Dim, yellow lighting >___< Also, makeup for clubbing
Help~ Does anyone have any tips for makeup that'll look good in HORRIBLE lighting? Most of the soompiers here seem to major in the "flawless, daytime" look, but in yellow lighting, it just looks so..blah.
I look like everyone else. I'm going to attend an event indoors, and I can describe the lighting as....YELLOW...very...dark yellow, and dim. Actually, the lights are like, "dim yellow", "faint white", "dim yellow", "faint white" = the lights alternate across the room. EVERYONE LOOKS JAUNDICED.
Seriously. My skin looks like that in the lighting, everyone's skin looks like that, but imagine that in dim lighting. Is there anything I can do to look..better in the lighting?
Also, what kind of foundation looks flawless in pictures at night?
Like, I know a lot of girls who go clubbing, and when they take pictures in flash photography, their faces look so....flawless. And it's not even ghastly white. Their skin looks like porcelain. If anything, please do include a setting powder. =) Clubs can get...sweaty.
However, I did google up something and I got this:
Lighting plays a very important part in stage makeup effects. In theatre, coloured filters are placed in front of incandescent lights to produce a range of differenct colour tints and shades. These colour filters will absorb all the colours in the spectrum except their own. E.g., a blue filter will allow only blue light to pass through on to the stage. Below is a rough guide on how makeup colours change under various coloured lighting.
- Red makeup fades, Orange becomes lighter, yellow becomes white, green, becomes much darker, blue becomes dark grey, violet goes black
- Red makeup remains red, orange fades slightly, yellow fades & disappears, green becomes dark grey, blue becomes dark grey, violet becomes nearly black
- Red makeup becomes much darker, orange darkens, yellow darkens, green becomes very pale green, blue turns dark green, violet becomes nearly black
- Red makeup darkens, orange becomes much darker, yellow turns light mauve, green lightens, blue turns pale blue, violet turns light mauve
- Red makeup becomes pale red, orange lightens, yellow turns pink, green becomes pale blue, blue darkens, violet becomes very pale
So you can see very clearly the strong affect coloured lighting will have on makeup colours. If you are planning an event requiring coloured lighting filters keep these tips in mind when selecting your makeup colours. E.g. What may look attractive on a dancer or performer, can markedly change on the stage to a not-so attractive makeup and changed colours can bring unwanted shading, almost ghoul-like.
If anyone's curious as to why the lighting is like this
, it's an evening event inside a convention hall.
Please don't suggest changing the lighting. It came with the room. .
They're attached to the walls..and the lighting has been agreed on already..
Please help me fellow soompiers! T___T
I have internet connection problems.
And no, I don't have a 411...yet.
