I am here to give tips on doing makeup for photoshoot. Especially for fashion shoot.
- Always match your skin to your foundation! Avoid foundation or powder with any SPF in them[titanium dioxide], and silica powder[HI DEF powder]. Why? Most celebrity red carpet makeup mishaps, the ghost halo or whitey patches on face, are caused by those 2. Titanium and silica are photographed pure white in their true form.
- Minimal powder! With a stand still photography, it's nicer to not put on full matte face. By doing so, it will make the face makeup appear more 'skin like'. Powder only on the center perimeter of the face, and let the rest of the face unpowdered. Please no flat matte powder for touching ups. It will cake up the face. Translucent or colorless powder is the best, and lightly dust over the T-zone to knock off any shine.
- Prep your skin well! Prepping the skin is essential. Clean the skin from dirts, exfoliating if needed, and moisturizing. PICK ONE! Your skin only need moisturizer, or makeup primer. Piling those two can resulting to quick makeup meltdown(unless your skin is really dry). Depending on your goal, there are tons of makeup primer to choose from. Matte finish, moisturizing, glowing finish, and color correcting ones too. With good prepping, we can cut so much time for touch ups throughout photoshoot. Prep the lips too, betchesss!
- Water, smudge, and crease proof. Prime the eyelids to avoid creasing. You can apply it on the under eyes too, to prevent your concealer creases. Waterproof and smudgeproof mascara is the best for photoshoot. Its waxy consistency keeps the curl more longer than regular mascaras.
- Setting mists! If you put too much powder on, mist some refreshing spray on to knock down the powdery look. Set using oil control setting spray at the end of makeup process. It does the job(oil control for couples of hours), and EVERY setting spray that I've tried will leave a sheen on top of makeup. That is the dewyness all we need.
