Headshot Make-up

If you are an actor or a professional who wants to look really polished in your new headshots, or promotional images for you or your company’s website, I will use my tried-and-tested techniques to ensure that you look your very best when photographed.

I have worked with several top London headshot photographers over the last decade, and I know that even if the photographer is very friendly, photo shoots can be quite intimidating and a little nerve-wracking if you’re not used to being in front of the camera.

HD cameras and bright studio lights can be very harsh, so professional make-up will be your secret weapon to ensure that you look your very best!

The key elements of great photographic make-up are smooth and even skin with a fairly matte finish, so that you don’t look oily or sweaty under the bright lights; neatly groomed eyebrows and defined eyes that really ‘pop’ and sparkle with personality; and flattering soft colour on your lips and cheeks to bring some warmth to your face, and prevent the bright lights from making you look washed out.

I charge £80 plus travel for headshot make-up in London and Surrey, and I also offer hair styling or hair grooming as needed for an additional fee.
