depending upon what kind of skin you have find a foundation that best helps that particular skin type. From what you have said I would say your skin is dry? If it is then find a foundation that will put moisture into your skin, and avoid using thick powders as they will create dry patches on your face, use a light transparent powder if you need to, but normally powders are used on people with normal/oily skin. ALso for the wrinkles uder your eyes, try to get a concealer that diminshes them instead of making them look worse, go for a liquid concealer and dont put as much under your eyes, because the more you put on the more the wrinkles will show:) hope this helps!

Using an oil free maximum coverage foundation and applying it with a cosmetic sponge or foundation brush. Double Wear by Estee Lauder works very well for coverage. It doesn't crease and diminishes the appearance of wrinkles. You will not need to use much of this product at all. At first it may feel "cakey" on your skin, but when it dries it feels very light and sheer. Also try applying an oil-free powder or mineral powder on top of foundation if needed. Make sure you are using the powder sparingly, too much powder can cause those creases to appear. You can also try using a clean cosmetic sponge or foundation brush to smooth out and clear away excess foundation/powder in those areas prone to creasing. Have a beautiful day.

Also regarding the under eye area, try using a eye cream. It is important to keep this area hydrated as your skin around your eyes is the first place that shows the signs of aging and the more hydrated your skin is around the eye it will allow the hydration to help lift the skin away from the blood veins and tissue that causes discoloration underneath the eye.
Remember to only use the size of a rice grain and apply around the eye socket on the bone below your eye and bring up and around your brow- remember not apply too close to the eye.
Throughout the day your eyes will create heat from blinking which will help the product gravitate to hydrate your eye.
Afterwards use a concealer, blend out any creases and set it with loose powder.

My first question is to ask you what do you use on your complexion for concealer, foundation, powder ext...
My first recommendation would be use foundation and set it with a LOOSE powder. The loose powder will set your foundation to keep the longevity of your makeup on your skin.
It can't be a pressed powder because pressed powders are packed with oil to keep the product compressed in the packaging.
It has to be a loose powder and can be a sheer layer to help make the foundation stay on the skin.
Also use a lighter shade loose powder around the eyes and make sure you blend out any creases that may be there before setting it.
I typically do my makeup around 9am and I rarely ever have to touch it up.
The other question I would need to know is what type of products you are using because sometimes certain products will work better than others.

Maybe you should give your face a break and switch to a tinted moisturizer for awhile. It's a sheerer kind of coverage, but can give your face a nice glow. Also, it's less likely to crease in fine lines because it's not as thick as regular foundation. I've been hearing a lot about BB creams as well, they're like tinted moisturizer, but with more coverage and healthy skin benefits.
