Makeup for Photos Maybelline Tutorial


It’s been a while since I’ve done an actual makeup tutorial around these parts, and this one is awesome. It’s all about makeup that is flattering in photos, and I’m using all budget-friendly products! Even better…. it’s only one brand – Maybelline! Maybelline is seriously in my top three favorite budget makeup brands, and probably the absolute best for mascara!

I recently picked up the brand new Maybelline Falsies Push Up Drama Mascara and I can’t even tell you how excited I was to try it. I love all of the other falsies mascaras, and I have been hearing great things about this one since its launch.

The mascara inspired this makeup tutorial. Since lashes tend to disappear in photos, I wanted to make them the star of the show. I recreated this makeup look from last year’s family photos, especially since family photo season is coming up. Are you thinking about family photos? I know I am. Hopefully I have a couple of tips and something you can take away when you’re doing your makeup for photos! And this tutorial is like a 3 in one – photo ready, budget friendly, and 1 brand tutorial! You can thank me later.

    Love this tutorial girl! I so wish that foundation worked for me. My skin tone is right in between the lightest color and ivory. Neither worked. But I will definitely check out that mascara. I love Maybelline mascara. The best!

      Aw darn! What a pain! If I really love something and I want the right color, I will usually buy two shades and mix them. But that’s kind of a lot of work and money. Lol. And yes, that mascara is awesome!!

    Hi Meg! What I’d like to know is the shades of your foundation. Secondly, the purpose of the Circle Erase Treatment + 2 different concealers. I’m a minimalist when it comes to makeup. Mostly because I don’t know what I’m doing. So, could you get away with using the Circle Erase Treatment AS a concealer?

      Hey girl! I usually choose the second-third lightest shade when I am at the drugstore. I think I picked this one up in Classic Ivory. So I used the circle eraser treatment for the undereye area to minimize darkness. It has a pinkish tone to it, so I wouldn’t really recommend using it as a concealer on other spots of the face. If you want to stick with one concealer, I would definitely recommend the Maybelline Fit Me!
