wedding photography makeupAs a wedding photographer, you should be well aware of the fact that the kind of makeup that the bride wears can definitely make or break what may be regarded as a great looking photo. One wrong makeup can run everything for you at some point and that is why you will need to make sure that everything is set up and prepared the right way. You need to be able to identify what constitute great makeup and what constitutes bad makeup and be able to tell the difference in between.

No matter what kind of technique or strategies you may employ as a wedding photographer London, all will be laid to waste if you get a makeup artist who does not understand the concepts of light and shadow and how photography comes into play among all of those variables. You do not have to do the makeup or get into the makeup process per se, but you can provide some insight into the minds of the makeup artists that you work with.

A high quality primer will prove to be the best base for wedding makeup.

Primer comes with so many different benefits. Not only will it help erase any fine lines as well as any minor flaws, it will also make the rest of the colors stay put all throughout the wedding event. As you may know, makeup tends to fade due to heat, sweat, and so on and so forth. A primer will serve not only as a base but as something that has tremendous staying power as well. The better the bride’s makeup is, the easier your job will be in making sure she comes out glowing and beautiful as ever.

Remind the makeup artist to extend the foundation all the way down to the neck.

You should know that keeping the makeup just until up to the jaw line is a big mistake. More than that, it is a mistake that can prove to look quite obvious and look really wrong once the photos come out. What you want is makeup that does not look like makeup. After all, it takes a lot of work and a lot of makeup as well to look like you are not wearing any and still look your best. Let the makeup artist understand this so that you do not have to encounter any problems with the bride’s head looking like it is a completely different shade altogether compared to her neck. She will end up looking silly in the photos and that is the last thing that you would like to happen.

Explain the importance of contouring.

Contouring can make the face look far more pronounced and far slimmer than it actually is. Contouring is the magic of makeup and is something that should be taken advantage of especially given the fact that it can really frame the face of the bride and of the other people that you need to take photos of. Master all of these tips and you can never go wrong. Your bride will come out looking as beautiful as ever.
