Post in Makeup Is Life


Only posts I have seen is suggestions for foundation's that do not have Flashback. I love my Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay in Place Makeup, and I don't know what it is, but I wear the 4N1 Shell Beige, and it matches my skin PERFECTLY, but as soon as I turn the flash on, BAM! I AM A GHOST! Can someone recommend products for me to avoid flashback? I thought it had a low SPF, and I love the finish and feel of the foundation... do not wanna give up my holy grail 😧


IMO, a lot of flashback is caused by the silica in setting powders more often than the titanium dioxide/ zinc oxide in foundations from the SPF. Are you wearing setting powder when experiencing flashback?


Similar foundation coverage without flashback (from my experience): Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick and Laura Mercier Silk Crème Oil Free Photo Edition Foundation. 


Unfortunately, I don't think there's much to do to prevent flashback if it keeps occurring other than wearing different products
