We’ve put together 3 complete articles with all our tips to help you take photos of yourself that are sexy as hell. In this first part, let’s have a look at the make-up you need for your photos. In the next part, we’ll talk about the ideal outfit to showcase you, and in the last part of this series we will discuss postures and accessories for top-tier staging.

 

Part 1: make-up

Reminder : the goal here is to help you take photos that look like you. Being a camgirl is not having a body like a mannequin, it is above all an attitude, a character that makes you feel sexy. The goal is that these photos are representative of who you are as a camgirl, and also that you feel good about and in tune with them. So, we have no Photoshop advice to try to slim you down, hide your little flaws, lengthen your legs or whatever. Instead, these tips are to help you find a style that suits you and a posture that enhance you thus giving fans an appealing show.

 

For make-up: do not be subtle

Be aware that in photos or videos (or when you are on stage in a play or a dance performance), you’ll need to bring out certain details which would be invisible there, even if in everyday life they’re obvious enough to make you look great. So do not be afraid to go heavy with your make-up so that it’s clearly visible in the photos. Don’t panic when you look in the mirror after doing your make-up, the photo rendering will look different. Then you have to get into character as a sexy pin-up girl who’ll entice and draw in anyone who sees the photo, so never be afraid of overdoing it.

Make-up is the perfect way to give your sexy photos a certain touch and to immerse yourself in any world you please. You can use a line of eyeliner for a ’30s doe eye effect, or a smoky-eye look for a red carpet effect. In short, make-up is a central element of the character that you will present in these photos. So ask yourself the question of what you want to stand out in these photos: who is your character? How you will be able to bring out your personality? This is very important and we recommend that you adapt our advice according to your character’s personality. If you’re more of a natural-look, there’s no need to turn yourself into a vampire with bright red lipstick and outrageous makeup. Neither you nor your fans would recognize the person in front of them.

For a pin-up look, here is a great tutorial for the basics

A MILKY-WHITE COMPLEXION

Pin-up girls (think Dita Von Teese for example) often have a very pale complexion, reinforced by a very light foundation. Of course if you don’t like this tone or if your complexion is rather dark naturally, forget the pale complexion and just make sure to unify your complexion by using a foundation close to the color of your skin. So start with a foundation to unify your skin tone and camouflage imperfections (so-called ” blur ” bases are ideal for unifying). Then apply a foundation with a brush to avoid any streaks, and be careful not to forget the neck area (in order to avoid a sharp line where the color changes).

Add a little concealer if necessary and highlight the cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, the chin and the middle of the forehead with a lighter and slightly iridescent illuminator. For those who are talented with make-up, you can use the famous contouring technique so dear to Kim Kardashian to create depth. Powder everything to fix and add blush to give a healthy glow.

 

A LINE OF EYE-LINER

To give you doe eyes and a sexy look, there’s nothing like a pretty line of black eyeliner to highlight the look. You can opt for a clean line above the eye, which you gradually thicken outwards before ending in a raised point. It’s up to you to determine the thickness and length of the line. You can add a second stroke to the lower lash line for an even more intense look. Black is what works best for this kind of make-up. But you can also try other natural colors (brown, gray, plum…). Or go for something more flashy (red, blue…). Do not forget the mascara for XXL volume lashes that give a the eyes a relaxed look. You can even use false eyelashes for more volume.

SCARLET LIPS

Finally, your mouth should attract attention with an intense color, inviting and kissable. The most classic is crimson. But there are a large range of colors you can use from light pink to plum to orange. Try to match the color to your outfit (no orange tones if your clothes are more pink, for example) and your character. Be aware that applying lipstick is much more complex than we might imagine. To obtain a sophisticated and elegant result, you need to take care in the application and finishing touches. So start by tracing the outline in lip pencil starting with the V of the upper lip. Don’t forget the corners. Then color the inside of your lips in pencil before applying your lipstick with a brush.

You can choose to highlight only part of the face (either the eyes or the mouth). And adjust these according to the outfits and your personality. You can also replace the eyeliner with      smoky eye shadow for an intense and mysterious look.

Also adapt to the staging. If your decor is more natural, apply your make-up more lightly. And avoid femme fatale makeup which would be  out of context. For an Arabian Nights session think of kohl make-up… In short, be creative.
