Why makeup? Have you ever had your makeup done professionally? Years ago, I used to wonder what all the fuss was about, but recently, I decided to go to a professional for makeup for a photo session and find out for myself. I have to say I really enjoyed it.
First of all, it was fun! Who doesn't like being pampered and made to look her very best? But it also helped me feel beautiful and confident. And I cannot overstate this. Feeling beautiful and confident will make your portraits even more spectacular. Sometimes it takes people a little while to get up their nerve for a portrait session. But when you get your makeup professionally done, by someone who knows how to accentuate your best features, you can feel confident right off the bat.
And I LOVED getting fake eyelashes. I had never done this before. The makeup artist I use, Donna Cooper, does fake eyelashes as part of her makeup for high school seniors. She works on a lot of high school students and does them very tastefully. They make such a huge difference! Normally, you can barely see my eyelashes at all, so this was a big deal.
I don't want to show your pictures of myself, here, though I did love my makeup. I want to show you a beautiful high school student I photographed recently. I sent her to the same makeup artist I used:
Isn't she beautiful? I so love the bold, red lipstick and how radiant her skin looked! Your makeup would be customized to suit your style.
