1. Plan Your Look

Your headshot should reflect your personality and the image you want to project. Decide on a look that aligns with your brand or purpose. Whether it’s professional, approachable, creative, or elegant, your wardrobe, makeup, and hairstyle should be coherent with the image you want to convey.

2. Wardrobe Selection

Opt for clothing that complements your features and the background. Solid colors work best, avoiding distracting patterns or logos. Choose outfits that are comfortable, fit well, and make you feel confident. Bring a variety of options to the photoshoot to allow for different looks.

3. Makeup and Hair

Your makeup and hairstyle should enhance your natural beauty without overpowering it. Avoid excessive makeup and opt for a polished, natural look. If you’re not comfortable doing your own makeup, we have a professional stylist in the studio – just let us know.

4. Minimalistic Accessories

Accessories should complement, not overpower, your headshot. Choose minimalistic jewelry and accessories that enhance your outfit without drawing attention away from your face. Avoid overly flashy or distracting pieces.

5. Expression

A genuine smile and relaxed expressions can make a world of difference in your headshots. We will coach you to get a natural expression.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1693089703584{padding-top: 30px !important;padding-bottom: 30px !important;}”][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Headshot Tips for Women | Hair and Makeup


1. Hire a Professional Hair and  Makeup Artist

We highly recommend hiring a professional hair and makeup stylist who knows what looks best on camera, even if you are really good at doing your own hair and makeup.  It will make a big difference. We offer professional hair and makeup services as an add-on to our headshot and personal branding sessions in our studio.

2. Natural Makeup

Natural makeup is the ideal choice for your headshot session because it beautifully enhances your features while maintaining your authentic self. This subtle and timeless approach allows your true personality to shine through, ensuring your headshot captures your genuine expression and emotions.

3. Avoid Highlighters

Avoiding highlighters for a headshot session is recommended to ensure your skin appears natural and flawless. While highlighters can add a beautiful glow to everyday makeup, they can sometimes create an overly reflective or shiny appearance in photographs, especially when flash or studio lighting is involved. This extra shine can result in uneven highlights on the face and distract from your features, potentially altering the intended mood of your headshot. Opting for a matte or satin finish foundation and minimal use of a highlighter will help you achieve a polished and even complexion that translates well on camera, allowing your true expression and personality to take center stage in your headshot.

4. Easy on the powder

Using too much powder for your headshot session makeup should be avoided as it can lead to an overly matte and flat appearance in photographs. While powder helps control shine, excess powder can settle into fine lines and emphasize texture on the skin, making your complexion appear unnatural and dull. In photography, natural skin texture and a subtle glow are more appealing. Opt for a light application of translucent powder only where needed, focusing on the T-zone and areas prone to shine. This will maintain a balanced and radiant complexion, ensuring your headshot captures your genuine beauty and expression without looking overly powdery.
