Just after a bit of advice please.
I currently use estee lauder double wear foundation but have found it sometimes looks a bit pale/shiny on pictures......does anyone have any ideas on what brand is the best for photographic purposes??
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.
I think the nearest counter would be Cribbs Causeway in Bristol, our House of Fraser doesn't have that many concessions, I was last in there on Saturday at the Mac counter looking at the eyelash glue. There are so many things I desperately need
Revlon Colourstay I find is amazing for my skin and is the exact same on my skin as Mac Studio Fix Fluid and the fact they do two different types one for combination/oily skin which I use and also one for normal/dry skin.
The Revlon Photoready is also worth giving a try as this has light diffusing particles in it specially made for photo shoots.
