INFO & TIPS
The more prepared you are for your headshot and branding photo session, the better your session results will be. Hair and makeup, the clothes you wear and your attitude have a great impact on the outcome of your photos. From a casual look to a business look, the secret is to know your style and dress with confidence. Here are some tips on makeup and styling to get the best results possible during your photo session.
We highly recommend that you work with a professional hair and makeup stylist that is skilled with makeup for photoshoots. We work with a team of professionals that are skilled in delivering the best results for photography sessions.
If you choose to do hair and makeup yourself, aim for a natural makeup look that makes you look like the best version of yourself.
Stay away from using mineral makeup and makeup products with SPF, silica, titanium dioxide and zinc oxide as it can create foundation flashback which is a very unattractive glow and shine on the skin.
