You most likely already know how to apply makeup for everyday use but there are a few things that are different in applying makeup for a SHEnanigans photo shoot.
Fix your face:
-The first key to HOT steamy SHEnanigans makeup is to simply fix your face as if you were going out for the evening, wearing more than for daytime use. We want people to look at you and think “WOW” you don’t even look like your ‘Plain Jane’ homely self.
- Foundation: (Again keeping in mind to what Era you are doing and staying with that time and style). Create extra contrast by using more powder, blush, and or bronzer. With that you will achieve that natural look (in the photos) also covering your bumps and blemishes in the photos (also with great photo editing you can get rid of that monster pimple… So don’t worry about that). But keep in mind to stay true to your natural colors (don’t use a darker color tone in your concealers and foundations then what your skin requires; it may not even hurt to go lighter in your concealers)… we mustn’t look like Oompa Loompas.
-Blush: Apply your blush a little heavier than normal but neatly and precisely. Don't over or under apply blush. This will also be in accordance to the effect you want to accomplish with your look for this particular shoot. Like I said before in your research you will find which “blush look” you will need to achieve to your era. Because as we all have noticed blush styles have changed drastically over the years as much as hair styles do.
-In order for your lips to stand out and be noticed, be sure that your lip gloss is a solid color and at least one shade deeper/with higher contrast than you normally wear.
Your lip liner should be the same color as your lipstick. Unless you are going for the hooker look… slut it up and go Dark…we aint Hatin!
-Stay away from any frosted lip colors entirely because they hardly show up in photos and will give the illusion that you are not wearing lip color at all. The only time you would wear frosted is when it's for some effect you’re trying to accomplish like a HOT 1970’s Sci-fi European Bomb expert… then it's cool.
-In order to produce the best results, your eye liner needs to be bold and thick… BUT MOST IMPORTANT if it’s thick on top- NONE on the bottom and vise versa… we don’t want to look like a skanky stripper with eye liner alllll around circling the eye (again IF that’s the look you’re going for… balls to the wall and DO IT, we love us some stripper looks), but if you are going for any Vintage Classic look… it’s all about the thick top eyeliner. This gives of the illusion of bigger eyes… and who doesn’t want BIGGER eyes? Along with achieving a bigger, vintage eye, if you aren’t natural blessed with amazing eye lashes… go with the thick FAKES... nothings more classic 30’s-60’s than that!
-You'll need to use an eye shadow to compliment the rest of your makeup and clothing but use a light shimmer shade on the BROW BONE and in the inner crease of the eye (ya know the part of the eye you itch if you have really bad allergies… and the part where your tears mostly come from… if that helps… I’m not a real doctor but I play one on TV HA); so that your eyes will appear more alive. And then on top of that if you are doing a dark smoky look… smoke it up and go dark bold and CRAZY!
(Really work on those eyes and lips. These are the two key features in a photo shoot ).
Good luck... and I know you will all be too hot to handle that Universes will collide and explode with awesomeness by the time these shoots are done!
