All the previous suggestions like avoiding sunburns, tanning beds, and spray tans still apply. Get plenty of sleep the night before your shoot and have a light snack just before your session to keep your energy levels up.
One new makeup trend this year is the use of bronzer and high ligher. These products look fantastic in person but photograph poorly. The same material which makes your skin glow in person also reflects light in photographs……a LOT of light. Too much light in fact, making your skin look shiny and greasy in photographs.
With humid summer conditions, its best to bring your hair care products and hair spray to touch up your “doo” if it starts to fall or frizz.
If you keep our helpful hints in mind, you will have a great photography session !
