Need help getting amazing pics out of your photo session? Take some tips from a professional!
First, get a great haircut that favors your face. Any experienced hairdresser can give you a new look. If you color, have your hair touched up a week in advance.
Since photography lighting will wash out your skin tone, be sure to up the vibrancy of your makeup by 25%. If you never wear makeup (men included), add some pigment to your cheecks and lips going one shade brighter than your natural coloring. A non-shimmery, colored lip balm will work for this.
Practice your model face. Take a few minutes to learn how to pose and how to do appealing facial gestures. It’ll make all the difference!
And finally, get plenty of rest the night before and be sure to plan your meals and snacks so that you don’t get hungry while getting your pictures taken.
As long as you are relaxed and prepared for your photo shoot, you should get the results you want. Remember to thank your photographer!
How do you choose the best makeup look for your big day? Here are some pointers…
If you want a pure and fresh look, ask your makeup artist for ‘night time natural’. This will give you a soft look that isn’t washed out in pictures. Your audience will love it.
If you want something more dramatic, ask for ‘ballroom’ makeup. This includes a sexy, smokey eye, lots of blush and contouring and a nude or natural lip. This is a great look for evening weddings and if you are comfortable wearing makeup.
If you are a fashionista type, meaning you love inventing your look and keeping up with the latest trends, let your makeup artist explore some artistic looks with you. This is commonly seen at Red Carpet events and is fun and unique.
Whatever your style, remember to trust your makeup artist! As long as he or she comes well-recommended, has a great portfolio and understands your needs, you will be in excellent hands. Your pictures will turn out amazing, too.
If you have an oily scalp, a dry shampoo is a great option for you. This fresh-smelling powder actually suspends oil from the hair into airy fluff. It comes in mini sizes for your purse or overnight bag and also large sizes for your bathroom supply.
To apply dry shampoo, take thin sections on dry, day old hair and spray along the root line. Continue to do this section by section. Scrub your scalp with the pads of your fingers and brush through, if desired. Super easy and smells good!
Dry shampoo is also great for refreshing and creating big hairstyles. It is a stylist’s secret on the runway and in photo shoots. Lift hair from the ends and lightly spray dry shampoo throughout hairstyle. Tousle, as desired, or shape into an updo.
This product is so easy to use and delivers great results. Enjoy!
