What do I Wear to a Photo Shoot?

It’s time for your senior pictures! You may be asking, what do I wear? What do I bring? Well, don’t worry, because we are here with a Senior Photo Shoot style guide!

Follow the tips below to get the most out of your Senior photos!

Keep your outfits visually simple
Solid colors and simple patterns look best on camera! Avoid busy patterns and large logos or words. Textured fabrics such as cotton and wool are great options, stay away from silks or satin.

Have an outfit plan
Your number of outfit changes will depend on which session you choose. Always plan out your outfits ahead of time and bring extra ones! You may change your mind once you see the backgrounds and sets in person.

Don’t be afraid to be diverse with your outfits
You may be tempted to just bring your favorite everyday outfits, but be sure to bring something a little dressier. Variety is key!

Apply your makeup normally
Powder, eyeshadow or lipstick with glitter or shine may cause a reflection from the flash so try to stick to matte finishes. Matte powder is your friend! Bring it with you even if you did your makeup, you may need to reapply to avoid shine.

Stick with hairstyles you know
Your hair needs to be styled in a way that you are comfortable with, so don’t try a new hairstyle for your shoot. If you need to get your haircut, try to go at least a week in advance to give your hair time to adjust and look normal.

Pay attention to details
Check your nails for chipped polish and go with simple colors that won’t distract from your outfits. Try to avoid going out in the sun for long periods of time right before your shoot. Nobody wants sunburns or tan lines in their senior pictures!

Accessorize
Hats, belts, jewelry, shoes, props… these items can be very important. They help show off your personality and make your photos all about you!

Friday Fashion Debate: Fall & Winter Makeup

This week we are veering off the “fashion” path again to talk about Fall & Winter Makeup trends. We all know eye shadows and lip colors get darker this time of the year but we are going to go beyond that today.

One of the biggest trends in Fall & Winter makeup this year is the cat eye. While this look is not new, it did seem to die off for a bit but the cat eye was a popular look this season on the runway. Mix that with another big look for the season, metallic shadows, and your makeup will be spot on for the hottest trends of the season.


There is an interesting twist to these two dramatic makeup trends though, we are seeing a lot of the big names go for a more fresh faced approach by avoiding heavy blush or bronzer. This idea keeps the focus on the dramatic eyes and tones down the rest of the face. Makeup experts suggest using a light coverage foundation and powder and if you feel the need to use blush, keep it in neutral tones and use a light hand when applying.

The fashionistas of our society aren’t taking away our dark lip colors, but using a matte finish lipstick is going to be the best fit to complete this look. 8d45a11dbe5f0cc6102682e35036ac90.jpg
