Your makeup is beautiful, but definitely shiny. Maybe she could set it with powder or something? The colors are great though.

Shiny yes. But I think the colors are good. You look awesome. Maybe some blotting papers? Or talk to her about using a different foundation?

Holy shiny! The colors are nice but the shine is out of control. I have the same problem. My makeup artist is combatting the shine with two products: she starts with the Rose Face Mask by Fresh (http://www.fresh.com/html/skincare/treat.shtml) and then preps my skin with an application of Estee Lauder Clear Difference Oil Control Hydrator (http://www.esteelauder.com/templates/products/sp_nonshaded.tmpl?CATEGORY_ID=CATEGORY5865&PRODUCT_ID=PROD6222)

The combination is refreshing and soothing and works well to control the shine. Maybe they would work for you too.

I think the lips are a little too brown… it’s a bit more of a mature look, so depends what you are looking for.

you eyes look amazing!! you look great!! maybe rice blotting papers to control the shine?? lipstick may be a little too "coral" or a bit "orange-ish" but really your skin is flawless adn the makeup is not too much – it’s just right! since you’ll be at the nm counter again – maybe ask for shine control on your next trial?? have fun!!

Apparently if your foundation has a lot titanium dioxide in it, then you’ll be shiny in photos.  It is in a lot of makeup as a binding agent, but foundation with SPF tend to have a lot of it, as it’s a cheap sunscreen agent.  It essentially reflects light – good for sunscreen, bad for photos.  So, I’d check the amount of titanium dioxide, if you can, or go for a foundation that is SPF free.  MAC’s Studio Tech is supposed to be good, but I’ve never used it.

I’m using mineral make-up, which has a lot of titanium dioxide in it, so it tends to shine, but my make-up artist is using a finishing powder over it to take out the shine.  My trial was yesterday and I love they way it turned out.  I still have to download the photos, but from looking at them on the camera there is no shine.  Ask your make-up artist to use a finishing powder to cut down the shine (no a mineral based powder).

I finally posted my make-up preview pics — I’m wearing mineral make-up with a finishing powder to lessen the shine.  I think it worked pretty well!  YOu can see them at http://calioc.blogspot.com/

Good luck!

Your eyes are beautiful!!!

I would have to agree with the shininess factor. I think you need a different foundation.

I would also agree with some above posters that maybe a more pink lipstick would be nice. It’s completly up to you and what suits your style. But definitly stick with the eye makeup!
