Makeup Tip: Foundation Exaggerates your Fine Lines?

Instead of creating and even the tone of your skin, some foundation can actually emphasize fine lines by sinking the line creases, especially when you smile, speak or frown.

To solve this problem, choose moisturizing and illuminating liquid foundations. There are also special anti-aging foundations available that help to smooth and firm skin. Such products contain silicones or special waxes that “fill in” lines and wrinkles and just smooth them out. Check out Helen Rubinstein Face Sculptor Make-up, Chanel Lift Lumiere Firming and Smoothing Liquid Makeup and Instant Smooth Foundation by Clarins

You may also want to use silicone based makeup primers under your foundation such as, Top Secrets by YSL, Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, Sephora make up primer, Bare Escentuals bareVitamins Prime Time

Another way to minimize appearance of fine is to apply a wrinkle filler before you apply your foundation. Check out Good Skin Labs Tri-Aktiline Instant Deep Wrinkle Filler, Olay Wrinkle Fill and Seal and Dior Capture R 60/80 Filler

I totally agree. I always thought my foundation highlighted wrinkles. I'm glad I'm not alone in observing this. Wrinkle filler is a great idea!

foundation never suits me - thats what i have observed thanks to this post i can use wrinkle filler... i came across this Maybelline Whitestay UV compact... after i have used that never felt need for foundation do you think it can replace wrinkle filler

@shreya Thanks for comment! no, i don't think so. As I understand Maybelline Whitestay UV is a compact powder. Powder will never fill in wrinkles...
