Need a new head shot? DON’T, I repeat DON’T take or use a selfie!!! Instead, hire a photographer and use these tips.
Scott Cech does a fantastic job finding and creating the “look” you want to portray.
Here are five tips to your perfect headshot:
- Use foundation and concealer if you have it and feel comfortable using it. Evening out skin tone is professional looking, and gives a polished finish to your face.
- Powder, or translucent powder is your friend!!! It’s super important to mattifying any oil. we don’t want your face to shine.
- Use a bit more makeup ( cheer/ bronzer/ eyeshadow/ eyeliner / mascara) than normal- you will have a lot of natural ( or created) light to brighten you up! We want your features to pop. I also recommend a bright lip!
- Wear a solid colored shirt, if you have something with a fun neckline that can give some interest, think jewelry to add visual interest as well!
- Angles are your friend- you don’t want to pose head on, completely straight to the camera! P.S. best to use a professional! For both your photographer AND makeup artist.
Scott and I have worked together many times, we are your secret weapon for head shots!
