So in this recent mini series 'getting ready for your photoshoot' we've covered off the two questions,what kind of photos do you really need and what to wear to your photoshoot. Today, I'm sending some make-up love. I asked one of my go-to make-up artists, Ashlee of Ashelee Anderson Make-up to share five of her 'top tips' for prepping for a photo shoot.


PREPARE AND PRIME

Skin preparation is important to look amazing in photos. Make sure you cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise. If you have the time, put on a hydrating face ask in the morning, it will make all the difference! I love the face sheet masks by ‘The face shop’.
Priming the skin helps to give a perfect base for your makeup. It helps it to adhere and last the distance. I love Smashbox photo finish foundation primer and Latonas Re-tex primer.
 

PROPERLY MATCH YOUR FOUNDATION

This is SO important! If you don’t have the correct match you can look older, sick and dull in photos. I like to match my foundation to my chest and the side of my neck to ensure that once applied it blends through.

AVOID SUNSCREEN PRODUCTS

I would never normally tell people to avoid sunscreen, (gosh darn you sun and your ageing rays!) but when you are going to be hopping in front of the camera its better to avoid it. Sunscreen causes a shine when the light reflects off your face in the pictures. It can be very unflattering.

CONTOUR AND HIGHLIGHT

Contouring doesn’t need to be scary! Make sure you use a colour that doesn’t throw any red tones. Its best to use taupe-y brown tones that are matte. This way you can sculpt your face to look how you want.
When you are using a highlighter, remember that features will be brought forward. If you don’t like a certain feature on your face, don’t highlight it.
 

PLAY UP YOUR EYES

I LOVE to enhance peoples eyes by applying mascara as close to the lash line as possible. Make sure you wiggle the brush right into the lash bed to place as much product there as you can. If you are feeling adventurous, add some lashes! You will be amazed how much difference a few individual lashes can make!

So there you go. Not only are you ready to DIY your own make-up next time you have a photoshoot. BUT... now you're Christmas selfie ready too :)
