Here’s Why You Look Like an Espasol Under Flash Photography

Blame it on foundation!
Here’s Why You Look Like an Espasol Under Flash Photography Blame it on foundation!

Picture this: It’s Thirsty Thursday and you’re about to get turnt with a couple of your gal pals. Naturally you’ll send out a few snapchats, pouting your lips and pretending to be Kylie Jenner, showing off your awesome new matte lippie and that cat eye you spent a good 20 minutes to perfect. Re-watching your snap, you realize that the front flash washes you out, making your neck, cleavage, and everything else appear 5 shades darker than your face. How can you solve this?

According to makeup artist Xeng Zulueta, one major makeup no-no that girls often commit is using foundation that isn’t tried and tested under flash photography, hence making the face look whiter than your neck. One quick way to fix this problem is to warm up the face by using more matte bronzer so you avoid looking too kabuki.
