We cover blemishes, even out skin tones, groom eyebrows and mustaches, beards and sharpen hairlines! All while making it seem like there is no makeup on in the photos!! They are usually apprehensive to get in the chair, of course, men don’t want to be associated with makeup. So I have to help them to see that even rappers get makeup for their photoshoots. When the men get out of the makeup chair they are feeling like a million bucks and are thanking me a million times! lol
