Earlier this year I went for a hair and make up trial at a local Aveda salon, and I loved the looks that they did for me. At the time I wasn’t very knowledgeable about make up, and I had an event later that night and everyone was constantly complimenting me, so I took that as a good sign.
However, since that time I’ve been getting more and more into make up by hanging around the Make Up Addiction subreddit and in general making more of an effort. Because of this, I realize that I think I had make up flash back on the night of my trial. We were at a dark club and my friend took a flash picture of me with her phone, and when she showed it to me I immediately noticed that my face was waaay whiter than my chest and neck, but I just assumed it was something to do with weird lighting… and deleted the picture. Now, I’m wondering if it wasn’t make up flash back, especially since the majority of the Aveda products were mineral powders.
Now, I’m not certain what I should do. I have make up scheduled for me, my mother and my three bridesmaids. The photographer we’ve booked has a photojournalistic style so she doesn’t necessary rely on external lighting, but she’s probably going to have to use a flash at some point during the night. I was going to call the salon and talk to the make up artist, but as I deleted the picture I don’t have any evidence of my concern. What would you do in a situation like this?
