The bottom line

When choosing a foundation to suit your needs, there are three things you should keep in mind. First, choose a cream or liquid formula that contains nourishing ingredients (think: Hyaluronic Acid) and protective filters like SPF. These foundations are great for protecting your skin and making it feel smoother.

Remember to consider the texture: you want a lighter foundation with a thinner texture. This will conceal any imperfections, such as wrinkles and fine lines, and make them invisible. Anything heavier will feel cakey and sit in your pores and lines.

A foundation with a radiant, luminous finish is better than one that has a matte finish. A matte foundation can be drying and can cause skin problems for mature skin. Radiant finishes on the other hand will give your skin a natural glow that makes it appear plump and healthy.
