If you’re looking to edge up your photo shoot , here are a few tips to achieve that.
When picking out your outfit, choose a article of clothing or accessory that clashes with the rest of your outfit, whether it’d be the style or color.Hair style cannot be perfect, you want a good bit of messiness. You want a lot of volume too, try applying some volume mousse on the roots and make sure to blow dry your hair upside down. A little bit of teasing on the top is great! Then you can just throw your hair around a bit without worrying about any pieces sticking out. You can also wear a couple of clip on hair pieces of a different color, it always adds a little spunk to your look. Your make up should be more dramatic, try a good bit of smoky shadow, or a bright color shadow such as blue or pink, etc. Don’t be afraid of the black eyeliner on the top lid, and bottom(this creates a big pop! making your eye color stand out beautifully). Now since you are dramatizing your eyes, don’t go too dark on the lips, you always want to pick one area of your face you want to stand out. Go all out with your mascara or get some false lashes!
Choose a location that is unorthodox ex:old warehouse, run down building,bulky bridges, etc. Your surroundings can affect your emotions, impacting your facial expressions and body movements, it is very hard to show edginess when you are surrounded with flowers and white picket fences .
We all have a bit of attitude in all of us, you wanna try to bring that out as much as possible. You wanna try to get out of your comfort zone and try new non traditional poses.
