Makeup Myth #3 - I Need to Wear Significantly More Makeup Than Normal for Photos

Makeup by Keri Ann Makeup Myth #3

At one time this statement was true.

Before there were digital cameras and ways to edit photos, significantly more makeup was required to show up on film.

However, in my conversations with photographers, they all agree that makeup is a huge benefit for photos, but none of them like too much makeup.  Photographers can boost color during editing, but they can't take away color if it's too intense.

The types of makeup you use, where you choose to add color, and how you apply makeup is more important than putting on really intense color.

The goal, if you are taking photos for yourself, is to have your photograph be an accurate reflection of yourself.  You want to look like yourself, but you do want to enhance the great features you have.

When taking photos in natural light, I do suggest adding slightly more color to your cheeks and lips than you might normally wear, but there is no need to over do it.
