My Photography Staples

This picture is copyrighted. Please do not copy.

This is my post from Blackberry so its going to be a bit random and also it would be a bit lost for a well planned article so please mind this!

I've been immensely busy for the whole week with some paid/unpaid (which I hate) photohoots and its been real fun working with this amazing photographer Brijesh who shoots magic with his camera. Since I worked quite a bit and also have a bit of understanding of the cameras this article would be about some amazing stuff in makeup that got to use and get the best pictures.

So let us see my green room specials......


Foundations maybe the most important part of makeup but its not always necessary to use a department brand foundation. Certain drugstore foundations perform so well on camera that I wonder where these products were before. any Ksilicone' rich foundation plays magic in photos. I felt that mineral makeup maybe good for everyday usage but looked scary and hideously shiny in the camera. Has any one experienced this?

So my favorite products in this category are:


1. Max Factor Xperience foundation
2. Maybelline Dream Mousse Liquid foundation
3. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
4. Revlon Photoready foundation
5. Kryolan Suprafoundation and Micro HD foundation


1. Shiseido Dual Foundation
2. Chanel Perfection Lumiere
3. Lancome Teint Miracle foundation
4. Estee Lauder Double wear light stay in place makeup
5. Clinique Supermoisture makeup.

For concealers I love thicker formulas that can be thinned down. No one has taken the place of MAC studio fix concealer and Kryolan yet but you never know what may come in the kit.

Since I use minimal powders, I would use Kryolan Translucent Powders only. Nothing else. The shades TL4 amd TL14 are universal.


Shiseido Natural finish creamy concealer that is supposed to do wonders. I am also trying the new foundation released by Oriflame called Studio Artist. Hope it turns out to be fine.


With MAC ruling the backstage and green room beauty never thought of using any other brand until BH cosmetics came in. They have some amazing eye shadow shades that look cool and amazing on camera. Second in line is Inglot wich have the best mattes I have ever used.

I love NARS Pro prime (not for the blog and I would not repurchase) which keep the shadows at bad. For mascaras I am not out of Max Factor and L' Oreal mascaras though I would go on with Oriflame mascaras too.
For eye liners I use Bourjois and Revlon but also favor Lancome and MAC.


If anyone knew this then Scott Barnes have the most amazing camera friendly blushes. MAC Mineralize blushes give a subtle sheen that lovely camera catches very well.
My uber favorite is Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Rose and most versatile blushers are Smashbox Fusion Lights in all the colors I have thanks to Strawberrynet.
Shiseido Accentuating Sticks impart a healthy flush while Clinique Fresh bloom is a modern take over the classic eye and cheek makeup as it is friendly for the entire face.

For lipsticks I am currently using Lancome, Oriflame, MAC and for glosses I am using Clinique, Shiseido and Chanel.

These are some products that I love and I will share the break ups of makeups as soon as I get the pictures.

Till then,
