FAQ's... News & Makeup

Hey everyone! Hope your Christmas holiday was great! I got some amazing makeup gifts- check my YouTube channel for a haul video covering that type of thing! (I'll be posting it soon.) For now, I wanted to address some questions I get quite often about my job and how it works with makeup, hair, etc. Perhaps this will be of help to anyone hoping ot one day work in TV broadcasting, or just something interesting for those who watch the news and wonder how it all comes together!

Do you do your own hair and makeup when you anchor the news?
Yep! Many people (including myself before I got in the business) believe every TV station has a makeup artist/hair person that styles the anchors hair and does their makeup, but the truth is that usually only very large stations have that. Your national news like CNN, Headline News, Fox News, etc... all have makeup and hair people. Some of the bigger cities likely do have someone as well, but you'd be surprised at how many places leave this up to the anchors themselves. Keep in mind, some stations may give their employees an "allowance" for makeup or clothes, or pay for them to get their hair done if it's at a certain place. Many stations may also have consultants that come in every so often to make sure the anchors have a good "look" for TV. Personally, I'm glad that I get to do my own hair and makeup. Though it would be less stressful at times, it's definitely something I love and enjoy!

Do you do your makeup a lot differently for the news?
My news makeup does differ from my everyday look in a few ways...
- More face color (like bronzer, blush) to stand up to bright lights in the studio
- More contouring- it seems to come off really well on camera
- More defined eyeliner- a soft line simply doesn't do enough to bring out the eyes on camera
- A "smokey" eye for news = browns, plums rather than blacks- they seem to cast too much of a shadow
- Overall a more careful makeup application- especially where under-eye concealer is concerned

Do your TV clothes come from a wardrobe or are they your own?
I wear my own clothes. Ever since I've become a full time anchor, I'm always looking for sales and good deals on clothes I think would look nice on air. You can't afford to spend a lot on any one thing, because having a large selection is more important (to me). I fear looking the same everyday so I try to be creative with jewelry too like an interesting necklace or earrings.

What face makeup works well under the bright studio lights?
What I use isn't very expensive! Though I do like to switch it up from time to time, lately I've been using Rimmel Lasting Finish Foundation- and I set it with Mary Kay loose powder. The combo seems to work great- keeps from getting my shiny and lasts well beyond the newscast. My concealer is kinda pricey though- Bobbi Brown Corrector and Creamy Concealer duo. It's great for the circles! :)

Are you allowed to wear colorful makeup on air?
It's sort of an unwritten rule that the makeup you wear for the news should be fairly neutral. Especially when it comes to eyes. I do sometimes wear colors, but it's nothing really bold and in your face or glittery or anything like that. With lips, I can get away with a pretty big range-- I've worn deep reds, reds, pinks, nudes, etc. The whole theory on not being too colorful with the makeup is to not distract from what you're saying.

Hope this was an interesting post for you! Please let me know if there are any other questions I didn't cover! These are just some of the ones I get the most. Have a great day!
