Favorite Makeup for Photographs

* This is on today, but I thought you guys might enjoy it too!  Remember your blog doesn’t have to just be sneak-peaks!  It can be all kinds of fun posts that inspire your target client. 

I love makeup… I always have!  I’m certainly no makeup artist, but I’ve had my makeup done by enough of them to have learned a thing or two.  I thought it would be fun to share my personal favorites for picture day with you.

1. Dior Airflash Foundation
, $62,  Whenever I have a big day, this is what I use!  My sister introduced me to it when I was in Seattle  as a speaker for The Chic Retreat. Airflash is ideal for pictures because it’s not going anywhere! The bottle will last about a month with everyday use.  I’m afraid it’s too much for my skin everyday, so I only use it when I need it. 

2. Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks, $25,  One of my biggest tips for makeup is to make sure you’ve got your “lips” in a pocket so that you can reapply. With the pot rouge, you’ve got your lips and your cheeks in your pocket so that you can keep the dewy  look you want. I love Calypso Coral. 

3. Victoria’s Secret Flawless Airbrush Beach Sexy Instant Bronze Spray, $15,  Sometimes you just don’t have time to get a tan before photos. With this spray, I have instant color and if I applied it too heavily or don’t like the look, there is no commitment; it’s off with water! I love this spray for my arms and legs… but not my face. 

4. Kate Somerville Tanning Towlettes, $48 – $75,  I love how easy these are to apply! It’s like a wet wipe from The Crab Shack… except, instead of trying to get the smell of the ocean off of me, I’m applying the golden sun onto me. I see really good results after two applications. 

5. Rembrandt Stain Dissolving Strips, $22,  I use a professional teeth whitening kit from my dentist, but the reviews say that this one from the drugstore is a great buy. I like to start whitening 3 to 7 days before my photo shoot, but if I can only get one in, I’m at least getting surface stains off. 

6. M·A·C Prep + Prime Eye, $18.5,  When you’re getting your picture taken, you don’t want your makeup fading before the last shot. I love M·A·C’s eye primer because it allows me to maintain that more dramatic look on my eyes. 

7. Dior Addict Gloss, $29.5, Don’t go for a nude, blends-into-your-skin lip color. Instead, add a little to a lot of pop – so that your femininity really shines. I love using a lipstick or stain and then applying a gloss like Dior’s Addict. (Shown in Paradise)
