So what’s the big deal about professional makeup? Maybe you’d like to book your senior Daydream Session, but aren’t sure about the makeup part. Here’s all you need to know! I followed Morgan at her hair and makeup appointment to get some shots of the process…
Professional hair and makeup are two key ingredients for a successful senior shoot! I’ve done the research to find a talented and experienced hair and makeup crew to ensure you look as beautiful as possible. Cameras can do tricky things to makeup, and without an expert application and professional product, makeup can look washed-out, caked-on, too-bright, or even invisible! There’s a certain formula and process for on-camera makeup, and I want to make sure you look simply smashing for your once-in-a-lifetime senior photo shoot.
You may hear “professional camera-ready makeup” and think of heavy or garish stage makeup (especially if you’re a parent of a senior girl!). That’s NOT what we’re talking about here. Your makeup artist will use your own preferences and style (see tip #7 below!) to work her magic. If you’re not keen on looking made-up, your makeup artist can produce a finished, polished look without the made-up feel…this is a delicate balance to be sure, and one best left to professionals! You can also go for a more dramatic or glamorous look, if that’s your style. Professional makeup will enhance and amplify your own personal look. Oh, and who couldn’t use a few extra lashes? Falsies are subtle but dramatic…and they’re included in your pro makeup session!
Professionally styled hair is also important! We want sleek, glossy hair with movement – not sticky or crunchy hair, or hair that looks over-styled. A professional can give you beautiful, natural-looking hair that will still give the WOW factor.
One very important element of professional makeup, as well as professional styled hair, is that it LASTS. We’ve all had makeup smudge and run in the humidity, and had our perfectly sleek hair become frizzy and flat. We do not want that for your senior photos, so we’ll leave it to the pros! Even shooting for hours in Nebraska heat and humidity, your hair and your face will look just as fabulous in your last photo as you do in your first. So fabulous, in fact, that you’ll probably want to set up a girls’ night out, or even a special date, after your shoot…because you’ll still look amazing!
And last but not least, when you know you LOOK your best, you will FEEL your best. (Isn’t that true?) That vibrant self-confidence will come through loud and clear in your photos. Morgan is a perfect example of this fact! She’s radiant, confident and ready for her closeups – and we haven’t even left the salon yet!
And for good measure, here’s one of my favorites from her shoot! This is one of the last ones from the day, and you can see how flawless she still looks!
