Simple steps to a camera-ready face

Putting on lots of makeup when you don’t wear it at all – or you wear very little – is scary. But when you’re being photographed, you have to exaggerate the amount of makeup you apply, since makeup doesn’t show up as vibrantly through the camera lens.

Here’s the good news: Your pictures will last forever, but the makeup won’t. The makeup we apply for your photoshoot isn’t permanent. A little makeup remover, and it’s gone in seconds!

I’ll help you prepare for your photoshoot – whether it’s for prom, senior pictures, your wedding, or a business portrait – by applying the proper balance of makeup. You’ll look like yourself, and in the pictures, you won’t look as if you’ve plastered on too much makeup.

Here are four simple steps we’ll take to achieve your camera-ready face:

  1. We’ll do a practice session. First, we’ll discuss the facial features you want to conceal and enhance.
  2. We’ll experiment, applying complementary tones that don’t look wild on your face. You’ll give me feedback about what you like and don’t like, and we’ll adjust accordingly.
  3. I’ll ask you to stand outside, in natural light, and take some selfies.
  4. When you get home, look at yourself in the mirror. If you’re not used to seeing yourself with a lot of makeup on, it will feel weird at first. But the longer you look at yourself, the more you’ll get used to it.
