I am 38 and I've found that the best "make up" is skin care. No make-up is going to look flawless (or even good) on dry, dehydrated, irritated skin. So, first thing's first. You need a gentle effective *moisturizing* cleanser. Aveeno makes some good ones. Secondly, don't ever use a toner. You don't need it. To exfoliate, I would use twice weekly a mask made with table sugar and water, leave it on for 30 minutes and rinse. Don't scrub, just rinse. I highly reccmmend Cell Ex C or Skin Ceuticals vitamin C serum for daily use. At night, you need a good moisturizer. Cetaphil is cheap and effective. For a daily moisturizer, I recommend something with an SPF of at least 15. The whole Aveeno Postively radiant is a great line and makes a great moisturizer with skin brighteners and SPF. Once your skin is hydrated, smoother, brighter and tighter, your make up routine is simple. Put foundation only where you need it on moisterized skin, and blend carefully. Use a good concealer for spot coverage. Use the natural light (i.e, sun light) to see how the makeup looks, blend as needed. Skip powder. Instead, carry face blotting papers. Don't rely on just foundation to make your skin look pretty, a good, well blended blush can really wake up your skin, give you a healthy glow, and distract from small imperfections as can subtle lip color and a little eye color.
