‘NO MAT­TER WHAT I DO, MY FOUN­DA­TION AL­WAYS ENDS UP LOOK­ING THICK, HEAVY AND STREAKY. CAN YOU HELP?’

IF YOU’RE US­ING A BRUSH or sponge to ap­ply your foun­da­tion, make sure that it’s clean. Prod­uct build-up can cause streak­i­ness and a thicker ap­pli­ca­tion. Dry skin doesn’t like foun­da­tion, so prep­ping with a hy­drat­ing fa­cial mist will help achieve a smoother fin­ish. You can also mix a few drops of liq­uid il­lu­mi­na­tor into your foun­da­tion be­fore ap­ply­ing it. It will give you a pretty sheer and nat­u­ral re­sult. Try: (1) Mario Bade­scu Skin Care Fa­cial Spray (R250) (2) Ur­ban De­cay Liq­uid Aura Il­lu­mi­nat­ing Mix-In Medium (R495) (3) M.A.C Strobe Cream (R490) in Sil­ver­lite 2 ‘I would like to try prod­ucts with more nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents on my baby. Any sug­ges­tions?’ Look for prod­ucts that have a high wa­ter con­tent. Check the la­bel; wa­ter should be the first or se­cond in­gre­di­ent listed. If not, skip it. Washes should con­tain very mild sur­fac­tants (the soapy foam­ing agent), which won’t strip skin of its nat­u­ral and es­sen­tial oils. The less foamy, the bet­ter. Lastly, look for skin-lov­ing in­gre­di­ents that are rich in an­tiox­i­dants and soothe sen­si­tive skin, like rooi­bos tea. GH Picks: (1) Pure Be­gin­nings Fun Time Kids Wash (R119,99) (2) Pure Be­gin­nings Fun Time Hand Wash (R64,99)
