EYES: Let's start off with an eyelid primer because you don't want any greasy, oily creases on those lids. Any kind of primer will work. I really like Urban Decay's Primer potion. It's kind of pricey so check out my post here and scroll down to the primer part, I share some other primers that are a little less in price but still work awesome! After I prime my lids I like to dab a sponge in some loose powder because powder is really going to help with setting in that primer on your lids and also help you with blending the eyeshadow. Also, it will help with reducing oily eyelids for the rest of the day and for when you are getting your pictures taken. Powder is your best friend when getting your pictures taken. The less shine and oil the better!
If you are getting bridal, senior, family, etc pictures its important to stick to more natural eyeshadow colors that look best with your coloring rather than bright colors. You want to stay away from anything glitter or frosted...stick to more matte and shimmer or satin finishes. A way to really make your eyes pop is to load up on mascara and really making your lashes big!
Brows: Groom your eyebrows! Cut them, tweeze them, shape them up so that they can look clean and ready for the camera! Your brows really put the whole face and look together when they are groomed nicely. Just follow your natural shape. You can also use a matte eye shadow of the same color as your brow with an angled brush to fill in any sparse parts or light colored brows.
Lips: One way to really add some volume and plumpness to your lips is to dab a little bit of lip gloss on the center of your lips. You want to make sure to line your lips with lip liner so that your lip color doesn't run away off your lips. Look for more of a wet lip gloss rather than a glittery matte one. You can also use a shimmery highlight eyeshadow color to put a little just above your top lip on your cupids bow, this will create a highlight and make your lips look great!
Now that you have all of the tips to create picture perfect makeup you can go get your pictures taken and feel confident and beautiful! We all want to look our absolute best when we get our pictures taken whether its professional or not. Hopefully these photo ready tips will help!! =)
Have a great weekend everybody!!!!
