This essential element plays a crucial role both in cinema and beauty. Our makeup artists, just like cameramen and light technicians for cinema, are comparable to magicians of light who create character and kindle emotion thanks to their delicately precise and aesthetic use of colour and light. Thus, reflection, luminescence and radiance are central aspects to the aesthetics of film, just as they are in make-up.
