I did my first makeup oriented photo shoot last night and results were a surprise, and not in a good way!
I wanted under the eyes to start from black and gradually go to pink. The makeup artist did that and it looked the way we wanted it to when looking at model's face, but when I was taking the picture it was barely even showing and it was maybe four times lighter. What was happening that I couldn't figure it out? The flash wasn't too powerful because model's face was properly exposed or even a bit under exposed, and as for location of light I was using a beauty dish with a grid on it, kind of straight towards the model face similar to a clamshell position.
So what was wrong? Makeup, lighting, or both?
