I'd like to know the answer to this too! And also, what is the best foundation brand to use for photographic makeup?
Thanks

While I don't know which specific brand is best, I've heard a million times that matte foundation is definitely preferred for photographs. From what I've heard, and what I've experienced, anything too shimmery or 'illuminating' tends to look very strange in photographs. I especially don't like the look of an illuminating under-eye concealer in photos, because it tends to make that part of a person's face look much paler than the rest (almost like they tanned with oddly shaped sunglasses on). I'd recommend using a matte foundation and then a highlighter in key areas if you really want that soft, dewy glow in photographs.

For foundation, blush, bronzer, and contour I would recommend matte, and without sunscreens. Shimmer foundation reflects a lot of light, making skin look a good 2 shades lighter than it actually is. Sunscreens in foundation and the likes shows up as white in photographs. Stick with shimmer on the browbone, the very tops of cheeckbones, and the little cupid's bow of the lips if at all - where you would normally apply a highlight.

In makeup applications to be photographed (bridal, publications, etc.) I even go so far as to highlight matte, simply using a cream or powder on the top of the cheekbone that reads a few shades lighter than the foundation. I like my shimmer in photos to be concentrated on the brow and/or on the lips.

If in doubt, apply the product to yourself, and then photograph yourself with a bright flash. You'll know then if you can use the product for photographed applications.
