Although we hear a great deal about how to care for normal, sensitive and combination skin types, nurturing mature skin is equally as important, especially since the American Academy of Dermatology says that this skin type requires the right type of anti-aging skincare essentials to brighten and hydrate the skin.

With this in mind, makeup artist Alex Rutkay advises selecting foundations with caution and to consider skin texture and coverage in order to find the best product match possible.

“When choosing the right foundation for mature skin, first consider the texture of the skin, how oily or dry it is, and how much coverage you’re seeking in a product,” Rutkay tells FabFitFun. “Someone who doesn’t have a lot of textural issues (but has oily skin) may want to pick a matte finish foundation, while mature skin with a lot of textural issues and dryness may want to consider a BB or CC cream.”

Rutkay also recommends selecting tinted and dewy foundations as she explains that products with built-in luminescence helps the skin looking more youthful and hydrated. But no matter what kind of foundation you choose, she says that, beyond finding the perfect foundation, it’s important to prioritize skin care first.

Thanks to Rutkay’s helpful insight, we’re sharing the best foundations for mature skin types. From lightweight illuminating foundation to SPF-infused CC cream, these products will leave your skin looking fresh and radiant with each use.
