What's the secret to not looking washed-out in photos?

Bobbi: Since flash photography picks up the difference in color between your face and your neck and decolletage, the first thing you should do is get rid of any facial redness. Starting around your nose and mouth (the most common red-prone zones), apply foundation or tinted moisturizer, blending outward.

Once your skin tone is evened out, it's all about adding definition: Dust bronzer over your cheeks, forehead, and chin for natural warmth; sweep on mascara to draw out your eyes; and go for a brighter lip color than usual to bring extra glow to your face.
