My goal as a photographer is more than to provide my clients with beautiful photographs. Yes, that is the end goal, but as a photographer it is also my job to educate my clients on what it takes to capture the quality of photos that I provide. Soon after my clients book me for a photo session, the planning begins. I take time to provide recommendations for what to wear by suggesting colours that compliment one another and photograph well. I educate them on outfits, process, products and learn a lot about them and what they want to achieve from the session. Lastly, I highly recommend professional makeup application. I understand that a lot of women are able to apply makeup themselves, but I believe professional photo sessions should have slightly more than your normal everyday makeup routine. I suggest this for a few reasons.
A professional makeup artist knows how to even out skin tones, hide blemishes, and match makeup for your complexion. Have you every seen someone photographed and they look like their face colour do not match to other colour of the body? Perfect example of a situation that could be prevented with professional makeup application.
A professional makeup artist also has an eye for what will photograph well. From contour, highlight, to defining your brows they’ve got you covered. Beautiful eyes can definitely accentuate your beauty even more. Make up for young face is completely different to what is needed for a mature face. I can only trust my clients to the most skilled and professional make up artists I worked for before and can trust because I know they can make you look and feel extraordinary.
The use of professional grade cameras and lenses with the right light can make you look amazing. However, this equipment has the ability to pick up such great detail that it can accentuate problem areas as well. i.e. (blemishes, discoloration, under eye circles etc.
Lastly, it boosts your confidence and makes you feel photo ready!
3 reasons for professional make up artist for photo shoot:
1. HOW MAKEUP APPEARS IN PHOTOS IS VERY DIFFERENT THAN HOW MAKEUP APPEARS WHEN YOU WEAR IT EVERY DAY, HENCE EVERYDAY MAKE UP IS NOT SUITABLE
2. A MAKEUP ARTIST PHOTOSHOOTS READY WILL MAKE YOU LOOK AND FEEL CONFIDENT, BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING LIKE NEVER BEFORE
3. LOOK AT HAVING A PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP ARTIST AS AN INVESTMENT IN YOURSELF, AS YOU WILL SEE AND FEEL YOURSELF LIKE NEVER BEFORE AND EVEN BETTER! BE PAMPERED AS SOMETIMES WE NEED THESE DAYS FOR OURSELVES TO REMIND US THAT WE ARE BEAUTIFUL!
