Are you getting ready for a headshot session? Whether it’s for your business or your personal brand, we want to make sure you look your best! In this blog post, we’re going to give you some tips for achieving a natural makeup look.

When it comes to natural makeup, less is definitely more. You want to make sure your skin looks healthy and radiant, so start by using a good primer. This will help create a smooth canvas for the rest of your makeup. For foundation, we recommend using a light-coverage option and building it up in areas where you need it.

Next, it’s time to focus on your eyes. A simple way to make them pop is by using a nude eyeliner pencil on your lower lash line. This will help open up your eyes and make them look wider. For mascara, we recommend using a waterproof formula to avoid any smudging.
And when it comes to headshots, your eyebrows should be defined and groomed as it really helps frame your facial features.

Finally, don’t forget to add a pop of color with your lips. A sheer lipstick or lip gloss will give you a natural look that’s perfect for photos.

The question of how much makeup is too much makeup is a tricky one. After all, there are no hard and fast rules about what constitutes excessive makeup use. However, there are a few general guidelines that can help you determine if you’re wearing too much makeup. 

Ask yourself if your makeup is making you feel good about yourself. If you’re only wearing heavy makeup because you feel like you have to, it’s probably time to experiment with a more natural look. Finally, consider the reactions of those around you. If people are constantly commenting on your appearance or asking if you’re feeling okay, it may be time to tone down your makeup routine..or on the other end, create a look that highlights and defines your favorite features. 

Remember, the decision of how much makeup to wear is ultimately up to you. Just be sure to keep the above guidelines in mind to avoid going overboard.

If you’re looking for that dewy, glowy makeup look, you’re in luck. With just a few simple steps, you can fake a healthy complexion that looks like you’ve just had a facial. 

The key is to start with a good skincare routine. Make sure you cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize your skin before applying makeup. This will help create a smooth canvas for your foundation and concealer. 

When it comes to foundation, don’t be afraid to sheer it out. A light coverage foundation will give you a natural finish that won’t look cakey or heavy. Be sure to blends the edges well so there’s no line of demarcation. To add some luminosity, highlight the tops of your cheekbones, brow bones, and cupid’s bow with a shimmery powder or liquid highlighter. 

Then, just add a coat of mascara and some lipgloss and you’re good to go!

Should I wear eyeliner in my headshots? One of the most important things to remember when taking a headshot is that your goal is to look approachable and professional. And while there’s no hard-and-fast rule about whether or not to wear eyeliner, it’s generally a good idea to go for a more natural look. 

That being said, if you’re comfortable wearing a little bit of eyeliner in your everyday life, then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t do the same in your headshot. Just make sure that it’s applied evenly and that you don’t go overboard with the color. 

After all, you want your headshot to represent the best version of yourself, so don’t be afraid to experiment until you find the right look.
