Hi everyone, my name is Joi, freelance makeup artist, and I want to answer the question today" what kind of makeup is camera-ready makeup? So, I have a couple of tools that I'm going to use. For one, I have a fan brush, and then I have an HD Finishing Powder here. But, in general, any type of makeup can actually be camera-ready. It's just a matter of the proper preparation of your skin and the proper techniques when you're applying the makeup. So, by proper technique, I just mean that, when you're applying your makeup, you want to make sure that you're blending with your brushes. You don't ever want to see any hard edges, you want to make sure that you've picked out the proper color for the skin tone that you're working with. And that you basically make sure that there's no lines of demarcation under the chin or between your blush, between your various eye shadow colors. So, that's one way to make sure that you're camera-ready. Another way is, you can use a variety of HD products. HD meaning that the products are finely milled and that the person's skin will look very good on HD TV. So, I have an HD powder here, it's actually a finishing powder. And the way I would put this on, because as you can see, it's kind of, kind of white, I would put it on very lightly. And this is going to be after you've done all your blending, you've done your foundation and everything else, and you just want to lightly dust. And with most HD makeups, they have a reflective property in them, that causes a soft focus look on the skin, when you're under lights and when you're on camera. So, just a couple of tips there to help you become camera-ready. Thanks for watching, my name is Joi.
