Once we've wrapped our heads around that we can look at products that work for mature women. You see, not all foundations work for every skin type or age. Most of us know that of course. We're aware our skin is changing as we age. But the problem is we're unsure of what does work once we reach a certain age.
This is where Shawnelle comes in.
She says that those of us who are mature, and have, say, fine lines or wrinkles we'd like to smooth out, should opt for foundations that provide buildable coverage. Buildable coverage means foundation that you can apply lightly at first and then, add more if you feel you need it.
It's foundation you can layer if you will.
Shawnelle says that Jane favours the HD varieties. That's High Definition for the uninitiated.
In particular she likes Chantecaille Future Skin, $119, an oil-free gel foundation that delivers a blend-able, medium coverage and a radiant natural finish. She also likes Makeup Forever Ultra HD Foundation Stick, $67, and is a fan of IT Cosmetics too, says Shawnelle.
And damn - Jane looks amazing and at all times, so clearly these are good options for grown-up women.
Aside from foundation choices, Shawnelle has one other hard and fast rule that she'd like us all to embrace. And that is always, always, always moisturise your skin before applying makeup - no matter which one you eventually opt for. This will make the world of difference, says Shawnelle.
"To achieve a seamless application, it is paramount to start with hydrated, plumped and lifted skin so that there won’t be as many fine lines to catch on or navigate," she told the beauty site New Beauty.
So there you have it. It's that simple. Hydrate deeply and then, choose your foundation wisely and you will look Jane Fonda-level lovely. Guaranteed.
