Angelina Jolie Suffers White Powder Makeup Malfunction

When we first saw the pictures of Angelina Jolie at ‘The Normal Heart’ premiere in NYC on Monday, we thought, “wow, her diamond earrings are so shiny.” So shiny that they’re reflecting light across her entire jawbone.

Then, we saw her closeup photos. Angie’s face does have reflected light on it, alright, but it’s not from her diamond earrings — it’s from the white powder splotchily applied all over her face, chest, and shoulders! It’s as if Angie was flour-bombed a la Kim Kardashian.

The culprit has been identified to be translucent powder. Celebrity makeup artists love to use it as it “blurs” the face and hides imperfections all while being invisible. It’s great for HD film and photo shoots, but in an uncontrolled situation like a premiere where camera flash bulbs go off all at the same time, it can reflect light like crazy. That’s what happened here to Angie who was blissfully unaware that her makeup was malfunctioning while she posed on the red carpet.

To be fair, Angie’s makeup did look flawless sans the harsh glare of flashbulbs. And, actually, not even the splotchy white powder could mask her perfect bone structure. However, we can’t say the same for Brad Pitt whose lousy V-neck t-shirt and wrinkly double-breasted jacket just cannot be excused.

After a run of experimental shoe styles, Angie returned to her classic roots in these Saint Laurent classic “Janis” Mary Jane pumps:

It’s humbling to see that even a famous movie star with a battalion of stylists, makeup artists, and personal assistants can still make rookie mistakes from time to time. Would you say this is one of Angelina Jolie’s worst red carpet moments?
