Makeup for High School Seniors | Meredith Ehler | Makeup Artist | Sterling, Virginia

This past week I had the pleasure to do makeup for 2 beautiful rising high school seniors, Marisa and Maddy.   Basically I am their personal stylist – just like stars have before they walk the red carpet

I have the privilege of working with a few local Fairfax and Loudoun County photographers and their clients.  The clients typically come to me before they have their photo session for makeup, hair styling, and styling of their outfits they will be wearing for the session.  It’s traditional for high school students, both girls and guys, to have a professional photographer do a portrait session just before their senior year.

Today, the session with Marisa started with styling her wardrobe.  We chose the outfits that will work best in front of a camera.  We chose the accessories that will best highlight each outfit.  Today’s shoot was with Angela Goodhart of Goodhart Photography.  She has amazing backdrops that work with a myriad of colors and styles of clothing, and personalities!

Then we moved onto makeup.  My goal is to have my client go to her photography session feeling beautiful and confident.  I like to prepare each girl for what to expect during the shoot.  The more they know then the quicker they can become comfortable in front of the camera and the more fun they will have!

Any occasion for a professional is a perfect occasion for me to style you!  I recently did hair and makeup for a beautiful client who was doing a special photo book for her husband-to-be as a wedding gift.   I am also available to stay with your during the shoot and style each shot to make sure your hair, makeup, and wardrobes look amazing!   Schedule me right after you schedule your shoot with your photographer to ensure I am available for your shoot date.
