TIPS by Mikhail Malyugin More info http://www.mikhailmalyugin.com
Makeup. This is one of the most important elements in the creation of outstanding images, be very selective with the Makeup Artist. In close-up beauty photography, a great deal – if not everything – depends on how well your MUA does their job. Poorly applied makeup is difficult to fix.
Watch out for the following things: eyeliner should be applied evenly, the line must be as accurate as possible, the same goes for the lips outline. Lip color should be even (unless it’s meant to be ombre). The blush must be well blended and not look like brown stains on the cheeks. Eye brows should be symmetrical and of a natural color. Any makeup smears and smudges should be fixed right then.
Skin tone. It must be nice and even, but it shouldn’t look like a thick layer of product to the point that skin pores are plugged up.
Hair common problem area. Pay attention to the hair – how it is styled and whether or not it is frizzy. The lonely flyaway hairs that cross the models face in front of her eyes are the most annoying.
Hands in close-up beauty images the model’s nails must be flawlessly painted… and very accurately. Fixing and cleaning cuticles in Photoshop is a time-consuming.
