Looking "natural" is actually a whole lot of tricks of the trade

I often get the request from clients to make them look "natural". well, natural for HD images is very different from natural in real life. A good makeup artist has to find the perfect balance. Pretty for pics AND for your groom! (also, real life doesn't come with those skin blurring filters..)

Below is an example of a more nude/natural look that will photograph very "fresh" and "clean". The client is wearing pretty much everything, including false lashes. Let's not confuse natural with just wearing lip balm;)

There is a whole lot of blending and softening  when it comes to creating that "barely there" look. Next time, when you're looking at that skin care add, look a little closer:)
