#1 TAKE A DIGITAL PICTURE WITH A FLASH BEFORE LEAVING HOME
“A test shot helps you determine how much powder to use and where the flash will reveal any shine,” advises James Kaliardos, international makeup artist for L’Oréal Paris. “I always powder the center of the forehead, the tip of the nose, the lines from your nose to your mouth, and the chin.”

#2 CREATE A HEALTHY GLOW
“Sweep a bright reflective powder on the upper cheekbones—but not in the eye zone.”

#3 PLAY UP YOUR EYES FOR THE CAMERA
“Even if you want to have a subtle eye look, the camera’s flash demands more emphasis. To contour eyes, I take a neutral light brown or mushroom grey shadow and shade the eye socket horizontally, making it slightly darker in the middle.”
