Head shot Photography Makeovers
What to expect when you get a makeover with your professional headshot.
Many ladies worry about being in front of the camera, but having a headshot should be a good and enjoyable experience. Often the very camera shy will say after their portrait with me, that it was actually very enjoyable and they really love their images.
So I love happy customers, but I’m always looking at ways to help my headshot clients prepare. Whether it’s advice on clothing (see my last blog from The Wardrobe Provocateur), or headshot checklists, I really like to find more ways to make your life as easy as possible when coming to me for your portrait.
That’s why I recently brought makeup artist Joanne Tweedy on board as an optional extra to your photo shoot. Joanne can give you a makeover and lets face it, a great opportunity for a pamper!
The make over takes about 20 minutes and is created to suit your style, even if you don’t normally wear much, or have a very natural look. Joanne can help your skin to glow so that you look amazing. I asked Joanne what are the benefits of having professional make up artist….
Having your makeup applied professionally makes a big difference as it gives perfect coverage and a polished, finished look giving your head shot portrait the edge.
A professional makeup artist will use the right makeup to suit the individual and have a huge range of colours and tones for that perfect look.
They will also know what things to avoid, for example some foundations give great coverage but you may get a lot of shine when photographed with flash, which doesn’t look good.
A makeup artist can be on hand to help perfect your look and do touch ups while on shoot. Or even a second make up style.
Louise, our headshot client went for 4 outfit changes and two completely different makeup looks. The first one was a natural, office style and the second one was more dressed up. Louise likes to use really dark makeup on her eyes so this look really suited her and we think she looks amazing!
Joanne runs her own business and works with lots brides but also fashion models too. If you’re on Instagram you should check her out @moomoohanhan
