Developed in collaboration with lighting designers and leading cosmetology professionals and backed by independent research, Xicato Beauty Series is a remarkable light source that makes people look and feel their best. Studies show that moods and confidence are enhanced when people feel better about themselves, and when they enjoy how they feel, they engage in their environment and stay longer. Beauty Series is designed to bring out the natural, subtle beauty of skin tones.
The true test of skin tone rendering is at the cosmetics counter, where lighting must be optimized for the often conflicting goals of providing comfort for customers, while making it possible to match cosmetic foundation colors to skin tone. Effective branding requires an environment in which customers feel good about themselves and leave with a strong positive impression. Matching is critical for ultimate customer satisfaction and to prevent wasteful and expensive returns.
Xicato Beauty Series LED module was created and evaluated alongside other light sources in a cosmetics study by University College London, Nulty+ Lighting Design, Xicato, and a major global cosmetics brand. Beauty Series emerged from extensive trials as the light source that best balanced the accurate color discrimination required when matching foundation to skin tone, with the comfortable warmth of incandescent. Participants in the study reported feeling better and looking better under Beauty Series, and rated the light as the best overall.
Managers and customers in cosmetics stores in which Beauty Series is installed have commented on how soft and natural the light feels, while at the same time making it easier to choose and apply makeup.
