Using makeup artists for photo shoots is extremely important if you want WOW photos.

Don’t be foolish enough to think that you are going to be able to do a great job of your own hair and makeup AND then get in front of the camera and model. When a model is in front of the camera, they have absolutely no idea how how they look.

A good makeup artist will make you look your best and also works with the photographer as a second set of eyes to insure that things always look great while the photos are being taken.
