Say cheese!

After years of experience behind the camera working with top models, photographer Nigel Barker knows all about what makes his subjects camera-ready. Now, he's working on prettifying the regular people (so you can kiss those hours spent Photoshopping your selfies goodbye.)

Women’s Wear Daily reports that Nigel and his makeup artist wife, Cristen Barker, are set to launch two makeup lines together, Beauty Equation and BE Cosmetics.

The two lines aim to target slightly different audiences. While retailers have not yet been finalized, shoppers can expect to find the Barkers' more high-end line, Beauty Equation, at department stores with prices starting at $25.

For those who choose to save rather than splurge on their beauty products, BE Cosmetics is set to target younger makeup buyers with products starting at a more affordable $8.

Though Nigel is taking an active role in the production of the lines alongside his missus, he can't be kept from behind the camera for long. Look out for his images in both lines' ad campaigns before the products launch sometime next year.
