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 or a jacket 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. We do not recommend short sleeves for a business portrait. If you do not want to wear a jacket, then a long sleeve dress blouse, or sweater would be appropriate. Jewelry for a business headshot should be conservative. We recommend wearing a necklace with an open neckline.

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 headshot, a conservative business suit or jacket 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 your portrait. Instead, wear off-white or a pastel color.
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.
