Camera Ready Makeup

Camera Ready is a term that I believe most people truly do not understand. Does it mean full on makeup? Airbrushed? Remove the shine? What is camera ready?

I like this illustration because it's clean and simple, but dramatic. The eyes are minimally defined with mascara and shadow. The complexion is perfected and under eye redness is covered. The cheeks are defined with just a hint of blush and contour. The lips get a real pop of color, but that's simply personal choice. You can define the lips with any color you like.

This looks simple, and it is, if you know what colors to use and how to apply them. And as I always say, perfecting the skin is key.

If you're in the Dallas area and would like to book a consultation send me an email. We can also arrange a group session with friends or even corporate sessions. And if it's not possible to meet somewhere in person there's always Skype.

Thanks to photographer Ben Britt and model Stephanie Fisher.

Working With Celebrities

I'm often asked what it's like to work with celebrities. When it's Wendy Davis it's easy, because she's so naturally attractive, and looks great on camera.

Yes, it's hard work: early mornings, long hours, multiple locations, and yes, a lot of cooks in the kitchen on a campaign like this. However, when the end result turns out as well as this did, I feel like my hard work was worth it.

Thanks to a great crew and great editing,  it's better than I could have even imagined. However, this is video, not a still image, so hair and makeup are not photoshopped.

Need a professional to help you make your image stand out?
