Acting : Headshot question by Dave Stair

Dave Stair

Headshot question

A bit confused. I know of course that a headshot needs to look like the actor pictured but is there any legitatimate use for make up for photo shop for a male's headshot say just to downplay some eye bags or is that going to be seen as dishonest by most casting people and tick them off?

Just sport your wrinkles, they add character.

Your headshot represents you. Anything else is dishonest and can come back to bite you if it doesn't represent you accurately. Besides, what you see as flaws may be exactly what the casting director sees as pluses.

Tony Semanik said it best. Follow his advice.
