boost your confidence

Whether it’s lash extensions or blown-out hair, professional hair + makeup will give you an extra boost of confidence in front of the camera, and it always photographs like a dream. If you’re working with a makeup artist, have her apply your makeup in natural light, if possible, so that it looks fresh and not too heavy. Plus, that’s the type of light we’ll be shooting in, so it’ll give you the best expectation of how it will translate on camera.

see the difference

Most of our clients feel like their professional makeup is “too much” at first, since it’s more than you would wear on a normal day, or that they're false lashes look too big, so if you feel that way at the beginning, don’t worry! Good makeup artists know how to get it all just right for the camera — and clients always love the final result.

Pro tip: If you're considering a facial or a new skin procedure, make sure to give yourself ample time before the session to avoid any redness or irritation to show. avoid treatments like this within 2 weeks of your session.
