Skincare

Headshots look best when they are natural, so go easy on the make up! My lighting is great at reducing small wrinkles and shadows, so Stick to a light foundation base with very minimal eye make up. Avoid bright colours around the eyes, it can distract and date an image (you want to get the best life out of it!). Lastly stick to lip gloss only, shiny lips look more natural than matte ones!

Men if you want to have different looks grow some stubble and bring a shaving kit with you.

Haircare

This applies to both men and women. Hair looks better in images with a little volume, so give it a little more lift before your session. Bring a small kit with you of your usual hair styling products.

If you are getting a haircut before your session do it a day before the shoot. Cut hairs have a bad habit of sticking around for a day after the cut!

What do I wear?!

As you can see by now the theme is to keep it simple!

Natural colours, simple shirts with necklines are best. Nothing bright. Your favourite shirt might look great in person, but a headshot is all about your expression, so we don’t want your clothing to take away from that!
