Vibe Vixen SPF FoundationDon’t wear foundation with SPF in it.

While protecting our skin from the sun’s harmful rays is important, the titanium oxide in sunblock creates a white cast on our skin leaving us looking ghostly when the camera produces a flash. Combining SPF with flash photography is a recipe for very unflattering pictures.

Do choose a full coverage, matte foundation without SPF.

A full coverage foundation with a matte finish will keep you from looking like a ghost and the matte finish will keep you from looking like an oil slick.
