Having perfect looking skin isn’t usually something that just comes naturally for most people. While this may not be a big deal for some, those who work in the film industry certainly want to take the extra steps necessary to ensure they are film ready. If you work in the adult Skype Sex industry for a company such as Arousr.com then there are a few simple but effective steps you can take to make sure your skin is at its best on video.
Prepare Your Skin
Before you even get to the point of adding makeup, it’s important to prepare your skin. If your skin isn’t prepped properly, it won’t provide that smooth even canvas for your makeup. Prepping your skin means taking the time to cleanse, tone, and moisturize your skin. Make sure you use a skin care system that works for your skin type. If you have oily skin you don’t want to be picking a moisturizer meant for dry skin.
Apply Your Canvas – Primer, Foundation, and Concealer
Next comes your canvas. Your canvas should begin with a high-quality primer. A primer will fill in fine lines, pores, even out the tone and colour of your skin, give a radiant finish, and basically provide a smooth surface for your makeup. As well, primers will make your makeup last much longer giving that just made up look for many hours to come.
Foundation and concealer are next. Since you will be appearing on film you want to be sure you purchase products that are “HD” meaning they are high definition and ideal for videos and photos. They provide that extra level of coverage to ensure that your skin appears truly flawless, yet at the same time it doesn’t give a cakey overly made up look. HD makeup should feel lightweight and not sit in fine lines and pores. As well, HD makeup can handle the bright lights much better than regular foundation can.
Add Colour and Warmth to Your Skin
Your skin should now have a smooth, flawless, and even tone to it so now it’s time to add warmth. While you don’t necessarily need to do this for your everyday makeup look, the bright camera lights can really make you look washed out. Adding back warmth through blush, bronzer, and highlighter will allow the lights to bounce and reflect off your skin while also creating beautiful contours in your face.
You may find that you need to use a little heavier of a hand when applying makeup for video. Just be sure to blend well so you aren’t left with harsh lines and streaks.
Film a Test Run
A good idea is to do all of these steps and them film a test video to see how you appear. You can see if you need more intense makeup shades, if your foundation is the right coverage and tone, and if you are seeing any flashback from the lights. With just a little practice you’ll be camera ready in no time!
