What Happened to Miley Cyrus' Makeup? And How to Never Let This Happen to You!
Miley Cyrus (Getty)Yikes! It looks like we have another celebrity victim of camera flashback. No doubt Miley Cyrus looked fiercely flawless in person at the Maxim Hot 100 Party last night, but the cameras tell a different story.
It looks like her makeup artist dusted on a hyper-reflective product that gave the actress a white beard. Whomp. Coincidentally, just yesterday, I was researching ways to avoid the embarrassing ghost-face in pics—I have really fair skin and any full coverage foundation I find makes me look like Casper in flash photos. Not good for wedding season. Or ever.
After much digging I stumbled across makeup artist Wayne Goss' video on the causes of the unflattering issue and even pinpointed exactly what happened to Miley. Poor, poor Miley.
1. Don't use makeup with any SPF. It's awesome for sun protection, not so awesome for pics.
2. Don't use HD powders! Shockingly these do not serve the purpose you assume they would. Use color powders, instead.
3. Always test out your makeup with a flash before going out.
Wayne's fool-proof product suggestions:
Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup
MAC Full Coverage Foundation
Maybelline Dream Liquid Airbrush Finish
Make Up For Ever Duo Mat Powder Foundation
Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish Natural
Make Up For Ever Super Matte Loose Powder
