The Right Makeup Application For A Photo Shoot

How do I apply makeup (foundation, powder, eyes, lips) for a photo shoot?


I will be photographed with a white backdrop and don't want to use too much or too little. The photos will be used online and for business cards.

Camille's Answer:

Applying makeup for a photo shoot isn't all that different from applying your regular makeup except that you want to go a little heavier with a bit more coverage for the shoot or you'll look washed out.

It's a very detailed process. Too detailed in fact for me to answer here.

So I will give you a link to a set of video tutorials I saw online just for this. Keep in mind that the model used here is Caucasian, but the theory of what they're doing is spot on for photo shoots.

Just follow along, use your own makeup colors and you'll look beautiful.
