Alternatively, you can try a slight bit of over-exposure on the skin tones, but be careful, as it's easy to blow out the highlights, especially with shiny, oily skin. Another reason to use makeup.

Thanks Joe, interesting solution. If we're out in public then I don't know how keen she'll be on having white powder makeup on her face but we'll see what happens. I'll try to remember to post the final image after it's taken.
