I wear MAC Pro longwear SPF10 Foundation. Its great consistency and doesnt give you that shiny look on photos.

Or MAC Mineralize Foundation, its really light on your face and you only need to apply a small amount.

Another tip is to use a light powder over your foundation. Well, it works for me (:

The best advice is to go to a department store like Selfridges and get one of the girls to give you some ideas about what would work best on your skin

I use Estee Lauder Maximum Cover, Camourflage Makeup for Face and Body. It is around £23/£26 but was recommended to me by a Urban Decay counter. (My friend with acne scars uses Urban Decay stuff so went there 1st).

I am late 30's with a good complexion but wanted a nice even coverage like an even canvas to put make up on top of and I needed it to remain on and no sweat off under video lights for HD footage (which shows everything).

It works a treat and I never have to re-apply it after 8 hrs on in front of a tv camera. And instead of using powder to blot off any face shine (which I get naturally after about 4hrs) I use Superdrug's own make Clarity, Shine Control Paper (instant matt finish) £0.79 for a tiny book of pages of powder. You just tear one of and dab and wait til you see what it takes off your face. My male friends are always asking to use them when we are out to stop that greasy midnight shine you get when out drinking.

Anyhow it doesn't take of your makeup, are great for blending blusher and doesn't build up powder on your face like a compact or loose powder would so you don't look caked in make up at end of a shoot.

My friend uses it to cover her brown sunspots on her face and my other friend uses it to cover up her son's name she had tattooed on her arm in Chinese, when she does shoots.

Unexpectedly available in Newcastle today, Monday 30th June 2012. Top level is solo-continental, all levels & rates placed in my castings.

I was using Clinique, but after trying Bobbi Brown's I am in LOVE with that.
