You may have seen our blog earlier this month, when we discussed video conferencing, and the importance of different types of lighting.
Well, it’s a pretty similar drill when it comes to makeup application too.
Many of you will be familiar with THAT feeling.
You know the one! When you think you’ve put just the right amount of makeup on, before stepping out somewhere, and realising that your foundation is indeed an entirely different colour to your skin!
So, to help you along, we think the following will help address all the best lighting techniques before applying your makeup ahead of a big night out, or in.
You can stake steps before you’ve left the house though! And especially whilst the darker days are here, the daylight coloured light bulb is the closest shade to natural daylight you can get from artificial lighting, and best used at a low wattage to provide the best lighting for your makeup application.
These are all good rules to apply when buying makeup, but before you make your purchase, don’t forget to test the makeup on your hand, by taking it to the nearest source of natural light, and comparing it to your skin so that you can get a true colour comparison.
We may not be venturing to as many festive gatherings this year, but that doesn’t mean that our makeup and lighting should be working anything less than perfectly together.
Enjoy the festive season and if there’s a lighting query we can help you with, get in touch with a member of our team today.
