Photoshoot Holy Grails
I love this primer! It helps to blur imperfections and gives you this great radiance. There is the perfect amount of glow and hydration in this bottle. You can put this on your model's face and just spot foundation on any blemishes. This just "juices" the skin up perfectly.

When doing photoshoots one of the most important things you want to execute every time is having your makeup work look as clean and as polished as possible. Even those pesky little hairs. This brow gel helps keep those brow hairs neat and in place. You can put on model/clients brows as a top coat or alone. This is definitely a must have for grooming men.

Oils are a staple! I just started using this primer oil from Smashbox about a month ago. I have been using oils in general since the beginning of my makeup career. You can use oils for all skin types! I mainly use to mix with cream foundations. This helps the product glide and melt easier onto the skin. This oil is super light and absorbs fast leaving a glowy finish. Which YES, I am all about! Lol!

For all of you who don't know, "You gon' learn todayyyy" lol! Danessa Myricks is a makeup artist legend, an amazing photographer, a makeup educator, and has her own brand "Danessa Myricks Beauty" #Goals! Alright, now on to this specific product. Every makeup artist has their own way and style of doing makeup. My most requested looks at photoshoots and the look I am best known for is my Major Glow! The Enlight Powders are definitely in my Glow recipe. It is a loose powder that comes in a 2.0 oz jar with so many shades to choose from which means all skin tones are covered. You can also use them wet or dry. I love using these all over my model's face and body.

Skin is definitely one of the main focuses when doing makeup for a photoshoot. You can have great eyeshadow and great brows but frankly it comes down to skin. This is a water-gel, face and body foundation. Water Blend is pretty much what it sounds like..Water! This formula has 80% water in it. It is so skin-like and leaves a pretty, dewy finish.

I use tons of cream products and very little to no powders when on set. This 4 in 1 Cream palette has a highlight, contour, shimmer highlight and a corrector(that I even use as a blush). I love warming up the face with the contour shade! This formula glides so perfectly. It isn't too thick to where you have to warm it up. It's basically ready to be applied as is. There are 4 palettes for all skin tones.

When doing high-end beauty, false lashes are 99.9999% a NO! Investing in a good lash curler is a must. Your model's lashes need to be just as polished and neat as your foundation, eyeshadow and brows. I use the Shiseido lash curler. It has a wide lash frame that fits and hugs the eyes closely without worrying about pinching your clients lid. Use of mascara just depends on the type of shoot.
