How to Stay Photo Ready All Day

POSTED BY: Jon Hennessey / 0 COMMENTS

In the decade of the #selfie, your makeup needs to be “camera-ready” at all times.  There are only so many filters that can salvage an overdone application.

Here are a few tips for ensuring that every frame is a flawless one!

1.Like any great painting, the canvas needs to be prepared and primed. Under Makeup Base is ideal for minimizing surface oils and ensuring an ideal blending surface for your favourite INGLOT foundation. *

2. Just because the packaging says “HD”, doesn’t guarantee a High Definition-ready application. The proper technique and the right tools will make all of the difference in the end result. I’ll create a separate post for a tools and application ideas. Swatch your HD Perfect Coverup Foundation on several areas of the face to make sure that the colour is an ideal match for your skin tone and transitions seamlessly into your natural skin tone at the jawline.

3. Remember that shine can be a beautiful thing in a photograph, it just needs to be controlled. Minimize shine over the eyebrows, under the eyes and around the edges of the nose using 3S Mattifying Powder, applied with a small 6SS brush. The 6SS brush gives you precise control over the powder application and maintain a healthy, balanced look to the skin.

4.Utilize a Freedom System Palette to allow you to do minor maintenance on your look throughout the day. Make sure that you blot down shine first using Oil Blotting Sheets prior to touching up with your 3S Mattifying Powder. 

5.Remember that even with a more dramatic makeup application, your foundation doesn’t need to look “dramatic”. Keep the drama for the eyes the lips, or both, but not the skin. Use as much product as you need to refine details, even out the tone and minimize imperfections. Most people don’t require the same amount of foundation over the entire face. Use your product sparingly and adjust the opacity of your coverage only in areas that are necessary. The lighter the application, the less maintenance it will require over the course of the day.
