I wanted to ask about going-out foundations … I have been trying to find a long-lasting foundation without SPF so that I don’t get flashback in photos and look like an eagle!
Haha, I know what you mean about that photo-bombing eagle – it has appeared in many of my past pics! A photographer friend of mine says that the white-photo-face syndrome is indeed usually caused by the sunscreen in makeup – however, only sunscreen of the zinc oxide variety. But – to make it more confusing – this is not always the case, as one of her favourite bases for photos is Ultraceuticals Tinted Moisturiser SPF30+ ($60, Ultraceuticals), which contains zinc as well as other sunscreen actives. That’s why it’s worth playing around with your camera settings before you bin your base.
You asked about long-lasting, going-out foundations … so a tinted moisturiser probably doesn’t fit your bill. So try M.A.C Face & Body, $60, M.A.C. Another friend, a makeup artist, swears by this beauty’s ability to hold up well in front of a camera, as well as all night long.
