Using the right lighting can help you be sure you will look great throughout the day and/or event you are attending.
To best do this, apply the make up in similar lighting to where you will be out in the world. Office florescent lights mean a cool bright light. Daylight is warmer, and evening is generally darker and can handle stronger make up application. If you are going to be in bright sun or office lights, put your make up on in bright lights. If you are in too dark a room, your will over apply your make up. Many vanity mirrors have lighting adjustments to help you determine the difference between natural and artificial lights so that you can get the look down just right.
- Start under bright lights. Why? To prevent you from applying makeup too heavily for day wear.
- In the process, switch to regular light to check your work. Make sure that it looks good in slightly dimmer lights.
- Also, check your face one last time under "natural" light if your vanity light has that setting.
- For night wear: use a regular light, but apply make up a little heavier than usual around your eyes to give you a little extra evening glamor.
Using good lighting will help you look your best in every situation.
