Easier Than Makeup
I am following up on the tip in last month’s column about fixing a shiny bald head with Lancôme T.Contrôle Matte Finish cream. I have learned that Lancôme has discontinued the product. Too bad—it was the best stuff for dulling shiny skin of any color. If you have a favorite alternative, please share it at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I believe that the interview subject’s head shining under lights is our problem, not his, so I always try to avoid embarrassing him. Only after all else has failed do I pull out the makeup.
A less obvious solution to a shiny head is to add diffusion to the backlight, change the light’s angle or use a flag or barndoor to block the light from hitting the top of the head.
