Instagram vs Editorial Makeup
I need to level with you. As a makeup artist, Instagram makeup can make my skin crawl. To each his/her own but there are a handful of really common "trends" on social media when it comes to makeup that are so far from what works in real life or on camera for that matter.
This article does a fabulous job of explaining the difference between the two.
There are other reasons, not mentioned in the article, that Instagram makeup is smoke & mirrors but I'll save that for another post.
Bottom line is this. Stick to enhancing your features and not masking them. Stay away from Facetune and other heavily edited images. Learn to love yourself for who you are and what you look like!
