Makeup for Pictures

So excited to be adding some new pictures tonight to the website!!!  Thank you to my model Nikki who did a great job and here's to always following your instincts!!!!  As we were preparing Nikki to have some very natural looks done and pictures taken, something wasn't "feeling" right.  After we shot a few of the more "natural" shots, which I assumed was more in miss Nikki's character to begin with...I could tell something wasn't working.  We finished those shots and I moved to a more dramatic eye and a totally nude lip.  In addition, we completely took her hair to a totally UNnatural place to work with the eyes and lips.  After the look was done...miss Nikki (the model) was MORE comfortable...almost like she had a character to play in front of the camera.  The extra details in hair and makeup photographed better and our model was more at ease...these things combined produced some AMAZING new pictures!!!  2 LESSONS in makeup for photos here folks...
2. Don't forget...makeup for film and photography are NOT THE SAME as your makeup for everyday!!! 
Thanks for some great shots Nikki!!!

I do agree with all of the ideas you've presented in your post. They're really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are too short for beginners. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.
