How to apply makeup before a photo session
First of all, before choosing a make-up for a photo session, you should note and take into account some features of your appearance, as well as try to imagine and understand what desired effect you want to achieve. It should be noted that for each time of day the appropriate style is used. For example, evening makeup is unlikely to be appropriate in a strict office. As well as vice versa. On the right make-up before the photo shoot will be discussed in this short article.
So, in order to properly apply makeup, you should adopt a few tips:
1 Using a tone foundation of any kind is best to use a sponge. The base, applied with fingertips, makes the makeup uneven and careless.
2 Carefully ensure that, when applying the tonal base, there are no sharp boundaries and transitions along the lines of the cheekbones, nose, forehead and cheeks.
3 Powder should be applied with a special brush. Movement should be light and uniform from top to bottom.
4Do not use too light base, it gives the face an unnatural pallor and fatigue. The main criterion when choosing color makeup is natural skin color.
5 The line with which you are going around the eyes should not be too greasy. The fat eyeliner visually reduces the eyes and gives your face a tired expression.
6 Do not put too much shadow on the eyelids. A thick layer looks messy, and besides emphasizes wrinkles.
7 To make your makeup look natural and vibrant, just emphasize one detail, for example, the eyes. Lips can be left neutral or vice versa.
You should always consider the purpose of makeup and do not forget about age. Imagine how the face of an older woman with a bright artificial blush will look like in the daytime. Given that the same makeup can be used in the evening for going to the theater or visiting the gala evening. Always observe the measure in the application of paints, remember that a large layer of paints does not give beauty and youth.
Five make-up mistakes
American makeup artist Elke von Freudenberg (Elke Von Freudenberg) identifies 5 major makeup errors and fights them with all his might.
1 Too much blush. Blush should look fresh and natural. Take a closer look. If you look like you can quickly tint lips and eyelashes and run out of the house – it means that you have done a good job with rouge. The best color for blush is not traditional fuchsia. Try something with a soft touch, something peach. This color will refresh a lady of any age.
2 Blue shadows a la the sixties. Those who still use them are sure that it suits them, because someone once praised this color. Yes, the color is beautiful. But you don’t want all your beauty to be only in the color of the shadows. You need to think about appearance in general. When I work with photo models, I am satisfied with my work, when people admire photography as a whole, and not just my part of the work.
3 Celadon, dark blue, any blue. Everything blue, dark blue, greyish-blue around the eyes actually “draw” dark circles under the eyes. Try something warmer. Chestnut, bronze shadows and eyeliner – much better. Believe me.
4 “You look tired. Are you healthy? ”Have you heard this? If you are asked this question, and you are not tired and feel fine, your cosmetics may be to blame. Wrong selection of cosmetics can make the skin look tired. How? Colors that contain gray shades: grayish-pink blush, pinkish-purple lipstick, grayish eye shadows; even the makeup base may be greyish. Gray creates the illusion of an unhealthy look. To see the true color, apply a little bit of any makeup on white paper. What color do you see? Gray? Get rid of. It’s amazing how many women rush to the south and to fitness clubs hoping to stop looking tired. And actually cosmetics are to blame.
5 Bright lips. Circle lips does not mean to make them bigger. Moreover, you will look like a clown. How to create the illusion of plump sponges? Color and shine. Start with a light color, something like flesh. Now pick up the pencil of the same color or 2 tones darker. Circle the lips exactly along the contour and not a millimeter further. Then add shine. Glitter will make the lips luminous and plump. There are so many opportunities to make mistakes in the world that you should not make more of them. From 5 of them, we just saved you.
