Having a makeup artist available when you photograph models is great, especially a makeup artist that understand the photography process.
I have had models who do their own makeup, but to have a pro apply the makeup is great.
I recently photographed a beautiful model named Rebecca, and had the talented Morgan there to do the makeup.
While there is a prevailing idea that anything can be “fixed” in Photoshop, it is a whole lot easier to have it done right to begin with.
The time saved in post processing is well worth the cost of a good makeup artist. For more about Morgan, she can be found here : Morgan on Model Mayhem
