Not 100% sure if there TD free but high street foundation wise (Easy to get hold of) I find L'Oreal's true Match (Liquid) photographs lovely (which leas me to think it is TD free) its not as amazing as say Rcma, Cinema Secrets, Mufe, Fa, Smashbox etc but good enough I'd say.

Think you need to email or call them to ask for a make up forever pro discount form, then you provide 3 forms of id to prove your a working mua.

Are you looking for TiO2 free due to the reflectance?  I tried different brands and photographed them and I wonder if this is part myth, or at least not as bad as people think.  Mac foundations, I believe, have TiO2 and it looked fine when photographed to me.

Yes Si. I was just toying with the idea of using Titanium free due to possible  light reflecting issues, Although my products seem to be ok so far so im not sure about all the hype???  Im also toying with the idea of buying some new HD airbrushing makeups instead of usual application.emoticon

Try photographing mineral make up, some brands are loaded with the stuff. TD is a chemical used in suncreams to help block the suns rays and causes major flashback when a flash is fired at it (depending on the amount).

a lot of foundations do have it, but quite small amounts which is usually fine (may create a slight grey cast, looking at the chest to the face) find a make up loaded with it and it will totally screw up your photographs.

Its interesting to just photograph it and see what happens... but trust me, its not a myth, it looks dreadful.

Here is an interesting reads on it:

Thanks Claire. When I trained in makeup, I tested about 6-10 different foundations and couldn't see the flashback, however, I have noticed it at weddings and now you mention it, this MUA used her own mineral line of makeup. So really, it's best to test the foundation under flash to be sure? The MAX Fac color adapt works fine. I use it mostly as it gives good matching, low reflectance and is easy to edit I've never seen flaking from it, I use Clarins face powders., mostly Mac eye shadows, various others. Thabks again.. Si Below is Max Fac..
