This is the most common way girls sabotage their makeup for photos
There’s a reason why makeup was originally used in theater – because it adds dimension and looks bomb in photos.
In fact, when you’re beating your face, you’re probably more worried about your makeup looking cakey IRL than you are worried about it looking bad in photos, because makeup generally looks better in photos than IRL if you get your angles right.
But there is one major mistake you can make with your makeup that’ll ruin any shot you had at taking a good photo, and it’s super common.
According to Kelli J. Bartlett, GLAMSQUAD Director of Artistry, the #1 mistake that people make with their makeup that translates badly to photos is overly bright under eye concealer.
“This happens when concealer isn’t the correct color for your skin tone and isn’t properly blended,” she explained to Galore.
And if you pay attention to celebrity gossip magazines, you’ve probably seen some of your fave celebs fall victim to this mistake. Tragic.
But the good news is you don’t have to be a makeup victim like Nicole Kidman. Just take extra care when applying under-eye makeup.
“This can be avoided by using a beauty blender to press in the translucent setting powder and whisk away the excess with a big fluffy brush,” she explains.
Also, as she mentioned above, make sure that you’re using the right shade for your skin tone. If you’re not sure, have a professional (a.k.a makeup counter employees) help you choose one, that’s what they’re there for!
And if you’re a beauty beginner, maybe steer clear of the under-eye concealer and just try getting more sleep – or try taking an iron supplement, as it’s known to help with dark under-eye circles!
