Tips for A Great Photo Session

reno_hair_makeup
A solid headshot can give you more confidence towards clients.

How to survive a professional photo shoot when YOU are the model? It seems scary but you can do it! Check out these hacks for an easy photo session:

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 cheeks and lips going one shade brighter than your natural coloring. A non-shimmery, colored lip balm will work for this. For masculine looks, focus on a tinted moisturizer that matches your skin tone, and a tinted lip balm. Remember to brush flat your eyebrows and add hair wax to smooth.

Practice your model face. Take a few minutes to learn how to pose and how to do appealing facial gestures. You can do quick research online for this. 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. Hangry models make everything more difficult.

As long as you are relaxed and prepared for your photo shoot, you should get the results you want. Remember to thank your photographer for a job well done.

How to choose the right wedding hair for your big day? Here are some hacks that, as a Wedding Hair and Makeup Artist, I specialize in:

Bridal hair mostly depends on the type of dress you will wear.  If your dress is low cut or strapless, hair can be swept up to reveal the neckline or left down to be showcased.

A dress that is high on the neck or shoulders takes up more visual space and may look better with an updo. Backless dresses look beautiful with hair completely pinned or off to one side, giving the wedding audience a chance to admire the your beautiful skin from behind.

The idea is to keep proportion between your hair and dress so that they compliment each other.

For bridesmaids, hair can be similar to yours but should never upstage the bridal look, since you have center stage on this day.

Many hairstylists offer a free wedding consultation and have recommendations for other wedding needs, such as makeup and photography.  Getting professional advice can make planning your wedding a little easier.

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.

Makeup For Men

Although most of our men these days leave makeup to the girls, there are times when it is helpful to even out that manly glow.  As a professional makeup artist, I get to freshen up male models before they get their pictures taken!

On photo shoots for men, I like to insist that I am not dolling the men up, I am toning them down.  This means a bit of bronzer on the bones and a touch of color to the cheeks and lips so everything looks moisturized and HEALTHY!  I am giving them an even glow so their audience sees the model, not the blemishes or a pale I-work-indoors skin tone.

Makeup for men takes ten minutes or less, depending on skin discolorations and photo shoot conditions such as sun and heat.  Check out the results!

Five Minute Makeup

hair_and_makeup_reno
Hair and Makeup by Rebecca Schembri for Nicole Williams State Farm Insurance

Want to be beautiful all day long in just five minutes? I can show you how.

As a makeup artist, I have to do good work quickly since YOU have places to go! Here is a beauty base you can flaunt in just minutes:

First, you will need the following items:

CONCEALER, BRONZER, BLUSH, MASCARA, LIP GLOSS or CRÉME,  and MAKEUP BRUSHES

Next:

~Apply CONCEALER with foundation brush in the t-zone and to blemishes. Blend outwards

~Apply BRONZER with bronzing brush to all outsides of the face and neckline. Include under the cheekbone

~Apply BLUSH to apples of the cheeks. BLEND into bronzer with circular motions with a big, clean powder brush

~Apply MASCARA to both sides of top lashes and to bottom, if desired.  Two coats are great as long as you wait a minute between coats. Brush out any clumps with a dry mascara wand or lash brush

~Apply COLOR LIPGLOSS in matte or shiny

The emphasis in this look is bright skin. If you want extra beautiful, you can add on from here…especially if it’s date night.

Good luck! Feel free to comment about your experience below.
