Movies, photoshoots, catwalks, restaurants and movies all have one thing in common…
It plays a huge role in modern media and significantly influences the atmosphere of an environment.
What has this got to do with makeup? Well, we’re glad you asked…
Have you ever found yourself looking more streaky and orange when you’re out and about than you did before you left the house? Lighting!
Do you ever find your complexion looks pale and washed out, leaving you looking a little ill? Lighting!
And does your eyeshadow seem a patchy mess, rather than the seamlessly blended masterpiece you perfected at home? Lighting!
No matter your makeup skills, a lack of lighting knowledge can catch you off guard when you least expect it. Whether you’re on a night out or popping for groceries - don’t get caught looking red faced (or orange!).
If you’re wondering what all the science behind lighting is about then it’s time for a quick lesson...
Natural daylight is different to the lighting we find in our homes, office and other buildings. These lights are artificial and can give off different hues.
At home you’ll most likely find warm lighting. It’s also a common occurrence at restaurants, giving off that cosy ambience.
The harsher, brighter lights you find in offices are neutral or cool-toned and often appear white or blue-tinged.
Natural Light = Outdoors, Sunlight, Non-artificial
Warm Light = Home, Restaurant, Artificial
Neutral & Cool Light = Bright White, Offices, Artificial
Start mixing your light settings and you’re in for some bad makeup science...
If you often get ready in your warm-hued bedroom to spend a day in a cool-toned office, then you’re probably going to be looking a little washed out. The warm lighting makes your face look already full of colour so you won’t apply lots of product. This doesn’t translate well to a neutral or cool toned environment, where the bright lights actually drain that color.
Bright white lights often cause you to go a bit heavy handed with your brushes. Whilst this is great if you’re spending the day under cool lights, you’ll look a little blusher-happy if you’re spending your days pounding the naturally lit pavements.
To combat this always get ready using the same lighting as you’ll be spending most of the day in.
Let There Be (The Correct) Light…
Getting ready doesn’t have to be a minefield when it comes to lighting. The easiest way to get around your lighting woes is to make sure you have different lights to reflect where you’ll be spending your day.
