    Don't Overdo the Makeup

    You may think that this is the time to go all-out with your makeup. Whatever you do, don't. "This is not the time to try something new, like 12-inch fake eyelashes … A little bit goes a long way" Bloch says, adding that you should pick one thing that's easy to finesse but doesn't require constant upkeep. "Bold red lips are great, but don't do this and a smoky eye. Pick one. You only want to take a lip gloss and maybe some mascara with you, so know your limits." Ying Chu, Marie Claire's beauty director, offers up a great trick for intensifying your eyes for photos without looking overly made up: "Take a black kohl pencil and dot it along your lash line, between your eyelashes, before applying mascara."
