What exactly makes for perfect branding photo makeup? Read on.
I just want skin that looks like real skin.
I don’t want to look like I’m wearing makeup.
Some women that I work with really want to appear as though they’re not wearing anything at all, and that’s totally ok if it aligns with their brand. An excellent makeup artist can apply makeup that doesn’t look like makeup but enhances your natural beauty (enlarges eyes, enhances cheekbones, brings out lips and cheeks etc).
***All of these eye makeup looks include false lashes yet some look far more dramatic ‘lashwise’ than others.
***All of these eye makeup looks look incredibly natural on camera, the key is shadow placement and excellent blending.
***The same pinks, mauves and browns work perfectly on every eye colour to create a soft natural look.
Blue eyeshadow, no?
To lash or not to lash. That’s not really a question.
If you’re getting brand photos done with Tilly it is highly recommended that you have lashes applied during your session with our makeup artist. There are thousands of different types of lashes and not all will make you look like a cast member of Priscilla Queen of the Desert. The reason we want false lashes is quite simply that they open the eye and draw the viewers eye to your eyes. So it’s definitely possible to have a subtle false lash look, but it’s important to have them.
Advanced hair, yeah yeah!
If your hair is pulled back there will be many angles where you look, sorry to say it, bald as an egg. Letting your hair down will frame your face and ensure people know you have hair from every angle that we shoot at.
***Regardless of hair colour soft waves, or straightened will look best.
***Try to avoid flat on top hair as this can make your head appear wider and shorter.
Preppity Preppity prep.
Please avoid having a hair cut, or get your nails done on the day of or day before your session. A few days grace will make sure your hair looks fresh, but not freshly done.
