MAKEUP FOR WOMEN
Here are some considerations regarding makeup for your headshot session:
Some women don’t wear much, or any, daily makeup. While the goal in your photos is to look clean and natural, most women will benefit from at least a light application of makeup. Remember that this is makeup for camera, and we want to highlight your features;
DO YOUR OWN MAKEUP
You will generally do your own makeup for auditions, so some actors choose to do the same for their photo session. If you are confident in your abilities, this is a viable option. One challenge in this case is that, without a makeup artist, mid-length and long hair will catch on your shoulders and wardrobe. Without a makeup artist, Brad will have to reach in and adjust your hair, interrupting the flow of your shoot. He does this frequently, but it’s just something to consider.
HAVE YOUR MAKEUP DONE PROFESSIONALLY
We recommend professional makeup for women. You have plenty to focus on during your shoot, and the professional knows how to apply makeup, specifically for camera. They will work with you and address your specific needs, and they stay through the session to help watch your hair, makeup, shine, and wardrobe. They are part of the energy of the shoot, and are great at helping you to relax and express yourself.
