First impressions can be almost impossible to change. That’s why it’s always great to make the very best first impression possible, especially if you want your clients or customers to feel like they are dealing with someone at the top of their industry. And the best way to leave a first good impression is to make sure you look best in your corporate headshot.

A good corporate headshot is going to represent you and your brand in the most positive way possible. It should show that you’re approachable, professional and confident. The right makeup can play a big role in showing all of those qualities. The wrong makeup, on the other hand, might send the wrong message or make you look unprofessional.

The best advice that I can give someone preparing for a photo shoot is that they consider investing in a professional makeup artist. Photography makeup is different to the type of makeup that you use on a daily basis. We do understand that this is not in everyone’s budget and so I am going to give you some tips on what you can do to take care of the makeup yourself.

The good news is that I am here to help you with some tips that you may not have considered about what type of makeup to apply for your corporate headshot photo. Follow these tips and you are guaranteed to get the best possible photo session with some smashing photos!

1 – Don’t go for heavy makeup. The idea is to try to make it look like you are not wearing any makeup at all. Use subtle colors that match your skin tone and focus on enhancing your best features.

2 – Get a good foundation. This is one of the most important steps in getting your makeup right for photos. A good quality foundation will even out your skin tone and give you a nice base to work with. It will also help to control shine which can show up under photography lights. One thing to remember here is to not over-apply the foundation. Just make sure to have an even application but heavy foundation has a tendency to flake off which will show up in the photo.

3 – Take care of your eyebrows. This is something that a lot of people tend to overlook when doing their makeup but it can really make a difference in photos. Well-groomed eyebrows will help frame your face and make you look more polished.

4 – Don’t wear heavy eye makeup. Heavy eye makeup tends to smudge and is something that really stands out. Instead, go for a more natural look with some light eyeshadow and mascara.

5 – Choose the right lipstick. Again, you want to go for a more natural look so avoid dark and bright colors. Stick to lipsticks that are close to your natural lip color or go for a nude shade.

6 – Make sure that you are comfortable in the makeup, you don’t want to look like you are trying too hard. The goal is to look natural, professional and confident.

7- Bring your makeup to the photo shoot. This way you’ll be able to re-apply or fix any makeup issues that come up on the day.

By following these tips, you are sure to have a great corporate headshot that represents you and your brand in the best possible light! And if you want to take it one step further, consider investing in a professional makeup artist who can help you achieve the perfect look.

A good photographer is alway going to be advise you the best way to look in your photos. This includes makeup advice so make sure to ask them any questions that you might have.
