CLOTHING & MAKEUP SUGGESTIONS FOR BUSINESS HEADSHOTS


LADIES

CLOTHING: When choosing clothing for your headshot, we suggest medium to dark colors or rich jewel tones rather than pastel or light colors, and solids rather than prints or stripes, and long sleeves. Try to avoid bright colors such as red or orange for color portraits; medium to dark tones of burgundy, green, purple, teal or blue are pleasing choices. Suits are a good choice for a professional headshot; when wearing a medium to dark colored suit the blouse under the suit may be a lighter color since not much of it will show. Jewelry for a business headshot should be conservative.

MAKEUP: The lights tend to drain the color from your face, so it is important to wear at least light makeup, even if you don't usually wear it. Eye makeup, especially mascara and eyeliner, helps emphasize your eyes. Lipstick is also important; we suggest a medium to dark colored lipstick with a matte finish. Powder is recommended to keep shine off your face so there is no glare on the finished portrait. This is especially important if you wear a liquid base.


GENTLEMEN

CLOTHING: For a professional PR headshot, a conservative business suit is recommended in a medium to dark color. Your shirt should be a light solid color or have a thin stripe, and you should choose an appropriate tie. For business casual portraits, shirts should be a solid color or pattern and pressed to minimize wrinkles.
Please avoid wearing a white shirt for a casual portrait.
Also avoid shirts with small patterns, small checks, or small plaids.

Our photographers will apply translucent powder as necessary to eliminate the shine from your face.
