cleansing, great moisturizer and the best eye cream. In spite of my good luck and best efforts, I’m starting to see those laugh lines and crows feet when I’m neither laughing, nor squinting, dang it. My oily t-zone is still shiny by end of day, and my pores, once almost invisible, are starting to show on the bridge of my nose and around my mouth and chin. Because I’m at least minimally vain, I figured it might be a smart idea to try out some foundations for aging skin.

Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup

This cult classic definitely deserves a spot in my top 5. It wears a little heavier than most of my other foundations, but is perfect with my Rosacea skin.

Laura Mercier Silk Crème Moisturizing Photo Edition Foundation

For those of you with oily/combination skin like me, there are those times when you want to be picture perfect, and you’re willing to wear makeup that’s a little thicker than normal to get that flawless look. While I wouldn’t wear this foundation everyday, for my aging skin, it delivers long lasting performance for special occasions when I know I’ll look back and wish I’d paid more attention to my makeup that day. Think weddings, photo shoots, TV interviews, whatever. This hydrating foundation creates a pretty, flawless, radiant canvas that can last up to 12 hours. It feels mostly comfortable on your skin and well hides even hard-to-cover imperfections. This moisturizing, long-wearing formula smooths skin texture and visibly evens skin tone. It applies and blends easily. To keep your foundation looking good all day, start with Laura Mercier Foundation Primer. It contains jojoba oil, along with vitamins A, C and E that revitalize and hydrate aging skin. If you simply want a healthy glow for everyday wear, skip foundation altogether with Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer with a touch of blush, followed by loose powder.

This is a fantastic foundation if you already have relatively good skin. It is also a very light foundation which allows you to build up. But what I really like about it is that your own skin shows through making it the most natural looking foundation. So it's basically your skin but better. The finish is semi-matte. So if you're looking for a natural foundation this is for you!

Giorgio Armani Maestro Fusion Makeup Octinoxate Sunscreen SPF 15

Never disappoint me! My skin is not always the same, and this is the reason that I used a variety of foundations, depending how I feels my skin. Durability 6 hours.

Yves Saint Laurent Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation

This foundation is great for any skin type and I've recommended it to many girls and they have never gone back. What I love about this foundation is its illuminating flawless result. It has the worlds best seller YSL touche éclat infused in the foundation to eliminate any dark and shadowy areas on your face (you're basically buying 2 products in 1!). Its lightweight formula means you can build it up depending how you like your coverage. So if you're looking for radiance this is the foundation for you.
