So I sometimes get a white cast in photos from my foundation that has SPF in it. Anyone have a tip that will eliminate this?
The only tip that I can think of is to change your foundation. Maybe find a new foundation without the SPF in it that you could use only when you know you'll be taking pictures.
Thanks for the tip... and good non spf foundations? im new to the foundation game...
That's what I heard too, some foundations with SPF gives off a "white" tint. It's important to use spf on your face, so I also heard, try to use a moisturizer with SPF, and regular foundation.
What's your skin like? Dry, Oily, Combo? Normal, Sensitive, Acne-Prone? You can find some good foundation out there depending on your skin type.
MUFE HD is my FAVORITE non SPF foundation - and it photographs BEAUTIFULLY, I might add. Another way to prevent the white cast is to set your foundation w/ a tinted setting powder similar to your skin's shade.
thanks for the advice ladies!

The ingredient that's giving you a white cast is, in all likelihood, titanium dioxide, which is used in many foundations as the SPF. (Others use octinoxate as an SPF.)
Face Atelier Ultra Foundation is pretty good as well. No SPF, good coverage.

Any HD foundation will take away that white cast! I learned that the hard way as well. I wouldn't completely get rid of your other foundation, though. If you know you're going to be in the sun I would continue using it.... but if you have an event such as graduation or a wedding definitely reach for that HD product! MAC has been my go-to for that!

Have you tried layering it with a touch of bronzer on top? I am the type who only buys her foundation or bb cream during winter and I just add bronzer on top of them in the summer when I'm all tanned up and I am easily tanned within 10-15 minutes. It helps with the white cast. Cause to be honest, we are always outside and we tend to take pictures whenever we're with our friends so it is dumb to have a non SPF foundation/bb cream and I live in Texas so SPF is a freaking must here.
@Eilla You're almost resurrecting the dead! This thread ended almost a year ago. ;)

Also, you may want to stay away from foundations with light reflecting properties in them.. flash will bounce off the face like that

Usually spf in a foundation causes a white cast. So either use a moisturizer with spf, and get a new foundation without spf!
