When it comes to makeup, the camera loves a well-executed cat-eye or bold lip. However, while these statement looks may be great for photographing, they often don’t translate well in person. In this blog post, we’ll share some tips for creating camera-friendly makeup looks that will look great in both photos and real life. So, whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting with makeup, we promise you’ll find something useful here!
How can I make my makeup look better on camera?
If you’re like most women, you probably love taking selfies. But if you’re not careful, your makeup might end up looking a little too harsh in photos. That’s why it’s important to follow these camera-friendly makeup tips:
- Use a light foundation.
A heavy foundation will look cakey in photos. Instead, use a light foundation that will give your skin a natural glow.
- Apply blush sparingly.
Too much blush can make your face look too red in photos. So apply it sparingly and only to the apples of your cheeks.
- Use neutral shades of eye shadow.
Bright colors can be jarring in photos. So instead, use neutral shades like eggshell, beige and brown for your eye shadow.
- Don’t go overboard with lip color.
Lip gloss will make your lips look shiny in photos; lipstick can make them appear too dark or harsh. Stick to a clear or light pink lip gloss for the best results.
- Use bronzer on lightly tanned days.
If you’re naturally tan (or get a spray-on tan), use bronzer every other day instead of every day to avoid looking muddy in photos. You should also apply it less heavily than usual on darker skin so as not to overwhelm your face in pictures.
What type of makeup should I wear on camera?
This is a question that many people ask, and the answer can vary depending on the type of shoot you are doing. However, in general, you want to choose the makeup that will enhance your features without being too overpowering.
For example, if you are shooting a commercial or a headshot, you will likely want to wear heavier makeup than shooting a naturalistic portrait. However, it is important to avoid going too heavy with the makeup, as this can look unnatural on camera.
In general, it is best to stick to neutrals like nude shadows and shades of pink or peach for your lips. You may also want to consider using a primer to help create a smooth base for your makeup.
If you are not sure what type of makeup to wear on camera, it is always best to consult with a professional makeup artist. They will help you choose the right products and techniques to create a look that will photograph well.
