With blogging and photo sharing remaining to be popular, it’s not surprising to see some young people who become famous because of their blogs or their photos. It could be because of their looks, their blogs’ contents, or the topics they cover, all these famous bloggers have one secret in common: they post high-quality photos.
While photographing clothes is easy, taking photos of a made-up face is much, much harder. Because the makeup colors will have blended itself on the face, a normal digital camera will either produce a photo of a white face (when used with flash), or a clean, flawless face, but without signs of eye and cheek colors (when used without flash).
In taking beauty shots, like those in makeup advertisements, there are a lot of things to consider.
For a photographer, the lighting must be bright enough that it makes the model’s eyes appear as if they’re glowing, and that the photos must not produce a geisha-like face, unless that is the theme they’re aiming for.
As for the makeup artist, the makeup must be thick enough to be seen in photos, and it must be equally blended.
Make Your Eyes Glow by Using Contact Lenses
While the makeup artist can only worry about the equal blending of several layers of makeup, the photographer needs to be meticulous enough to achieve the glowing eyes effect. The secret here is to have the model wear contact lenses that have a white ring surrounding the pupils. This has been proven effective, but it’s already becoming overused.
If you’re taking beauty shots for your blog and you want to have an edge, then instead of using the usual white ringed contact lenses, try out the numerous fashionable contact lenses available.
Not only will they make your eyes glow, but they also give distinct patterns that capture the reader’s attention.
For starters, try the simple designs first, like the Geo Tri Color Violet contact lenses, which give your eyes a pair of lilac-colored irises. This could be used as a test to see whether your readers like the new addition or not.
Once you have received positive feedback, then it’s time for you to explore. The Flying Butterfly Color Contact Lenses has three butterfly patterns, which look like a reflection of three real butterflies when one looks into the wearer’s eyes.
If you’re an anime-lover, then go ahead and try out Sailor Moon Anime Cosplay Contact Lenses collection. It has a pair of contact lenses for each main character of the hit anime series, from Sailor Moon’s eyes, to those of Sailor Pluto’s. This idea could draw more traffic to your blog.
