Today on the blog I’ve got Lauren, owner of LA Page Makeup out of Middletown, CT, weighing in on why having your make-up professionally done for a personal branding session is a great idea.

Personal branding photos and makeup services naturally go hand-in-hand.

As a Connecticut based personal branding photographer helping female entrepreneurs up-level their photos, it’s important that I have a make-up artist that I can send my clients to!

I’ve worked with Lauren before and can vouch for her artistry and insight when it comes to the make-up industry. We recently collaborated on a branding session together and had so much fun.

I’ll let Lauren take it away from here for her top three reasons to get your makeup done for branding photos.

You are the face of your brand, so it’s no surprise you would want to look and feel your best during your brand session so you can put your best foot (face?) forward!

Getting professional makeup and hair done for your brand photoshoot is an underrated and underutilized experience. Here’s three good reasons why it’s a good idea to look into adding on to your upcoming shoot!

  1. It makes the photographer’s job easier

You look and feel more confident during your photoshoot when your makeup and hair are done. It makes you feel more put together and that shows through the photos with a more relaxed, relatable vibe coming through. Therefore, your photographer will be able to get much better quality photos of you in your element! It also makes the photographer’s job easier by lightening the editing load, since any imperfections or insecurities have been strategically hidden.

2. The pros know how to make your look last

Between years of experience and using professional grade products, professional makeup artists and hair stylists know how to make your look last the entire day. Not only will you be looking flawless for the duration of your photoshoot, you can also go out to dinner afterwards looking amazing! Additionally, pro makeup artists can ensure you won’t get overly shiny during your shoot, since shine doesn’t translate well in photos.

3. You’ll still look like yourself

If you’ve never had your makeup professionally done before or don’t wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis, it’s easy to assume the makeup artist will put too much product on you, making you look cakey and unlike yourself. I’m here to debunk this theory! The pros know just how to enhance your favorite features, while diminishing your least favorite features and ensuring you look photo-ready without being overdone. You can feel confident you’ll look naturally enhanced!
