Mercy, 50’s L’Oreal Paris NutriLift Gold

Mercy, 54, shows us why L'Oreal Paris NutriLift Gold is a great choice for maturing skin.

Today we expect our foundations to work harder, and L’Oréal Paris NutriLift Gold ($43.99) is packed with rejuvenating, anti-ageing ingredients, making it the ideal choice for glowing 54-year-old, Mercy, who wears it in shade 150 Creamy Beige. This advanced formula contains key skincare ingredients such as Pro-Retinol, vitamin C, hyaluronic acid and hydrating oils, plus an SPF20. It also contains micro-particles of gold to create a radiant finish. Mercy’s top is a Scope “Bella Bee” tunic, $140.

Katherine, 30’s L’Oreal Paris True Match Minerals

Katherine's sensitive skin should favour this base of L’Oréal Paris True Match Minerals.

Katherine’s bright personality matches her glowing skin, and L’Oréal Paris True Match Minerals ($39.99) – which has no fragrances or preservatives and is ideal for sensitive and acne-prone skin – was a natural choice for this 38-year-old organic foodstore worker, as she had never worn foundation before. The light-to-medium-coverage pure powdered mineral foundation, seen here in shade W6 Honey, has a barely-there feel on the skin, and a beautifully natural finish with an SPF15. It also works as a great finishing powder. Katherine wears a Sills  silk lounge shirt, $309.
