Campbells tips for getting camera ready...

I don't drink or smoke. I always encourage my clients to lay off those things, especially before a red carpet event! Absolutely no caffeine either, it's a great detox. If you are coloring or changing your hair, do that at least a week prior! Facials are great. If you are going to have a facial, make sure you do it at least 10-14 days prior incase of breakouts! I love Sheet masks, especially Korean ones! My favorite at the moment is SKII. I would recommend a spray tan. VERY light and do it a week before, DO NOT spray face. Drink heaps of water. Just be confident. 

Nate is my favorite photographer in LA! He just gets it! Makes you feel special and confident. You will get an amazing result.

Hasbladys tips for getting camera ready...

A week before your shoot NO salt, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, or sunbathing. Bleaching strips for the teeth are a must. Any hair coloring should be done a week before so you have time to change it if needed. Drink lots of water. Get lots of sleep. Stay calm & organized. Get a facial ten days before. Get your eyebrows done. Blow dry the day of or night before with a retouch day of shoot. Do not try new products or foods as they may cause a break out or bloating.
