Q. Hi Alison, could you recommend a foundation to take on holiday? I need to wear foundation to cover slight imperfections but I sweat easily on a hot day and my face gets oily too in tropical climate. Please would you have any suggestions? Thank you.
A. Simple – you can use a layer of self-tan. If you put on self-tan, you will not need as much make-up because it'll help even the skin tone of any blotchiness. Don't think of self-tan as a just a tanning product – it can be mixed in with your everyday moisturiser and give you even coverage that cannot be sweated off.
From a make-up point of view, I'd recommend Mally compact foundation – it doesn't sweat or run because there are no waxes in it. Pipa Gordon is a fan of this as well.
