Hello All MUA's

On a certain TV channel the Models seem to be using a material that is a lot shinnier, and more Glossy and does not get absorbed as the models can work in front of the camera's without losing the shine for a good while.

Simply .

Would any MUA know what the liquid is please.  

Many thanks

The photographer I worked with recently told me to use VEGETABLE oil for shoot... as it gave more sheen to body on camera, rather than baby oil.

I have used cocoanut butter too which also gave a lovely sheen...

Corn oil.

Also worth knowing that if you put on corn oil and then apply treacle or syrup the treacle or syrup clings very well and does not run as you would expect. Then smear nicely. Might be worth filing away in you knowledge for sometime in the future.

I personally prefer the coconut butter or the syrup. Corn oil gives the best effect but it tastes awful when you are licking it off!

A lot of MUAs in the US are recommending that a mixture of glycerine and water does a better job than baby-oil - I've not tried it myself so have no idea if it's true or not - might be worth a try.
I've seen olive oil used and under constant video lighting it looks a bit odd, but under stobes it looks quite good with skin tones.

the glycerin would give a more beaded sweat look than a sheen

You can get olive oil in spray cans in most supermarkets. Works a treat.

Spraying it saves getting it all over your camera after applying it by hand LOL.
