Makeup Ideas for Photoshoots

Makeup application is in important component of a photoshoot. As far as possible, I always insist that customers not only have their makeup done, but have it done professionally by a makeup artist. Makeup artists are well trained and can apply makeup much better than the average person. They are also very creative individuals that can help improve a photoshoot. I always consult my makeup artists long before a shoot takes place, in this way I can brief her on what kind of shoot we are doing, genre, colours, styles, etc. Based on this information, a makeup artist will formulate a plan, choose the appropriate colours, products and style of makeup so that it fits in with both the photographer’s and customer’s vision for the shoot. Another important reason for using a professional makeup artist is that they understand how to apply makeup for photography, in many ways this is different to the day to day application that most women are used to.

 I hope in this article to give you some makeup ideas for photoshoots, ideas that will get you thinking about how you can use makeup to improve your photshoots with me.

 One of the first considerations that you should take in mind is how much makeup you are comfortable with. Other things that should influence you decision in this regard is the style and genre of the photoshoot, and to some degree your age. Younger skin can handle a lot more makeup than older ones. Makeup application can start from natural, which looks like there’s very little to no makeup applied, all the way to a full on glamour look with dark, smoky eyes.
