HD or high definition makeup has been a familiar term for some time and you may have heard about it while watching a YouTube tutorial or maybe at beauty or cosmetic store. This makeup technique is an application technique of materials that enhance your best features while concealing your flaws against the amount of texture and volume that can be captured by today’s photographs and videographers. Though we all love those life-like pictures, the drawback of these technologies is that they are too clear, so much so, it’s almost impossible to hide blemishes, wrinkles, makeup breakouts on camera. It’s all visible on the screen and believe us, it does not look nice.

How? With the use of light-scattering and light-reflective particles, the makeup helps to diffuse the focus from your flaws, like in the case of a TV presenter, artist or video artist. This replaces the need for conventional, heavily caked makeup, which would be applied layer by layer and help get a more natural look.

HD makeup is as sheer and as natural as a makeup technique can get. It perfectly manages to even out skin tones and has now gone beyond the reach of select, celebrity makeup artists.
