Makeup Tips For Photography
While proper lighting and a good camera are both factors of a good photo, there are some tricks you can use to look your very best in front of the lens...Say cheese!

1) Prime Time- Use a primer before applying foundation. Find one that has light reflecting minerals. Not only will it even out your skin tone but the light from the camera flash will give you a pretty glow instead of spotlighting every little blemish.

2) Go High Def- For more serious pics, like prom or engagement shots, splurge on an HD foundations. These were originally used by actresses and news anchors on HD TV because they hide EVERYTHING.

Try: Makeup For Ever HD Foundation, 40$

3) Ideal Conceal- Choose the perfect concealer for your skin tone. If it is too light you will have halos around your eyes, if it is too dark you will look like you have dark circles. The brand suggested is perfect because it self-adjusts itself to your perfect shade!

4) Color Up- Opt for both blush and bronzer. It gives your face more dimension. Using just one or the other came make your face look flat on film. Use bronzer on your cheekbones and the outside of your face then add a light dusting of blush on the apples of your cheeks.

5) Fake It- Try a pair of falsies...Although you may think they look a bit too fake in real life they look awesome on camera. Try them once and you may never go without them again.

6) Smile Bright- If you have time to whiten your chops before the photo session then try Crest quick strips. In just two hours you will notice a huge difference. If its an impromptu session then try a lip gloss with a blue tint like CoverGirl Wetslicks Amazemint in Happy Hour. The tint magically makes your chompers look whiter.

Try: Crest 3D White 2-Hour Express, $52

7) Shine-Free- If you keep piling on powder your face is going to look dull and cakey in pics. Instead use oil blotting sheets to sop up excess oil.

Try: Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets, $5.99

-If possible try to apply your makeup in natural light. Some indoor lights can wash you out causing you to apply makeup to heavily.

-Try a few drops of Visine prior to the photo to banish any redness in your eyes. Having bright, clear eye whites makes you look awake and alert and much better then eyes with redness which can make you look tired and ill.

-Practice smiling and different head angles in the mirror before picture day. Figuring out how to make a natural looking smile can take a bit of prep.

-Don't slouch! Hold your head high, look straight into the camera and smile.

-Apply your blush and eye makeup a little heavier than normal but neatly and precisely.

-Try to avoid frosted lip colors entirely because they hardly show up on film and will give the illusion that you are not wearing lip color at all.

-Lastly, be sure and take your makeup case with you to your photo shoot. You will need to touch up your makeup during the photo shoot and will always need to add powder as the day moves on.
