The Estée Lauder Perfectionist Youth-Infusing Serum Makeup SPF 25 ($52) packs an instantaneous brightening and hydrating punch, though because the formula is oil-free, it still feels lightweight on skin (despite it's medium to full coverage finish). Bonus points for the addition of oh-so important SPF.
You can actually see how the skincare and makeup worlds blend together in the CoverGirl + Olay Simply Ageless Foundation ($11); the white swirl is an anti-aging serum. It helps the foundation hover seamlessly on skin, without settling into fine lines.
There's good reason why the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation ($44) has somewhat of a cult-like following. Rich in antioxidants, vitamin C, and skin-plumping hyaluronic acid, it both instantly makes skin appear smooth and glowing, and minimizes the look of imperfections over time. Also nice: It comes in a wide array of 20 shades with varying undertones.
Use the L'Oréal Paris Visible Lift Serum Absolute Advanced Age-Reversing Makeup ($15) daily for just four weeks to improve everything from skin tone to texture. But if you need instant gratification, don't worry, it offers that, too.
Dewy and smooth? Sign us up. True to its name, the Maybelline New York Fit Me Dewy & Smooth Foundation ($8) hydrates and smooths skin texture, stat, leaving behind the most gorgeous glowing finish (with no pores in sight). It also comes in 24 shades, the most of any foundations in this round-up.
The name says it all. It Cosmetics Bye Bye Lines Foundation ($38) is an anti-aging base that touts a laundry list of youth-boosting ingredients. We're talking peptides, collagen, and hylauronic acid, as well as a special blurring technology that makes pores and wrinkles virtually undetectable.
Not only does the Revlon Age Defying 3X Foundation ($16) hydrate like a moisturizer and prep like a primer, it also acts as a smoothing serum and delivers protective SPF 20, too. Consider it your one-stop-shop for complexion perfection.
For long days, reach for the Lancôme Renergie Lift Makeup Foundation ($48). The featherweight, fluid foundation blurs away pores and wrinkles for up to 12 hours, while leaving skin extra soft, thanks to the addition of vitamin E.
Those who prefer lighter coverage will appreciate that the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Aging Perfector ($9) is more akin to a tinted moisturizer than a full-on foundation. But don't worry, it offers enough coverage to hide what you want hidden, and is also infused with retinol, a gold-standard anti-ager and proven wrinkle-fighter.
