Media Make-Up

February 26, 2010

Have you been watching the Olympics?  Have you noticed the make-up on the various reporters and anchormen?  How could you not?!  It’s absolutely insane.  I couldn’t figure out how any men could purposely wear so much obvious make-up but I think that I found the answer in a USA Today article about NBC.

“though broadcasters will have to find a makeup style that works in both standard and high-definition”  (Robert Bianco)

A-ha!  It’s those damn high def televisions!  I’ve heard that the close up of skin can be a bit scary.  The current answer seems to be a heavy layer of spackle which looks exactly like that on regular television.

Does it look any better in high def?
