Oh What, Oh What To Bring?
Here is a handily compiled check list for you that might just help you with what to bring along for your photoshoot. Cool!
Bring at least 2 different tops in different styles (bring bottoms too if you are having ¾ and full length shots taken). I would recommend neutral items, after all the emphasis should be on that face of yours. Unless it's for a themed shoot, don't go for crazy colours. Together we will work out what makes you look amazing.
No, not your actual wardrobe please!
Ahem. I do have a mirror and a selection of hair accessories such as a brush, comb, hair clips etc. but you may like to bring along your own as well as some hair spray or gel. I know that it's tempting to wash your hair on the morning of your shoot but I recommend washing it the day before.
Avoid anything with too much gloss or shine. In particular, don’t wear high gloss lipsticks or shiny lipgloss. Avoid any face creams, bronzers or blushes that contain any sort of shine. These may reflect too much light in the image making you look shinier than you are. Really, it's not a great look. No heavy eyeliner, especially under the eyes, as it can age you on camera and may look a bit dated in photographs.
Often, an understated look will go a long way. With this in mind, here are a few tips I got from experts on the interweb...
A Toothbrush, toothpaste or toothpick
Unless, of course, you are after the coffee stained, Poppyseed and Spinach Sandwich look.
Jewellery & accessories
Why not?! A selection of necklaces, trinkets and earrings can help to personalise your head-shots even more.
A Bottle of Water
There is also water on tap. Keep hydrated! It's really important!
Bring along your MP3 Player and we'll plug it in. If not you're in danger of being subjected to my music collection!
