Best makeup for pictures
Posted 07 May 2007 - 09:48 AM
Aaron and I are getting our engagement pics taken this coming weekend and I am looking for suggestions for my makeup. I am not one who wears a lot of makeup, but of course I want it to look great for the pics. I was just wondering if you guys have any suggestions on what brand/type of foundtaion to get that will look nice in the pics and won't look oily or anything. I have even thought of going to Macy's or something to get it done there but am not sure if I will have enough time because the pics are in my hometown and where my parent's live, which is 2 hours away from our house.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!

Edited to Add: As for the foundation - I actually love the way that the mousse foundation looks and feels. I think its called Dream Matte Mousse? I'm not sure, I'll go home a check for sure, but it really looks and FEELS good!

For one wedding I got my make-up done at the Clinique counter...for another wedding I got done at MAC. Even though MAC carries darker, more dramatic colors, I ended up looking very natural at both places.

1. Make sure you have good foundation...Jess is right, certain formulas do not photograph well and will make you look really washed out, etc. Someone at a makeup counter or Sephora will be able to reccomend something good to you. I know MAC Studio Fix (pressed powder) photographs well...I'll sometimes brush that on over my normal foundation (Stila Illuminating Foundation or Stila Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer) just to mattify and get more "pic ready".
2. Define your eyes. No, you don't need to do any crazy colors or anything...but maybe just have someone show you what technique really enhances your eyes best. And get some good mascara! :-) Ooh! And an eyelash curler...love those!!
3. Lips...again, not necessarily a crazy color or anything like that...but just something that looks pretty on you and helps highlight your smile, compliment your skin tone etc.
Those would be my main concerns. . .And just keep it simple, you do want to look like YOU!
