You can do better than ashy makeup flashback

Translucent Setting Powder for Brown Skin

What is flashback? Well according to science (Google), it's this: The harsh white markings are caused by silica, an ingredient in many translucent powders, particularly those labeled as “HD.” I know it as the thing that haunts any picture I take with flash.

Knowing Better, Doing Better-ish

Look guys, I'm trying here—give me some credit
