I was watching a TV show on the SI swimsuit photo shoots and there were several scenes of stylists rubbing something on the arms and legs of the models. Was this baby oil or something to put a shine on the skin? I have also noticed that a lot of Maxim photos have a rather dramtic shine on the skin which does not seem to come from diffuse glow. My question is how do you get that shine on the skin when you want it?

There are a lot of different things people put on their skins. Believe it or not, PAM cookie spray is a popular one. Its used all the time for body builders. Has a slight yellow tint and of course since its oil you get the shine.

Hi! Here are a few tips to get that oily look:

1. Use a lotion with a shimmer base to it. Either pick up a makeup product with a shimmer to it and mix it with your lotion, or pick up a lotion that has shimmer in it already. Many different types of makeup lines carry products with a shimmer base, such as shimmer foundation, shimmer gold eyeshadow (which you can crush and add to your lotion), highlighting sticks.... Just mix with any basic type of lotion. You can also get that new lotion by Jergens that has a shimmer base to it.

2. Use baby oil. This can be messy..especially if you want to shoot the model on a couch, or chair... I usually only use this when I shoot the model standing up..so that I don't get oil stains on anything else. Very very hard to get out..hahah trust me.. But even though it is messy, it gives a great oily look to the model. Try to get the baby oil that is in the gel form. It is wayyy easier to apply.

3. Mixture of baby oil and water. I know this sounds strange...oil and water? Just get a clean spray bottle, add in a tablespoon of baby oil, pour in 1/2 - 1 cup of water, shake before spraying, and have the model rub it into her skin. It provides a great shine without getting too oily. You'd want to use the traditional baby oil instead of the gel type.

Ok! I hope this has helped. Actually I have a ton of other tricks that I use so if you have any other questions, let me know. I am a makeup artist as well as photographer so I try to figure out new and fun ways to achieve different looks. Let me know if it works well in your pictures!

This was done with baby oil with some glitter mixed in. Those crafty makeup artists!

rub on babyoil than with a mister lightly mist the areas. It gives a beeded up droplet look good for swimsuit stuff.

PAM is great. Baby oil is toooo shiny, and creates harsh reflections.

A glycerine and water mix is good in a mister for water droplets.

In studio, if you want just a very slight sheen, a generic Jergin's lotion works good.

One cool trick that I do, mostley for bikini contests, is to get a intense moisturizer, mix it with a dark bronze loose face powder and throw in a dash of body glitter. Model needs to apply nude and let dry for about 15 minutes, then dress. Gives a good even skin tone with a little shine. Kinda like body make-up.

Glycerin...


You can buy it in your local craft store....mix half and half with water....beads like oil....photographs like water....is easier to remove...and actually as it is a key ingredient in some high end soaps....is good for the models skin...

Shiny....

How much face powder do you mix with what quantity of moistuizer?

Do you mix it a bowl and let the models dip in? Or do you apply it with some sort of large applicator?

Does this provide an even tone across their bodies or do they have to move it around with make-up applicators?

Do they apply this mixture to their face and then apply make-up? If they do apply it to their face, how does it work around the hailine?

Sorry, there seems to more than a few questions.

One last one. Am I clueless or what? (I is a coleje and hi skool graduit aftr al,)
