Click ahead now to see the best HD makeup for your next close-up.
Today's visual technology casts a brutally honest focus on heavy makeup and every little flaw in your skin. Standard screens of the past displayed a mere 330 lines of resolution; today, standard HDTV spans 720 or 1080 lines. "Every pore, fine line or bit of shine is magnified," says Nicholas Lujan, managing educator at Make Up For Ever. A camera flash is just as unforgiving, glaring off of oily spots and blowing out your skin to an Edward Scissorhands pallor.
In the past, heavy "pan-cake" foundations covered all sins, but in HD, it looks like stucco on your face. Makeup artists took note and developed "HD" makeup -- products that are full coverage but miraculously light in texture and contain deflectors and shaped pigments that bounce light. The result? A smooth, radiant complexion without zero visible cake-y buildup on camera. And these products aren't confined to pro makeup artist kits. Click ahead to get your hands on the best HD foundations, powders, primers, concealers and even blushes that will keep you flawless next time you step into the spotlight (or just want flawless, natural coverage.)
