The top 3 Lancôme foundations for mature skin will have you glowing like Julia Roberts

There's a reason so many women swear by the brand.

Finding foundation that looks flawless on mature skin can be a bit of a battle, but countless Australian women in their 50s, 60s and beyond swear by Lancôme.
The luxury cosmetics and skincare brand has been perfecting its formulas for more than 80 years now, so the people behind these products certainly know what they're doing.
Not to mention Julia Roberts, 54, is an ambassador for the brand and has been wearing the makeup for years, and she always looks amazing.

Celebrity makeup artist Genevieve Herr regularly works with Julia and used the Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation for her stunning 2019 Oscars makeup.
Of course, that's not the only Lancôme foundation she uses. She applies different products to her star clients - including Cate Blanchett and Amanda Sefried - based on their skin types and desired looks.
But with so many different foundations available, how do you know which one will work best for you?
We've taken the guesswork out of it and rounded up the top three best Lancôme foundations for mature skin.

Best all-rounder: Teint Idole Ultra Wear Foundation

For the mature ladies who deal with combination skin, oily skin, or who want their makeup to last all day - rain, hail or shine - this is the product for you.
Promising up to 25 hours of wear with built in SPF, the formula is designed to reduce shine without compromising on coverage.
With 45 shades on offer, this formula comes in a colour that will suit just about every skin tone and type.
You can also mix it with a touch of hydrating serum for a more dewy, radiant finish if you'd prefer that over a matte look.
Lancôme Pro Artist Charlotte Wood even uses this formula to achieve the perfect complexion for mature skin, as it doesn't settle into fine lines or wrinkles.

Best for dry skin: Teint Miracle Fluid Foundation

With an ultra-hydrating formula packed with pure water and rose extract, this is our favourite Lancôme foundation for those of us who deal with dry skin.
It promises not to look cakey or flake off through the day and the added Pearl Pigments help it look flawless in photos and real life.
It feels natural and lightweight on the skin and has no added fragrances or oils, so it's perfect for sensitive skin too.
Plus, the light-medium coverage will help soften redness and pigmentation without hiding your natural beauty.

Best luxury choice: Lancôme Absolue Fluid Foundation

For the ladies with a little extra cash to spend, this luxe anti-ageing foundation is the perfect addition to your makeup collection.
Developed with a unique serum-in-oil formula, it promises a radiant finish with plenty of added skincare ingredients that actually benefit your skin while you're wearing foundation.
There's a light fragrance in this one, so be aware if you have any sensitivities, but most consumers say they don't mind the delicate scent.
With medium coverage and 45 per cent active skincare ingredients, this is definitely worth the splurge.
