Tips On Applying Makeup Before A Photo-Shoot

Everybody wants to look great in photos and pictures. Unfortunately not everyone is blessed with a natural beauty – some of us have to work harder in order to look great in photos, some have to conceal blemishes /pimples, discolorations, large pores/, other have to change their hairstyle and clothing. If you are going to be photographed do not forget to take your makeup bag with you as you will need a few makeup products.

Here you can read about the simple tricks you can do to look great in photos.


The professional makeup artists highly appreciate the healthy, clear and naturally beautiful skin. But if your skin isn’t flawless you will have to use a few makeup products to achieve this. Every makeup artist use a makeup primer / a makeup base/. A good makeup primer will hide imperfections like, large pores, small pimple, skin discolorations, spots, freckles and so on. There are even eyelid primers that conceal the yellowing hints under your eyes.

The darker the circles under your eyes are, the thicker the concealer should be. To hide puffy bags apply the concealer only over the darker parts. Never smear the concealer, simply use your finger tips to apply it with light movements.

If you want to look bronzed never use a darker foundation to achieve it. Use a light bronzing product and apply it over your cheeks, nose, chin and forehead. You had better use a bronzing powder that comes as a spray as it will give you a more natural look.


Your best choice will be a translucent powder. If you want to use a light reflecting powder you should be very careful – never apply face powder with light reflecting particles at the center of your face. Always apply the powder with a big, round powder brush, this way you will be able to apply it evenly and flawlessly.


Applying eyeshadows is not a muct if you want to look flawless in the photos. If you are going to apply eyeshadows you had better use light colors – blue, white, pink, golden, silver, brown, greenish. Apply the shadows only in the center of the eyelids.
If you want to make your eyes appear bigger you should apply light eyeshadows only at the inner rims of your eyes, line the lower lashline with a light eyeliner.

Even if your skin isn’t oily it can appear very oily in the photos. That’s why you should use matifying products.
