Choosing the right foundation is tricky at the best of times. You’ve got to nail the texture and finish—whether matte or glowy—that suits your skin. On top of that, picking the right shade can make or break your whole look. And guess what? It only gets harder with age. Foundations that once worked wonders might start accentuating wrinkles. So, we turned to Fred Marin, the celebrity makeup artist for the beautiful Virginie Efira. He recently shared his top three foundations for mature skin on his Instagram. Let’s dive in!

Lancôme Teint Miracle: The Glow Getter

This foundation is a real revelation for those who want radiant skin and a natural glow,” says Marin. Lancôme’s Teint Miracle offers a luminous finish that has beauty addicts swooning. Its formula is enriched with hyaluronic acid, vegetable glycerin, and Moringa extracts. All this means 18 hours of hydration and a healthy glow. Marin calls it a perfect hybrid of skincare and makeup.

Charlotte Tilbury’s Beautiful Skin Foundation: The Second Skin Wonder

Charlotte Tilbury keeps wowing us with her complexion products, and her Beautiful Skin Foundation is no exception. “It promises a ‘second skin’ glow thanks to its lightness and ability to subtly correct while providing a natural glow,” Marin shares. This foundation is a godsend for mature skin. It hydrates, evens out the complexion, plumps and smooths, and even fades brown spots over time.

Hermès Plein Air Complexion Balm: The Luxury Veil

“This light formula is ideal for those seeking a natural, long-lasting finish,” says Marin. Especially noteworthy for its light and invisible finish, Hermès Plein Air might not be as famous, but it deserves love—especially from women over 50. This complexion balm offers a luminous finish that unifies and enhances the skin naturally. It also hydrates and protects mature skin with SPF 30. It’s a splurge but worth every penny.
