I recently got me a pixel 5 and have noticed all of the photos taken from the front cam of the pixel 5 paint me red, literally ! All the photos have me with 'red skin' instead of my natural brown skin- is there a setting that needs to be changed for this to stop happening? I have tried a fair few photos with all three options of the Face Retouching option with no luck. There's one other reddit thread talking about this but its for a Pixel 2 XL. All I want is just a normal (real looking) photo.

Hi Happy Buddha,

Can you please check and let us know if you are facing the same issue in safe mode?

Thanks,

Is this effect present under natural daylight, artificial light or all light?

@Piyush - I have the same issue in safe mode. I almost want to say the 'red-ness' is slightly less obvious in the pics take on safe mode - but over all, I dont see much difference. 

@MrBelter - This happens only to pics taken in natural (sun) light. EIther outdoors or indoors (with the light globes/bulbs) turned off. I haven't seen this happen in pics I take inside the house after dark - with the bulbs on.

I have tried to put a few pics together for comparison here https://imgur.com/a/8MuCZ2K
Images on the left are from an old (Samsung) phone and the images on the right are from a pixel 5
The bottom most image is from Safe mode. 
The images were clicked in almost (99%) same location and similar natural light brightness.
