    Preparing for your shoot

    • Have your hair cut a couple of days before your shoot.
    • Groom any excess facial hair at the same time (Ear, Nose, Eyebrows, and Beard)
    • Consider using specialty products such as beard oil and eyebrow gel.
    • Tame your beard.  A classic beard should not be too long or short.
    • Moisturize your skin.  Skincare for men is super important.  I recommend a hydration moisturizer with an SPF 30 rating.
    • Use a light moisturizer that isn’t too greasy.
    • Drink plenty of water.
    • If you have a clean-shaven face microdermabrasion can be done up to 2 days before your shoot.
    • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours before your shoot.
    • If you are worried about crows feet, use a men’s eye cream the night before to hydrate those problem areas.

    Candee’s Role

    With Candee’s years of experience in skin care/hair and grooming she will be sure to guide you to making the right decisions with regard to moisturizing and developing a skin routine prior to your shoot.

    On the day of your shoot, Candee will be sure that your skin is as even and free of blemishes as possible, prime your skin to prepare for the makeup application, and ensuring that your hair is groomed properly before you are in front of the camera.

    When necessary, Candee will stay throughout the shoot to reapply any makeup that wears, powder and clean up any issues, and react live to the images as they are coming out to make sure every shot comes out professionally.

    • Picture this! It’s your wedding day, you are so nervous, excited and stressed out. You show up to your hair and makeup appointment knowing just how it will go because of course you had a trial. You knew exactly what you wanted. Every detail of the day is planned out. You show up with breakfast for the entire bridal party and notice there is an unknown person set up ready to work. Who is this women? You look around and notice the girl that did your makeup is not there. Yup this is my fabulous story! I am the luckiest bride I had the best makeup artist ever! The Salon called in Candee Caldwell she was amazing. She was professional and friendly from the moment I walked in. Of course all makeup artist like to do trial however we didn’t have time for that. She spoke to me the entire morning while everyone was getting their hair and makeup done. She told me about herself and her life. By the time I sat in the chair for my makeup I felt like I was with a friend. I don’t wear a lot of makeup: maybe some mascara and eye liner. Candee knew exactly what to do to make my pictures pop and without taking me out of my comfort zone of not a lot of makeup. She made me look like a better me! The photographer loved my makeup and had no clue it was Candee’s work. When I told him Candee did my makeup he said “No wonder you look amazing”. She made me feel wonderful and beautiful. I was the luckiest bride to end up with the best makeup artist! Also I had been to a wedding recently where the bride had a lot of her makeup on her dress. Candee uses waterproof make up and it all stayed on my face. My dress is still bright white no makeup stains. I have very sensitive skin and I didn’t have any problems. Thank You Candee for an amazing experience! – Patterson, NY
