When booking a boudoir photography session, one of the first questions you should ask yourself is: am I doing my own hair & makeup? If you have any doubts when it comes to this question, you should hire a professional. Not only will a pro be able to apply your makeup in a way that flatters your skin tone, eye color, and lip color, but they will be able to assess the correct eye makeup application according to your eye shape, the appropriate application of highlighter, bronzer, and contouring powder in order to take weight off your face, slim your features, and/or accentuate them; but they will also be able to coach you on how to achieve these looks at home as well. At The Boudoir, co-owner and photographer, Bobbie Sue Baker is also a licensed cosmetologist & makeup artist who is able to visually enhance your assets and make you look your personal best. She uses the best in professional makeup and hair products to ensure that your hair & makeup not only last through the session, but even for hours afterward so you can schedule celebratory drinks with your girlfriends afterwards, for being so ballsy. Besides, the girls are going to want to know all about it anyway. Or, go one step further and keep your boutique hotel room for the night, don’t change out of that sexy lingerie, and invite your love up to the room for the night. Whatever you decide to do, you will be confident in knowing you look amazing.
Meagan contacted us shortly before Valentine’s Day with the idea to surprise her boyfriend with a shoot as his gift, and hired us to also do hair & makeup. Provided with a photograph of the look Meagan was trying to achieve, Bobbie Sue adjusted to ensure the look worked with Meagan’s features.
