I always look like a ghost in photos

I wear double wear light or Bobbi brown foundations. I am quite fair but not porcelain. Just saw photos from staff party and I look like a ghost. So pale. Any suggestions? I am always the same.

You need foundation without spf in it, apparently the spf reflects back the flash.

Are you using any blush or bronzer?

Never thought of that. I stopped using touch eclat because of flash back.

Yes blush and bronzer.

Will be the flashback from double wear!

Yes double wear is notorious for appearing like a ghost in photos. I would suggest contouring or use s bronzer.

Ok. Thanks.

Try cornsilk powder over your ELDW. I read somewhere that it helps counter the flash back and it defibatelr works for me.
