Beauty Tip Tuesday!

Today's tip is great to remember when taking pictures, whether you are the model or the makeup artist....

 When taking pictures, avoid using foundations with an SPF.  SPF in some foundations can cause you to appear "white" in photos.

 Liquid and creme foundations that have a matte finish are great to use for pictures to avoid the "shiny"
