Doing makeup for photographs is a little different than every day makeup. Some things look great in person but don't translate well in pictures. Here are a few makeup tips to help you look your best when you are photographed:
1. Use matte colors - Although shimmer can look great when applied properly, if you are a little unsure about what to do, it's always safe to go with matte colors. Matte makeup won't reflect light, making it easy to apply and easy to photograph.
6. Apply your makeup in natural light - When you put on your makeup, sit by a window or in a room with a lot of natural light. This will give you the best idea of what your makeup really looks like, and how it will look in the pictures.
7. Wax - makeup does not adhere well to peach fuzz. Whatever you normally wax on your face, wax it before your pictures. I suggest waxing at least 48 hours before your pictures to give enough time for any redness and swelling to go down.
