Sara’s quote is: “It’s not about beauty, it’s about the illusion of reality!” It’s also about the make-up appearing organic on the skin and not distracting to the eye in the HD, 4K and 8K mediums. It’s about knowing every aspect of your craft, ie; color theory, lighting, lighting color theory, techniques of application and most important protecting the skin of your talent.
