Photography Makeup

There is nothing more timeless than a photograph! Makeup for photography is very different from makeup at the department store’s cosmetics counter. It’s designed to stand out with the lighting the photographer uses. The time a client spends in makeup can become a calming transition between the hectic schedule of their day and the photo shoot. It’s a time for clients to feel pampered, knowing they are going to look great. This builds confidence. That confidence translates into a better result for the camera!   Hair and makeup also save the photographer time in the retouching chair. This option is great for business headshots, print work, and even family portraits!

Hair / Makeup for TV, Film and Video

Do you want your on-screen talent to look their best? Let me help you with your next project! Every film or video project can benefit from having someone to ensure that you, your team, or your talent looks their best and feels good about themselves. If your talent isn’t feeling good about how they look, it’s much harder to get a good performance from them. From pre-production right through to the day of production, I will ensure that your overall look is consistent with the production concept and will remain on site to monitor and touch-up every step of the way. I welcome you to check out my work by visiting my portfolio!
