    1. I have worked with Thandie on a number of occasions and her skin is pretty much flawless! However Kay may have used concealer her on but forgotten to tell me as she was pretty exhausted after the flight from New York. When she does use concealer on Thandie it is Becca’s Compact Concealer in Syrup or Cappucino (depending on whether it is winter or summer).

    1. Her skin looks like that with no makeup on! (Depressingly). And I think the Olay foundation is only in the UK – I believe it’s more like a tinted moisturiser.
