Prepping For Your Appointment!
Whether you’re getting married, getting ready for a photoshoot or a special occasion, there are a few things you need to know before arriving for your appointment.
Clean Dry Hair is Best! - Always arrive with your hair clean and dry. Your artist has professional products in her kit that will make your hairstyle last all day and evening. (This does not apply if you have arranged for a blowout. In which case your hair should be clean and wet.)
Sunscreen - Skincare and sunscreen are important. It’s recommended that you do not use an SPF higher than 35 the day of your appointment. Higher SPF can react with the airbrush decreasing its longevity. However, other routine daily skincare products can be used and are encouraged.
Do not try anything new- It’s tempting to try a new face mask, treatment, lotion, etc. right before your appointment. However, some products can cause irritation. It’s best to stick with what your skin knows and what works best for you. If you want to try a new treatment or product be sure to give yourself time for a test run. If you do have a reaction, there will be time for your skin to heal before your appointment.
Sunless Tanning- Tanning beds and Sunless tanners can give us a “healthy” glow in person. When it comes to professional pictures however, a fake tan can appear extremely orange. This is difficult to correct in Photoshop. For photo shoots specifically, talk to your photographer about bumping up your tan in post processing (the editing phase) and skip the fake bake!
Exfoliating- If you exfoliate your face on a regular basis, do so the day before your appointment, not the day of. If you can, you should exfoliate your lips and apply lip balm on the day of your appointment just before your artist arrives.
