What should I wear for my headshot?

Men – Several pressed or steamed solid neutral colored tops with varying neck lines and layers (ie: sweaters, t-shirts, collared, button down…)

Women – Same as above – avoid overly patterned or textured fabrics. Form fitting attire works better than wardrobe that is more flowing. Casting directors want to get a sense of your body type – camisoles or a V-neck work very well, and as mentioned layers are great too! For both…it’s best to keep it simple when choosing clothes. Don’t let yourself get too consumed by it. Suits and other more specific looks can be explored if needed but beyond that, this is about selling you, not so much about what it is you are wearing. Whatever you decide to bring along make sure it’s stuff you look in the mirror and feel great in!

What About Makeup?

The DIY option

Men – Makeup is generally not needed, however If you have experience with it your welcome to it.

Women – Whether inside or out we will be under professional grade lighting and your base/foundation should be heavy enough to stand up to it. However, don’t over do it! Crazy colors, or shimmers can be very distracting; your regular base with every day mascara, shadow, blush and lips should do it. Make sure to avoid using base or powder with any UV/SPF protection or titanium dioxide as this reflects light and causes highlights on your face. “Photoready” base and powder like “Revlon’s PhotoReady™” powder is good and affordable. MAC products are also recommended. If you do not use a makeup artist then go to a MAC Cosmetics or another store and ask a makeup artist there what they recommend for flash photography and natural light situations.
