Spectral Estimation of Skin Color with Foundation Makeup
The analysis of skin color with makeup is needed to examine the effect of makeup to human skin. Foundation is cosmetics to cover undesirable color on skin and gives basic color to skin. It is important evaluate a change of skin color by the foundation. The present paper modeled the optics of skin with foundation makeup by two layers. Then, the surface spectrum of skin with foundation makeup is estimated by the Kubelka-Munk theory for radiation transfer in the turbid medium. The proposed algorithm can predict the spectral shape of skin surface with different types of foundation by appropriately determining model parameters. As an application of the skin reflectance estimation, we have developed a color simulator for human skin with foundation makeup. Experimental results showed a good accuracy of our estimation results.
