- STUDIO MAKE UP: Studio make up is the kind of make up you need when you are a model in studio or an actor/actress on set. Make-up during photography is seen as a snapshot. Photographers, art directors and beauty editors often use photo retouching and although it seems retouching is a solution for many things, it is my job as a make-up artist to keep that to a minimum. When a camera is used, we lose the 3D effect on the objects we photograph. Therefore I do my absolute best to create definition and depth into the faces I get in front of me.
