Now that the wrinkles are getting started, I find that my old (liquid) foundation just doesn't look good anymore. It seems to make the wrinkles look worse. Plus, I have the very light peach fuzz starting to appear around my jawline and slightly upward. This really makes the foundation look funny -- it sort of catches in the hairs and almost looks matted.

Any suggestions from those who have been there/done that?

I think tinted moisturizers are definitely the way to go. I top mine off with Bare Minerals foundation powder - just remember to use it very sparingly and really swirl it in or it, too will be noticeable. Good luck!

Nope. I need something to even out my complexion.

My favorite is Giorgio Armani's Luminous Silk but it's pretty pricey. I'm using Clinique's Supermoisture makeup right now and I really like it. Pretty good coverage if you need it but not too slick. I also like Revlon's Age Defying foundation. I cannot use foundations like Bare Essentuals anymore. I'm 51 and even though I have pretty good skin the powder just settles in the lines and makes me look older. Have you tried a foundation primer? I really like Smashbox and Clarin's Instant Light.

I've looked but not found these tinted moisturizers; where are you finding them? Is that what they are called?

I am able to find Bobbi Brown products at Nordstrom. What I use is called Extra SPF 25 Tinted Moisturizing Balm. I'm sure if you go to her website you can find where to find her products....they aren't inexpensive but they do last quite awhile....

Get you face waxed or do it yourself at home. It will make all make-up easier.

Here are some tinted moisturizers:

I just started using a primer with silicone (I think that's what it has) and then using whatever foundation I might need. The primer makes all the difference in the world---fills in wrinkles, makes the face seem really smooth and hairless. As for foundation, I use truematch and it blends seamlessly. But I really think any foundation works better if you use the primer first.

Incidentally, I don't wax at all anymore--not even my brows. I've found that my skin is too delicate and waxing a little too rough, especially around the delicate eye area.
