Take Care Of Your Skin Before a Photoshoot!

 Okay so now we’re gonna start on foundation, and like I said earlier this look is more matte. You don’t want anything shiny, dooey, iridescent cause the camera picks up everything. And if you use a shiny or dooey foundation your gonna look to glowy. So you want to keep to a matte, this is a pretty light foundation and it doesn’t have any iridescence to it. It’s completely, ooh I’m sorry, it’s completely matte, and you want to use a little more than you normally use for everyday purposes. And this is the time where you want to cover any blemishes.  This is the time where you use foundation all over the skin. You don’t just want to use it in certain little areas where you need it, you want it all over. You want your whole face to look smooth and blended. And because you’re gonna be on camera you want to use a little more than normal just to make sure everything is covered and everything looks smooth. If you don’t use enough makeup on camera you’re gonna really notice it. You’re gonna look like you have nothing on, and you’re not gonna like the way your pictures turned out. So even though you’re using natural makeup you just want to use a little more of it than normal. Under the eyes, never neglect under the eyes.

You can use your foundation as a concealer or if you have a separate concealer that’s fine also, it’s all personal preference. Make sure you take it down the neck just a tiny bit, just blend blend blend. Make sure it’s all blended in, you can always add more where needed. I like to go on the eyelid a little bit also just to make a nice clean pallet, clean base for the eyeshadow. Just make everything look really smooth and even. And then once the foundation’s on you just wanna powder your skin lightly just to help the foundation stay, and to make everything look smooth. You don’t want to use a tremendous amount of powder because you don’t want your skin to look powdery or dry, but just blend the powder. Buff it into the skin and it will just really smooth out the look and make the foundation stay. I like to powder the lips as well. Stay away from powder around the eyes, that can make the eyes look a little crappy or accentuate wrinkles. And there we go. Now we’re ready to apply some color.
