serasvictorianolifequeen asked: Hello I love your blog! My mom is trying to find a good foundation that would cover her large pores and fine lines. I would really appreciate it if you would help thank you. :)

Thank you so much! <3

For years I’ve been trying to help my mother find makeup that works with her maturing skin, so I feel as though I should be able to help you, not just from basic knowledge, but from personal experience as well!

Heavy foundation will actually accentuate imperfections in the skin like little wrinkles and open pores, because it settles in them and leaves the hole or line more exposed.  Especially throughout the day, you might find that thicker makeup starts to show more and more of the very things you’re trying to cover (even if your makeup looks flawless when you first apply it).  I have found that this is really inconvenient since most foundations designed for mature skin are rather thick and creamy!  

One thing that WILL be a miracle product for fine lines, large pores, and even full-blown wrinkles in the skin, is primer.  Get a silicone-based primer and apply a small amount over moisturizer (key for all skin types and ages!!) and underneath makeup.  Silicone fills in these imperfections and allows makeup to glide over top flawlessly!  Most primers will contain silicone, check the ingredients list to get an idea of how much is actually in it (any thing ending in -one or -ane will be silicone, you can guesstimate the amount by how high or low it is listed in the list!)  A few of my favorite primers that are high in silicone -

Monistat Soothing Care Gel - $4

This isn’t designed to be a foundation primer, but it works incredibly well as one and is perfectly safe to use on your face.  It contains a high level of silicone and will make your face look very smooth.

L’Oreal Studio Secrets Magic Perfecting Base - $6

This affordable primer will last you a very long time.  The texture is a whipped mousse, and it slides onto your face effortlessly.

image

Benefit POREfessional - $30

This is a tinted primer that also mattefies the face.

Now for the actual concealment - as I said earlier, skip on the heavy, thick foundations and opt instead for something lighter, like a tinted moisturizer or BB cream (which are essentially the same thing).  These help even out the skin tone without smothering and weighing down the skin.  On areas that need extra coverage, use a concealer over top!  If you much prefer a real foundation, pick one with a light amount of coverage and moisturizing formula.

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector - $12

L’Oreal Youth Code BB Cream - $11

Neutrogena Healthy Skin - $10

I hope this helps you and your mom!  Thanks for being a fan!
