They say that youth is wasted on the young, and while that adage is most certainly true, it's also worth noting that the plump, youthful skin that goes with it is perhaps not always appreciated. And yes, aging is a privilege, but who doesn't want a little help every now and again when it comes to adding a little spry vitality to one's appearance?

The easiest way to achieve that: a really ace foundation or complexion product. The right formulation can blur lines, smooth texture, plump dehydrated skin—even minimize the appearance of large pores. From radiance inducing tints, to full-coverage creams, and even a few formulations with active skincare ingredients, see here the best foundations for women over 40.
