Gaye Moore’s Business Headshot

So Gaye needed some images for her www.fookfifty.com website (#Fookfifty) and like any business headshot firstly you’ve got to find out what is the message you want to get across in your images. For Gaye it was professional, approachable and classical. We chatted about wardrobe to make sure we get the right look (block colours, no patterns).

Our makeup artists Alison of Wedding Heaven did a wonderful job on Gaye’s makeup, choosing products that are suitable for a more mature skin type. Here is the prescription she created for Gaye:

Makeup Prescription recommended by Alison

  • Vichy Dermalend Concealer
  • Dior Air Flash foundation 300
  • Mac Prep and Prime
  • Mac sheer lipstick, colour On Hold.

Your top Tips:

  1. Apply your concealer before your foundation for colour correction
  2. Only apply Dior Air Flash foundation up to top of cheekbone sprayed on to a stippling brush and gently applied.
  3. Apply under eye concealer colour 90 from Inglot under your eye.
  4. Use pink blush colour Dainty from Mac to add colour to your face.
  5. Finally use Mac Prep and Prime setting powder for ultimate finish.

We spent an hour capturing a number of images that are engaging and empowering, perfectly suitable for websites, social media and even printing. I adore the section below which was Gaye’s choice, a great selection that will last a few years.
