tips for a successful senior portrait session

professional hair and makeup for senior pictures

Professional hair and makeup? Trust me, you want it! It may be tempting to do your own makeup, but allowing a professional makeup artist to do your makeup for your senior photos will ensure you get the most out of your session. Photo makeup is very different from every day makeup. Professional makeup artists are trained to know exactly how to apply makeup so it looks best on camera, doesn’t smudge, and stays put (especially during the hot summer months when makeup tends to melt off!).

I include professional hair and makeup with two of my session options (the Deluxe and Classic sessions), so it really makes it a no-brainer. Plus, it adds so much to the experience. I mean, who doesn’t like to be pampered?! Leaving it to the professional will eliminate the stress of which foundation to use, how to do your eyeliner, which lashes you should get, etc. and you’ll show up for your session feeling amazing and confident. And THAT will show in your photos!

I hope you found this helpful! If you haven't chosen your senior photographer yet, and would like to chat about a senior session, just let me know!
