Although a makeup artist is not required for your session Matthew Blassey Photography highly recommends having one to ensure the best results. For some clients that have a friend as a makeup artist, Matthew recommends using one of his recommended makeup artists who specialize in headshot makeup design. One of Matthew’s experienced makeup artists will provide you with a light and natural polished look for actor headshots and actress headshots. Headshots should always look natural, providing you with an accurate representation when you show up for audition. Color headshot photography has become the current industry trend and it is highly recommended that both men and women have makeup for their photo session. Color photography tends to show a high degree of tonal variation and skin imperfection so it ideal to have a makeup artist booked for your session. In terms of hairstyle Matthew suggest you come with your hair already styled as makeup artists usually do not style hair for actors headshot photography. Actresses can choose to have their hair styled up and down for segments of their session. Actors can choose to have a light beard and clean shaven look for segments of their headshot session as well.
