Basically, powder foundation is a kind of foundation which gives medium coverage on the skin. Powder foundations are lightweight and hence they do not clog the pores. Since there is no oil or emollient present in this foundation, it is quite light on the face and does not lead to pore clogging. When used on aging skin, the powder may get settled into the fine lines and wrinkles, thus accentuating them. It may make your wrinkles and fine lines easily visible, making your skin look much more mature. Powder foundations do not cover large pores and laugh lines on the skin either.
