Any recommendations for makeup that won’t slide down my face in 5 minutes on a foreign holiday?

If you want full coverage that'll stay put in heat, Estee Lauder Double Wear or Catrice HD Liquid Coverage foundation will do the trick.

Apply with a damp beauty blender type sponge to avoid things getting cakey.

A good hydrating spray and a gentle going-over with a damp beauty blender during the day helps too.

I wouldn't consider using these day-to-day on holiday in a hot place though - maybe for a night out, or I'd use it for work in hot weather, but for normal day wear I think it's probably a bit much!

Do you have to wear full coverage foundation? I often use MAC Face & Body or Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation and some concealer where needed, works much better than full coverage I feel.

I love Dr Jart+ Premium BB cream in 45 spf

Medium coverage, but (on me at least) doesn't melt! Blends really well and works with all powders I've tried. Never had an issue with concealer or foundation on top either.

My skin is clear but dry and quite pale.

Just bought Smashbox Studio Skin foundation and I love it. It stays on all day - most foundations disappear from my nose after about 4 hours. Very buildable also so you can really sheer it out for day wear.

Other long wearing ones I like are Teint Idole by Lancome and Cover FX Power Play - they don't budge much on me.

Double Wear great but can be a bit cakey. I have the Double Wear Water/Nude also. It can be a bit glowy - but it lasts longer than other glowy ones.

Cover FX Power Play is probably the best I've tried for lasting in warm climates.

I will second this. The last two times I've been away (Spain and Italy mid-to-high 20s) this has been the best lasting.

IT cosmetics CC cream is meant to have good coverage and spf of 50, so would suit holidays!
