How to Prep Yourself for Makeup & Hair Touch-Ups

YOUR MAKEUP & HAIR:

On the day of your video shoot, there will be a professional makeup artist on set to do TOUCH-UPS to your makeup + hair.

Please come with your makeup & hair already done the way you would normally do it. The makeup artist will have a few minutes to touch you up so that you are camera-ready. Please keep in mind that for this video shoot we want you to look natural and beautiful. You do not need to do your makeup as if you’re going out for a night on the town – just what you would normally wear in a professional setting. If you don’t normally wear makeup to work, then perhaps just put on a little bit of your normal makeup for going out, but you definitely do not want to look overdone. The makeup artist won’t have time to work on you from scratch, so we want you to do your part, and then let her fix you up so that you will look as good as possible on-camera.

Below you will find everything you need to know to prepare yourself in the days leading up to your shoot, and on the morning of your shoot.

HOW TO PREP YOURSELF FOR YOUR MAKEUP TOUCH-UPS:

• The morning of your shoot, please do your makeup as you normally would, but know that you will be touched up by our professional makeup artist. Keep in mind that our makeup artist will only be able to spend about 10 minutes doing makeup touch-ups on you.

• Rule #1 is to drink lots of water and get plenty of sleep in the days leading up to your video shoot – you will look and feel so much better for your shoot, and you will also be able to think more clearly, which is very important to the success of your video shoot as well! Also, your skin will look hydrated, rather than dry, the more water you drink. Don’t underestimate the power of these simple self-care tips to help make your shoot go more smoothly, and be a better overall experience for you!

HOW TO PREP YOURSELF FOR YOUR HAIR TOUCH-UPS:

• The morning of your shoot, please do your hair as you normally would, but know that you will be touched up by our professional makeup artist. Keep in mind that our makeup artist will only be able to spend about 5 minutes doing hair touch-ups on you such as teasing, curling, straightening and spraying, so your hair should already be washed and styled as best you can, before you arrive on set.

• If your hair is difficult to style or manage, then we suggest you get it professionally blown out the day before (or very early in the morning on the day of your shoot, depending on how well your hairstyle holds up overnight)

• Please do not arrive with wet or dirty hair (wash it the day before if your hair is on the dry side)

WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU:

• If you have any favorite makeup or styling products like lipstick, primer, or eyeliner that you feel great in, bring them with you on the day of your shoot! If you LOVE it, and it makes you feel more confident, then our makeup artist can incorporate the product or color, as long as it looks great on camera

• Please bring a toothbrush or floss if you’re planning to eat before or during your shoot

OTHER SUGGESTIONS FOR THINGS TO DO TO PREPARE FOR YOUR SHOOT:

• Wear something comfortable that you can slip off easily so it doesn’t interfere with makeup & hair

• Get a facial (or any other necessary skin treatments) a week before your shoot. Don’t try a new treatment a few days before you are scheduled to be on camera!

• Get your eyebrows waxed or threaded a few days before your shoot (and don’t go too thin on the brows!)

• Get a manicure a few days before your shoot. Paint your nails a neutral color, like nude or blush, as you don’t want your nails to be distracting or draw too much attention (a few specific shades that work well are “Bubble Bath” and “Ballet Slippers”)

• Don’t try any new products the day before your shoot!

• Drink lots of water and get plenty of sleep the day/night before your shoot

• Have very little alcohol (or better yet, none) the night before your shoot, as it will dehydrate you, and make you look and feel tired
