Default makeup/pictures?

Hi I have a pws covering most of the right side of my face. I wear makeup to cover it, usually Estee Lauder maximum coverage. But I have noticed in pictures (especially those taken with a digital camera) that the part of my face that I wear makeup seems really white and pale. I never want people to take pictures of me because I'm worried part of my face will look like a ghost and not match the rest. Can anyone tell me why it does this and how I can fix it?

Hi Mel Bel!

Where do you live? I live in Los Angeles. I am currently working on an infomercial for a new makeup and am looking for women with PWS. If selected, you would get a makeover with the makeup, the makeup to take home with you, and $100. Plus, you would get to be on TV.

Let me know if you live close and if this sounds fun to you!

Dear Mel Bel

You may want to go to and submit the question to the email group list. There are some real experts out there in make up. Also their is an archive section on topics previously discussed and make up is definately in there.

All the best searching for the answers

I recognize your problem. Digital cameras seem to adjust themselves to the colors/light when the picture is taken. With a white background, you won't look that pale. Many of my friends are asian, that is a problem on pictures, they look radiant, I look.. well, dead. Guess I'll just have to find some new friends, preferably people that are goth

Btw, rouge (or bronze powder in the summer) is a great way to look more "alive"..

I use Dermablend and it covers the PWS on my face 100%. I do not have any problems with pictures.
