Makeup Doll Tips and Tricks - Why the white face?

We recently had a concerned future Makeup Dolls June bride, who was a bridesmaid in her friends wedding and had her makeup done by another artist and wondered why her face was so white in the photos? This may have been due to a simple ingredient in the foundation used - SPF. 

While SPF does wonders for our skin, it wreaks havoc on our complexions in flash photography due to it's reflective nature. How do you stop from becoming the washed-out, pasty version of your beautiful self? Purchase a foundation without SPF and apply your sun protection after your moisturizer (or buy a moisturizer with SPF in it for ease), allow to fully dry and apply foundation. 

Viola, pale face no more! Below are just a few of our favorite "non-SPF" foundations:
