Thanks to the advent of High Definition TV, make up artists the world over are facing a rather troublesome conundrum. Whereas before the facial imperfections of actors could be hidden with some artful lighting and skilled make up application, HD is so powerful that it picks up every minuscule flaw and highlights it.
So the big make up companies are stepping up to the plate with a whole new range of make up that is suitable for the HD world – make up that will help minimize and in most cases elimate distracting flaws.
Now you may be thinking, what does this have to do with me? I’m not on camera! But you would be wrong – the new make up is great for everyone. Chock-full of light-reflecting pigments, the new stuff will make even the most terrible skin look airbrushed. Obviously the results will be different from person to person, but invest in a good brush to apply the foundation (Giorgio Armani does a spectacular one) and you’re good to go!
Here is a selection of make up that is HD friendly and YOU friendly:
