The Best Foundations for Mature Skin
With so many different finishes, formulations, textures and benefits, finding a foundation that truly serves your complexion can be hard – especially if fine lines and wrinkles are your main concern. What makes it even more difficult to put complete trust in a brand is finding a product that actually does what it says on the packaging.
Mature skin types deserve a specialised treatment that acts upon the skin, as well as concealing the first signs of ageing. But what products truly do the job? Ahead, we’ve put together a guide on some of the best foundations for mature skin that actively help to turn back the clock on your complexion.
Dubbed as an anti-ageing award winner by Grazia, this must-have foundation has won the hearts of women everywhere. Its lightweight yet pigmented texture effectively covers dark spots and promotes an even complexion without exaggerating the appearance of fine lines or looking cakey. Its ability to remain in place all day has also been publicly admired, making this a sure winner for mature skin types.
This demi-matt foundation truly is the secret to a youthful glow, thanks to its potent mix of ingredients. Containing vitamin C, mushroom extract and hyaluronic filling spheres, the formula helps to visibly smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles whilst maintaining moisture levels.
Infused with the brand’s Perfectionist serum technology, this Estée Lauder foundation provides transformative results. Loved for its brightening and perfecting qualities, the foundation assists with enhancing your natural glow whilst minimising the appearance of imperfections.
The Armani My Armani to Go Cushion Foundation is your quick-fix, instantaneous answer to a youthful complexion. Its cushiony nature helps to hide away impurities without exaggerating the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, providing a luxurious texture that tackles uneven tones and textures.
Maintaining youthful skin starts with treating it to an antioxidant-rich cocktail, which is exactly what this foundation contains. Matrixyl 3000 and marine-based emollients work in synergy with one another to bring out the best in your skin, keeping it hydrated and firm. This is then teamed with the brand’s paraben-free formula which helps to keep skin looking and feeling its absolute best whilst restoring that much-needed moisture.
Harnessing the power of intelligent technologies and rejuvenating ingredients, this By Terry foundation works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines whilst also supporting the skin from lack of elasticity. Its high pigment formula blends easily in to provide a flawless finish that boasts an airbrushed look.
Combining two power products in one, the Clinique Beyond Perfecting Foundation and Concealer provides a full coverage finish with a natural-looking texture. Its high-pigment formula instantly covers up dark circles, age spots and other skin concerns to create a flawless visage.
Cover up the likes of age spots and dark circles with the Darphin Melaperfect Anti-Dark Spots Correcting Foundation. Pluriocolour mineral microspheres and trametes extract actively work to conceal existing marks, allowing you to feel at your most confident all day long.
This wallet-friendly foundation is a must-have for everyday wear. Its sheer texture adds a healthy-looking, natural glow that illuminates your complexion for that ‘lit from within’ look. We love its inclusion of SPF20, helping to keep your visage fully protected from further sun damage.
Filled to the brim with light-reflecting properties, this foundation has revolutionised the way you wear foundation. The unique formula contains an active ingredient called polysilikon11, which works to impart a touchably-soft satin finish that mimics a tighter appearance. Gold particles also provide a soft-focus finish to blur out the appearance of fine lines, making it your new favourite foundation.
When a foundation contains skin care properties within its formula, you know you're onto a good'en. Helping to future-proof your skin, this foundation utilises advanced technologies used within anti-ageing skin care remedies to help beautify and protect your skin in the long run.
Get the most out of your foundation by pairing it with a skin-loving moisturiser. To find the perfect moisturiser for mature skin, check out our extensive guide, here at Cosmetify.
