One of the biggest trends in makeup right now is high-definition makeup. High-definition makeup was originally designed for use with HD cameras, on television and in film. Now more and more women are hopping on the high-def bandwagon. It promises to blur all your flaws, and be undetectable on your skin. So what’s all the hype really about?
According to Sephora, “High-definition makeup provides a picture-perfect complexion and is invisible to the naked eye”. High-def makeup contains superfine micro particles that blend perfectly into your skin, allowing you to look like you aren’t wearing makeup at all. These micro particles are especially important for HD photos and film. High-def cameras pick up every flaw, wrinkle, pimple, and line. High-definition makeup is made with photochromatic pigments. Photochromatic pigments reflect light instead of absorbing it, which blurs fine lines, wrinkles, and skin imperfections.
According to Liesa Goins at Webmd, “Often HD makeup formulas are designed to moisturize because makeup can settle into cracks and creases”. Most high-definition makeup has a matte finish. High-definition makeup is meant to show off your gorgeous skin, and look great no matter what your skin problems may be.
High-definition makeup can be used daily, but one of the best uses for it are photography. It’s extremely beneficial for brides, as they need flawless makeup all day. High-definition makeup photographs perfectly, and brides want their pictures flawless.
Suprisingly, high definition makeup doesn’t cost anymore than regular foundation. Make Up For Ever and Smashbox both have high-definition foundations for around $40.
