If you keep tabs on makeup trends (and even if you don't) it's likely you've started to see two capital letters adorning packaging and bottles: HD. Is it a marketing gimmick? What does it mean? We're here to answer your questions. HD stands for High Definition and, like you might assume, it's related to the HD-TV world we live in. Turns out High Definition technology is in everything these days from your flat screen to the camera in your iPhone. And traditional makeup just doesn't cut it for masking flaws when they're magnified 2 to 5 times compared to the resolution of old school cameras and televisions. If you've got an HD TV, go ahead and check out your local evening news, chances are you'll see what we're talking about.
What does it mean for you? In our uber-social society obsessed with sharing candid photos taken with HD lenses, you don't always want to be caught in the glare of bad lighting. Or be forced to untag 30 pics by hand that your best friend put up on Facebook. HD Makeup can help. It's formulated with light-deflecting materials, like silica or crystals, that help your skin look flawless even in the most impromptu photo sessions. Without further ado, here's a roundup of HD information and products to tackle technology while still giving great face.
