Getting the skinny on make-up.

Lights, camera, action! Regardless as to whether you are having your publicity portrait done as an actor, model, author or engineer, you’ll need to apply make-up to look your best. Salem professional make-up artists at Rouge (Jennifer, Tracy, Brandon or Kira) will coordinate their schedules with your portrait session.  Rouge has natural lighting and the artists are trained at how to have you looking your best for the photo shoot. You can also receive complementary instruction at department stores such as Nordstrom and Lord & Taylor. If you prefer to apply your own make-up, here are some tips.

*Apply foundation in an even and natural way. Be sure the color matches your skin tone and brush on to achieve a smooth and blended coverage.

*Use a matte powder to reduce the shine on forehead and nose- men and women.

*Eyes are the focus. Naturally applied mascara, eyeliner and shadow can define and enhance your eyes.  For special occasion portraits consider false eyelashes, they can be applied just for the shoot and removed easily. They are the most natural way to bring out and brighten your eyes. They are subtle and flattering.

*If you’re a hay fever sufferer consider a few drops of Visine before your session.

*Use lip liner with your lipstick but don’t overdo it.  Be sure to line the entire lip not just the outline. Use a natural lip tone or match the lipstick color.

*Do not use glitter or shimmering products.

*Avoid getting a facial or spray tan in the days before your session as they can cause irritation.

A Toast

A Toast is most formally known as an expression of honor used during a celebration. A Toast is uniting, with its messages of goodwill. In these fast turning pages of life, we often forget to slow down, come together, and receive the enjoyment of family. This is the one time of year where we get a glimpse of this reminder, feels its rejuvenating effects, and its centering elements. This post is a visual of two people’s bond joined internationally, as they found love through exploring globally, while uniting separate cultures, with equal values. Remember to remain positive, and to love, through this season.

Happy Holidays,

Louise Michaud
