I've tried all three of these products and they are quite impressive. Move over Ellen, Jackie and I love these products, too!

Makeup is supposed to be the finishing touch that gives us confidence, but here's what many women don't realize: the way you apply your makeup could be adding years to your appearance. Take foundation, for example. What's the best foundation over 50?

Foundation is a makeup must-have for most women. Wearing foundation is a great way to smooth out your skin tone and give you a flawless, airbrushed look...if you don't overdo it. Women in their 20s can get away with just about any product, but as we age, our skin demands more age specific cosmetics.

Reveal Your True Beauty

Many women make the mistake of layering on their foundation, but thick layers can create a mask-like effect. Even worse, heavy foundation also has a way of settling into – and magnifying – every tiny line and crevice on your face, not to mention the ones that aren't so tiny. That can add years to your appearance.

Another common mistake is using foundation that doesn't match your natural complexion. Applying a bronzy colored foundation to pale skin and stopping at chin level is not an attractive look. Always try to match your natural skin tone as closely as possible and use a cosmetic sponge to blend all the way down the neck and décolletage.

Anti-Aging and Makeup in One

We over 50-somethings want products that multi-task and some big companies are stepping up to the plate. The best foundation over 50 does double duty. These new products cover flaws and imperfections while at the same time including anti-aging ingredients.

Three New Age Appropriate Foundations

Maybelline [Link Removed] is a super-concentrated formula with Goji berry and collagen that tightens and improves skin elasticity. It has a patented Micro-Corrector Applicator that micro-fills and smooths imperfections on the skin's surface while SPF 18 sunscreen helps protect skin from sun damage. Seven years of clinical research proved that it doesn't just cover, but after eight weeks of use reduces imperfections without makeup on.

COVERGIRL [Link Removed] is the newest COVERGIRL + Olay creation where makeup meets skin care. This anti-aging liquid foundation also has clinical studies showing that continuous use helps reduce the appearance of discolorations, such as age spots, and helps improve skin tone over time.

COVERGIRL + Olay [Link Removed] is infused with Olay Regenerist Serum. This SPF 22 foundation stays suspended over fine lines and wrinkles and is clinically shown to offer significant improvement in skin condition in just four weeks. Customer Amylynn from Wimberley, Texas, raves about it on the company's Web site. "This is the best makeup...young or old. My daughter at at 48. It goes on smoothly...hides imperfections with flawless coverage. Would recommend to anyone of any age! Please don't change formula or colors...EVER!"
