First post so if I say anything idiotic, please put it down to inexperience smile
I'm going on holiday to Bulgaria in two weeks and I just wondered if anyone could recommend any makeup that won't melt off/flake off/turn me green in the heat, foundation especially? I'm not planning on wearing it all the time, but just maybe in the evenings/trips.
If anyone has got any advice I'd be really grateful smile

I use mac studio fix foundation. Its fab. its pretty matte so good if its hot, or if you dont want anything too heavy (though with mac sf you only need a little dab alot goes along way) then try a good tinted moisturiser. I like mac or laura mercier, both excellent imo though the mac one is a better colour match for me.

Hi. Maybe try one of the foundations with a hint of self tan? I think Olay do one, that way you get the best of both worlds. I'm not sure about how well it stays on in the heat though.

I wore Estee Lauder Double Wear last year on our honeymmon cruise round the Med. No problems, stayed put all day.

Go to a counter and get a sample pot, lasts for 10 days (allegedly, can't verify as I got a different shade 2 weeks ago and haven't worn it every day but still going on the sample pot before I open the new one).

Thanks very much for the help, I'll try some samples and see if I can find one that won't leave me looking like a melting icecream smile
