Crafting Your Signature Glam: The Artistry Behind Your Favourite Makeup Look

Our makeover and photoshoot experience is the perfect blend of pampering and empowerment. It's more than just a confidence boost; it's a celebration of your unique style and beauty.

Have you ever had your hair and make up styled by a professional? Or perhaps it's been far too long since you treated yourself to a well-deserved pamper? Either way, we believe it's high time you indulge yourself and see images of yourself like never before.

At the heart of our makeover and photoshoot experience is your individuality. We focus on your personalised preferences for hairstyling and makeup, ensuring every image we capture is a distinct and empowering portrayal of you.

We recognise that every individual's skin and makeup preferences are different. With our team of skilled makeup artists, armed with professional skincare and long-lasting photographic makeup, we're committed to catering to diverse needs.

In this blog, we unravel our three-step process tailored to accommodate every skin type and offer an insightful introduction to a variety of makeup looks you can choose from...

1. Cleanse and Moisturise

Before any makeup is applied, it's essential to cleanse your skin! 80% of people have dry skin and we use e.l.f Cosmetics, a 100% cruelty-free and vegan brand, to firstly cleanse and revitalise your skin.

2. Prep and Prime

We also trust e.l.f Cosmetics to prep your skin for a radiant glow and create the perfect canvas. If you battle with blushed skin, we've got your back with our colour corrector too.

3. Applying foundation

We understand clients can worry about the weight of photographic makeup. However, after our skin prep, coupled with foundation by Mac, you get a feather-light feel with a flawless finish that works under studio lighting as well as for the rest of the day.

Once you've completed our three-step process, your skin is prepped, primed and ready for transformation!

At Clifton Photographic, our team of talented stylists, all seasoned freelancers, bring a wealth of experience from diverse arenas - commercial shoots, film and TV sets and weddings. Their keen sense of latest trends and expertise within the make-up world means they can cater to every clients' requests.

Every makeover and photoshoot experience starts with a consultation with the stylist to let them know exactly what your personal preferences are. However, we've complied a list of the five most popular looks our clients tend to go for...

1. Natural

2. Smokey

3. With Eyeliner

4. Alternative

5. Vintage

Whether one of these looks takes your fancy, or you have a different vision entirely for your makeup, rest assured we are dedicated to catering to your unique needs. At our studio, we take our jobs seriously, ensuring that every client not only looks fabulous but leaves with a newfound confidence!
