That Nicole Kidman pic - and some other celebrity pics that had the same problem - it was an HD powder that was supposed to be luminous in photos, which is why you would see it in highlighted areas of the face. Turns out under professional cameras, or so many flashing at once, it picked up too much of the reflecting particles and showed up. It went on for a bit before everyone realized what was happening and they stopped using it.
