Before I tell you girls anything about todays tip I would like to thank my lovely, pretty and loving friend (and my wedding makeup artist) Rashmi Pote (from Mumbai, India) for sharing this amazing tip on how to avoid looking like a ghost in flash photography. What to say girl you solved one of my biggest makeup problem 🙂 xoxo
“White reflects light” (that’s a no brainer 😛 )
After finishing my makeup for any evening/night event when I looked at myself in the mirror I felt beautiful, gorgeous and confidant that im gonna put out my best face and ready to rock!!! But when I look at those pics clicked in flash photography my mind screamed “why im looking like a ghost??!!!” and felt like all those time spent on perfecting my makeup just went in drain. I know we all have been there and used all kinds of filters on those instagram or photo edits apps to avoid the ghost effect. But don’t you worry girls the mystery is solved 🙂
“Avoid using products that contain SPF at night!”
Your daily moisturizers, primers, foundation, concealer, bb cream, cc cream, etc containing SFP have light reflecting particles which risks for flashback in pics, when you are under the flash photography during night/evenings. The higher the SPF in your product, higher is the chances of you looking like a ghost in that flash photography. These products are your best friend during daytime and also helps you protect from sunrays but at night they just turn their backs on you.
“Avoid HD makeup products”
Most of these HD makeup products contain high amount of silica and silver mica, which again reflects lights in flash photography.
Use any product, which have a matt finish, which will make your skin look healthy and would not make your skin shine, which reflects flash during night photography. If you still like to use products with SPF at night make sure they are SPF 15 or lower, don’t go for higher SPF ones, and use a tinted settling makeup powder instead of translucent or white powder.
