Default make-up help

New to WAHM, and I'm not sure where to post this question. I was wondering what is the best kind of foundation for a lady of 48 to use, powder or liquid? My problem area's are under my eyes, otherwise I really don't have any skin problems yet. I really like BE but it seems to make my face look dry, but so do some liquid foundations so I'm at a loss!!! Thanks for any tips!

Welcome to the forum. The best place to put this question would be below in the cosmetics and skincare folder. Alot of gals there that can give you an answer for sure. HTH

When you have drier skin, you want to stay away from the formulas that say oil free. Many of us have skin that becomes drier as we get older. I know that I am. I have to go with ones that are formulated for dry skin not when it comes to liquid. I am a big fan of Estee Lauder Resilience Lift Foundation.

If you want to go with a powder, I would suggest Bare Minerals powder. It is natural, light weight, and actually good for your skin.

The key to all foundations is to have a great skin care routine in place to make the makeup that you put on your face look even better. Hope this helps a bit.

agree w/Bare Minerals, its the only thing I wear. It's great for any age. Very light, very natural, the only makeup that doesn't irritate my skin.

Thanks for all the tips, I think I'll stay with my BE and try a different moisturizer. See if that helps any! Thanks again!

I also use moisturizer to keep my skin not to dry... I think better to use a brand that is trusted..
