Make Up! In television, the good news is that the lighting will make sure you are seen well. The bad news is there are a lot of very hot lights, which washes out both women and men’s skin. So almost everyone on camera will need something to get their skin tone back to the way it should look. In other words, make-up for television is needed to make people look normal. There will also be times when you will want more than normal, the way you do when making up for a date.
