Tips For Makeup and Makeup Artists


Proper Makeup as a Technique in Photography by San Antonio Photographer

There are two things that are required to capture the excellent shot. They are the talent of the photographer and the model. If one of these is missing, the images will never land on a magazine and will just be hidden in a drawer.

The photographer can control the lighting, the type of camera to be used on the photo shoot and the kind of film that will be great developed. The model has to show up for the event and a with a little magic from the assistant transform the face with makeup.

Cosmetic products can truly make a person standout. The exact same beauty products that can be bought at the supermarket are also used by people during a photo shoot. The difference is that the model has two or three assistants putting this all on him or her.

There are a handful of things that the model needs to look good in front of the camera.

The first is the concealer. Everyone has a few dark spots and applying just a little can cover these areas until the photo shoot is over.

Next is the foundation. This should be applied all over the face. This will make the skin look smooth and hide those pimples and freckles that no one wants to see.

Powder is another essential part of putting on make-up. This should be focused on the forehead, cheeks and chin, mainly because light captures these areas very well especially when model looks into camera and smiles.

The eyebrows might be enhanced using a pencil or a brush. This will make the person look sexy as if the model is looking deep into the reader’s eyes.

Eye shadows are also another critical component. The right color will depend on the facial skin of the model. The assistant should take care not to put a lot of or too little given that this could ruin the photo.

Photo shoots are long and if the model is very popular, the fatigue of going from one location to the next can be covered by using some eyeliner. This really should be placed under the eye and on the edges to prevent eye bags from appearing on the images.

The absolute most crucial thing for makeup which is usually the finishing touch is the lipstick. The assistants can also do this using a pencil and some lip gloss.

Makeup can be done in just a few minutes. This magic can bring the model to life and capture the eyes of the readers for the product being supported.
