Senior Pictures Los Angeles
Those of you who were lucky enough to get in on our 60% off May discount are asking for tips on how to do makeup for your senior portraits So, below you’ll find one of our favorite natural makeup tutorials. The makeup is done by a high school girl with products that most of you already have. You’ll notice that the makeup is little punched up beyond “natural”, but when shooting pics in full length & even 3-quarter, you really want to make sure the eyes pop. Using neutral tones & sticking to a simple black top liner & soft subtly smokey under liner, your eyes pop without looking overly made up. SKIP THESE STEPS: 2 items she applies really don’t work for senior pics though & you should steer clear – the white liner in the inner rim of the eye often washes away with blinking, & can sometimes smear a bit with the under eyeliner. And it doesn’t look that natural…. Also, the highlighter she uses toward the end of the video on her upper cheekbones is very often “bad for camera”. What looks dewey and glowy in person, can look sweaty & glaring on camera. Stick to MATTE powder, MATTE bronzer as well to avoid having a shiny face. Hope this helps those of you who’re getting that awesome 60% off!
And for the rest of you, we STILL HAVE 40% OFF IN JUNE & 20% OFF IN JULY!!!!
Below is an example of some of our favorite Natural Makeup 🙂 Actor Katrina Law shot these in LA with makeup artist Karishma Ahluwalia, & we thought she achieved a perfect makeup look for each. The left image is a little edgier, but without going over the top. The lips & face were kept very natural, letting the eyes take center stage. The image on the right is classic natural makeup. The apples of the cheeks pop & the eyes have only a little neutral shadow for depth. Katrina doesn’t need much, so the makeup artist let her natural beauty shine through 🙂
