Foundation tips for mature women
Finding a foundation that provides flawless coverage and lasts the day can be a pretty difficult thing. When you’re young you’re up against issues of oiliness, battling base that slides off your face midway through the day. Then, as you age and your skin becomes more prone to dryness, the problem shifts to finding a foundation that doesn’t cake, flake or settle into fine lines.
So what’s the secret to achieving that flawless, youthful-looking foundation finish when you have mature skin?
Firstly, you need to prep your skin with a serum. This will not only work to hydrate your skin and ensure that your foundation doesn’t flake, but if you choose one that’s specifically designed for more mature skin, you’ll be simultaneously treating your anti-ageing concerns, too. For an extra powerful pre-foundation age fighting solution, apply Lancôme Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate in conjunction with Lancôme Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector. Together, they’ll help hydrate, refine and even out your skin tone, as well as minimise fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of enlarged pores and assist your skin’s repair process.
Next, opt for a treatment foundation. As you age, you’ll need more from your foundation than plain and simple coverage. Treatment foundations are formulated with hardworking ingredients that help to correct skin issues, such as discolouration, dark spots, and dark circles, as well as provide smooth, flawless coverage. Plus, given they’re targeting mature skin they’re usually more hydrating, too, so are less likely to settle into and exacerbate any fine lines or wrinkles. Lancôme Teint Visionnaire is one such foundation that ticks all the right boxes. Combining the advanced technology of Visionnaire Advanced Skin Corrector with the brand’s winning foundation formulation, it will leave provide long-lasting, natural looking coverage that leaves your skin looking smooth, even-toned and more youthful.
Finally, avoid heavy setting powders. These are great to use when you’re younger and you’re trying to combat an afternoon oil slick, but can leave maturing skin looking crepey and dry. If you’re using the fabulous products mentioned above your skin should be well hydrated and your foundation long lasting, so there’s really no reason to have to apply powders over the top.
