1. Prep your wardrobe & accessories: make sure that each steamed / iron outfit is on a single hanger and your accessories for that outfit are in a Ziploc bag attached to that hanger. This will help you keep your outfits together and help you know what accessories go with them during the session. You don’t want to wake up on your session day and not have put your outfits together yet – that would cause a lot of unnecessary stress.
2. Moisturize (face and lips): Wash your face thoroughly the night before your session and apply a hydrating moisturizer. Your makeup foundation will apply more evenly if your face is prepped and ready before any color is applied. And for the entire week before your session, use your toothbrush to brush your lips vigorously. Then apply Vaseline to your lips and sleep in it. This will make your lips smooth and ready for lipstick. Chapped lips looks awful in camera (and let’s face it, in life too).
3. Get your beauty sleep: Be sure to get a good night’s rest prior to your appointment as there is nothing “fresh” about puffiness and bags under the eyes. Need extra help? Apply a cold compress to your eyes the morning of your session to reduce any puffiness or redness before your session.
