back to school

In honor of back to school I wanted to post a little bit about the makeup and hair I do for senior photos. Like with any makeup or hair that I do, I always take into consideration that individuals personality and personal style. 
One of the questions I ask is “How fancy do you want to look?” that helps me figure out if they’re wanting to go all out and look super glammed up or if they want a “I didn’t really try too hard I’m just am super hot” kind of look….or somewhere in between.

Joy didn’t really care so I just did what I thought would look pretty. senior_photos_makeupMajor babe. makeup_senior_photos_hair_wavy_hairBefore and after
before_and_after_vivianmakeupartist_senior_makeupComplexion: I used airbrush foundation on her (because I own every color under the sun) but any good foundation that stays on well will work too. Laura Mercier contour palette.  Bobbi Brown Bronzer in Natural (I also used a little on her neckline to add warmth because her arms were a lot tanner than her face and neck and I knew she’d be changing into something that’d be showing her arms.) Tarte Cheek Stain in Natural Beauty. Lancome Effacernes Concealer in Light Buff. Lancome Translucence powder in 200 Buff. Highbeam to illuminate.

Eyes:Urban Decay Anti-Aging Eyeshadow PrimerMAC Eyeshadow in Omega, Lancome Khol eyeliner in Blanc on lower inner rim, Nars Eye Paint very thin on top applied with the Bobbi Brown Ultra Fine Eyeliner Brush.  Individual lashes in short and medium using Duo glue in dark.

Lips: Lancome L’Absolu Rouge lipstick in Blush Classique with Lancome liner in Blush. Bobbi Brown Crystal gloss.

Hair: Hot tools 5/8 curling iron, Oribe Superfine 

Thank you to Angie from Simplicity Photography for these photos! (Also she has a video for sale that teaches everything you need to know about how to take gorgeous senior photos.)

Have a great week! xoxo
