There’s A Simple Way To Avoid This Common Celebrity Make-up Fail

Although celebrities have beauty teams on call and access to all the latest product launches, some famous faces still fall foul to this make-up fail.

Byrdie has pointed out that some stars, including Taylor Swift and Angelia Jolie, sometimes go overboard with the translucent powder, resulting in a white caked effect in photos.

The reason this isn’t noticed pre-photo is because although the make-up looks great in theory, the silica contained in many powders reflects with light.

This is what gives your face a white effect which can look a bit off-colour in relation to the rest of your body.

However, there are a few simple measures you can take to avoid this happening in future.

The easiest way around this is to find a finishing powder that doesn’t contain silica.

If this isn’t an option, then a tissue is your best friend particularly when it comes to those of us with oily skin.

Another simple tip, recommended by Byrdie, is to wait some time before taking photos as that allows your skin to settle and absorb the powder, cutting down on that caked effect.
