3 Tips For Getting Professional Hair and Makeup For Your Senior Photo Session

January 31, 2022


We love offering professional makeup and hairstyling for all our senior clients on their special day as it really allows them to feel calm because their face is in professional hands! It also takes the stress of having to do it yourself or finding someone to do it for you. Who better to create your look than a makeup artist & hair stylist!?

The makeup artist I work with on almost all of my senior sessions is Gaby with Gaby Makeup Artistry. She has been a professional hair and makeup artist for 13+ years and is based in Oklahoma City. She is amazing and all my senior girls love her! She truly knows how to make you feel relaxed and enjoy being pampered. She walks you through the whole process and ensures you are thrilled with the results. No need to worry, you will still look like you!

Here’s a few quick tips to use when you’re in the glam chair that make your session day with us even better:

1. Trust your artist. Remaining calm and steady when products are being applied near your eyes is crucial. Twitching and squirming often causes errors. When you seem confident and collected it helps the artist focus on the task to ensure a stunning finish. I have seen several girls be so nervous before false eyelashes are applied. Gaby walks you through the process and once she is finished all the girls talk about how much easier it was than they anticipated.

2. Do not take your cell phone with you into the makeup chair! Looking down at your phone throughout the session can actually create mistakes if your makeup artist needs you to be looking in a different direction for makeup application. It can also prolong your makeup session if your artist must continuously ask you to pull your head up to apply makeup. It’s also a huge temptation to look at yourself when your cell phone is in your hand. I always love to see my senior girl’s reactions at the very end when they see themselves completely camera ready for the first time.

3. Do not apply any makeup over your artist’s work. If you apply powder, concealer, foundation, blush, etc. over the makeup, you can actually ruin the makeup job. If you’re worried about acne, dark circles, etc., let your photographer take care of that in Photoshop! Just let us know about any issues you may have.

I only hire the best makeup artist to work with my senior photo clients. Trust them and myself to have you picture perfect ready when we head out for your senior portrait session.
