I think its the lighting too!  One of the other things you can do when you tint/color your buttercream is not to over mix it - that way there are shades of the same color still in the same bowl. That way, when you put it into your piping bag you will get some lighter and darker areas.  The best part of that type of decorating - if it doesn't look good on one cupcake, scrape off, mix it up and do it all over again.

 

The color variations in my avatar pic have multiple color buttercream in the same piping bag.  Good luck.
