No matter who you are, we all have days where we don’t feel our best selves, maybe we’re lacking a bit of confidence, or we’re self-conscious about a spot or blemish. For some of us, make-up is a great way to give ourselves the boost we need and make us feel more confident in our own skin. Book online today to boost your confidence with our makeover photoshoot.
Do I have to wear makeup to a photoshoot?
We definitely don’t think makeup is a must-have, and if you’re happier and more confident without then more power to you, but we understand that for many people that’s not the case which is why our Makeover Photoshoots include makeup and dry hair styling from a professional hair and makeup artist, so you don’t have to lift a finger and can rest assured that you’re in great hands.
Whether you prefer a personal makeover or opt to share it with a friend, sister, daughter or mother, Photographic Synergy has you covered. Whatever the occasion why not boost your confidence with our Makeover Photoshoot.
What difference can makeup do for photography
Professional photographers should always use different lighting, lenses and angles to get the best out of a photoshoot, but make-up can also play a part in helping to fix shiny or uneven skin tone, or help hide dark circles under the eyes, which can all unfortunately be highlighted by a camera lens.
It’s important to use the right make-up and techniques to get a flawless finish as lighting used in makeover photoshoots can reflect differently depending on the make-up used, and the camera can pick up any make-up imperfections such as improperly blended concealer, or too much lip gloss.
Our professional makeup artist, Jade Walker has over 10 years’ experience in hair styling and makeup with clientele including The BBC, Channel 4 and Sky TV. Jade has worked with numerous celebrities such as Pixie Lott, Kasabian, The Rolling Stones, Eddie Izzard, Alex Zane, Carol Vorderman and Rob Curling.
The right make-up can even make a difference to black and white photographs, by helping to create dimension and avoid the photograph looking ‘flat’.
Is a ‘less is more’ approach best when it comes to make-up?
We’ll use all the tricks in the book to make your photographs as beautiful and vibrant as possible, but the reality is that cameras just cannot capture true-to-life colour. This is one of the reasons you’ll often find that make-up used for photoshoots is much more ‘heavy’ than normal every day makeup. Exaggerated make-up translates much more through the camera lens, so although it might seem like too much, it results in stunning photographs with stronger colour and vibrancy.
How can makeup be used in a photoshoot
A makeover photoshoot is really personal to you and we can work together to help you achieve the images you have in mind. Whether you want some before and after photography, a super glam or theatrical look, or something more natural, we’ll help you figure out the right looks for you and how to achieve them.
