Makeup for Outdoor Photo-shoots

Wearing the right makeup in front of the camera is essential. The wrong foundation can make your skin tone look washed out or uneven, and failing to properly highlight features like your eyes, can make photos turn out flat. The key to looking good in front of the camera, especially outdoors, is to wear a look which is natural, and not too heavy or dramatic. Spread a thin layer of moisturizer all over your face. This will help to create a base for the foundation, which will allow it to go on more smoothly.

Select a foundation which is very close to your natural skin tone. Avoid foundations which contain SPF, as these foundations, though they protect the skin from UV rays, are reflective and will make your face appear much whiter than the rest of your skin.  Apply the foundation all over your face, including on your eyelids and lips. Use your fingers to apply the foundation, as this will give you a coverage which is not too heavy. Blend the foundation fully, making sure to pay particular attention to the jaw line.

Select a concealer which closely matches your skin tone. Using the applicator, dab the concealer underneath the eyes and on any areas where you have blemishes, dark patches or any other marks. Gently rub the concealer into the skin using your fingers.

With a powder brush, apply a loose powder, which matches your skin tone, to your forehead, nose, mouth area and chin. This will take away any excess shine and prevent your skin from reflecting the flash of the camera. Blend the powder by using the brush in a circular motion.

Lightly color in your eyebrows using a brow pencil that matches the color of your eyebrows. This will help to give the brows definition and frame the eyes. Using an eye-shadow brush, sweep a light neutral-color eye-shadow, such as cream, beige or brown depending on your skin color, all over your eyelid, from your lash line to the bottom of your brow.

Apply an eye-shadow that is a shade darker than the one you used before along the crease of your eyelid and blend it thoroughly. This darker shade will contour the eyes and make them stand out more in the photographs.

Apply a thin line of black liquid eyeliner all along the lash line and use a black mascara on the eyelashes to add volume.

Choose a lipstick one or two shades darker than your natural lip color, and select a lip liner which closely matches this. Line your lips with the lip liner, closely following the natural line of your lips. Lip liner is needed to define the lips. Apply the lipstick carefully straight from the tube.

Set you makeup next with a setting spray.

I get a lot of question from clients who will ask me in the salon during their appointment. ‘Is it better to flat-iron the hair with a hair spray?”

I recommend using hair spray on the hair when using a flat-iron or a curling iron. Preferably an aerosol type of spray. I have found that the use of a pump-action spray has too much “Gum” and also too much “Water” in the product. Also a lot of consumers need to know that the temperature of the flat-iron and also the curling iron should fluctuate during the straightening process and also the curling process. You should not use a high temperature on blonde hair that is artificially lightened. Especially when bleach has been used. Thick coarse hair will need a higher temperature when curling the hair. And hair that has been lightened with a bleach should need to have extra attention to it when curling.  Pre-lightened or bleached hair should also have some type of spray added to the section before curling. Make sure your sections are of the same size. A thicker section will give you a looser curl. If that is what you want. When you are finished styling the hair also always use a light condition cream throughout the hair for added softness. This will take away from the crispness of the hair spray. But the hair spray will also give you a firmer hold to the hair.
