Make Up Tips for Photography

 


Visitors: 676

Photography make up is slightly different from daily make up applications. Here are some pointers -

Lighting:

  • Use natural lighting – for example, near a big window with lights coming in

  • If photography is taking place outdoors, do so around 4pm to 5pm, when the sun is about to set. Soft lighting makes a person better

Preparing the face:

  • Wash, exfoliate, tone and moisturize your face before applying make up

  • Oil control is very important. If you can, use oil free formulated products

  • Keep hair away from the face

  • To reduce puffy eyes, use Preparation H

Foundation:

  • Choose a thicker formulated foundation rather than the sheers ones that are used in daily applications so that all blemishes are covered easily

  • Blend foundation from chin to neck so that they are of the same colour

Powder:

  • Use lots of it, and reapply between shots, to create a mat finish look

Concealer:

  • 2 shades lighter than skin to cover blemishes and dark spots; apply before foundation application

Contouring:

  • Contour cheeks and eyes to create a sculpted look

  • Use foundation in a shade that is 2 to 3 shades darker than normal skin tone

Eyes:

  • Highlight eyebrow bones using light shadow to create lively eyes

  • Avoid eyeshadow that is too frosty or shimmery – it’ll appear shiny

  • Apply eyeliner with precision

  • Use waterproof mascara

  • Overall application needs to be than normal make up

Lips:

  • Use lipstick and liner of same colour, in a shade darker than natural lip colour
