Boudoir Shoot

Hi Bellas,

How was your weekend? Mine was exhausting. I had two big gigs Friday and Saturday that tuckered me out! I'll post pics soon! I was soooo close to calling in sick to work this morning but I toughed it out, lol. Back to the post!

A few weeks ago, I did a boudoir makeover for a client. I've done a post on this in the past, but just to recap I'll explain the background on a Boudoir Shoot. These days, the latest trend is for brides to give their fiancees sexy pictures as a wedding present. They usually hire a makeup artist, a photographer, and then a nice hotel room to take the pics.

My client actually found me on google and has been a faithful reader ever since! She was nervous that she wouldn't be able to pull off a smokey look even though she absolutely loves the Kim Kardashian look. Another concern of hers was her undereye circles. I knew we could fix that right away. It's amazing how different you look once the undereye circles are gone.

When you work with a client, you have to make sure you can appropriately guide them on what looks best, but also find a balance in making sure they like it as well. For instance, after applying the lipcolor, the client was a little overwhelmed because she wasn't used to darker lips. I easily solved the problem by removing the lipliner but keeping the same colors. Problem solved! Another trick I used on this makeover was shaping the eyebrows without tweezing them. The client had just gotten her eyebrows threaded, but not to her liking. I helped her out a bit by using cream concealer to even them and thin them out a bit. Just apply the concealer where you want to hide excess hair and it looks like you just had your eyebrows done!

Per my client's request, I'm only going to show the after picture :)
