I am 39 and my skin is no longer as lovely as it used to be!

I don't wear a lot of make up, but would like to get some kind of base that smooths and 'perfects' my skin and provides a decent base for my powder - but I don't want it to be tinted. I have tried various bb creams in Boots, but they all turned quite foundation-y when rubbed in (even ones that started off purple in the tube!!).

I have no idea if such a thing even exists, or what to google - any suggestions would be much appreciated...

Clarins facial oil; bobbi brown and mac have just recently brought out skin oils aswell so you can have a look-- the oil does not sit on top of the skin and does not appear oily.

If you have a charlotte tilbury near you ask for a wonderglow sample.

I like Clinique Pore Minimiser; it gives a Matt coverage without being as heavy as foundation.

Second the pore minimiser, it works miracles on my t zone to stop it being an oil slick after a few hours, although I find I have to top up/blot by the end of the day

I've just bought Stila's Illuminating foundation (10 watts) in the M&S sale. Yes, I know it's foundation but it's very light coverage, makes my skin look lovely and I've had lots of compliments!

Smash box Photofinisher Primer - they have different ones for different needs even out your skin and are meant for perfecting skin for under make up. Garner Nanoblur ( bought this on a Youtube beauty person's recommendation) is only a fiver and makes skin all lovely and silky as well as minimising fine lines and pores.
