The right one may be your best friend. “No foundation is better than bad foundation, but good foundation is best. Solution; Use a foundation that is heavy enough to smooth out your complexion . Drier skin is common as you age, so you may be happier with a liquid or cream foundation, or even a tinted moisturizer, instead of a powder foundation which can make your skin look flaky.

Adhering too literally to that old adage about putting blush on the apples of your cheeks. The clown-like rounds of makeup that can result flatter no one. Another mistake includes brushing on blush too far below the cheekbone, which visually pulls down the face, making you look jowly.
