How long have you had the current BM product you're using? Is there a chance that it's old and you may need to repurchase?

Personally my mom & I love pür minerals. I didn't really want to try it but the lady at the counter insisted and my mom loves it as well.

I personally have more acne prone/oily skin and it keeps me from looking like a grease ball.

My mom has combination oily/dry skin. Some areas are dry while others oilier.

Does your skin change with the seasons? You might need to up the amount of moisturizer you are using, or move to a creamy solution.

As we age our skin gets drier. I'd start with a thicker facial moisturizer.

Ive been a makeup artist in the film industry for 15 years and honestly bare minerals is not a great product for older skins ( im 45) It can be drying as well as not provide much coverage. Agree with above post as to a heavier facial moisturizer. a good all around not terribly expensive one is the Olay 7X. have you looked into a BB cream? they have everything built in. sunscreen moisture and color for evenness. just my two cents

I am in my early 60's and do not use powder for the reasons you have stated. I have normal skin - not dry or oily and I use Givenchy Photo Perfection fluid foundation which I love - it is really a flawless, light-weight foundation that is perfect for normal skin.

I don't want a lot of moisturizer on my skin during the day (but then I don't have dry skin) - I use a lightweight daytime moisturizer by ROC and that is it.

I also wonder if perhaps your skin care regimen needs might have changed? I have found that as I age, I need to change-out my skin care products more often - exfoliating is very important as we age along with really good skincare habits, drinking lots of water and a whole foods diet - cut out the sugar and junk food - it really does make a difference in the way our skin looks and feels.

The good thing about mineral type makeups is they diffuse fine lines without having to throw on tons of stuff because they are a little reflective.

The best news is there are liquid foundations or tinted moisturizers that are mineral based, so you get the diffusion without the drying powder. I love Tarte's tinted moisturizer. I can put it on lightly, and it evens out my skin beautifully. I don't need much coverage.

I am 64 and pretty much go without any foundation or powder these days. On the rare occasions I use it, I have found L'oreal products much lighter and easier on the skin than those heavier mineral powders. The liquid L'oreal I love is TrueMatch. It blends beautifully, almost like a tinted moisturizer yet is it not oily.

I am in my upper 40's. I suggest you try "Invisible Fluid Makeup" by Estee Lauder. It is approximately $35 dollars, non drying and non flaking.

I don't like the powders, never have.

They advertise something on the telly here and you need a base, the foundation, then a frikkn "veil" whatever that is.

I want my foundation to go on thick and stay there thanks, one application.

For this reason I do not use mineral powder...it's drying and I really just don't like it. I don't have an hour to layer the crap up to the point it does the job it's supposed to do.

At the moment I am using Rimmel matt foundation, cheap as chips, great coverage, suits my skin.

I used to use powdered mineral makeup but also found it to be too drying as I got older. Currently I use Mineral Fusion BB cream. It's like a tinted liquid moisturizer. I really like it. Mineral Fusion | Beauty Balms
