This prop is pretty messy and needs to be the absolute last thing you do in a photo shoot. In my experience, if a shoot is going south, this is a great prop to reach for because it is fun and brings easy smiles.
Tips for the shoot:
- Dress them is something you like but is probably not your favorite outfit, there is no guarantee they won’t get lipstick on it.
- Bring a compact or small mirror so they can see themselves.
- Buy a separate tube of red lipstick. The tube is usually pretty shot after this shoot, so don’t use your favorite lipstick.
