    highlight them making them kinda cat eye and outline them in nice eyeliner, then smudge.

    if u have dark lashes, i suggest you put black eyeliner on the inside of your eye, and wear some mascara to really frame your eyes. this always works for me!

    oh yeah, and use the blue background

    Blue background would be nice, but I am probably biased since I love blue. :P

    In my opinion, skip the liner and everything, just go real simple; put a shimmery cream on your brow bone (below your brow) and on the bones above your cheek. Add on to that loads of mascara and a dab of clear or very sheer rasberry tinted gloss and you're set to go. :wink:

    Putting on too much can be "too much" for a school picture. Btwn, what kind of school picture is it? Is it like a graduation picture or something else?

    I wouldn't really slap a whole lot of makeup on for a school picture. I believe "less is more". I agree with Kimkhuu's suggestions. If you absolutely want eyeliner on, I suggest to line your top lid. Then very lightly fill spaces between your bottom lashes.

    and dont forget to smile!

    So I just got a job as a columnist for a newspaper and tomorrow morning is my photo shoot for the little black and white picture that's going to be next to my column each week. It's going to be seen by literally, thousands of people (AAAHH) and I'm going crazy. Help, please? Any make up tips or hair advice?? It's just a headshot, probably won't even show my shoulders...

    I've got long blonde hair that I part on the side and bangs that I brush to the side, but still fall in my eyes a little...

    Should I wear lots of eye make up? None on the bottom so it doesn't look like a shadow??

    Help, please! :cry:

    i know this is annoying to bump up a subject (esp when it's my own!!), and i promise to never do it again, but i really am sort of desperate... any replies would be appreciated!

    and now i am done begging :flower:

    I'm no expert but if the person taking your picture is the same one who took the other column pictures, you should check those out, that might give you an idea as to how much/little you should wear.
    One thing to keep in mind...red colour will turn much darker in a black/white photo than a another hue with a similar saturation.


    Congrats with the job n' Good Luck :flower:

    Since it'll be high-contrast, I agree that only a small amount of makeup should be necessary. You can define your eyes with eyeliner if you'd like, but use a light eyeshadow or you will develop the shadow effect. :flower:

    i'd go for simple liquid liner & mascara.
    curl your lashes. & a light pinky blush.
    light creamy almost nude lip color.
