Beauty Musthaves for: Photoshoots!!

I just had a photoshoot this week (5 hrs!) with a friend.  :)
Whether for senior pictures, a family's wedding, or even just for fun, all photoshoots require these beauty items:
  1. Primer/Foundaton: Smashbox Photo Finish Light Primer & Revlon ColorStay (Combination/Oily Skin) Foundation are the perfect face duo!  For 5 hours, my face didn't get oily or shiny.  It stayed in place.  
  2. Needed Hair Products: To keep hairstyle vibrant and perky, bring hairspray, gel, etc... for those few second touchups.  It makes a difference.
  3. 2-3 Lipsticks: Bring a couple lip colors you like to test what they'll look like from the camera's lighting.  You'll be thankful you did.
  4. Eyeshadow Primer: Urban Decay's in Sin is what I use and it prevents all oily creases. The eyeshadow stays bold and beautiful for hours because of this amazing primer.  Seriously.
  5. Concealor/Powder: No brainer- bring concealor and powder (maybe even blush) for emergency touchups.

    We used my Canon PowerShot SX30 camera.  It was fun and the editing polished it all!  :)  Here are a few shots-

    1. Thank you, Kels! I just visited your blog. It's phenomenal! I'm a new follower. :) Thanks again!

  3. These are such great tips. Your skin looks amazing in these photos. Found your blog through Elle and Blair forum. We did an It Girl feature on them on our website, Via Los Angeles. Hope you can stop by and have a look.

    Question: Saw that you wrote about Coral nail polish in your last post. Do you have one in particular that you like?

    1. Thank you! I saw your feature of them! It's great! I also explored your site some, and ended up subscribing. Thank you for sharing!

      Yes, I'm actually enjoying a very cheap one- Wet n Wild in "Blazed." It's fast-drying, has a gel-like finish to it, and I've gotten so many compliments from other girls it's insane. It's the color and finish that counts, not what brand. Try it if you haven't. It's incredible- and for only about $1.

    2. Thanks for subscribing!

      $1! That is fabulous. Going to have to run out and try it! You have some really great tips here...and I know someone who is going to need your post on getting your wisdom teeth pulled!

    3. For sure! And thank you! I remember feeling absolutely miserable & unsure of everything before my wisdom teeth were pulled. I wasn't prepared for it at all & I was a crying wreck. So I'm so glad someone can use my advice about it, to have the easiest healing time possible. Thanks for letting me know! G'luck to them! :)

  4. I definitely love to have photoshoots with my friend all of the time :)

    I also nominated you for the Liebster award!
