And it happened again! HD Powder went wrong
It’s not the first time, when we see top celebrities covered in white powder (yes, it’s makeup powder , not coke hahaha). I’m sure most of you think what was wrong with her makeup artist, and how she could not see this white powder in a mirror.
HD Powder (high-definition powder, with light reflectors and other ingredients to give your skin a flawless finish) is white, but once applied on your skin, it’s impossible to see, as it blends with your complexion. Your skin looks amazing (in real life)! But the problem begin when you stand in front of the camera with flash.
Because of its unique ingredients and white color, HD powder interact with camera flash, and becomes visible on the pictures.
That’s why the best thing you can do, before letting your client go on red carpet, is to take a photo with flash with your phone. That way you can see every single flaw that will be visible when bright lights (flash) is used.
If you have never worked with HD powder before, DON’T try it and experiment on your client that will be photographed. There are many others products and techniques that will give you perfect, high definition look (mineral powders, airbrush, tap and dab sponge technique…).
So don’t stress yourself out, and remember BLENDING is the key ;)
Ps- I do love HD powders! My favorites are MAKEUP FOREVER and GRAFTOBIAN :)
