Is There A Way To Make My Face Look Less Pale?

LilaaaLilaaa Mrs. JunPyoBAWSTONNN, MAPosts: 1,560Member
In PICTURES.
For some reason, whenever I take pictures with friends or by myself, whatever the case... my face turns out looking mad pale!! No matter whether I'm wearing a really noticeable/pigmented blush, it just never shows up in my pictures "/. It's weird.. anyone have any suggestions on how I can make my face look less pale in my pictures? I'm sick of looking like I'm sick in pictures, lol.

EX. Some pictures taken Friday night.
Yes, I was wearing blush in those pictures, yet you can't even see it image
And they're NARS blushes too...

Any suggestions would be great, thanks guys.

    Yeah, but is there a way I can take pictures but my blush still show up? Cause I see a lot of girls take pics with flash but you can still see their blush color =/

    did you use flash? because flash drowns out alot of colors. it is also depends on the type of camera you use because some cameras are horrible at capturing real life colors into a picture.

    i am not sure if you can make your skin look darker in pictures without wearing more makeup if that is what you really want. its like performers/models who wear layers and layers of makeup because the stage lights drown out their face and make it look pale.

    maybe you can try bronzer. i actually see your blush. it blends in very well. i see it very clearly in the first picture. i dont think you look very pale in your pictures. you certainly do not look sick.

    yeah, by putting more makeup

    i used to have studio pics taken. I had to put very thick makeup.
    If I wore my daily-version kind of makeup, i looked like I didn't wear any in the pictures.

    i agree you look normal. like a normal asian girl should look image. i would of thought that you would ask to look paler but was surprised you asked to look less pale. i mean the only obvious way to not look pale-though you don't, is to just hang out in the sun all summer and there goes your end result.

    come on! you look just fine.. actually beautiful and there's nothing wrong with your skin tone!
    if it's about the blush.. next time try to put on a thicker layer of blush on your cheeks coz yeah.. they fade away after a while... that's what I do..
    and if it really fades away after that while I'm out.. I use my lip stick as a blush.. put on alittle here and there then rub them to distribute it .. it works better than blushes and stay for a longer time.. (ofcourse you can't use a glossy lip stick... actually I have a pink lip stick for times like this.. just for my cheeks believe it or not ... but they stay there for a longer time!)... or hmmm... use a bronze blush....
    and if u have non of those.. pinch your cheeks they will turn out pink! lol seriously..
    and yeah.. don't use flash when taking pics...

    hope that was useful image

    I don't necessarily want a tan per say, just a "healthy glow" to my skin, y'know? image I still feel like I look pale.

    I use a nikon p&s. I thought they're supposed to be good since they're one of the top quality brands in digital camera's. And I think what you saw is just the natural shadow of my cheeks. Should I layer on my blush.. do you think that would help?

    Try using bronzer? And a thicker layer of blush.

    No, I'm not one of those asians girls who's obsessed with having light skin. Light skin doesn't look good on me imo.

    If you think that's pale, then you should try taking a look at my photos. I look pasty and sick. Don't worry though, your skin color looks fine image

    You look good! I don't think you look pale.
    But if you want a "healthy glow" then try using a shimmer blush/bronzer. Don't cake too much colour on your face or it'll show and when the flash hits, NOT PRETTY.
    I have very pale skin too. I don't wear any foundation or anything but I just brush on a little blush and when I take pictures I have a noticeable glow.

    I use Bare Minerals - Precious Diamonds. If you can find it, try it out.

    I'm naturally very pale as well. Jergen's self tanner has been working like a charm.

    i don't think this is a good forum to ask...cus most people are obsessed with being PALE. lol.
    but uhh why don't you not wear foundation? but you're obviously naturally light skinned~! so just go to a make up counter and ask for some real noticable bronzer or something image
    summer/spring is coming up soo get a tan o-o

    Lol, ur other friend in the picture is actually paler than u =p

    Pictures are stupid, i have the same problem. i have normal/dark eyebrows, but in pics, they seem to be nonexistent. Then I'd fill it in to make my eyebrows look even darker, but my eyebrows still look light in pictures, when they're super dark in person. UGH.
