Best foundation for photographs?

Question by Basil: Best foundation for photographs?
I’m looking for a foundation that photographs well. I have clear skin and, except for some redness, pretty even tone.

Also, the more affordable the better.
I’d really like a specific brand that looks well when photographed. I already know the basics of foundations.

Best answer:

Answer by Ally
I suggest a consealer for the redness. goes on great and will act as a disguise all day. I would go will a powder or liquid (whatever you prefer) that is a tone darker than your own. If it’s too light you will look ghostly. If you have naturally dark skin go for your regular tone.

    Make Up Forever’s HD foundation does exactly that, I’d highly recommend it. Although it is awfully expensive around $ 40.

    NARS Sheer Glow is also another favorite of mine for flawless skin. It’s also pricey at $ 42.

    Clinique’s Superbalanced foundation is also great. The first thing I noticed about it is what an amazing job it does at covering all discoloration with such little product. It’s a lot cheaper at $ 21 and currently my favorite.

    When looking for a foundation that photograph’s well avoid SPF at all costs. That’s what makes you look very pale and washed out. Contouring with some bronzing powder and a highlight also does wonders for photographs.
