Makeup and Hairstyling for Headshots in Victoria, BC 


If you are doing your hair and make up on your own here are some tips.


Hair – Headshot hair and make-up should be kept very natural, using colors that are soft and complimentary to your skin tone.  The makeup should not stand out too much or distract from your eyes and expression
Foundation – Foundation should be kept as natural looking as possible, but have enough coverage to make skin look even.  Most people will need a medium to full coverage foundation.  However, those with very clear skin, may only need to use concealer
Lips – Lips should be natural.  They should use a lipstick that is your natural color.  You only want the lipstick to even out your lips not change their appearance.  Lips should be matte.  No gloss.
Eyes – Eye makeup should be given the most attention, using enough eyeshadow and liner (in natural tones) to make your eyes pop but nothing more.
