There are a couple of reasons I advise against getting your makeup done at a makeup counter before your headshot session.
One of the reasons for this is because, unless you know the person working that day, you do not know the artist's particular “style” or whether they are a novice or pro.The second reason, is because they might not know how the makeup will appear on camera. And if it’s too heavy or too light, you don’t have anyone to make the adjustments to correct that. Thirdly, once you get your makeup done, you have to worry about getting to your headshot session and if it’s hot out, or rainy, or you just have a while to travel, the makeup will not look the same as when you first got it done.
That’s why we offer the convenience of getting your makeup done on-site, here at City Headshots. You have a stylist for the duration of your shoot to make sure your hair, makeup, and clothes are looking good the entire time. All you have to worry about is your smile, and just that in itself should make you smile!
