What is a good foundation makeup to soften lines?

Most liquid foundation makes the lines more visible.


Answer by  Milette (1105)

A primer, usually in silicone form, is always good to use before applying your foundation. Follow it up with a compact foundation (combination of cream and powder).

Bare Minerals and Physicians Formula Mineral makeup both cover lines. Since they are not liquid makeup, they do not sink into the lines, but instead sit on top of the skin and make the skin look more firm.

I would suggest more importantly to use a foundation primer under your liquid foundation. This will minimize pores and fine lines. A good one to try is Smashbox Photofinish, which has a gel consistency. A cheaper alternative is Rimmel Fix & Perfect (about $7 at the drugstore), which has a consistency like a moisturizer.

A lot of the time I've heard people use mineral powders because it doesn't sink into the fine lines and wrinkles as much as liquid foundation.

Yes, most liquid foundations are too heavy and will settle into lines. Use a mineral powdered foundation (like Bare Escentuals) which does not accentuate lines or large pores.

Use a silicone based moisturizer, followed by a dusting of mineral makeup made with mica, to reflect the light away from shadows in the lines.

I use cover girl powder, get the foundation that is good for your skin type. Powder makeup for oily skin and liquid makeup for dry skin.

Liquid sinks into lines, so avoid it. Choose compact or mousse foundations for a softer look. Apply moisturizer first, then foundation. Follow with loose powder and you should be set!

While I am sure that there is some make-up that will help with that. A good tip would be to use a good moisturizer for taking care of just that.

I have yet to find one that actually works. Most products claim to do so but do not measure up. Usually after a couple of hours, the product breaks down.
