Preparing A Model For Her First Photo-Shoot In Years

Preparing for a shoot is a lot of fun for me and I also try to make it fun for the model.  Our models name is Misty. So I scheduled a MAC Makeup class for the correct selection of products to use for the shoot.  First of all is picking out the ward robe for the photo-shoot. Then I like scheduling a MAC Makeup class with he model to ensure to have the correct foundations and concealers.  Also having the correct eye shadows and lipsticks is important to me also.  My client who provided the fashions is from Brazil. And she provided a large amount of beach wear and hats. She is a designer from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The wardrobe was from Chicme.com and also FashionNova.com.  For the makeup we used MAC Studio Fix for the Foundation number C3 and also Studio Fix Conceal and Correct Palette.  After applying the proper foundations and concealer we used the eye shadow palette Amber Times Nine for depth and highlights. And the finish the application with Mineralize Blush in a soft pink peach tone. And also contoured with Mineralize Skin Finished Bronzer. And Finishing with a nice  MAC Lipstick color TAUPE. The finished application was sprayed with MAC Prep and Prime setting spray.

 Also I did her hair color from a darker blonde base to a lighter blonde all over as she requested.  The products used for this shoot were from Jack Wynn Hair Color. And the client request a full all over highlight for her hair. The hair was in very good condition and I also shaped the hair design for her.  My customer had 0% grey in her hair. A mixture of textured weaves and balayage was used for this service. And also a low volume bleach for the lightening. Her natural base color is a level 7 Med Blonde. No toners were applied for this service.

Models Prep Your Lips Before Your Shoot!

One thing you don’t want during your photo-shoot is have your lipstick move all over.  And when you place your lipstick on, just like when you prime your face for your foundation. You must prep your lips. MAC Prep and Prime Lip is what I would recommend and go to for all my photo-shoots. A color free base to wear under lipstick. Adds light moisture, smooths and refines the lips. Improves the appearance of applied lip products.

There is no greasy feel to the product and just apply it while you are doing your foundation and then just gently pat your lips before applying your lip color.

  • Reduces lipstick feathering
  • Provides long-term hydration
  • Fragrance-free
  • Oil-free
  • Dermatologist tested

A lot of woman will place a chap stick on there lips to prime them. Which is a NO-NO. This will give you a oily appearance even when you pat the chap stick off. And the lipstick will not adhere to the lips. Don’t try this method use a primer. Another way of taking of dry flakes from the lips is use some scotch tape to the lips and this will also gently pull off the flaky skin. Also if you use a dark colored lipstick to dry lips, it will appear darker in certain areas because of flaking. So always use a primer for the lips.  This will also hydrate the lips also.

  • Apply a thin coating over entire lip area and over lip edges.
  • Follow with lip color.
  • If desired, line lips.
