For perfect photography, here are some advice for perfect make up from professionals.
Lighten up. Always avoid too dark foundation shade. You must use a shade which is professionally matched to your skin tone as close to the day as possible.
Matte is must. Always stay away from shimmery powder for your cheeks, with no exceptions. For your eyelids, keep the gleam strictly on lids.
Primary focus. Basic coverage is essential for keeping makeup undamaged. It’s like the base coat on a manicure. Always use oil-free versions which are the best and also those for sensitive skin.
Say no… to SPF. Primer and foundation should be SPF-free. Formulas containing sunscreen cast a ghostly glow with the camera flash.
Line up. When comes to lining the eyelids, start from the center and continue your work to the outer edge. Remember that lining the entire lid will make the eyes to appear smaller. Use a slanted brush with a dark, not a black shadow to line lower lids.
More is more. A camera ﬂash will wash out colors. So do not be afraid by a dramatic ﬁnished look.
Blend, blend, blend. You must know that a quality set of brushes is always the key when it comes to concealer, eye shadow and cheek contouring. The camera ﬂash will highlight straight edges, creating a clown-like look, and un-blended concealer will highlight ﬁne lines.
Mellow yellow. To set makeup, choose a yellow powder rather than translucent. You can choose those with SPF formulas, translucent powders, which emit a white glow when photographed.
Natural. Always have makeup applied on your face in natural light. The natural light is the best indicator of how it will look when photographed.
Practice runs. Don’t try your product for the first time on the same day of the occasion. Previous consultation and trial runs are important to creating the perfect ﬁnal look.
