3 foundations that won't give you ghost-face when the flash goes off

Foundation for flash photography can be a challenge to nail

If your foundation is too matte, it can age you or make your face look flat in photos. If your foundation is too dewy, it can make your skin look way too shiny in places that shouldn't be shiny.

These three foundations have been tried and tested by the pro (me!), and I guarantee that flash, for these, is friend .

Armani Luminous Silk €45




This works wonders under the lights. Its semi-matte, slightly luminous finish is the perfect formula for working nicely with flash photography.

Nars Sheer Glow €38

This all-time favourite of mine was actually designed by a photographer (Francois Nars) specifically for use in flash photography. (Which says it all really.)

Shiseido Perfect Refining €46Shiseido Perfect Refining FoundationThis is my favourite of the lot. I love the smooth liquid that is almost seamless against the skin. The formula seems to erase pores, acne, scars, and roughness. Although it's on the expensive side of things, it does last all day long and give excellent coverage.
