tips on hair and makeup

⋙make sure your skin is matte. shiny skin can make you look like you have really oily skin, reflect too much light, and be distracting.

⋙apply more blush, contouring, brows and lips than you usually would. lack of color will make you look washed out.

⋙make your eyes pop by applying eyeliner on the top and bottom lashes. at least two coats of mascara or false lashes are a must. you really connect with your audience when your eyes stand out.

⋙do your hair the way you’d normally do it while wearing the clothes you choose. no fancy up dos with jeans, no pony tails with evening gowns, etc.

⋙if getting a haircut or new hairdo, make your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to your portrait session. fresh hair cuts rarely look their best the same or next day. ladies need time to practice working it, men need it to grow out just a little. allow some time to live with your new look before your portrait session.
