I desperately need either better lighting, a better camera, or both. Because I am getting sick and tired of not being able to capture my makeup the way I see it.
Anyways, I have a drawer full of beautiful pigments and mineral makeup that I don't ever use because it's messy and takes too long to apply. A couple days ago I found time to dive into this drawer and slap some colors together for a look. I personally REALLY liked the look and was so excited to show it to y'all. Upon taking pictures, however, I was super duper disappointed. Here's why:
The makeup was a lot more pigmented and brighter in person. Oh, and I also didn't have any foundation on so there are no full face photos. All eyeshadows were applied dry. Anybody have tips for applying pigments? I don't know when to use them wet, what kind of base to put underneath (especially since I don't own the legendary eye pixie poxie), etc.
