Plus Size Disney – Gaston

“No one’s slick as Gaston
No one’s quick as Gaston
No one’s neck’s as incredibly thick as Gaston’s
For there’s no man in town half as manly!”

As much as I hate to admit it, I would probably fancy the pants off Gaston in real life. I seem to be drawn to huge arrogant oafs! Haha!

So, here’s my Plus Size Gaston outfit post for today …

Tiana is definitely one of my favourite princesses and this dress definitely inspired me when I found it.

The dress I’ve chosen for this outfit post goes up to a UK size 30/32 so covers the higher end of Plus Size which is fab!

Plus Size Disney – Do you think maybe she’s a wildflower?

Alice in Wonderland was one of my absolute favourite books as a child and when I first saw the Disney classic, it fast became one of my favourite films too.

One of my favourite scenes is when Alice is walking among the flowers and when I saw this dress it reminded me of this scene.

So, here’s how I styled it!

Avoiding Flashback

A while ago the UK press were having a field day over a photo of Angelina Jolie at The Normal Heart premier with a white substance on her face and neck.

This is the photo

20140518-161313-58393788.jpg

The press have been commenting about how her makeup artist should be sacked for not blending correctly and that Brad was mean for not telling her she had white powder on her face … neither of which are accurate.

The powder that was used is likely to be a HD (silica based) powder, these are amazing and flawless in natural light and with HD cameras but flash photography will cause a white appearance.

I’ve been caught out by this myself …

20140518-162154-58914012.jpg

Yep, I learnt the hard way about HD powders under flash photography!

To the naked eye, these powders create a flawless appearance. They are usually very finely milled and so are perfect for setting concealer in problematic areas. Just don’t use them if you’re going to be photographed with a flash!

Whilst HD (silica based) powders will cause this extreme white effect, it isn’t the only makeup that can problems under a flash. Foundations with high levels of SPF, zinc oxide, titanium dioxide or with ‘light reflecting’ qualities can also cause flashback, it won’t be as intense as the photos above but it will cause a bright appearance to your face in pictures.

Some excellent foundations which don’t cause flashback

Illamasqua Skin Base – Full Coverage
M.A.C Face and Body – Build-able coverage
Chanel Perfection Lumier – Full Coverage
Rimmel Lasting Finish 25hr – medium coverage

I hope you’ve found that helpful in assisting to avoid white face photo syndrome!
