The 411 on adapting your makeup for different lightingCan your makeup affect how you look in a photo? "Absolutely," says celebrated makeup artist Tina Turnbow who's worked with celebs including Mariska Hargitay, Amanda Peet and Vera Farmiga.
"What works well for pictures is using enough makeup to enhance your features but not so much that you overwhelm them," says Turnbow. "Don 't overdraw your lips and do not contour too heavily. In a picture everything is more obvious, so use restraint!"
The kind of light you'll be posing in makes a difference too. Natural sunlight is the most unforgiving and will show every flaw and drop of makeup so, if you're posing outdoors, keep your makeup natural.
Alternatively, fluorescent bulbs wash out color and blur definition. So, if you're having an office headshot taken, add some color and definition back to your face with blush and naturally drawn lip liner.
