Helpful Wardrobe Suggestions for Headshots

Morton Visuals TrainingHelpful Wardrobe Suggestions for Headshots

Since these questions come up constantly, my favorite makeup artist Mary Erickson put together this handy list of considerations when preparing for your professional headshots.

  • Bring shirts with a collar as well as different necklines.
  • Bring at least 6 different tops to choose from.
  • No sleeveless shirts for headshots, they can make the arms look big and skin below the face takes the attention away from the face.
  • No solid white.
  • Solids usually work best, stay away from patterns and busy prints.
  • Bring a lint brush or lint roller, fuzz will show on dark colors.
  • Make sure your clothes are pressed and clean – very few photographers have irons or extra time. Photo retouching on soiled clothes will usually cost extra.
  • Stay away from clothes with big buttons or ornaments that shine and compete for attention.
  • If you wear earrings they should be small studs. Keep jewelry at a minimum, because anything flashy will distract from you.

Mary’s website is full of useful information, especially for the aspiring or “up & coming” makeup artists – check out her Q&A page! And if you want to gauge whether or not she knows what she’s talking about, check out her resumé!
