A foundation that has skincare-savvy, anti-aging benefits – all the while making your complexion even and luminous. The beauty industry, which was traditionally divided into skincare on the one hand, and makeup on the other, is in the throes of a beauty revolution when it comes to the new breed of matte foundations. This iconic new generation of what are arguably the best matte foundations around, are packed with skin boosting ingredients that help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. In fact theses matte foundations, such as Teint Visionnaire or Rénergie Lift Makeup Foundation actually have anti-aging agents at the very heart of their formulas. The results? Beautiful skin with a youthful glow.

The key to flawless-looking skin starts with beauty basics, as every Parisian beauty aficionado knows. If you want to achieve that sought-after, smooth, even and youthful complexion that’s the ultimate beauty goal then nailing your base is essential. The best matte foundation to hide wrinkles and pores can only do its job if you prep first. Follow our expert Parisian beauty tips on how to choose the best matte foundation that looks gorgeously natural – and lasts all day!

Look for anti-aging skincare ingredients

The best matte foundations that will smooth away wrinkles and fine lines, as well as blurring pores so your skin looks visibly younger and smoother, have anti-aging ingredients at the heart of their formulas. Look for a foundation that includes perlite and silica, which are oil-absorbing ingredients, as well as pigments that maintain consistent pH levels with the skin, as these can sometimes be out of balance when your skin begins to age. We love Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation. This best-selling, 24-hour foundation is designed to give you a comfortably matte feel and to smooth away the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also has renowned staying power (thanks to its futuristic polymer technology), which means you won’t need to be constantly re-touching on the go. Not a fan of heavy foundations? Luckily Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation is very light on the skin, as the best matte foundations should be. Full coverage is no reason to not let your skin breathe!

Embrace a warm glow, smooth skin, and a healthy hint of color with Lancôme Absolue Cushion. It's ideal for skin that's starting to show signs of aging as the formula works to smooth away any fine lines and wrinkles. At the same time, this innovative cushion foundation boasts a range of luxurious shades, which blend into your natural skin tone. Comforting and long-lasting, the finish enhances and illuminates your complexion.

Choose the new breed of powder textures

Forget the old generation of powder foundations, the new wave of best matte foundations in powder form are full of skin-boosting, anti-aging ingredients as well as giving you a flawless look! Whether you treat foundation as the canvas on which to apply the rest of your makeup or are more of a fan of barefaced chic; the perfect base with just a hint of blush and a sweep of mascara perhaps – getting a gorgeous matte look is the ultimate beauty goal.

For a quintessentially laidback Parisian look with minimal effort – and maximum results, try Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Compact. It’s so easy to use, absorbs any shine and works best on clean, moisturized skin as part of your daily skincare routine to disguise fine lines and wrinkles for a youthful effect. Use Lancôme Rénergie Lift Multi-Action Light Day Cream, which glides on to smooth the surface of the skin, leaving it supple, lifted and firm, before you apply your powder foundation. The combination of moisturized, silky skin and the sebum-absorbing formula of Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Compact means your complexion is balanced, which gives you a youthful appearance, while disguising any fine lines or wrinkles.

Multi-product makeup

You’ve heard of multi-masking, right? The new trend for using different face masks on different sections of your face to respond to what each area needs. Well now it’s time to welcome multi-product makeup. This means layering the right products to respond to what your skin needs, and to create the most flawlessly, natural-looking base. The advantages are anti-aging benefits within your foundation, and when you layer your foundation with anti-aging creams, a beautifully youthful base is easy to achieve.

One of the best matte foundations for smoothing away wrinkles, especially if you want something lightweight, is the anti-wrinkle Teint Visionnaire or Teint Rénergie Lift R.A.R.E.™ Ultra-Lifting Firming Radiance SPF20. It gives a beautifully luminous finish that smooths away wrinkles and fine lines thanks to anti-aging amino acids and beauty oils that soothe and nourish the skin. For enviable, natural-looking skin, this incredible matte foundation works even better when you layer it with LancômeVisionnaire [1 Minute Blur], an instant Instagram filter for the face! Simply use your fingertips to dot on a small amount of the product onto any areas where you have fine lines, wrinkles or large pores before applying your foundation. It’s an easy skincare hack for up-grading your morning foundation routine with some anti-aging benefits! ding your morning foundation routine with some anti-aging benefits!
