Foundation facts & questions
Looking at recent photos, I freaked out to see my face was GREY! In several pix I'm with other people whose faces are normal, but again, there's my grey mug. Look like a ghoul! Couldn't figure it out . . . until I read a makeup artist's webpage. He said foundations w/sunscreen are great, but NEVER buy one with Titanium Dioxide in it. (T.D. is a sunscreen w/WHITE pigment which is not visible to naked eye, so you look normal in mirror & in person.) However, when photographed, your face will appear a "ghostly grey." (Has to do with the white pigment.)
My foundation (Lancome Renergie Lift)does indeed have T.D. So now what? I LOVE this foundation! It's a perfect match.
I use an spf15 moisturizer, but it's important to me to have an spf15-20 foundation as well - way too many years spent tanning as a youth.
The major brands all seem to have T.D.
Anyone out there with a foundation w/SPF that doesn't use T.D.? Thanks a lot.
