Do you still deal with makeup dis­crim­i­na­tion when foun­da­tion shop­ping?

Re­cently it hasn’t been too bad. Makeup brands are learn­ing to be­come more in­clu­sive and cater for more skin tones.

When did you ‡ind the right foun­da­tion?

Three years ago, when I Œirst started us­ing makeup. It was a MAC sam­ple.

What’s your favourite foun­da­tion, and why?

NYX To­tal Con­trol Drop Foun­da­tion (R220) Mocha – it pro­vides per­fect cov­er­age, and it’s very hy­drat­ing.

What’s on your foun­da­tion wish list?

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Long­wear Foun­da­tion. If Ri­hanna could just hear my cries!

HE­LEN WAL­LACE, BEAUTY WRITER When did you ‡ind the right foun­da­tion?

Only once I started work­ing in beauty and had all the brands at my dis­posal to ex­per­i­ment with.

What’s your favourite foun­da­tion, and why?

SVR Clairial CC Crème (R450) Beige. Mixed with mois­turiser, it pro­vides cov­er­age while still be­ing sheer, which is my Œin­ish of choice. It’s hard to Œind my pale shade any­where; this Œits my skin tone per­fectly.

What’s on your foun­da­tion wish list?

La Mer The Soft Fluid Long Wear Foun­da­tion SPF20 (R1£700).
