Television is certainly an invention that has changed a lot of things. Now, it is easier for people to watch their favorite sports and we can also view our favorite programs and movies. With the ready availability of television came a boom in the film industry. Makeup artists were needed in order to make the actors and actresses look their best on screen and sometimes, even to give them the appearance of being monsters or having been injured. The quality of television evolved through the 20th century and into the 21st century. It was in the early 21st century that high definition TV began to be perfected and more widely available to the public. With HDTV giving audiences a clearer and more vivid view of televised faces than ever before, makeup artists had to overcome a significant challenge, which was resolved with the development of high definition makeup.
Why Is High Definition Makeup Important?
High definition television offers viewers a clear view of what is being shown on screen. You can see every blade of grass and leaf on the tree. The texture of the clothing is so vivid that you can almost feel it. People love HDTV because it can give them the feeling that they are actually in the location being filmed. Another, kind of sticky, feature of HDTV is that it allows you to see every flaw on the faces of the people being filmed. When you are watching the news and the newscaster is reporting on something serious that happened, it kind of spoils the effect if you are distracted by the circles or crow’s feet under his or her eyes. HD makeup provides a flawless, natural looking finish that is ideal for television and movies.
How Does HD Makeup Work?
The problem with traditional makeup is that it doesn’t always conceal blemishes and lines and provide a flawless, natural finish. This is especially true on high definition TV, where every little detail shows up closely and the whole audience will know if your makeup is crusty and caked on! HD makeup is light and airy in texture, so when it is applied to the face, it conceals all flaws while blending with your natural pigmentation and giving you a pure complexion. It will not feel caked on and is designed to be long lasting. When applying HD makeup, an artist will often use an airbrush kit and specially shaped brushes and sponges to achieve ideal results.
