Best foundation for aging 50 year old beginning to wrinkle skin

I use BE and am beginning to wonder if there is something better to hide the wrinkles.

I have several recommendations:
Bobbi Brown Luminous (my skin is dry and this is fairly moisturizing)
Lauren Hutton Aqua Elements Gel Foundation
Both do not accentuate lines or wrinkles. They are very beautiful and give a natural finish.

HSN has Lauren Hutton and the kits are usually very good values. You can also buy directly from her web site - laurenhuttondotcom.

Estee Lauder Futurist foundation is made just for you! I use it and love it.

I have finally found a liquid makeup that I love. I am 53 and it does not settle into fine lines, gives me coverage and moisture. It has a very pretty finish. It is the NuSkin liquid foundation. They have a web site site. It is also very reasonably priced, I think it is around $28.00 a bottle, and a little goes a long way.

I'm 59.
I use Mally's primer (pink color in a jar) and Prescriptives "Photochrome" Light Adjusting Compact Makeup SPF 15.
Using them together seems to have somewhat of an airbrush effect on my lines and it looks like bare skin ([u]good[/u] bare skin) to me. HTH.

Hi thrash,
I just discovered Revlon Age Defying Spa Foundation. I like the
way it feels and the wrinkles seem softened somehow. Still there
for sure, but look less noticeable.
It wears fairly well (not Colorstay performance) but looks good on
off days and has a nice SPF. Kind of one stop shopping for older
skin.
I don't like the built in brush - I removed it with pliers!

I am going to be 77 on Friday and have very good skin. I haven't worn foundation for about 20 years. I don't think you can hide wrinkles. I just use hydrating moisturizer, cream blush and lipstick. I never let powder touch my face as It accentuates the lines. When I first went without makeup, I found it hard to get used to. Now I think my
skin looks better without it. Just my opinion.

I really like the bobbi brown tinted moisturizer, also like the Lauren Hutton face disk. When you go to the Macy's or Nordstrom, I would ask for a sample, that way you can see what it looks like in natural day light and how it feels on your skin. Bobbi has some great foundations, also you includes a primer in her moisturizers.

I am 65 have nice skin, and few wrinkles. However, I love The Perricone no foundation and use the tinted moisturizer under.
Great natural look. I had used futurist, but it felt too heavy.

I was having the same issue... I thought BE accentuated the lines under my eyes. I have switched to Smashbox Tinted Moisturizer with a bit of Halo through the t-zone. Doesn't cover my lines but they are certainly less noticeable.

Well I've never used foundation before but judging by how wonderful the Maybelline Age Rewind concealer/highlighter is, I would give the Age Rewind foundation a try if I were you. Way more affordable and works like a dream (at least the concealer does and this is the first concealer I've ever used that I absolutely love). I'm 47. It doesn't settle in fine lines and it covers great, lightweight (can't even feel that you're wearing anything).

I am 59 and I like BB cream foundation. Sometimes I'll use a light dusting of BE Mineral Veil over it.

Lauren Hutton Aqua Elements if you like a mineral makeup
Dior Airspray Foundation - my all time favorite for fall and winter.
