There’s a common misconception that you have to do your makeup drastically different for photos. I can’t tell you how many people I’ve seen put on loads of makeup because they were afraid their normal look wouldn’t show up on camera.
Theres a really simple trick to know how much more makeup you should apply if you’re going to be photographed in pictures. You want to apply just a step heavier than you normally would. What does this mean? It means that you should definitely be able to see that you’re wearing more makeup than usual, but you shouldn’t feel uncomfortable wearing it outside. So, no clown makeup, no extreme smokey eyes, just a natural makeup with a little bit heavier than you normally would. Post down below if you try out this little trick!
