Makeup application for photoshoots requires a thorough understanding of not only make up techniques but also the principles of photography. These principles include not only lighting, but a familiarity with space, color, lines and shapes as well. An understanding of these elements as well as the vision of the photographer or subject are essential. Professional makeup for photoshoots is an incredibly important part of the process. As a makeup artist, I am skilled at applying makeup for the camera which includes foundation matching as well as selecting colors that beautifully enhance the client's features while adding the perfect amount of highlight and shadow. Professional makeup application also increases the client's confidence, which is also vital in a successful photo session.
