Hello all,

I have my very first 'multi girl' shoot early next week. It kind of sprung on me out of nowhere...and I'm still getting my 'foundation' act together with my kit. Funds are relatively limited, I thought I would have a bit more time...and there aren't any shops around me that sell cinema secrets, graftobian, etc. Plus since there will be a few girls there it only getting a few of each color foundation could be kinda risky.

Normally I'd order online, but there's no way they'll get here in time.

Is there a good drug store foundation that photographs beautifully? I figure I could pick up 10 of a cheaper brand to make something work. Worst case I've heard of artists getting a white or very fair HD foundation and then getting two darker foundations (cool and warm tones) to custom blend colors for each girl.

Any insight/help would be amazing!
