That surprises me given that, to the best of my knowledge, film has always been most sensitive to blue. Then again, throw on an orange filter and you're killing two birds with one stone with the blue lipstick - dark lips and glowing white skin. It would obviate the need for a blue filter (thus lessening the need to cake on the make up) and would avoid zombie white eyes for those of us with blue eyes.
Okay, that works for me
