Do NOT use mineral make up. Mineral make up is awesome for wearing out every day but in photographs it can give a very undesirable shine. Professional photographer and make up artist Dana Tate recommends Revlon Colorstay Makeup that you can buy right in your local drugstore or if you are looking for a high end option M.A.C. Studio Fix . The biggest thing to remember is that you want a matte finish. You don't want anything that has shimmer in it. Apply your make up with a foundation brush or and/or beauty sponge. This will ensure a nice even application. Applying with your fingers will result in uneven streaky application that will be extremely noticeable in your photo.
