Want to look your best for your next photoshoot? Of course, you do! That’s why we’ve put together this list of 10 things every woman should do before her next photoshoot. From getting a professional makeup application to working with a stylist, these tips will help you look and feel your best on the big day.
1. Get a Professional Makeup Application
If you’re not used to wearing makeup, the process of doing your own can be daunting (not to mention time-consuming). Save yourself the hassle and treat yourself to a professional makeup application the day of your shoot. This way, you’ll have one less thing to worry about and you’ll know that your makeup will look flawless in photos. Just be sure to bring along a photo of the makeup look you want so that your artist can replicate it.
2. Work with a Stylist
Not sure what to wear? Bring in a pro! A stylist can help you put together the perfect outfit (or outfits) for your shoot. They’ll take into consideration the kind of photos you’re taking, the location, the season, and your personal style to put together a looks that will photograph well and make you feel confident.
3. Go for a Mani/Pedi
There’s nothing worse than seeing chipped nail polish in photos, so make sure your nails are looking their best by getting a mani/pedi before your shoot. Opt for classic colors like nude, red, or pink so that your nails will complement any outfit and won’t be too distracting in photos.
4. Get Your Hair Done
Just like with your nails, it’s important to have great-looking hair for your photoshoot. If you have long hair, get it trimmed and styled so that it looks healthy and sleek. If you have short hair, make an appointment with your stylist for a blowout or other chic hairstyle. And if you’re thinking about trying something new, this is the perfect opportunity to do it! Now is the time to experiment with color or cuts since you’ll have plenty of amazing photos to document the transformation.
5. Practice Your Poses
One of the best ways to feel confident in front of the camera is to know what poses work best for your body type and the kind of photos you’re taking. Spend some time practicing in front of a mirror so that you’re not fumbling around on the day of your shoot trying to remember what looks good. You can even practice with friends or family members so that they can give you feedback on which poses are most flattering. Feeling good about how you look in front of the camera will result in more natural-looking photos, so it’s worth taking the time to prepare ahead of time.
6 . Smile! “The best accessory a girl can have is her smile."
You’ve probably heard this piece of advice before, but it truly is worth following—especially for photoshoots! Smiling not only makes you look happier and more approachable, but it also lights up your whole face and can make even the most simple outfit look chic and put-together. So whether you’re feeling nervous or excited (or both!), remember to smile—it really is contagious.
7 . Relax and Have Fun!
This may sound easier said than done but it’s important to relax and enjoy yourself during your photoshoot. The more fun you’re having, the better your photos will be because they’ll reflect genuine joy and happiness. So take a deep breath, let loose, and enjoy being in front of the camera! After all, this is supposed to be fun!
