Foundation isn’t just foundation. Whether you’re in the market for a luxe pick or the best drugstore foundation for mature skin, there are all different kinds of formulas to suit the various skin types out there—dry skin, oily skin, and of course, aging skin.
As you get older, your beauty routine evolves. Over the years skin goes through hormonal changes and is exposed to all kinds of external irritants—think lower collagen production, UV rays from the sun, environmental pollution—that can cause wrinkles and sagging, thereby impacting the type of products and formulas you use. “Skin, particularly the thin skin on your face, also gets drier and is more prone to dark spots too,” says celebrity makeup artist Sabrina Bedrani, who counts Michelle Yeoh and Sandra Bullock among her clients.
