The white powder is nothing but face powder.

She's wearing powder with silica microspheres or a high definition (HD) powder. The white on Uma's face was not visible to the naked eye, but when too much is used or it's not blended properly, it's highly photo flash reflective and shows up in pictures.

If a makeup artist did her makeup then it was her job to know this. The exact same thing happened to Nicole Kidman and this is why you keep seeing women celebrities who look like they stuck their faces in flour.

Well then I would fire that make up artist. I do remember seeing this on Kidman and it was explained the same way.

Why exactly is this stuff even used if it's "highly reflective"?

after looking at that picture a couple times i realized something. as bad as that powder on her nose looks, her hair is worse.

it says she showed up at an event. she showed up with that hairdo? what was it, an opening for a pay shower at a truckstop.

that said... she's still hotter than the last woman i had.

Cosmetic Silica is Silicon Dioxide and is basically quartz and sand.

Silica scatters light making wrinkles and imperfections less noticeable. Some of the HD powders contain ONLY silica microspheres which is why some people get the famous photo flour face when a flash goes off. The flash magnifies the light reflecting properties.

If you look at the 2nd picture you see her neck is white and it isn't in the first proving it's the camera flash angle and not a sloppy powdered face or cocaine as been alleged. It simply is not her fault. It's unfortunate that it happened and makeup artist have an obligation to know what's in a product and how to use it.

look at her neck skin color vs. her face. It's just a BAD BAD makeup job. I HOPE she didn't pay to have this done. Camera lights are horrible on half-way-done makeup jobs. This is just proof of it. If she did it, she needs to hire. If she hires, she needs to fire!

so she does not have a makeup artist to do her makeup, she is as crappy at putting on makeup as most people, but she should hire a makeup person if she knows she will be somewhere where they'll take her picture, home-makeup just wont do...

It's dried sunscreen. How do you think she maintains that beautiful complexion without it :-).

its just powder with spf in it, spf has reflective qualities and the lights from the cameras are capturing it. it probably wasnt noticeable except for when the cameras caught it. happens a lot

Could Uma really have been having almost as much fun as Lindsay Lohan (pre-rehab version) on an off-night?

I'd didn't think it was possible for her to get any uglier, she pulled it off.
