The formula is developed to provide a light to medium coverage that’s buildable, lasts all day and infused with ‘powerful phytonutrients’ which are plant-derived nutrients, so your left with a skin that feels natural, fresh and flawless.

It’s formulated to feel light as a feather and allow your skin to breathe instead of suffocate.

The antioxidants and ‘70% certified organic ingredients’ make it a great product to apply on mature skin as they help the skin repair itself, especially if it’s missing any important nutrients and some stimulate collagen production which is useful for a youthful appearance.

The consistency is similar to a moisturizer, making it suitable for older skins as it’s less likely to settle in the lines.

100% pure fruit pigmented powder foundation

If you have a slightly oily skin as well as mature skin then 100% pure’s powder may be to your liking as it’s lightweight which definitely means it won’t cause creases and minimizes pores, which I know can be a bigger problem for the mature skin who also have oily skin.The best foundations for aging skin

The finish is matte with the ability to provide medium coverage and easily buildable to full.

The mature skin can make use of this powder as it’s formulated with anti-ageing, mineral and fragrance free ingredients which can often irritate the delicate skin.

Milk makeup blur liquid matte

The matte foundation is formulated silicone free to help blur and smooth, ‘without triggering’ breakouts.

It has a featherweight texture yet surprisingly offers the coverage of a heavier foundation without the cakiness. Cool right?

Oh and the bottle is clever too as product is only dispensed when squeezed. So no wasting! It’s also free from parabens, phthalates, sulfates and other nasties.

As you can tell by the name this milk foundation is great for blurring any pores and fine lines so obviously ideal for mature skin.

The hyaluronic acid helps plump the skin which mature skin are in need of.

    Hi, there. Thank you for this helpful and informative article. I was looking to buy a gift for my mother, and these foundations for aging women are a lovely gift idea. I like that all of them. In particular, I most like Saphho’s essential liquid foundation because it gives a shiny and beautiful look to the skin and nourishes it. Also, the high percentage of certified organic ingredients, I think, make it a great product to use.  As well, the Pacifica multimineral cream, which is all in one for the illuminating primer, perfect finish, and shade matching technology, is good, too.

    I am in my early sixties, and although I do not often wear foundation, I am finding increasingly that I have uneven skin color and patches that I would like to conceal and cover when I go out. I guess it might be called hyper pigmentation, but not sure. So it is great to find this review on the best foundation for aging skin.

    You have listed here several brands that I am not familiar with, so I will check it out to see which one best fits my skin and needs.
