How do I avoid looking like the foundation on my face and especially around my eyes are two tones lighter in pictures?

First of all, you have to get a colour that is right for your skin tone. Before you purchase your foundation, seek the advice of the make-up experts that are there to assist you. If such facilitators aren’t available, then bring along your digital camera when you try the sample colours. Rub a bit of that sample at the base of your jaw, let it oxidise for a couple of minutes, and then take a picture of it. That’s the best way to find out if it will appear too white in pics. You can also apply a primer before your foundation – this will help give you a smooth appearance, so you won’t have to pack on the foundation. For the area around your eyes, use a colour corrector specially formulated for skin there – they are much gentler. After you’ve applied your foundation, simply powder on some bronzer or sheer blusher to add that natural glow.
