If glam is the game, the Dolls are co-captain of the team. Getting ready for photo-shoots is our new favorite past time! Like any good team-player, we are here to share all of our favorite tips and tricks to take your beauty routine to the next level and ready for your very own photo-shoot – yes you! Say it together now… #GlamGameStrong
When you feel good, you look good. Our positive attitude stems from our health and wellness routine. Keeping our mind and bodies in check with daily workouts, yoga, and eating right helps us channel our positivity and let it radiate on the outside. Even Elle Woods knows,
Working out gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy…”
Any time you are up close and in front of the camera, you’re the star of the show! Make sure you’ve gotten enough sleep the night before. Start your morning with warm lemon water to drink, and a hydrating face mask to stay glowing all day – the Dolls love When’s Last Choice Bio-cellulose Sheet Mask when your skin is thirsty and needs that extra glass of water.
Our number one rule is to have fun! The Dolls love to pick outfits that complement each other. These looks, from Bazar Chicago, are among some of our favorites. Talk about pattern play. We couldn’t help but get up close to some of the whimsical walls at The Kensington Roof Garden.
Your makeup should help you bring out your natural beauty, presenting your best self to the camera. The Dolls adore these products from Soap and Glory to tap into our natural beauty. Just click on the image to shop our fave products. We guarantee your beauty routine a re-UP!
We’re always blasting our favorite tunes on Spotify during a shoot – we love to play fun beats and switch up our poses to the music. Music is one of our biggest inspirations. Keeping props on hand – like these fantastical balloons from Paris312 keeps things interesting!
Play around with angles until you find your best one. Moving into slightly different versions of the same pose ensures you will at least get one good shot, if not more. Smile, laugh, tilt your head, elongate your neck, play with your hair, throw on shades — change it up!
Keep it FIERCE. The Dolls admit that we always have a blast together! Keeping your best friend in tow allows you to really feel free and creative during a photo-shoot. You can always invite one of your besties to join you on a photo-shoot, even behind the scenes to make you giggle. Outtakes our some of our favorite moments.
Keep your underlying message close. We always try our best to portray Peace, Positivity and Friendship. What message do you want to send?
