Hey Snobs, Kelsea here! Jumping off our last blog, What It’s Like To Shoot a Magazine Cover, I thought I would share how I prep for photoshoot in general! No matter what the shoot is for and no matter how big of a deal the shoot is, I always follow the same routines. So for all my Snobs out there that want some tips on how to prepare for literally any photoshoot and for how to make sure you feel your absolute best, I suggest you follow my Snob-Approved guidelines!
Believe it or not, I start prep for a photoshoot a week in advance before any shoot I have. Here’s what it looks like:
Before the shoot:
- Water, water, water. Not only to cleanse my body, but also to cleanse my skin and give an extra slimming look.
- Up that sunscreen! While I am conscientious of this daily, I am extra cautious the week before to ensure there is no sun damage for the shoot.
- Face oils + face exfoliation. I can’t stress this enough –– exfoliating followed by facial oils are the key to a quickend face glow in time for a shoot.
- I eat my healthiest to make sure I am cleansed but also have energy and look healthy for my shoot!
- Scheduled hair, nails, etc. appointments for the week before and a spray tan for the night before.
Night + Morning before:
- The night before I always do a full body exfoliation followed by a spray tan. The extra glow + the smooth skin give me that extra boost of confidence I need for my shoot.
- This should go without saying but, as much sleep as possible! It is imperative to be fully rested to not only feel good but also look good the next day.
- First thing when I wake up, ice roller! This magical trick depuffs my skin, wakes me up, and just makes me look and feel a million times better.
- On the morning before, I do a light skincare routine. Not too much moisture and not too much dryness. I simply cleanse, serum, and use a light amount of moisturizer.
- Light yet substantial breakfast. I typically will go for a healthy protein smoothie/shake if possible. Light, filling, and healthy! Perfect way to not feel too full but to make sure you give your body the right nutrients for a successful photoshoot.
