Hi everyone

I never had to wear makeup when I was younger..never broke out and had very clear even skin tone.

I was a beach bum sad to say now.

When I reach my early 40's mainly mid 40's my skin took a turn for the worst !!

I had skin cancer (Squamous) 2 years ago all on my face. I went to a Top plastic surgeon here in NYC who is also a Top Skin cancer doc. WEll the scars are not noticeable at all except for the one's on my forehead and chin which aren't bad at all. The ones under both eyes (Cheekbones) really aren't noticeable as he made them so thin and cut it where it went with the natural aging.

Well anyway I now have dry skin( Not peely at all ) and age spots from all them years at the beach.

I have tried many foundations the last 2 years and they all are dry on my skin and show the wrinkles around my mouth and chin. (That's where I aged ) I don't have crows feet or bags at all and never breakout..

I tried powder but it looks really bad on me ..too dry looking.

I can't find a foundation that is oil base.

Please can someone name some that are oil base .I don't care what it cost.I don't know much when it comes to makeup as I never wore it when younger unless I had to go somewhere and even then someone else did it for me.

Thanks so much Smile

I found this
"Other brands who do good oil-based foundations are MAC (Hyper Real foundation), NARS (Balanced Foundation) or Clinique also do good oil based foundations. Laura Mercier Flawless Face Moisturizing Foundation"

Have you tried Chanel's Vitalumiere? It's very rich and leaves a nice dewy finish.

I would also look into La Prairie (they have 2 very good foundations for dry skin), and Cle de Peau.

Best of luck,
Lucy.

Trish McEvoy Even Skin foundation comes in two versions, one which has oil in it (the other is silicon based). The former lasts a lot longer.

Have you thought about using a primer between your moisturiser and your make up? Again Trish McEvoy does a good one (well two actually, one for dryer skins and one which is oil free).

You should be able to get samples of some foundations before you splash out. TM are quite good for samples but so is Estee Lauder, they do lots of lovely foundations and Prescriptives which are part of the group have a large range. They also do a custom foundation, it's not just colour, you could have more oil or moisture for example.

If cost is not an issue AND you live in NYC... go to Saks and try SK-II Airtouch foundation. It is fantastic stuff.

It is not oil-based, it is silicone based. But if I read your question correctly what you are looking for is a foundation that will not settle in wrinkles or accentuate dry spots. The SK-II will give you a beautiful, smooth 'airbrush' finish and will not settle into wrinkles. It is also quick and easy to apply, you just mist it on.

If you have a lot of very dark areas the SA may suggest that you use the Signs foundation first to cover up, then use Airtouch over that. I personally do not need to do this (and I have acne scars), I use Cle de Peau concealer then Airtouch and get a beautiful finish.

Anyway, especially because you are located in NYC and have access to the SK-II counter in person, try it out. I think you'll be well pleased. Here is a thread with some more reviews (mine is one):

Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk Foundation and Hydra Glow are wonderful!! Also you might try Laura Mercier or Bobbi Brown, I believe each has a moistuizing/hydrating foundation. Hope you find something!!! Very Happy

Bluerain,

If you would like to get samples of GA LSF or the Hydraglow call the GA Boutique in the Bellagio Hotel. Ask for Cindy, she's great at sending samples!! Smile
