1. Don’t use a foundation that contains SPF if you know you’re going to be photographed with a flash.

2. Don’t use a SPF and a SPF foundation if you know you’re going to be photographed.

3. Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide are mainly responsible for foundation flashback – but only when they are active ingredients (meaning in high concentrations).

4. If you’re using a SPF foundation then use a setting powder that has a colour to it (ie – make up for ever super matte loose – or any other colour powder). This will help shield you from the flashback.

5. If you’re a makeup artist doing bridal NO SPF what-so-ever unless its really really necessary.

6. HD powder that are 100% silica are a NO NO when using flash. They are the worst of the worst. Using a very light hand is fine, but if you apply with even the faintest of a heavy hand – well, you can see from the picture that i took.
