As the skin begins to mature, foundation tends to require a lot more extra work for it to apply flawlessly. There are times that a mineral foundation that used to be your holy grail 10 years ago no longer works on your skin at 50. Good thing, we consulted beauty experts to guide you out with easy tips and tricks on applying your mineral foundation gorgeously.
Indulge your skin in superb hydration.
According to Dr. Farid Mostamand, founder of Ageless Derma and author of Ageless Skin Obsession, “Our skin tends to become dry and more sensitive, especially in women going through menopause. Left unattended, dry skin can become itchy, irritated, and red.” Applying foundation on dehydrated skin would make your wrinkles and rough patches a lot more noticeable.
Try using a heavy duty moisture cream or a face mask at night for you to wake up to plumper skin. When your skin is properly hydrated, working with your mineral foundation should be flawless and effortless.
Invest in a great hydrating and anti-aging primer.
Try to stay away from primers that are too drying and mattifying. Mattifying primers are very common in the beauty market today but many of them are quite drying. If you are in your 50s, this is the best time to look for top quality mineral primers that are specifically formulated for mature skin. Do not let the price tag worry you.
Premium brands shouldn’t always be expensive. The key is to find brands that cut the middleman in order to get the same high quality product for a much lesser cost.
Use the right mineral foundation applicator.
The right makeup brush plays an important role in mineral foundation application. If you are dealing with problems common to mature skin like wrinkles, fine lines and dark spots, use a brush that does not let the foundation sit on top. A dense buffing brush or a beauty sponge is ideal when it comes to foundation application for mature skin.
