MY TOP 6 FOUNDATIONS FOR FLAWLESS SKIN OVER 45
Valentino Very Valentino Foundation || [Shade: MA 2] This foundation is one of my newer foundations but it has quickly risen to the top of the list as my favorite. Its creamy and buildable and what I love most is the tone of the shades. They are very flattering! I love that its a thin formula and semi matte. If you like a “yummy” look to your skin, this foundation provides that for you!
Estée Lauder Double Wear Foundation || [Shade: Rattan] Double Wear is my most worn and longest loved foundation. I have just about every light to medium shade that they make. If you have oily skin this is the foundation for you! If you apply it with a sponge you will get medium coverage and if you use a brush you can get full coverage. I love this foundation in the summer when I need my makeup to last all day! You can watch me use Double Wear in this video!
YSL ALL HOURS FOUNDATION || [Shade: MN 7] This is another foundation that provides a gorgeous matte flawless full coverage . I love this for summer because of the high SPF and wearability. I haven’t tested the 24 hour wear but it does last through high humidity at the beach! I go more in depth about why I love it in this video!
HOURGLASS AMBIENT SOFT GLOW FOUNDATION || [Shade: 8] This new Hourglass foundation is incredible! I love the way it photographs and makes your skin look like you have on a real life filter! It does have a soft glow and is buildable so you can achieve medium to full coverage. The spheres in the formula provide a blurring effect so its a great foundation for anyone over 45 with fine lines! You can see me using it in my Best of Beauty 2022 video here.
DOLCE & GABBANA VELVETSKIN FOUNDATION || [Shade: 330 Almond] I remember buying Dolce & Gabbana years ago in the states and then I think they pulled it from the shelves and you could only purchase it in the UK. I found it recently at Harrods and I am so glad I did! Its a medium coverage foundation that provides a flawless matte finish. LIke the Hourglass it also has blurring spheres for a filter effect on the skin. I have enjoyed this foundation and I’m glad I rediscovered the brand!
ANASTASIA LUMINOUS FOUNDATION || [Shade: 315N] The Anastasia Luminous Foundation is one of my go to foundations when I want a long wearing medium weightless coverage. Like the other foundations listed it has a blurring effect which is something you should look for if you are over 45. The blurring spheres provide a filter effect and fill any fine lines to provide a more flawless appearance to the skin. I love this foundation on days I need to add luminosity to my skin if it is looking dull!
