Should you wear professional makeup for photos?

Having your make up done by a professional makeup artist can still look natural and give you flawless skin. Not only will it make you look like a million bucks, but also will give you the confidence in front of the camera. After all, the best thing you can wear on your face is a confident expression and it all starts with a professional makeup artist. K Jay Photos suggests MakeUp by Francesca out of Middleton, WI for all of your hair and make up needs prior to your scheduled photoshoot. You won't be disappointed. 608-395-8164 [email protected]   

What kind of makeup should I wear for a photoshoot?

I always recommend that you wear your make up to look natural but enhancing your eyes, cheeks and lips. Avoiding shine by using a pressed natural powder and lip gloss. If you decide to do your own makeup, you can visit some of the local stores like Ulta or Sephora to help match up skin tones with product and offer suggestions that would be ideal for you.

Can professional Makeup cover blemishes or scarring while keeping it natural?

We asked Francesa this question and she said "The skin and foundation application is my favorite part of each makeup service. I am passionate about making your foundation look amazing while feeling light and comfortable throughout your entire event. Glowing skin is always in style.

What prep is needed before professional makeup is applied?

Arrive with a clean face. Feel free to finish your skincare routine at home with a moisturizer, but leave all of the makeup applications to the professional. Ensure your hair is clean (day old is preferred) and dry for any styling services.

For most clients these services take about 1 hour, however your desired look and length of hair can vary and may require additional time.
