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 which enhance your best features while concealing your flaws against the amount of texture and volume that can be captured by today’s 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.

“These days all brides ask for HD makeup and we even suggest them to go for it. You know, with 4K technology, now even in phones, the unbelievable clarity makes it difficult for us makeup artists to cover up the marks and even out skin tones. Every bride wants to look pretty. Wedding pictures come in later and no one wants to get disappointed looking at themselves, right? You won’t believe but even wedding guests ask for HD makeup now,” explained Suhana, a makeup artist.

Here are the advantages for HD Makeup as your choice in Bridal makeup

Kind of products

Finely milled powders, though many products claim to be good for high HD or ultra HD. So, credits are also due to the bridal makeup artist applying the makeup. There are still products from Makeup For Ever and Smashbox if you ever wish to get some for home.

Fine cover for blemishes

As discussed above, HD makeup provides a fine, sheen cover that would hide any signs of acne or facial blemishes, especially if they’re being filmed by an HD camera,

Silicon light-reflecting particles

The silicon, light-reflecting particles are also used for a mattifying effect.

More ‘natural’ makeup look

Vis a vis heavy makeup options (something we have discussed in Bridal Makeup), this makeup technique helps you get a more natural effect.

Though, there’s a trick. If you just go ahead and simply use these HD products whichever way you like, you went achieve the desired, picture-perfect look we are talking about. The key is how to use these products perfectly, with assistance and then you can create a high definition look.
