Best Foundations for Mature Skin

It’s amazing how often people focus on the colour of their foundation rather than their skin’s needs. You can find an exact colour match for your skin tone, but if you’re using the wrong type of colour product, you’ll be disappointed with the results. These are some of the best foundations for mature skin.

Our skin changes a lot over the year. Not only in condition but in tone and texture, too. As our skin needs change, we should reassess our skincare and makeup products to suit, too. Of course, finding the perfect colour match is always important when it comes to makeup, but using a product formulated specifically for older skin can be a good idea, too. In general, when you’re looking for the best foundations for mature skin, it’s worth considering products that offer extra skincare benefits such as moisturising colours and SPFs.

Here, I round up a few of the best foundations to suit mature skin…

By Terry Éclat Opulent
Containing hyaluronic acid, this anti-ageing foundation helps to disguise and fight fine lines and wrinkles to give a smoother complexion. With moisturising properties, it’s a good choice for mature skin, which tends to be on the dryer side.

Perricone MD No Foundation Foundation
If you want a nourishing skincare-based foundation to give a light dewy coverage, this is the right choice for you. It can be built to offer a more even, complete coverage, and it offers SPF30 protection, too.

Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer
Available in 16 diverse shades, you’ll find your perfect match with this rich, creamy skin colour from Kevyn Aucoin. Use mixed with your usual moisturiser if you want a lighter coverage.

Max Factor Ageless Elixir Miracle Foundation
A great foundation for mature skin, this is a combined serum and face colour, with built-in SPF15.

Estee Lauder Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Makeup SPF 25
If you want to moisturise your skin without clogging pores, this Estee Lauder oil-free foundation is a good option to trial. Again with a serum-foundation crossover that’s great for mature skin, this foundation is infused with age-defying Perfectionist serum technology.
