Getting the Most Out of Your Professional Portraits

It can be tempting to do your own makeup, but if you want that killer look, hiring a professional makeup artist is critical. Hiring a pro ensures you get the most out of your professional portraits. A photo records a memory, and that memory comes with a price owing to fact that you’re paying for the photoshoot. If you want to make the memory a remarkable one, don’t skimp on makeup, let your photoshoot go smoothly with perfect make up application from the skilled hands of a professional makeup artist.

Why You Need a Professional Makeup Artist

Yes, photoshop exists, but those touch-ups can be really obvious. Photoshop can also come with an extra cost to it. Why go through that extra cost when you can hire a pro to give you a natural look? Hiring a professional makeup artist ensures that you get a professional opinion.

Lighting is key when it comes to photography; finding the right makeup that fits the lighting condition can be very hard. By simply explaining the conditions to a pro, he/she can find the best fit and applications for you, eventually turning your photo shoot into a memorable occasion.

All other reasons aside, stress is the one thing everyone wants to avoid on important occasions like this. Finding the right foundation, eyeliner, or lipstick can be very stressful to you. No one wants to walk into a photo shoot with a stressful mind as this can show up in your photos and spoil your shot. It’s okay to kick back once in a while and let someone else do the work from time to time, especially if that person is a skilled artist who has the job description in their DNA. At Studio M, we work with professional makeup artists who remain on-hand during your photoshoot for touch-ups.

If you crave perfection for your photos, then come to terms with hiring a pro makeup artist. Who doesn’t want their photoshoot to be absolutely perfect? Since most of the day will be spent smiling from ear to ear, you will need a sculptor who can ensure that you maintain that beauty in every single shot … someone who will ensure that every perfect pose will be matched with an even greater look … someone who can add the illusion of depth in a 2D photo. If you do it on your own, you might end up having a flat image in your photos.

Experimenting With Different Looks

If you are into trying new things, then you might have fun with different makeup styles during your photoshoot. Trying new looks gives your portrait different feelings and emotions. You never know what you might like until you try it, and fun new looks can be done perfectly with a professional makeup artist. So, if you are the bold type, here are some of the most trending looks you can try:

Understated glitter

Be careful to use this with restraint. Don’t go crazy and use it all over your face. Dabbing a pinch on the eyelids and lips can go a long way in making you look fabulous in your photos.

Cat eye for size

Shaping the cat eye can be difficult, but with the help of a pro you can bring out that wild side you have inside with slick beautiful eyes that will grab the attention of anyone looking at your photo.

Move away from matte

Glossy formulas have made a comeback in the recent months. Gloss lipstick can instantly refresh a signature look and make your photos pop out by making your lips look juicy.

There you go! these are the best of the best new trends you should definitely try out. Remember to seek a pro makeup artist to make your photo shoot a fun and relaxing experience with the added advantage of better photos.
