The Meaning of High-Definition Makeup

Definition: High-Definition Makeup

As high-definition (HD) TV becomes more commonplace in homes across the world, makeup artists are faced with the challenge of giving flawless finishes to famous faces (say that fast three times). HD TV projects larger images with two to five times the resolution, so it's no wonder that HD makeup is increasingly popular.

But even those of us who are not actors or newscasters can utilize the benefits of HD cosmetics. (Recall Team Bella's test of Temptu Airbrush Foundation.) HD makeup contains light deflectors and pigments that give the appearance of smooth, even complexion — without a cakey buildup. The light texture gives a more natural look, while the pigments blend with the skin. To try out HD yourself, look for lines from Smashbox and Make Up For Ever, which include everything from concealers to foundations to blushers. There are even specially-shaped brushes to make application all the more smooth.

I love the MUFE HD line! It's more pigmented than your typical foundation, but still looks natural and pretty. I haven't tried the Revlon foundation, but it has SPF, which baffles me, since SPF often photographs ashy. It's fine for day-to-day wear, but it doesn't make sense to put it in a make-up that's advertised as looking good on film.

I've heard quite a few mixed things about the Revlon line. Although it's somewhat pricey, I think the MUFE is worth it. Plus, there are quite a few tutorials on Youtube on application/best times to use the Make Up For Ever HD. It's already on my list for my next Sephora run!

The price for MUFE products go for about $15 to $40. For Smashbox, it's $18 to $38. Revlon has a great Photo Ready line, with products in the $7 range. Score!
