Make-up & styling for photo shoots by professionals
AS A WOMAN WHO DOESN’T DO LOTS OF MAKE-UP HERSELF, I KNOW HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO HAVE A MAKE-UP ARTIST, WHICH MY CUSTOMERS APPRECIATE THE NATURAL BEAUTY AND UNIQUENESS AS I DO.
Because there is hardly anything worse than being completely “styled”. Unfortunately, I have often seen it myself that make-up artists have not responded to my personality or to my wishes and preferences.
With the result that I didn’t recognize myself and I didn’t like the photos that were taken at all.
Therefore, it is particularly important to me to only work with selected makeup professionals and stylists, who underline the individuality and beauty of every woman is just as important to me.
One of these wonderful fairies, as I secretly sometimes call them;), is dear Anna with whom I spoke precisely about this topic:
LOVE ANNA, PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF AND TELL US WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU OFFER:
My name is Anna Maurer and I am a make-up artist, color and style consultant. I have been working in this area for nine years now and it is the radiance and joy of my customers that motivate me to continue.
It is just an affair of the heart for every woman to show her radiant side.
The variety is also what I particularly like about my job. To underline the natural beauty of my customers. Whether in consultation on the subject of make-up, hairstyles and colors or in preparation for a photo shoot, that is what fascinates me again and again.
AND WHO IS YOUR TARGET GROUP?
My target group are women who want to show their natural yet stylish side. Women who want to get the best out of themselves without disguising themselves or alienating themselves.
It doesn’t matter whether it starts from scratch or has already mastered daily make-up while sleeping. It is important to me to pick up the woman from her current position.
I think this flood of information about make-up and what goes with it all of us know. These . There are countless products in the drugstore, in the online videos what feels like 120 products are often used and then these brushes ?!
It is a matter close to my heart to show women how they can achieve a lot with little and still remain themselves.
WHAT IS YOUR GOAL OR MISSION AS AN ENTREPRENEUR?
My goal is to reflect women their own unique beauty and to bring it out. Because every woman is beautiful in her own way and she can emphasize that. I want to bring women a little closer to themselves.
The fastest way is to make someone shine with the right brushstrokes. The right colors in the right places and you have a fresh look.
A more long-term solution is a color consultation so that the entire box, all outfits, make-up equipment, hair color and spot colors match each other harmoniously and, above all, match the type. So women only have to decide on an outfit depending on the daily constitution.
TELL US A LITTLE WHAT A STYLING LOOKS LIKE FOR A PHOTO SHOOTING:
I think that many women have all kinds of thoughts going through their heads before a shoot, including the horror scenario: If I don’t like myself? I no longer look like me when I hardly or never wear make-up?
Or what if she paints me with blue eyeshadow and kohl? Do not worry! Of course I won’t do that – it would be a bit late for the 80s 😉
Before a photo shoot, we discuss the ideas and the styling requirements in detail. Then I style the hair, do the make-up they want and the customer can just arrive, take a deep breath and relax.
Some customers have already found THE lipstick color or THE eyeliner that they always use. Of course, it is then advisable to use this color when shooting.
For photo shoots, I also recommend a very natural base make-up to women who never put on make-up, as it simply supports the glow in the photos.
In general, the styling and make-up can and should be a little bit more intense than the customer is used to, otherwise it disappears in the picture. But the naturalness and the feel-good factor are absolutely in the foreground and no customer is forced or persuaded to do anything.
WHY DO YOU THINK IT IMPORTANT OR? A GOOD IDEA FOR A PHOTO SHOOTING TO BE STYLED BY A PRO?
From appointment to appointment, quickly to the photographer and years of regret. My last passport photo was so bad that I couldn’t wait for the years to finally end. Maybe someone else knows that?
When I saw my old passport, I swore to myself that it would be worthwhile to do it properly next time, regardless of whether it was a passport photo or a business photo.
With beautiful styling and a professional, sensitive photographer like Karin, to make me feel good, because that’s exactly what you see in the photos.
Life is constantly changing and that’s why I have new photos taken for my website every 1-2 years, because my business grows with me. It is important to me that I feel good, that I come across as authentic and look forward to the pictures in retrospect, because that is what I convey to the outside world.
Photo shoots in particular require so many thoughts. Starting with the outfits, the right set colors to the picture formats and especially when it is important, the hair does not work or the eyeliner does not work as always.
That’s why my tip is: Treat yourself to this hour before the shoot, to arrive and enjoy, to be pampered, and then to start taking photos at full speed. You will not regret it!
AND FINALLY, ONE TIP THAT YOU WOULD GIVE TO OTHER ENTREPRENEURS WHO ALSO WANT TO HAVE PHOTOS TAKEN FOR THEIR BUSINESS:
I have to get rid of two tips that are particularly close to my heart:
I think everyone knows that. We look at a profile on social media or visit a website and the photos are very old or just unprofessional and the search continues.
For me it is particularly important that the first impression is right. Photos are often the first thing a reader or potential prospect sees and that’s why I attach great importance to the fact that my photos are authentic and have a positive aura. This is how you attract the right customers.
My second tip: bright and colorful clothing colors look great on photos. Think about which accessories will bring you and your business to the fore in advance and trust a professional photographer like Karin, who will accompany you intensively in preparation for the photo shoot and then put you in your beautiful light.
