What should our seniors do to prepare for their makeup session?

When preparing for a photo session, never tan or spray tan the week of the shoot. Always wash your face and come to your appointment with clean, fresh skin, unless otherwise told by the artist to come "foundation ready" (which means to wear your normal foundation only.) Also, drink lots of water to hydrate your skin and maintain the overall health of your skin.

How important is it to get enough rest the night before their senior photo session?

One should always come to the makeup appointment well rested, so get some good rest a couple days prior or at least the night before. Remember, it's always more difficult to correct puffiness, red, swollen or darkness under the eyes. Plenty of rest also allows for better responsiveness to the camera and direction given.

What makeup line does Michael use on our seniors?

Michael almost always exclusively use MAC Cosmetics.  There are a few others that he incorporates, after 19 years, he finds that not just one line has everything that a good makeup artist (MUA) needs.
